gbh2: This isn't the only share that suffers a significant sell off between ex Dividend dates, it's so easy & cheap these days to move cash around imo it's not surprising.
utyinv: I doubt Newbank is rattled. From my reckoning he is a long term investor who by his comments has diversified effectively. Bear in mind If he is one of the ex-employees who first bought the shares through the original sharesave, he would have effectively paid 37.5p / share. Empowering employees to benefit from the success of a well run company. It might be that he has used funds since 1995 when the shares floated (do not confuse floatation price with offer price to staff), he may have invested in other companies which have increased exponentially. He makes a valid point of diversification. I also believe he is right where you were a heavy investor in kier when they were £6+ / share, highlighting the fact that you cannot assume anything. Not everyone is like yourself, Medieval Blacksmith or Minerve or whatever; passing comments in order to provoke negative reaction. You might be wasting your time if like Newbank says, he has already diversified to compensate. Did you diversify?
utyinv: Inki, Don’t confuse record date with Ex Divi date. Record date is only the date the registrars do their consolidation calculations as to who were holding shares before ex- dividend and those that hold shares post dividend. Sometimes shares fall on record date due to a delay reaction from those that realise there is no immediate reason to hold shares. Markets are very predictable even in volatile times. When Divi’s are paid many stocks go up in price because the masses who reinvest to buy more shares. Supply and demand. That’s why if you want to increase your holding in a particular stock, buy (if you keep a cash fund for further investments), after the days of falls, post ex-divi, then replace that cash with divi’s once the divi is paid. That philosophy works unless you have political manipulation of the fair value of a stock. Why has the BAE share price risen today? Could it be because a nice divi is paid today?
inki: UtyINV - you are of course correct the share price fell - however National Grid (also ADVFN financials tab) shown the record date at 6th June for the dividend, not the 1st. Your thoughts please.
mirandaj: National Grid Shares in the Grid, which owns the wires that deliver our electricity, rather than producing the stuff itself, have also had a good year. They are up 9.8 per cent in the past five months. The company is unlikely to be hit by a windfall tax, as it doesn't benefit directly from energy price rises and, unlike other companies in the sector, has little exposure to commodity price increases. One of the advantages of the Grid is you don't need a crystal ball to forecast profits. Most of its income is regulated in advance and comes with inbuilt inflation protection. This month's full-year figures were suitably fulsome, with pre-tax profit up 16 per cent to £3.1billion, while chief executive John Pettigrew promised the Grid would become the FTSE's biggest investor in the move to a green economy. With claims like this, the company is trying to stave off the criticisms swirling around the energy sector. There's a lot to like about the Grid if you want things slow and steady, but you pay for stability. With shares at £11.64, near their all-time high, Berenberg has downgraded the stock to a hold. But analyst Andrew Fisher says this does not reflect a dislike of the firm's strategy, saying: 'This is a stock we would happily hold on to for the long term.' Jefferies analyst Ahmed Farman maintains a buy rating on the stock. He says that while National Grid's growing wage bill is a concern, it is controlled by a recent union agreement of a 4 per cent annual rise.
lovewinshatelosses: I think it is (justified) nervousness stemming from fear that Red Rishi is going to expand the Windfall Tax to include any and all energy outfits that are profitable, under the entirely false premise of price gouging, or some other nonsense narrative, sooner or later. It will provide some additional gallows humour when his declaration today that this latest helicopter cash burn will not have an impact on inflation. He really is stupid if he believes that, or stupid for saying it openly, if he is lying. Cannot believe this guy made money in the private sector before becoming a politician.
1carus: GBH2, The share price here has not yet caught up with the fairly linear 2012 to 2016 growth rates, which I figure should be about £14 quid. I think it's probably a long term hold still but think from here it's growth will be limited to it's previous growth rate at best. Along with the divi though a fairly safe share I think. I have made good money on these over the years, so a little tempted to sell out and put the money aside for possible opportunities over the summer.
medieval blacksmith: Perhaps you can enlighten this thread as to your current intrinsic valuation of what NG. share price is and whether you see the current price as high. That would be a good start. ;)
elena saratov: UtyINV, You posted 3 times. Are you trying to convince yourself? I have no doubt that there are investors here who see Utility and Dividend but have not researched the Business in detail. We have researched the business in depth and what is apparent is that NG. buy debt riddled businesses and sell some of them on for more than the purchase price. However they are keeping the debts and rolling them up. So the Debt is increasing at the same pace as the share price Whilst there is so much (misplaced in our opinion) confidence the share price is going to fall only very slowly. However once it breaches the 1000p level it will gather momentum. If it does reach an oversold position there may well be another short term trading opportunity to make gains from the subsequent rise. For information, no postings here can affect the share price of a multi billion Utility company but I thought the idea of these forums is to share different views so that we can help each other? Good luck with your own investment decisions.
utyinv: Greenbee, Depends how you hold your shares and where. Some Isa providers ( if you hold your shares in a Stocks and Shares Isa) do not subscribe to scrip dividends. If they do or if you hold your holding in share certificate form, you just need to advise the registrars. However, they aren’t all that its cracked up to be. Instead of taking a dividend NG will announce some weeks before the dividend is paid what price you will be charged in order to purchase the shares, usually the market price of the average share closing price over three consecutive days, sometime before the dividend payment day. So if the price is quoted as say £9.65/ share and your holding has warranted a dividend payment of say £2000, then you would be entitled to 207 shares (instead of receiving a dividend), with the remainder of £2.45 given to a charity of your choice. I said it’s not cracked up to be what some people envisage, ie, many times the option share price is higher than the normal share price on the day the dividend is normally paid. Yes you do save on buying fees if you were going to reinvest the dividend anyway, but sometimes if you let the dividend sit in cash, wait for the price to diminish over a few days after dividend payment day, before you buy. Share Prices usually increase at the time the dividend is paid because those isa holders who instruct the provider to buy shares with the dividend usually do so as a block buy. Once all the monies are consolidated across all its customers who opt to reinvest the dividend, the provider buys at market price. The trading numbers go up for a few days after dividend payment day. I usually decide to buy at a time of my choosing ( when the share price has dropped), or buy other stock that is out of favour and at a good price. One thing becomes very obvious if you do opt for scrip dividend shares, is in the aftermath, you may well realise that you could have bought the shares cheeper, at a time of your choosing. Hope this helps.
