Biotech, yes you may be right with the headline EPS figure quoted. However, accountants like to display Conservative figures especially as we wait for the final decision on Hinkley due soon. Long term, it’s good to see that JP has reinforced the message that they will pump investments into the US and look to deliver growth. Why would they invest in the U.K. if the regulator caps returns on investment to what in his opinion is acceptable? At least in the US profit is not a dirty word and it promotes investment and benefits for customers, shareholders and staff

Underlying EPS was 59.5p from the results last week. Excludes the one off gain included in the statutory EPS. I'd say we are about a fair valuation now -last few years we may have been at a stretched valuation due to the low interest rates which may finally be coming to an end. NG is my biggest single share so I'd be happy for me to be proved wrong, but as its an income share for life I guess it doesn't matter too much.

Dr Biotech, EPS 69p ( Conservative fig ) price £8.8 pe approx 12.9. EPS will rise as US business takes a hold and the U.K. Distn business which is heavily regulated and delivers low income is sold off and NG concentrates on delivering income. A lot of the financials don’t update the pe regularly. If you take the FT which is supplied data by Morningstar, they were quoting a pe of 15 when the price was £11.64. They were still showing a pe of 15 when the price dropped to £7.30. Which begs the question was it an omission or was it trying to manipulate? Motives????

EPS = 207.10 for year end 2017 is the one they are referring to I see.

I wouldn't trust that figure. If you look at other sites (ie HL) then its about 15.5 Very simply look at the last results - EPS c60p. I'd always try and add debt too - but most sites don't so that.

"All things considered, such as the P/E versus historical levels and the 200 day MA and so on, I don't want to hold it any longer,...." P/E showing at Just over 4 in the financials here. That can't be high by historical standards....or are you saying that the low figure is bad?

With a safe and growing yield over 5% cannot see many other shares I would want to be in if we have a melt down or melt up for that case I require the income .

the FTSE is not that much higher than it was more than 18 years ago at the start of 2000

Yes. That was my last holding. Cashed out now. 10yr US is over 3.05%. FTSE at record high. All the problems in the economy that are not being addressed: wage growth, inflation, rising oil, weak pound, Brexit, collapse in retail, near record levels of household debt...You got to be one hell of an optimist to be buying anything with the markets at these levels. Anyway, it's being tipped as a buy now in things like idiots chronicle and motley Fool, so the only people buying now are private investors. I always have a target price and then I reconsider if I want to hold. All things considered, such as the P/E versus historical levels and the 200 day MA and so on, I don't want to hold it any longer, though it may go higher. Bon chance.

yes £11+ would put it back on the long term trend line on the header chart, although I could see it oscillating around £10 for quite a while

Trends up and down go on longer than people think could easily go well over £10 imo am holding for long term but if I was tempted to take profits it would be over £11.

I presume that NG are expecting an electricity spike today when the service ends - I might boil the kettle just before that just in case ;-)
