14/3 NG to drop back, as the money chases the recovery,
rates on hold would be good for builders/banks

Hi unastubbs,

The CPIH is the Year to date figure. So come April, when the March, year to date, is published, this is the data that they will use.
They used to use RPI but then changed it.

John Pettigrew has declared that the dividend will be based on CPIH.

It has come down a bit and may probably come down again especially with the budget on 15th March and the BoE meeting on the 23rd March.

"last year’s divi in total was 50.97p (17.21p +33.76p) x 1.1 ( 10% CPIH) = 56.067p less interim announced today of 17.84 = 38.227p for a final divi"

the latest CPIH is for January at 8.8% with an implied dividend (using the math aboove) of 37.61p. When NG report on 18 May will they simply use the latest available data provided by ONS (most likely March) for their calculation? Or is there some arcane smoothing process taking the whole year's inflation in to account?

thanks! Grid c. 4.5% of my portfolio.

Mike24,

For many years the FTSE was 1/2 that of the DOW plus 200 points. But since 2016 the FTSE and the shares that form the index has been undervalued while many index’s across the world have grown.

If the FTSE kept pace with the DOW and other index, the FTSE should be 16985 and not sub 8000.

UK listed stock grossly undervalued.

Well, luckily that worked well. Even made a 400 quid profit after all costs and stamp. Isa allowance used (for one isa), cgt allowance used, and a bit of cash (luck not judgement). Next batch outside an isa will have to wait until April. Income back up again thankfully.

You should think of the employees driving value for the company now who have defined contribution pensions. Excessive DB schemes ruined old age for everyone else!

This is the only share I have not in an isa. (I also hold a lot in our isas, nice tax free income from those!) Bearing in mind the imminent lowering of the cgt exemption, I've just sold about half which gives me my cgt allowance for this year. I'll tfr the cash into the isas, and buy them back there. Just nicely fits into the isa transfer allowance too!

BUFFALO, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 24, 2023 / The National Grid Foundation is contributing $500,000 to further support western New Yorkers who continue to recover from the historic blizzard that impacted Buffalo and much of the region in December. The funding will be distributed to the same charitable organisations that received $500,000 from National Grid shareholders on Jan. 12, bringing the total recovery-effort funding from both organisations to $1 million

National Grid increased the number of shares in circulation, from 3.4billion to 3.69 billion (diluting the value of shareholder’s holdings).


After all, the shareholders own the Company not the Directors who are simply Employees, but the behaviour of our BoD gives rise to criticism that they forget who are the real bosses.

They are quick to issue new shares to fund projects and remunerate Directors, but refuse to even consider a discretionary increase to NG pensions above 5%, even when RPI was approx 12% in Sept ( Sept RPI sets the pension increase). In normal times the increase is capped at 5%, but they do have the ability to award a discretionary rise in excess of 5% in exceptional circumstances, which in 1991, did so proudly. Many pensioners receive small pensions ( not all ex Employees held responsible positions) and its these pensioners that are struggling with the cost of living.

I would also like the BoD to concentrate on getting our share price to £19/ share. Not unreasonable for a Utility, which is supposed to be one of the best in the world. If a mediocre car manufacturer can be worth nearly $1 trillion ($1000Billion), surely an essential world famous utility should hold a value of more than $45 billion or £37billion. At £19 / share the market cap will be £70 Billion, a Company providing essential services to every man, woman and child.

The objective of a CEO is to increase shareholder value. The many other directors have different responsibilities for various operations.

Viscount1, I don't disagree. I was aware that commercially ESO is of no real significance, but will be interesting to see what the compensation works out to be. Prob cash that has to be target to the network somehow. Nothing Free without strings, not that it is free!!

My point was not that it affects NG profits, but to illustrate the idiocracy running the UK. The decision to nationalize the ESO, incidentally, was made by one Kwasi Kwarteng, who I think we can all agree has a sterling track record in government.

ESO only accounts for £90m of the £2.5b profit. JP said to me that HM Gov will ensure NG will be compensated to take ESO out of NG’s hands even though the ESO has been separated by being completely ring-fenced already.

Viscount1, sorry I had forgotten all about NG ESO. I knew it was being muted but hadn't realised that it was all going ahead, also don't have access to FT so will look around for more info.

Anyway, glad everyone seems well.

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.
