PO, Another good post! If we can see it why can't those working with the Energy Secretary see it too? If the Gov need help they should be consulting with those in the know, not listening to politicians and consumer groups who always want something for nothing. As for the Greens........let's not go there! I don't usually use expletives!

Isn't it funny that the government puts loads of tax on some hydrocarbons (petrol and alcohol) but wants to force the price down on other hydrocarbons (natural gas, i.e. methane) ? Doesn't sound like an integrated or coherent policy.

Well said m100, an excellent post and pov, nail on the head. The greens want this, the greens want that and even if they are very genuine in their beliefs, they don't seem to have any idea of the implications of their demands. Sadly, it looks like they have the ear of May, who simply thinks bills should be lower and the system should be better and more flexible to handle 'new' technology (by magic i suppose).. I'm afraid the influence of engineers in most areas has declined, and the grid's no different.

I would suggest that if you have to sell a house in the Midlands you would probably have to pay £500,000 more for a similar property in central LOndon. Also the usual coupling of NG with the the energy companies who are apparently do not operate under the same restrictions as NG. Biased reporting? Will this morning's Sp rise last until 4.35pm?

Ignore the type of newspaper just focus on the story: HTTP://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4701188/National-Grid-gives-new-boss-500-000-relocation-allowance.html One must ask; do shareholders believe shareholder value has been delivered?

Dogday, unfortunately imo you, and me, have notionally lost money recently, but i'm afraid you are incorrect in your view that you have been proved correct in your views by the price falling - there are several factors affecting the price more than the consolidation itself (which didn't affect the price one iota). But, while you seem to want to crow about being correct in your (incorrect) view, then why didn't you act on your view and not lose anything? Seems odd to me thinking 'this is going to plummet, so i'll hang on and lose lots of money'.

absolutely not as the price could have dropped to the same extent or more in any case just take a look at some of the other utilities, e.g. NG vs UU or CNE

Whatever the argument relating to share buybacks and share consolidations the net result of all this and the sale of the gas transmission system is that my share holding is worth less than it was before all this started. Corbyn has not helped I agree, but handing back the money as a special dividend was a signal of a company that has no future plans for expansion. I said this on this thread before it all happened and clever people using fancy theories said I was wrong.Now events and the share price shows I was 100% right,unfortunately.

prewar - from my point of view I thing the BoD should explain exactly why they are holding the bought back shares in treasury rather than cancelling them - also as already stated future earnings will need to be less to pay the forecast divi (maintaining the same cover) if some of the profits are not required to purchase shares for the scrip divi (and EPS will be less favourable if the shares have not been cancelled) so a bit of smoke and mirrors imo

Prewar, I believe my posts regarding Treasury shares have been explained. Without wishing to re-iterate maybe your answer is to read them again. Glad you are in Glen as IMO when the economy starts to improve and significant infrastructure projects in the US, U.K. China and round the world materialise, Miners will hopefully do well as well as Banks; but I doubt other posters want me to comment about other stocks on their NG bb. Take care👍

Uty Sorry should have made myself clearer - I'm trying to see the big deal about shares being held in Treasury and not cancelled vs being cancelled. You made a long post about it #5038, questions need to be asked at the AGM so must be important. I'm genuinely interested in the answer as to why it matters? If you could explain please? Unfortunately not in RIO, am in GLEN though, been a bit of a rollercoaster but done ok.

Prewar, Not sure what you mean 'leaking'. But with respect I have given enough info regarding Treasury shares. Though I doubt your enquiry is genuinely from an inquisitive point of view.😉 RIO's turnaround was collectively down to both restructure (incorporating concentrating on core activities,reducing debt and share but back) and obviously commodities. I never said it was solely down to share buy back. Commodity prices did go sky high at the start of this year but they have since fallen but RIO is still doing nicely. You should know as you stated 'you are in Miners', as I am 😀 Have a good day (MC?).

Uty re your posts about shares held in Treasury and not cancelled. For any simpletons like me could you explain in simple terms how value of the NG business is leaking. Perhaps you could compare the cashflows (most NG type investments will be based upon present value of future cashflows) of the two scenarios: 1. shares being cancelled and in the future shares being required to meet scrip divis, director bonuses etc 2. shares held in Treasury and used for the above purposes Try and keep it as simple as possible please. TIA As an aside re #5043 not sure I'd attribute much of the RIO increased share price to a share buyback. I think the prices of commodities in general have increased in the time period you quote and the outlook for future China output and thus demand from a key purchaser of commodities is looking stronger. Might be wrong though.....

NG are being closely correlated to Gilts but I believe that is too simplistic ie, Governments use different index's of inflation depending on the situation and what suits them at the time, NG use RPI only. The correlation does not take into account growth of the business. Yes the UK business is heavily regulated but the US regulator is more business friendly, also what about other unlicensed business that the UK regulator have no control over? The 'Board' should up their game in promoting growth that can deliver shareholder value irrespective of what the Gilt trends are.
