So badly? The real question is why the shareprice of a regulated utility had risen by 20% this year ?

Bank of America should stay over the pond and keep their snouts in their own murky busuness! That aside, I thought that this government would support business and investors. If they want state run utilities and banks, why don't they nationalize them? They run the risk of investors walking away if they treat them so badly - surely Ms Spellman issued what could be deemed price sensitive information without giving it to the market first, so that it was available to all at the same time.

i was in here at 950 out at 1550, too early. but it went to below 1000 at the time of the last regulatory review. goldman had them as a 'conviction sell' at that time. svt are due for review in about 2 years and he same fears will emerge. will the regulator offer them the same return on assets as before? i doubt it. the trick with these regulated utilities is to jump in and out after making the right guess as to the regulators settlement.

Mouth Watering 2,200p Target? INFLATION-BUSTING DIVIDENDS COURTESY OF SEVERN TRENT A recent deal in the water utility sector underlines the value on offer to shareholders and, with inflation-beating dividends still flowing, they remain the defensive share of choice for these turbulent times. Brokers at Liberum Capital estimate that if the 30 per cent premium paid for Veolia Water in a private deal last week was applied to the three remaining water stocks, it would imply prices of 900p for Pennon , 2,200p for Severn Trent and 920p for United Utilities - a significant premium to today's prices. Private buyers' thirst for water assets show little sign of being quenched after Hong Kong-based businessman Li Ka-shing snapped up Northumbrian Water last year and now French utility company Veolia has sold its UK assets to Rift acquisitions, a consortium of infrastructure funds including Morgan Stanley Infrastructure and M&G. The headline price paid was £1.24bn, a 30 per cent premium to the regulatory capital value - the value of reservoirs and pumping stations - of £948m. The wider water utility sub-sector is currently only trading at an 11 per cent premium to regulatory capital value. Buyers would need deep pockets to take out United Utilities, with a market capitalisation of £4.6bn, Severn Trent at £3.9bn, or Pennon at £2.8bn, but sovereign wealth funds could be in the frame, especially now that UK banks seem off the menu as investments. Even if a deal doesn't come along, investors get guaranteed dividend growth targets until 2015 of retail prices inflation (RPI), plus 2 per cent for United Utilities, plus 3 per cent for Severn Trent, and plus 4 per cent for Pennon. Dividend yields are already inflation-busting with United Utilities on 4.7 per cent, Severn Trent at 4.2 per cent (plus a 63p special dividend), and Pennon at 3.5 per cent. Pennon also looks set to join the FTSE 100 after shares in International Power were suspended following its takeover by French utility giant, GDF Suez.. IC VIEW: Shares in the water sector are supported by strong fundamentals, they are tailor-made for the current economic backdrop of low borrowing costs and elevated inflation, and foreign buyers are attracted by solid assets and defensive revenues. That makes the shares cheap relative to recent deals. BUY.

Allowing for the 105p XD, it would seem 1700p would be a more realistic short-term upside target.

Any thoughts on whether this cycling will continue? Looking at the RSI, it seems to be ready for a run back up towards 1800p (RSI 75)? free stock charts from uk.advfn.com

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
