Tin hats on for the opening on Fri! NG dropped over the pond and if it follows the same path expect to see an 8p drop. Let's hope I am wrong!

But prices vary uty. Everyone can get very rich in retrospect. If the price went up 7% over the coming few days (or weeks in fact), then those who took the scrip would be in a better position than those who took the cash. It's swings and roundabouts - sometimes the price goes up between the fix and the allocation and the scrippers gain, and sometimes it doesn't. But there's always a gain in that it's the cheapest way to invest without any of the usual costs - and like everyone else, after the decision has been made, then you're at the mercy of the markets. Basically, the short term price shouldn't matter to scrippers since almost by definition, they are in it for the longish haul. I never take scrips btw, prefer to let the divis from several shares build up in the isa and then buy what i think is the best buy at the time.

Uty, dead right, very annoying. Still a good dividend and a good get rich slow stock. Can't believe current levels, should be £12 plus

I would imagine any investor who opted for the scrip dividend (instead of taking the cash) are pretty pis.ed off! Current price £9.65, scrip dividend price based on £10.33! That's 6.6% less than if you opted for cash. Before anyone says if you purchased shares it would cost 0.5% purchase tax, even accounting for that and the deals avail by various ISA platforms (cost to deal £5 - £12.5 commission / trade ) makes it more beneficial to have received the cash!!

it's not magic just predictable; My guess is that over the next two days the price will rise as investors re-invest the divi paid tomorrow, Weds 16th Aug. Divi = 29.1p / share My prediction Jan Interim Divi 15.7p Next Aug Final Divi 30.14p. However, all dependant on JC and JM do not get anywhere near 10 & 11 Downing Street.

MJ19, FWIW, Dividend will be paid 'week next Wednesday' where I would anticipate a share price rise, as it has done on numerous occasions, due to many investors re-investing the final dividend. However, there are a few uncertainties regarding Brexit the energy review and the many Institutional Investors (who can make markets move) who are still on holiday. We are getting close to the 1st Qrt update and thereafter, the run up to the interim results where we should have an indication of how the future strategy is unfolding. IMO the shares are cheap but I can only re-iterate it's IMO and you need to DYOR. I am sorry if this post has not been of any help.

Clever move by selling Gas Distn. Very costly business, labour intensive, draconian regulatory constraints. You would think OFGEM think NG is a charity. Though NG is increasing spend on UK infrastructure there is justification to build the US business even greater, where the regulatory regime is more business friendly. In the US whether Democrat or Republican, either are more switched on than our Government on how to reward business. As for Labour's plans if they get into power to take the country back to the bankrupt 1970's; forget it. Big new Interconnectors jointly owned by NG and Other European Companies will come on-line in 2019 and 2020 and they are on target :)) Just remember even if Labour do take back GSM (SO), the SO business contributes £70million out of a total profit of £2Billion. Currently 50% (prospects of even greater stake) of the business is in the USA , Interconnectors part owned by European Companies. Investments being poured into new innovative technological developments many with other private companies having a stake. DYOR. :))

JP and Gershon acknowledged share price was very depressed at the moment. Interesting comments from Directors and plans in place. Wouldn't be too worried about Corbyn and MacDonnell's nationalisation plans :)) !!!

Monday AGM! Hope JP has his tin Hat on. As for Sir Peter Gershon (Chairman), I hope his answers don't patronise as they have done in the past, leaving many analysts annoyed and with no option other than to write a poor review. Gershon is also chairman of Tate & Lyle

atlantic57 - "Trumps infra structure plans will be an added bonus" But looks like these plans are on the back burner while he fights off the media who are determined to find something to nail him on. Shame because the infrastructure plans, and the tax reforms, would help a lot of companies (and their employees) not just American ones.
