1carus,

I think you mean Nationalise rather than Privatise (Post 8405)? Starmer has said he doesn't want to Nationalise and wants the Gov to work with the Private Companies. Though once in power, can we trust them????

The reason why the price is stagnant at ATM is because it always does after the interims have been paid.

As Long term holders, you will know the second half is when the greatest earnings for the Company are pulled in. Looking at historic prices, I expect a change, to the upside come April. Yes, Hedge Funds, parasites IMO, look to take profit and drag the price down in the hope of buying back cheap. That's how they make their money. They don't produce anything, they only destroy.

NG bought WPD, a lucrative geographical and customer demographic, with the intention to benefit from the installation and income from EV charging points. Unfortunately, EV's have not attracted the best PR recently with Range Anxiety. That is why until I can comfortably travel 600 miles between charges (one of my Car's easily ranges 600 miles on a tank), and be guaranteed access to a Charging point without people resorting to fights over charging points, I will stay away from EVs.

Let's see what April / May brings, regarding the SP, as last year it hit £12.455 on 18th May 2022.

Should be no reason why this Stock should languish in the area it has been. As an International, highly efficient and reputable company, that is looking to expand and the innovations promoted by NG Ventures, I cannot see why the share price shouldn't be in excess of £19/share. Especially when you compare some of the exagerated valuations of some companies ,ie, car manufactures that make mediocre electric vehicles (Tesla).

The NG ESO is being nationalised.

Last time I checked NG earnings were roughly 50/50 UK vs US, but it is perceived as British.

Not sure NG is UK centric, most of it's revenue is generated in the USA as far as I can remember. Not heard about the Torys nationalising NG., hell they won't even tax the energy generators and that includes the windfarm operators who are literally minting money at the moment. Corbyn and Labour did a lot of damage to the share price in the run up to the last general election in the hope of not having to pay fair value for it etc. And even if they dont target NG, they will target the generators and by symbiosis it will adversely affect NG.

NG has taken a bit of a battering because it is UK-centric, and the "moron risk premium" therefore applies. When a country has a government that is both incompetent and corrupt then its markets get marked down accordingly, and fairly.

I do not share your pessimism on a future Labour government though: they would have little money to play with and would probably cosy up to industry rather than nationalise where possible. NG is well regarded and competent so I cannot see them rocking that boat.

Note that it is the current "conservative" government that has decided to nationalise the NG ESO, because more government is always better.

viscount1 ... long term holder, but I would have thought that the momentum from america would have kicked in. The moment we get wind of a Labour government and 'we are going to tax/privatise these companies' and the share price will be back at sub £9. the clock is ticking on that one. I was hoping that NG, over the last 5 years, would have provided clear guidance on how they are mitigating that even those at an £8 buy in and have held for a long time still risk losing there shirt here. Maybe I have missed something and also the general lack of posting here by those way more informed about the industry than me. I just don't see the plan and neither does the markets it appears.

I own NG because it is a reliable high-earner with good management. Growth is likely to be low but steady given electrification (new grids, storage, interconnectors) and the ability to run rings around the UK government.

You probably should not buy this share in the hope of step-changes in earnings.

Kinda lack of news here. Is this just a divi income stock or is there real growth here associated with the American arm of the company and the requirement to somewhat beef up the grid here in the UK for the full scale electrification of everything? It's not exactly tied to energy costs as it doesn't produce, but where is the growth for this now. It just seems to bob up and down for no reason between 8.50 and 12.00 over a long cycle.

The lack of skilled workers boils down to Greedy Company Directors that will not Train people because it's cheaper to ship trained staff in and dump them when the going gets tough!

I sat at a boardroom table in the early 2000s and listened to our FD announce that were going to stop training staff because it raises their pay expectations.

We're going to reduce current staffing & aim for 30% agency staff replacements by the end of this financial year.

A 5% divi at this level and a high in August of closer to 1200 leads me to think there is more in the tank. It may take a while but I think north of 1100 this winter is likely.

Ex divi tomorrow, question is, will the share price continue rising or fall back to around 980 to close the gap.
