Hope the £13.72 poodee target helps Sanksalot ====================================================== Share buybacks: the other way company managers rob you May 14, 2012 I noted last week that, in the US, big companies have long been the only net buyers of equities. It is also worth pointing out that 25% of S&P 500 companies now do not pay a dividend. They prefer using their cash to buy their own shares. In the early 1990s, some 25% of corporate cash flow was distributed as dividends. That number is now 17%. Today, share buybacks account for 25% of cash flow. But why this new mania for buybacks? The general idea is that company managers figure out when their shares are cheap, and buy them in below their intrinsic value. That creates value for the remaining shareholders: they've effectively bought a cheap asset, and there are fewer of them to share in the proceeds of future growth. There are tax advantages too: most countries tax capital gains less than dividend income – so it makes sense to encourage policies that produce the former. All of this sounds entirely reasonable. And if the story ended there, it would be. But it doesn't. http://www.moneyweek.com/news-and-charts/economics/uk/share-buybacks-company-managers-rob-you-22000

You will see from the spike recently that its a bit expensive just at the moment (defensives are in vogue due to the Euro crisis). If it falls below 1600 it is a buy.

The addition of fluoride to water has been researched for over 50 years, and water fluoridation has been proven to reduce tooth decay by 40-60%.

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.
