NG has a bit of catching up to do.. But happy with the 5.5% yield compared to cash given current interest rates, we could even be paying the banks to look after our cash post pandemic?!

Skinny: Post 7518? Hydrogen power is a good bet imo. There are a few related companies. Plug 👍

UtyINV - thanks - I've been here a long, long time :-) I'm also a fan of the burgeoning Hydrogen economy - see post 7518. Edit - corrected!

Skinny, this weather is good for NG revenues and tight margins (NG not responsible for a lack of Generation) only reinforces the argument that NG has made to ofgem and Gov about the need for more green and sustainable energy generation. Don’t forget any new Generation needs infrastructure and system connections. The revenue in the second half has always brought in a higher percentage of its earnings.

I see the FTSE is in the doldrums yet again today whereas there is no stopping the DOW, there has been quite a divergence this year. The question is will the FTSE move towards closing the gap in 2021? FTSE100: ...DOW: ...

All agreed re pnn then, after reading your post on pnn elsewhere Pierre I did about 10 mins more focused research on the point you raised and got out for a slight gain recently fortunately, so thanks for that! Their options for the Viridor cash are clearly limited with some gone already. The Canadian teacher's fund used to be after SVT but don't seem to be now and with bill defaults likely I decided to give that a miss so then looked at the miners deciding RIO looks promising. Also looked at housebuilders eg PSN but possible trouble their when favourable stamp duty and buy to let changes end.

You and me both! Have kept my HUR holding in case I ever run out of toilet paper; never say never I guess, but I think that there are far better risk/reward stocks in other sectors than O&G these days. AIMO of course. Miners certainly make up a good percentage of my holdings now, especially precious metals miners, as I think the gold and silver markets are going to continue to fare well in 2021 and beyond - but if they do not, I still feel comfortable with a 10 year plus horizon on that front. I do actually hold a few NG as well, although first time of commenting on them. These I like to think/hope can be tucked away and left alone. GLA.

thanks lw, got it already 😀 avoiding oil stocks now btw so no BP or RDSB despite the high yields; was interested in pnn until I realised they have halved the Divi post waste business sale - thanks Pierre how could I have missed that lol! Rio looks like a better idea.

Hi bountyhunter. Based on your criteria (and your request!), I would also consider GSK. Recent big non exec director purchase, good dividend and while it has disappointed this year, as so often seems to happen with FTSE100 companies, I think it may surprise to the upside next year. Have been stake-building GSK for a few years now. It is certainly not one of my high performing stocks to date - far from it - but I have been treating it a bit like a bank account that pays a respectable interest rate! Obviously, plenty of critics, risks etc and not a tip as such either.

Cheers UI, after an eventful year and dabbling in many Covid stocks my interest has turned to large cap high yielders such as NG. SSE TSCO AZN ... Any specific suggestions welcome. I've been holding AZN (and OXB) for quite a while now in anticipation of positive sentiment when the Astra Oxford vaccine is approved, widely expected to be Monday or Tuesday next week, at last! It's not for profit during the pandemic but not after for developed country sales and sentiment should carry AZN up, I hope! Best wishes to you and your family and all the regulars here for a great Christmas and for good health and prosperity in what I hope is a much happier 2021 for us all.

5.6% yield looking pretty good here vs negligible interest on cash. Ok there is the capital risk but dividends have increased year on year since 1998 through thick and thin.

I noticed the amount of ADR’s that have been shorted in the US has more than doubled two weeks ago. With the Ofgem final decision on Tuesday the share price has risen catching the shyster hedgies out. So it’s not surprising that the Yanks are taking advantage of bad Brexit news to buy back the shares that have been shorted. Push down the stock by reiterating the bad news and try and buy back when it falls.

National Grid plc Ofgem's RIIO-2 Final Determination published Ofgem has today published its Final Determination for the RIIO-2 framework covering our UK Electricity and Gas Transmission businesses for the period April 2021 to March 2026, as well as the Electricity System Operator. We will now review in detail the full package contained within the Final Determination to see whether it delivers sufficient investment to maintain resilient and reliable networks, provides the flexibility required to enable the delivery of critical infrastructure to achieve the UK's net zero ambitions, and provides an appropriate overall financial package. We expect Ofgem to publish its statutory consultation on the proposed licence modifications required to implement the Final Determination shortly. The consultation period will be followed by a period for Ofgem to consider responses, at the end of which Ofgem will publish its decision to modify the licences. Relevant parties have 20 working days from the day on which the decision to modify the licences is published to appeal any part of the proposed licence modifications to the Competition and Markets Authority. Given the current expected timeline, we anticipate that we will make any final decision on whether to accept or appeal the licence modifications implementing Ofgem's Final Determination to the CMA no earlier than late February 2021.
