Uty Hi you are right about transaction costs of say 5p a share need to be taken into account. With a share like NG it may spend a few years trading between say 9.00 and 10.00. If you accept this you can trade from time to time and mainly do Ok with the dividend and small gains offsetting smaller losses. If you are not prepared to buy and sell you pick up the divis and have less hassle. I suppose I need to get a life and stop looking at the NG share price.

Mark1000, If you were going to sell anyway then yes your deliberation is feasible and logical. If you are long then you have got to factor in buying back costs if the sole purpose for selling is to reap more reward than the 32p divi which takes effect from close of today.

Hi will this go over 10.00 this afternoon? If it goes to say 10.00 will folk sell before Xd. A few years back I kept for the 30p div and the share fell 45p to 50p . My gut tells me hold but a sharp rise this afternoon will sell.

As long as you know Minerv what you say you are! And BlackRock just announced halving its holding to 131519800.

BlackRock have got the right idea! On their holding of 238,695,607 shares or 6.85% they will collect £76,382,690 @32p a share dividend and I do not see them whinging about humanity, etc!

"National Grid’s blackout boss John Pettigrew lands £5m payday" No offence but it is 'money for old rope' isn't it. Any human worth their salt could deliver the same mediocrity of a massive regulated monopoly.

Made me laugh at the incompetence of the FED and the administration. Those cheques being sent out to everyone is not without issues. It’s been reported that $1.4 billion in cheques have been posted to dead people. So if anyone criticises our Gov look what’s happening over the pond. 😂

Investorchampion, I never believe some of the stuff printed, especially that coming out of the mouths of those with an agenda. When NG published results they said there may be a hit of $400 million for US bad debts arising from Covid-19. This was immediately translated by the Hedge Fund Shysters as $1billion. Whatever the figures are, I can assure you those that have an agenda will exaggerate the figures to make it appear as dire. In the US people are getting cheques from the Fed, this is to pay for food, and utility bills not partying. Those who can’t pay mortgages can apply for mortgage holidays. Give people the idea that they can default without consequences there will be a plethora of non payers. Utility bills are there at the top of priorities as in Maslow’s theorem ie food, Roof , warmth, light, at the top of the list. Holidays, drinking, protesting are not essential expenditures/pastimes.

KROWELET : Absolutely agree with the sentiments expressed ...particularly having been 'robbed' of a recent Barclays dividend which was pulled right at the last minute. Have switched into NG and SSE recently . Not surprised by the upgrades . More to follow methinks. bwm2 ; Very pleased with the declared Final Dividend. Well run company. AS they say you cannot go far wrong in a company which consistently reveals 'what it says on the label' ..so to speak.

When the dividend was announced, the time weighted annualised return to the payment date was circa 20%

Agree with that, Pierre, grateful for any divis, these days. Been moving some investments into well covered ITs, at least for this year - hmm, and maybe for longer.

I wasn't expecting a Divi increase in these covid dominated times. Well done ng.Also assets up 9%, which I think mean's the UK regulated earnings can increase 9% (assuming regulated assets are up 9%).elec demand has been down recently, which may have affected profits a little. Overall, I'm pleased with the results - getting any Divi these days looks good to me.

I have a smallish holding here but have always been concerned about government policy. Does anyone know what starmers labour policy is on utilities? Unlike corbyn i think he has a very good chance of becoming the next pm.

👍 Good results, 32p Final divi. Impairments of £400m expected due to covid-19, mainly in US. So IMV interims in Jan might be slightly less than expected. But NG are very good at recovering potential losses.
