utyinv: Yanks spoiling the restoration in share price
utyinv: For those are thinking about buying: In normal times the share does recover a little a week or so after ex-dividend date. But then it normally falls again and new lows can be found around Sept/Oct before it rises in early Nov for the interims. I say normally, but this year is not normal, ie, expecting a decision by the CMA regarding RIIO II ROE and we have the run up to Copt26. Both events might propel the share price to a realistic value indicated in the Simply Wall St article I posted earlier.
utyinv: A little out of date but still very relevant. Taken from Simply Wall St. In this article we are going to estimate the intrinsic value of National Grid plc (LON:NG.) by projecting its future cash flows and then discounting them to today's value. We will take advantage of the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model for this purpose. There's really not all that much to it, even though it might appear quite complex. Companies can be valued in a lot of ways, so we would point out that a DCF is not perfect for every situation. If you still have some burning questions about this type of valuation, take a look at the Simply Wall St analysis model. Check out our latest analysis for National Grid The calculation As National Grid operates in the integrated utilities sector, we need to calculate the intrinsic value slightly differently. Instead of using free cash flows, which are hard to estimate and often not reported by analysts in this industry, dividends per share (DPS) payments are used. Unless a company pays out the majority of its FCF as a dividend, this method will typically underestimate the value of the stock. The 'Gordon Growth Model' is used, which simply assumes that dividend payments will continue to increase at a sustainable growth rate forever. For a number of reasons a very conservative growth rate is used that cannot exceed that of a company's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In this case we used the 5-year average of the 10-year government bond yield (1.0%). The expected dividend per share is then discounted to today's value at a cost of equity of 5.8%. Compared to the current share price of UK£9.0, the company appears about fair value at a 16% discount to where the stock price trades currently. The assumptions in any calculation have a big impact on the valuation, so it is better to view this as a rough estimate, not precise down to the last cent. Value Per Share = Expected Dividend Per Share / (Discount Rate - Perpetual Growth Rate) = UK£0.5 / (5.8% – 1.0%) = UK£10.8
utyinv: Hi guys, Talk about fall back, its usual for the price to drop divi+ 10-20% of divi, ie, if divi 32.16p don’t be surprised for the price to fall 36p. I expect the share price to fall from £9.60 to £9.24 short term, before recovering. Any pull back less than 36p is a bonus.
newbank: Hedge Fund parasites trying to get these on the cheap. Force the share price low, buy back just before ex-divi, collect the divi and dump. That's why in my view I would make short selling illegal. There should be a two week window before you could buy back the shares you sold. That would allow legitimate trading but deter shyster hedge fund sharks that think about 'now' and not tomorrow.
prokartace: Lobo, are you a seasoned investor? So that you know you only need to hold the shares for 1 day to get the dividend. You would buy the shares the day before the ex date and sell on the ex date. However the share price typically discounts the amount of the dividend on the ex date so you would not make money this way. If you want to be an income investor you should be a long-term investor. It is better to buy the share on price weakness and then hold for the long-term rather than worrying about how long the shaes would need to be held to receive the dividend. I bought the shares on recent weakness and am already making 8.5% profit which is more than the dividend yield. Long story short, if your purchase timing is wrong you could get the divi quick but end up losing money overall
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: 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.
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.
