mark1000: Pierre if and its a big IF NG have to cut Divi's we would see the share price fall how big a fall we can speculate but to assume it falls by say 10% or more it would take us into the 7.00 to 7.50 range it will hurt sentiment greatly. I think you will agree that as a utility the dividend is the most important stick to measure this Company by and why we all hold the share. Good point Newbank I do agree they can pay the dividend even if they appeal but they may still have to throw a questionmark over future dividends if their appeal is not successfull they can hardly say we will continue to payout and grow dividends regardless of the result of the appeal. The market hates uncertainty and thats why the share has under performed against the market.
cocopah: I agree that the share price is bearing all the weight of RIIO-2. Has anyone done the numbers on the impact this will have on National Grid if the appeal is rejected? I’m thinking a 50% reduction in dividend and a share price in the 7.00 to 8.00 range?
mark1000: Boystown a lot of risk on this share at the moment as I see it the crucial decision do they appeal or not the Ofgem 5 year price deal. If they do they can hardly keep pressing on with the current divi they have to at least pending the decision hold back part of the divi. This shares all about the divi so reduce the divi by 20% expect the share price to fall by 20%. My hope is they accept the Ofgem deal and reconfirm that they will continue the current dividend policy. I think taking away these uncertainties would take us back over 9.00 if they appeal we could see 7.00 IMHO.
boystown: To me, this feels a bit like the same time of year in 2000. All the tech stuff that could never possibly justify their share prices via earnings / yield, in a hundred years were rocketing, whilst big, profitable blue-chips / industrials etc., were at low points. It proved to be exactly the right time to switch. It's slightly different, as a lot of high yield / solid stuff has done well of late, but NG has been slammed - and far too far IMO, whilst techs and crypto etc.... well! Similarly, there's been a lot of irrational small cap exuberance.
mark1000: Newbank do you know latest date in March I assume an RNS on that date to confirm if or if not they are going to appeal. The higher exchange with USD is depressing the conversion into GBP profits does anyone know if NG hedges the USD/ Sterling exchange rate? The share price seems hugely depressed against a rampant bull market.
mark1000: Bond rates may be part of the reason but I give more weight to the following. The exchange rate with the dollar has reduced GBP Group profits by say 5% as the £ has strengthend by say 10%. The recent OFGEM settlement with a question mark over an appeal leaves the all important question will the divi be maintained will it continue to grow as often said the market hates uncertainty. This share is supposed to be safe and boring the last eighteen months has shown this not to be so. You had a Labour Party wanting to renationalise without fair compensation. Ofgem is in a war with NG to drive the hardest possible bargain to get a settlement. Now headlines about spliting part of NG. Folks accept lower returns on Utilities because of boring predictability take that away folks want higher returns this translates to a lower share price
newbank: Uty, I too have had similar discussions with John Pettigrew. It's so very clear what the Money Men are trying to do. They are well aware of panic they will send to the Private Investor in order to get your shares cheap. They were spreading the same doom and gloom, as you refer, when NG was forced to ring-fence and then separate out Pumped Storage Generation (which National Grid used to own), because National Grid did not have a Generation License in the UK. Look at the share price then and compare it to today. Too many people are trying to manipulate the share price by publishing old news.
bountyhunter: Share price forecast The 16 analysts offering 12 month price targets for National Grid plc have a median target of 1,015.00, with a high estimate of 1,130.00 and a low estimate of 928.00. The median estimate represents a 15.03% increase from the last price of 882.40. Recommendations 31-Dec-20 Buy 6 Outperform 9 Hold 3 Underperform 0 Sell 0 Pretty good! I'm expecting an imminent rally, nai :-) Https://,the%20last%20price%20of%20868.80.
beckers2008: Long term holder here and disappointed with share price action over the last few years, but the divi is good! I haven't managed to get to any of the AGM's as out of the country for most of the year, has anyone on this BB attended and if so does JP realise the strength of feeling regarding OFGEM and the desire to sell the affected UK business? If NG. did 'get out of OFGEM's clutches then the share price would move significantly higher imo.
beckers2008: Yet another OFGEM decision will stress why NG. should only carry out regulated work for them and reduce exposure and the high risk for little reward that goes with working for OFGEM. The US success story will continue and with it, NG. who will continue to invest more for a fair ROI compared to the pitiful ROI in the UK. Strange at one point on Friday that the share price was down circa 4% on news that OFGEM will be penalising NG. £60 million, 20 million less then the market first thought. The market repaid NG. by taking circa £1.2 billion off the share price, strange times indeed!
