Thanks for replying, Arja. I will explore for other possibilities via one of the UK brokers.

hi Boadicea , that is a tricky one and caused by the narrow minded and parochial attitude of Brokers in OZ and in UK. Unfortunately I do not think there is any way out of that dilemna and you might have to use a UK broker with an aussie associate broker to sell the shares meaning a double commission or higher commission anyway. I have still kept my Comsec trading account in OZ even though I have been in Uk for some years and return to OZ next year . So sorry I could not help and good luck with it .

Arja - Apologies for o/t but I am hoping you may have a suggestion for a problem I currently have as it concerns an ASX listed stock I would like to sell. I was left with a Computershare ISHS (Issuer Sponsored Holding Statement) when a company delisted from AIM a couple of years ago. It is now being taken over by a Malaysian outfit and will presumably end up quoted in KL. Hence I want to sell before it goes through. What is the best route to follow as I have no ASX trading arrangements in place? Rather than reply here, if you can be of help, other holders would also be interested in your comments on this (EPY) thread - http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=30013400&from=134

Just saw a picture of young liv aged 38. always a bit nervous about the mistress of the universe cult. enron, 2007, nick leeson , the whale..the list is long. they never know what they do not know. lets us hope that this young high flyer and sewage mix well. it is hard to believe that a dull utility like svt can be scewed up. it must run itself.

did nothing for the share price Miata but SVT is still a very good trading stock, especially intra-day with Cfds of course to avoid SD .

but the historic pe is high right now, about 20. results shortly. agreed about the need for job creating infrastructure spending, but if the regulator just shaves off of 1% on the allowed return on assets would leave the divi uncovered. large profits and price increases would be politically unacceptable..

Politicians can spout hot air, and damage the share price to boot. However, the regulator understands that all utilities need to borrow to improve infrastructure. If they get the numbers wrong, then service levels are bound to drop. Were I managing the company, I would make it plain to all and sundry the extent of any "issues" arising from over regulaion and price squeezes. It could be done very easily with percentages. It would help a lot if the media got off their high horse, and qouted facts instead of soundbites.

What will Milliband promise in his election manifesto with regards to all utilities. Even john Major called for a windfall tax recently. These companies will never be renationalised. no need. just endless raids on their coffers. The utilities are becoming political hot potatoes, punishing them will be popular. The public do not understand the billions borrowed and invested on infrastructure will require a modest return. SVT is loaded with debt. nett assets are negligable. p.s.i have offloaded SVT because of these factors. it has had a great run.

The key here is the return on assets allowed by the regulator. the review is about 18months away, just at the time of the election. last time the uncertainty drove the share price down to below £10.

MIATA Interesting post. I would suspect that this could lead to inceased efficiency and perhaps cost reductions, where improved plant and equipment costs less to run in terms of energy and maintenance. red

Following a recent decision by Ofwat to allow the companies to shift work between asset management periods (AMPs) where it helps smooth the workflow for contractors hundreds of millions of pounds of work is expected to be brought forward from AMP6.

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.
