Utilities stocks reacted to Tuesday's Ofwat statement in which it clarified some licence modification proposals following requests for more information from shareholders. The general consensus is that water suppliers do not agree with the proposals from the regulator, which said that it wanted to set segmental price controls. United Utilities and Severn Trent both released statements today, calling for "modifications" to the current proposals. "In response to Ofwat's clarification note published earlier this week, the company has made constructive suggestions to overcome concerns regarding the prospect of losing 40 per cent of revenue from wholesale price controls and lack of clarity about how future prices would be controlled." Interim results next week.

More of the same old joined up thinking by government, regulators etc etc then. Do they not communicate with each other at all before issuing policy statements or inferences?

Ofwat clarified proposed changes to water companies' licences. "The softening of Ofwat's stance on a Competition Commission referral reduces the near-term risk of negative newsflow," said analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co.

MIATA Here what you say. The banks are slowly putting their house in order. I suspect however that they will be drip feeding more provisions for current bad debts into their balance sheets for years to come. But, one cannot deny that they are making progress and at the same time having regulations thrown at them. Margins cannot be as good as a few years ago with interest rates so low, but they have been able to borrow large sums from the BofE at next to nothing. They must make a good turn on that, whilst limiting the amounts that they are lending. I believe that many savers have committed more funds than they would normally do to high yield equities and fixed income investments to chase better rates. Should they be penalised for doing so? It is a double whammy. We all know that the government is expecting savers to bale them out with inflation greater than current interest returns, but to cynically wipe out capital on top by throw away statements in parliament, given by people incapable of running a school tuck shop, is taking the biscuit. red

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.
