Severn Trent slips after update shows little signs of improvement at services businessCompany says trading is in line with expectations but adds that consumption levels would fall Utility companies are supposed to be a haven for investors in troubled times, but a trading update from Severn Trent has seen its shares slip lower. The company said trading in the last five months had been in line with expectations but warned that consumption levels for the full year were expected to show a decline. Although this is not exactly a surprise, it was enough to push its shares 13p lower to £15.27. Despite record low rainfall over the winter, the company is not predicting any restrictions on water usage this year although it continues to review the situation. Its services business - which provides water and waste treatment in European and North America - has been suffering in the current tough economic climate, and Severn Trent said it did not expect any significant upturn before the start of the next financial year. But the second half performance was expected to show an improvement on the first six months. Angelos Anastasiou at Investec Securities said: Today's interim management statement does not seem to contain any surprises, with management confirming that "trading across the group has been in line with its expectations". One slight positive is that there has been no further deterioration at Severn Trent Services)- but there has been no improvement either. Hence, we have reduced our target price to 1718p (from 1751p) to reflect the continuing weakness. While Severn Trent is not expensive, United Utilities remains the cheaper of the two large water stocks. Even cheaper at the moment. United is 5.5p lower at 600.5p following the Severn Trent update, while smaller rival Pennon is down 4p at 694.5p.

I've thought for some time that these were seriously overvalued compared to their peers - so sold out a while back.

Merrill: NWG has announced today that CKI has made a revised non-binding cash offer at 465p per share, 9% above Friday's close price. A 465p offer represents a 28% EV premia to 2012 RAV, we estimate, above the average 25% takeout multiple in previous UK water deals from back in 2006-07. NWG has agreed for CKI to now undertake due diligence. Existing shareholders will also be entitled to the 9.57p final dividend to be paid in September. Positive for UK water peers: This is a significantly positive development for the other UK water stocks. Severn Trent being the cheapest UK water utility, remains our favourite UK water name but clearly Pennon and United Utilities are also likely to benefit from the above average takeout multiple implied by the CKI offer. Current trading multiples of water peers: In terms of 2012 EV/RAV premia, Severn Trent is trading at 5.5%, UU at 6.3% and Pennon at 11.4% premia. 15% EV/RAV Scenario: As highlighted in our scenario analysis earlier, even applying a conservative 15% EV/RAV premia would suggests upside of 18% for SVT and UU. Pennon is already trading at 11% premia, so a 15% scenario would imply 4% upside and a 10% premia would imply 9% upside from current levels. We remain Buyers of SVT and UU and maintain our Neutral on Pennon, although Pennon is also clearly likely to benefit from this newsflow.

If a bid emerges for Northumbrian, then it will underpin valuations in the wider water sector. UU SVT & PNN are all trading at c.2% premia to their 2012 RABs, showing the scope for further upside. On our estimates since 2004 the transaction multiples for UK regulated utilities has ranged from a 20% premium to RAV in July 2010 to a 48% premium in November 2007, with an average of 29%.
