Questor Returns from utility shares are governed by the regulator. In the water sector that regulator is Ofwat. The regulator agrees the prices water companies can charge, what price increases are allowed, what level of investment is required into pipes and reservoirs and the return the companies are allowed to make. These are agreed and then set for a five-year period. That is important. Utility stocks tend to peak at the midpoint in the regulatory period. It's therefore worth noting that we are now past that point in the water sector as the current AMP5 five-year regulatory planning period runs from 2010 to 2015. Historically, water shares have tended to struggle after the midpoint in the regulatory period and 2013 looks likely to be no different.

I see that miata and I used to play call and put options in OZ but it was really a mug's game as spreads not great, run by MMs ( my pet hate) and usually illiquid except in a few stocks . If you have a large deposit with CFD provider here I suppose you

Vastly more leverage at less cost on near to expiry options.

miata- tricks of the trade I guess . Less need for options nowadays I suppose because of other margin products such as spreadbets and CFDs .

United Utilities and Severn Trent bubble up on bid talk, but FTSE falters ahead of Fed decision Severn Trent was also in demand, up 34p to £17.92. Traders said the business could be attractive to a predator for its strong cash flow and defensive qualities but they also pointed out that Canadian-led consortium LongRiver recently gave up on a bid after a board rejection. And the regulatory regime surrounding the UK water companies remains unclear.

Options expiry this Friday, (means options are very cheap as there is little time value left) always the time to float rumours to make the most money. Should be cheaper next week!

BE Though, in traditional bull market style, we had a nutso morning bid rumour. Severn Trent PLC (SVT:LSE): Last: 1,810, up 52 (+2.96%), High: 1,834, Low: 1,752, Volume: 435.29k BE Still up 3.3%. BE No one seems to have heard a specific tale, though there's lots of generalised noise around. PM A nutso morning bid rumour BE What we can say is that Longriver backed off on Jun 11, so remain very much locked out under Takeover Panel rules. Plus a bit of movement out of the rest of the market into defensives (also tobacco) ahead of the FOMC. Plus Yellen shoe-in probably means lower interest rates for longer, therefore move to lock in to high yielders.

JP Morgan Ofwat has issued a statement this morning regarding Thames Water's application for an interim determination of k (IDoK). The main point of interest is that Ofwat is considering using the substantial effect mechanism to claw back the benefits that Thames Water has received from economic circumstances beyond its control (i.e. high inflation and low interest rates). We believe that this is the first time Ofwat has suggested using this power and it could create an unfortunate precedent for investors in the sector. Following Ofwat's presentation earlier this week when it focused on the industry lowering bills for customers, with an 'indicative' WACC of 4.1%, we believe that investor sentiment towards the quoted water companies may suffer short term. Read-across to the listed companies. Ofwat has made it clear that it is only looking at clawing back economic benefits from Thames and not the other water companies. However, there is a risk that this could set an unfortunate precedent and hence change the perceived risk/ reward for investors in the sector. In conjunction with Ofwat's presentation earlier this week focusing on the potential for customers' bills to fall in the next review period and using an indicative WACC of 4.1% (vanilla, real) we would expect investors to reassess the risk reward for the sector ahead of the regulatory review. We continue to prefer PNN of the listed water companies, as it has less exposure to the regulatory review given the growth in its waste business, Viridor.

Full year dividend for 2013/14 set to be 80.40p, which gives a forward yield of 4.7%. It is however this high yield that makes them similar to a bond with the comcomitant risk that their capital value will fall as bond yields rise.

Haven't SVT agreed to a yield of 6.2%? That beats bond risk by a mile.

Wednesday's FOMC minutes are likely to confirm QE tapering and thus rising US and UK bond yields - a negative for utility share prices.

Severn Trent has revealed that it ran up a £19m bill – almost 9% of this year's pre-tax profits – fending off the takeover approach. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/nils-pratley-on-finance/2013/jul/17/severn-trent-advisers-40k-a-day SVT has urged people to restrict their use of hosepipes and sprinklers during the night, it said some of its customers had been affected by low pressure due to the increase in demand.
