1carus: If Labour were to win an election, which is looking unlikely, and if the share price today equates close to the value of the activities in the US, it seems like a fair hold still to me. I have rather a lot of these and it's not been fun holding them for the last 2 years tbh, I am now about even on my original share price, so at least I can now look at my divi payments as profit for now. Is there any confidence that the biz would protect shareholder value if it looked likely that Labour would win an election?

newbank: Bounty, I also note that the correlation between Gilts and NG / SSE appear to be widening. Gilts are going up whilst NG/SSE are falling. A direct result of Labour's rhetoric regarding its plans for Nationalisation. Its time Pettigrew:- 1) Listed the US business separately. 2) Commission a legal examination test on the legality of Corbyn's Marxist's intentions to Nationalise the utilities without full Compensation. 2a) To base the value on the current Assets value as it is now £ 40.5 billion may be regarded as fair, rather than the share price being destroyed after Corbyn's rhetoric. 40.5Billion / 3.4 billion shares = £11.91 / share. Debt is the price Labour would have to pay, as it was OFGEM and government policy reiterating that Utilities should accept higher gearing to keep Customer prices low. 3) Start showing where NG's decision to abandon UK highly regulated, low income businesses (like NG Gas Distn businesses which were sold), in preference to invest and concentrate on lower draconian regulatory constraints, lucrative high growth, high revenue businesses. He has had two years since the sale of the Gas Distn businesses, it's now time to see the fruits of that decision. Ie Its time Pettigrew started earning his corn!

utyinv: So yesterday the news was leaked, depressing the share price when it should have been rising into results. Why can’t politicians be prosecuted for manipulating share prices just like anyone in the corporate world? What is stopping the politicians helping the shorters or family members by manipulating the markets with contentious statements?

newbank: m100, As I said Corbyn will get something published just to thwart any potential rise in the share price leading up to results. Just look at the graph in the US. He, Corbyn that is, is manipulating the share price in order to prepare for his onslaught on Grid if the opportunity arises. I only wish Pettigrew would do something to put the nasty little man back in his marxist hole.

utyinv: Bounty, Utilities are being stitched up both ways! The regulator expects Utilities to run with high debt. Stating that the businesses are secure with little risk. If you recall in 2006 the regulator called on NG to raise money via its shareholders and debt in order to fund much needed capital projects. Their argument was rather than the customers pay for it ( as directed in the Privatisation agreement), ultimately the shareholder will benefit from a higher share price because of a greater Asset base. But this so called secure, no risk investment stance by the Regulator is a load of bull. With Labour waiting in the wings and their constant iterations on Nationalisation is depressing the share price as well as damaging pension funds. If Labour did take over a Utility, after debt, shareholders would receive worthless paper. That is why McDonnell refuses to state how much Nationalisation would cost. He is hoping the shares crash to next to nothing, pay debt and the shareholder shafted!

utyinv: This share price is being manipulated. Should be £12/ share. But I imagine Pettigrew likes it low as they get more shares in their bonus. It’s a bit fishy that on 28th March the BBC published a news bulletin regarding a paper that Labour was putting out to explain how they would take control of NG. That bulletin was pulled because of an excuse that Labour weren’t quite ready to publish??? A slight delay. Or was it a strategic move to keep the share price low? Why hasn’t there been more news to elaborate and clarify their thinking / intentions. Could it be the Shadow Chancellor saying “we cannot allow utility share prices to rise because it would make it harder to take control”. They are so bitter that the Privatisation of the Utilities have been a success and that many many workers are now shareholders in the Companies. They don’t like the ordinary man in the street embracing the benefits of capitalism and working in harmony with the Company bosses. Marxism never works but it sure does destroy Economies before the plonkers who vote for them realise that the promises made were just lies to get them ( Labour) elected.

newbank: Must admit, I am not impressed with how quiet Pettigrew and the Company have been. The Company said last Dec when Ofgem hit NG with draconian prospects for RIIO 2 and NG at the time said they were disappointed but would respond in full in the New Year. In Full? They have capitulated to OFGEM's demands. Leak in the BBC news last Thursday that Corbyn was preparing to talk about a Paper they have produced outlining plans to take NG into public ownership. No one at the Company was available for comment. What defensive plays have Pettigrew and his team undertaken with all these negative vibes hitting the media? One of the reasons why Andrew Bonfield left NG to work for Caterpillar was not only the remuneration being offered or the fact that he wanted to spend more time in the US, I have it on good authority one of the main reasons was Pettigrew's insistence on not diversifying enough to protect Investor capital. Pettigrew and his Board have received increased pay awards and bonuses, yet since he stepped in to Steve Holliday's shoes nearly three years ago, the share price has fallen from £11.64 to today £8.4. Three years of growth yet the share price falls approx 30%. If you take inflation into the calculation the real effect is far worse. So why is Pettigrew and his Board rolling over to any threat to the business? Having been an investor in many Companies over the years, there is a concerning theory as to why there are so few RNS's or presentations to investors on the prospect for NG share price growth, it's because Pettigrew hasn't got a clue and is sticking his head into the sand and capitulating. Maybe he fancies being in charge of running a Nationalised Energy Company with his current Final salary pension already protected and the prospect for a Government backed pension for anyone running a state owned Company, in reality he will be coining it in. Dean Seavers (NG US Chief), was quite open at one of the last AGM's to a friend of mine who asked him why doesn't NG invest far more in the US, where business is treated more favourably than the UK (UK draconian Regulation and a Marxist shadow Gov wanting to take control of our economy), and his reply was 'Absolutely right' but the Board are looking at opportunities. A polite way to say the 'Board' can't see the car crash that NG are heading for, what with OFGEM wanting NG investors to invest for very little in return and the Marxists waiting in the wings to confiscate assets and wealth. Two presentations a year a 'Final' and an 'Interim' and a couple of courses to tell Investors how great National Grid is growing. No mention of the disastrous share price, no mention of the fact that Pettigrew still got his £5million pay packet and bonuses for achieving his performance targets. WHAT PERFORMANCE TARGETS? Surely the main Performance target for a CEO is the share price which reflects an independent view on Business confidence and prospect. I honestly think that Pettigrew has turned his back on Investors and no longer figure in his priorities. AIMO

coxsmn: ng share price has fallen due to the general low sentiment in the utilities sector at the moment. However, if we look at the fundamentals, ng is on a p/e of a mere 7.56. If we were to value the business on an unambitious p/e of 10 then the share price would be £10.11. So no, £9.50 share price is still very reasonable. When sentiment changes then the share price could rise rapidly, for the moment its a great buying opportunity with excellent dividend.

jonwig: @ Newbank - ironically, the agency which could thwart Labour's plans is the ECJ. All their favoured ways of 'leaving' the EU appear to mean keeping keeping the jurisdiction of the court. Given the intertwined relationships and arguments about fair compensation it's unlikely they could achieve anything on this front anytime soon! Unfortunately the NG. share price wouldn't be likely to make much headway in the meantime!

utyinv: As the share price rises the attractiveness of the Special Dividend and the corresponding share consolidation is less appealing. However, it depends on whether the strategy adopted by the NG ‘Board’ works in the long run where I would hope we would start to see some growth in the share price. Because let’s be honest for a progressive Company the share price has been rather disappointing where having languished in the £10 are for years it should be showing signs of upward momentum, hence analysts suggesting it should have reached £13 / share as far back as 2015. Anyway, whether you decide that the Special Dividend and share consolidation is for you or not is a person decision based on how confident you believe the move will bring future benefits to shareholders. In earlier posts, someone quoted a share holding of 20,000 so let’s use that as an example. Now If, a big If, the share price remains the same after the share consolidation (with the special Divi being cancelled out by the consolidation), the Private Investor will in the short term be worse off ignoring the tax liability that may result. Example, 20,000 shares at current price of £10.43 gives a value of £208,600 ignoring dealing selling costs and spread costs. 20,000 shares Special Divi of 84.375p = £16,875 Share consolidation: (20,000 /12) x 11 = 18,333 new shares. New total value if new shares have the same price as old shares:- 18,333 shares at £10.43 = £191,213 + £16,875 = £208,088. But if you wanted to buy the new shares back using your special dividend; if the price remains £10.43 post consolidation then with dealing tax on buying back you will effectively lose an additional £84 in dealing tax (£16,875 X 0.5%). In addition to normal dealings costs and spread costs. As for capital gains tax; as mentioned earlier in my post to Pierre, it begs the question about the 30 day rule whether buying the new shares is regarded as the same as the old shares. The new shares are not the same as the old shares and there is a clause excluding share consolidations, new share issues etc. It is all in the interpretation and to be certain you would have to consult a specialist who may end up charging you. Let’s hope the strategy works for shareholders in the long run, hopefully seeing future growth in share price. IMO!
