Makes you wonder whether to hold on. Neil Woodford certainly saw the signs when he sold his £100 million stake a few months ago.

Severn Trent's profits have halved despite a rise in revenues, as the water firm faced a series of charges. Half-year pre-tax profits at Severn, which serves eight million customers, have fallen from £208.2m to £101.1m. Extra costs for restructuring and infrastructure spending held back profits, and Severn said trading conditions were challenging. But without the charges profits fell 16%, and Severn said it was nearing the end of a major period of change. Severn's revenues rose 1.9% to £867.9m for the six months to the end of September. The company cut its interim dividend by 2.5% to 26.04p, and introduced a new dividend policy for the period between 2011-12 and 2014-15. "The board has decided that the dividend policy for Severn Trent for the period should be RPI plus 3%," the company said in a statement.

Water companies have been given a boost by Citigroup, which pointed to their defensive qualities, attractive dividend yields, the benefit of inflation to their profits and the possibility of mergers and acquisitions in the sector. So Severn Trent has added 32p to £13.65, United Utilities is up 6p to 593p and Pennon has put on 3.5p to 597p. Citi said: We have updated our forecasts for latest guidance and Citi economists' RPI forecasts. We also increase our target prices to reflect forecast sustained high RPI, putting the companies at premiums to regulatory capital value which reflect their relative total returns to equity over the remainder of AMP5 [the five year framework to 2015]. We increase our Severn Trent target price to £14.75, which represents a 5% premium to 2011 RCV and their forecast highest return to equity investors. We increase our United Utilities target price to £6.58 and Pennon to £6.39, representing premiums to RCV of 4% and 3%, respectively.

Now that the haggling with the regulator over price controls is out of the way Royal Bank of Scotland has been poring over the numbers for the water sector and concludes that there is value to be had. RBS analyst Ian Turner said in a note initiating RBS's coverage of the water sector that price control by water regulator Ofwat was 'tougher than was hoped for' but 'efficiency targets have been relaxed between draft and final proposals and investment over the next five years will be £22bn for the whole industry, about 7% higher than the spend in 2005-10.' Predatory activity is not unknown in the sector and with most players trading below or marginally above their regulatory asset base valuations, by RBS's calculations, there is scope for more consolidation. RBS doubts, however, that take-out prices will be at a 30% premium to RAB that have been seen in the past. 'We are initiating coverage of the UK water sector with a Hold rating on Pennon (price target 570p) which trades at small premium to its RAB, on our estimates. We have Buy ratings on Northumbrian (price target 310p), Severn Trent (price target 1,500p) and United Utilities (price target 680p). We estimate that the latter two trade at small discounts to their RABs,' Turner concludes.

Up on the possibility of an Ontario bid for Northumberland. It is thought the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan would have to offer at least 25% above Northumberland's closing price on Friday in order to win shareholder backing for the deal. But the fund is unlikely to offer a larger premium on the company's current value, as its existing stake in the group is likely to deter counter bids from other groups.

The share price did little after the company's trading statement this morning. The water company said the decline in consumption by non-residential customers tailed off in the fourth quarter and now estimates that the cutback in consumption will now result in a year on year fall in revenue of around £5m to £10m in the current financial year, compared to its previous estimate of a £15m to £20m fall.

have these guys massively conned the regulator or are they taking on more debts to pay the dividends?

Severn Trent has announced a 'one-off' cut in the dividend to help it meet the output and operating efficiency demands of the industry regulator. Its first year dividend for start of the AMP5 period will be rebased to 10% below the full year 2009/10 dividend, given the price reductions contained in Ofwat's final set of proposals for 2010-2015. -Given reduction in Ofwat's allowed weighted average cost of capital to 4.5% real, opening adjustment to level of dividend payment for 2010-2015 will be necessary to maintain sustainable level of shareholder return. -Policy for subsequent years is for growth in dividend from new base to deliver both progressive and sustainable returns to shareholders. -This does not affect current Severn Trent dividend policy, which runs until end of AMP4.
