Let's see who can do it cheapest, never about who can do it better. A regulated industry should be able to ensure that main suppliers deliver a cost effective solution to the country's energy needs, not just creating a multitude of here today gone tomorrow outfits with absolutely no interest in future needs. So much for our Conservative government supporting business. Might as well have Corbyn in and start again under nationalisation. At least like it or not, we'd know who's side they're on.

As a regulated business with six main suppliers, how difficult is it to ensure these are run properly and prices controlled without creating dozens of Mickey Mouse operators with just call centres and no responsibility for generation and infrastructure? They said there was no competition originally before privatisation when we had the CEGB. Now we have six and they're still moaning. How many is enough for competition before it gets silly?

That just about sums it up. Everyone needs Electricity/Gas so it takes a lot to completely mess things up! The one positive here may be that things may well improve for the remaining business after the demerger of NewCo.

Markets are never stable SSE put prices up 15% in April 2017, then spent £500 million buying back shares, added £1 billion debt on the balance sheet to pay generous dividends and then watched as 430000 customers left over 12 months. Management needs sacking for unstable dangerous financial engineering hTtps://www.theguardian.com/money/2017/mar/18/sse-latest-big-six-energy-firm-put-prices-up-electricity-rise hTtps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-44251767

Telegraph has a switching service. Vested interest, article biased. They are out to destroy these utilities, many for personal gain. Share prices of utilities have all collapsed without exception. In normal times they would offer great value. The yields are enormous if they are allowed to be maintained. It would take a brave contrarian to start buying the lot of them. Sometimes such moves pay off.

www.ft.com/content/14344e72-b84a-11e8-bbc3-ccd7de085ffe FT reporters SEPTEMBER 15, 2018 SSE slipped to an eight-year low in the wake of Wednesday’s profit warning, which the power utility blamed on hot, calm weather and gas trading losses. “The company will need to earn the trust of the market before any re-rating is forthcoming,” said Macquarie, which saw nothing changing until the planned demerger next year of SSE’s residential retail division. “Past experience of defensive stocks that surprise is that they will be in the penalty box until confidence in management is regained,” it said.

I would say an RSI of 14 is now oversold (!) Even last year in H1 SSE only made 31.2p EPS H2 was around 90p Half H1 = 15.6p If H2 can remain around 90p then full year EPS should still come in around 105p giving a current P/E of 10. Dividend yield 9% npower deal? Benefits remain to be seen.

1400p to sub 1100p within three month. So much for defensive quality

Was the level of dividend paid out for years detrimental to the longer term interests of the business?. Some of the income funds appeared to have dumped holdings over the past few years.

Generation co should trade at a decent rating given its regulated/RO type income so if it gets an infrastructure fund type rating - which it should - then it’s prbably worth north of £13. Then retail co could be worth £0 and it’s worth quite a bit more than today. So in my book and absent labour, it’s a no brainer at this level which is why I’ve loaded up!

Alot depends on what MERGO(SSE Retail and Npower retail) will offer after the split. We know the old SSE will offer 80p index linked for 3 years. No one knows what MERGO will be valued at or its dividend.

careful - someone mentioned a few days ago that there is a feeling of 'get all the bad news out in one go now'. Then when the details of the merger with nPower and the creation of NewCo. are being finalised there should be no skeletons in the cupboard. That's just specultion on my part, I sold half my holding a while ago and now have to decide if to continue holding. A divi cut looks to be on the cards but yield still good. Putting cash into an 'instant access' saving account is rubbish have given up looking for a decent return on cash.

bought a few more. looks grim, but hoping this can be turned around. Sometimes a shock like the recent results is a wake up call. For a while the company may become motivated to run things better and apply financial discipline.

npower's retail business in the UK has more often than not been loss making. Post-merger the dividend will be cut/re-based to 80p actually. https://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2018/06/20/is-sse-plc-a-high-yield-dividend-star-or-a-dangerous-dog-of-the-ftse-100/ There will be one more dividend rise for the year to March 2019 to 97.5p per share and then the directors will trim the payout to 80p for the year after that, which they say “provides a sustainable basis for future dividend growth.”

Just concentrating on hydro and wind in Scotland is poor management. SSE are also based in southern England, where they could have built up a portfolio of Solar Farms if they had any sense. These would do well in the sunnier summers when the wind underperforms.
