Yanks at it again. It was expected as posted earlier that the number of ADR Shorts over the pond were at a record high and now Hedge Fund Parasites selling them hoping to make a killing at investors expense.

They need shareholder authority to issue new shares, those in treasury are an easier option to hand out.

Buybacks are good enough for Warren Buffett / Berkshire Hathaway (dividend - 0%). Take a look at the share price of that company.

Looking at the other high performers in my portfolio (ASML, Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, TSMC) they all have high buybacks and low dividends.

If you cancelled that they would just issue new ones. Always a way for the big guys to get paid

Yes I've always considered buybacks kept in treasury - and later handed out to directors - as a bit of a con. I like to see them cancelled.

viscount,

I have been investing for over 40 years and in 99.9% of cases buybacks do absolutely nothing for the Investor that require income and growth from their nest eggs. The shares stay low. Just one example of this is within the banking sector. The share prices of all our banks are still at firesale value.

Buybacks only help the 'Board' which artificially boosts the PE triggering a bonus. In addition, the ‘Board’ are employees who get paid a great deal of money to do their job. Many of the shares bought back in buybacks are not cancelled but banked to provide unjustifiable bonus giveaways to the Directors who do an average job.

The logic in how Buybacks are executed baffles many. Ideally, buyback should occur when the share is at a low price but invariably we see the Companies buying back at high prices.

Just remember Investors include many pensioners and professionals who have invested life savings in order to get extra income to supplement their pensions or salaries.

Should keep the dividend but pay it 4 times a year and ignore any calls for share buybacks.

Cheers Tufty, yes timing of sales especially is tricky but you were spot on around the divi! I wish I had a few more of these and less O&G.

Hey bh,

Yeah my Friday call turned out wrong and over the weekend I did set a buy order for a bit of a profit / stamp covered to get back in but it didn't get hit unfortunately for me.

Good luck to those who are holding and I will see what the New Year brings 👍🏻

The more electricity is generated, the more of it there is to distribute, and conversely too, so our performance capacity is directly linked to power generation and the transit fees from it..

Okay, so how does generation affect NG. revenues, profits, divis etc? As I understand it, the proportion of an elec. bill that is due to transmission cost is not affected by the proportion due to the unit cost of elec. on that bill.

anhar,

When there is any news about Elect Generation the media puts up photos of NG Transmission lines. There is much confusion and consequently illogical general sentiment that tends to affect our share price. However, when the spotlight is placed on Elect Generation it usually shines on NG too where many like to take a swipe at the Company not because of knowledge but because of ignorance or Shyster Hedge Funds trying on any account to depress the share price to make a short term killing.

You also have to acknowledge, that NG revenues are inextricably linked to Elect Generation too, .

NG. far as I'm aware does not generate electicity so I don't see why the price or source of uranium for nuclear plants is of much interest to NG. shareholders.
