AGM Monday and I know a lot of ex Staff will be quizzing John Pettigrew why he thinks its acceptable to give staff a 9.8% pay rise and increase his own remuneration by 20% (from £6m to £7.2m), but doesn’t increase the pensions by more than 5% ( 4.8% average after adjustments for GMP).

In the 1990’s when inflation was as high as it is now, the Company exercised its discretion ( a right that can be taken by the Parent Company as depicted in the Scheme rules), to increase the pension rise above the 5% cap.

Maybe it explains the bad PR the current Board have attracted. Responsible Capitalism NOT displayed or practiced by JP et al.

Got to bear in mind too, that the US is currently under the Administration of a Left Wing, UK hating President (Left of Centre Democratic Party).

I honestly cannot understand why there is such hatred by Biden towards the UK. After all, Biden cannot remember his own name, so I would bet he doesn’t really know why he hates the UK, but goes along with it because he is told to take such a stance by others around him.
JFK was from Irish stock but loved the UK, same Democratic Party but not as Left as Biden’s administration is.

Markets hate extremes (either extreme right or extreme left - bad for business and growth)

Yanks shorting this like no tomorrow. Just hope one day they get caught out like when VW bought Porsche shares, if you remember VW caught the Hedge Parasites napping and did a ‘Trading Places’ action ( the film trading places when traders were caught with their pants down, so to speak).

But what happened then? All the Hedgies complained to the regulators that VW hadn’t let them know first 🤷

The world would be a better place with responsible capitalism if all Hedge Fund Shysters were made bankrupt!

Yanks at it again.

Was listening to the news today where they reiterated that Biden hates the UK and is the the worst President, from the UK’s perspective, ever to have held Office.

Looks like the US Traders that are ‘Shorting̵7; UK stock, feel the same about the UK as Biden does.

So much for the ‘Close’ relationship.

Ofgem are referring to the retail suppliers, eg Avo, bulb etc.

NG’s dividend policy has been given the blessing by Ofgem, realistic and affordable and shows responsible capitalistic balance

MIKE - 30 energy suppliers - I suggest these 30 are all ones that buy energy (from generators) and sell it to customers - taking the margin. A greet model but suffers when energy generation prices are not static.

todays news energy suppliers should retain profits
rather than payout returns to shareholders
ofgem " we must learn the lessons of the energy crisis"
after 30 suppliers have gone bust since 21

I hold some NG all year round but I sell off (varying amounts)pre ex divi day, much depends upon which dividend we are approaching.

Before last divi I was selling at 11.75 I've been buying back recently ca 10.40, I may one day be caught out, but I've made my cash for this year and the Divi I do receive, will be the icing.

Post 8508: Cash will be king……… I can see your point.

But isn’t that what Andrew Bailey is really trying to do? Convince you to convert assets into cash and then rob you via high inflation, before any interest rise given by banks offsets any losses you encounter by the inflation.
He has been saying for years that inflation is transitional but times ahead will be tough. So that tends to fool people into converting assets into cash. But Governments and Treasuries destroy cash wealth by allowing inflation to run riot. This is clearly depicted in Andrew Craig’s book ‘How to win the World’ (great book - 3rd edition has all the info and can be picked up at a discount now …..because of a fourth and possibly fifth edition).

It makes it clear, that if you had £100k cash a year ago, with REAL inflation for the last 12 months being 12% that £100k is only worth £88k now. Banks have only started to offer interest rates of more than 2-3%.

However, if you have it invested in some commodity the price of that commodity rises with inflation.

Not saying keep it in NG shares, but what commodity do you sink your capital into to protect your wealth? Property may take a slump with high lending rates. Gold hasn’t been anything to get excited about.

What asset is of low value today that might rocket in the next 12 months that is easily sold to consolidate profit???? When you know, let me know. We should all share ideas, the purpose of these BBs or Threads👍

By Aug 24 when that 5.9% is paid the NG divi may beat it. At today's price and this year's divi the yield is 5.3%.

Dire share price action, I can't envisage a reason for continuing to hold these after next divi payment.

CPIH for May 7.9% up from 7.8% for April.

This is, as many of you know important, as the average CPIH across the year April to March inc determines the dividend.

So even if Sunak does get inflation down to 5% at the end of the year it wouldn’t surprise me to learn, come next April that average CPIH for the previous 12 months will come in at 5.9%. So, I forecast next years divi, interim plus final to come in at 58.71p hopefully, 3.72p more per share than this year.

"for what exactly?"

Contractually they get paid and Free shares for Success or Failure.

UtyINV is right,

Despite the poor performance in NG SP, I too find it hard to understand why the Directors would be paid a Bonus for less than mediocre performance.

Just look at the RNS disclosure today 16th June of Directors exercising their Bonus of free shares, for what exactly?

Dividend wiped out and capital value decimated yet the directors will be helping themselves to big rises for being useless!
