You still give out good advice Wad. A good bounce today for SSE which partly claws back the fall after going ex divi. It will hopefully get back to 1500p plus in short order. A dividend cut could be possible in 2021 but unless there is some regulatory intervention it is safe enough until then.

No, I am a rubbish investor , I lose money hand over fist , the name is ironic. Just do the opposite to anything I suggest.

But ...this is pretty core holding if you want long term growth and good income , but not if you want to double your money this yr! That has to be the best advice I have ever heard from a wad collector. I can see how you got your name, good sir! Just don't collect my wad! Joules this collector guy is bang on the money.

Obviously your portfolio decisions depend on lots of factors inc mix , risk attitudes , investment goals. But ...this is pretty core holding if you want long term growth and good income , but not if you want to double your money this yr!

Really, 751? Maybe, wad, if I'd done more research and less posting I wouldn't've lost money in a bull market! :-/ Thanks for the opinions folks...

I say stick Joules. It has fallen more than the divi. Utilities are back in favour and SSE didn't perform too badly imv as other stocks in the FSTE retreat of this week. Decent yield with good visibility and a lot of fear already in the price.

Just been looking at my Mum's legacy £10k worth of SSE, wondering whether to sell and invest in growth stocks or a different dividend dog on an uptrend. 6.8% is a great dividend, but the chart says to me 'value trap - sell on next spike!' I'm a rank amateur investor. What do you think?

UK 30 year gilt yield down from 1.797% to 1.745% today. Water , gas, utilities and telecoms sectors all look like closing higher as their yields adjust similarly down.

Well yes - the 50kWh i used from my 100kWh i generated saved those 50kWh from being generated elsewhere (assuming i didn't just use them wastefully because they were there and free for me). So no one had to pay 4p x 50 for them, but then again, I didn't have to pay my supplier 16p x 50 for them. And indeed my neighbours will be paying probably 17p/unit for the amount i export. Incidentally, the 100kWh will displace other generation in the following percentages (approx figs from last month) Gas about 40% Nukes ab 20% Wind ab 15% Coal ab 10% Biomass ab 10% Everything else ab 5%

I see what your saying although you could argue that the 50kwh you used you generated yourself saving your suppler from having to pay the coal company 4p and it goes straight to your neighbours who will be paying 17p? ;-)

Strutt, say i getnerate 100kWh. I get paid about £50 for that. (50p/kWh times 100kWh) I use 50kWh in my own home (typically, and deemed) and therefore export the remaininng 50kWh to the local grid. So the the fir payment is £50, and the grid receives 50kWh. So the grid pays £1/kWh for what it gets, to me (and many other panel owners). It pays about 4p/kWh to coal fired/nuclear powerstations, so it pays 25 times as much for solar as conventional generation. (I should imagine it pays much more than the 4p/kWh it pays for coal to other renewable generation like wind, and furthermore, the grid has an obligation to take every drop of energy wind generates at that high subsidy price - and sometimes extra generation is the last thing the grid wants! I'm just explaining why bills have to rise substantially just to cover increasing 'green' costs. I believe many don't know the extremely high costs of the green measures we have implemented, and even those who do know something of the costs underestimate the real cost by a factor of 2 - typically by thinking that the fit rate of 50p/kWh is the input cost, whereas the input cost is actually double the fit rate

Pierre, I still don't see how the supplier is paying over £1? Your supplier will pay you 50p per kwh your system produces and then assume 50% is unused by yourself and therefore returned to the grid which they then pay you 4p per kwh. so the maximum they have to pay is 100% at 50p +50% at 4p so less than 54p per kwh!!

Strutt, yeah the fit rate I get is just over 50p/kWh generated. Most users will probably use 50% of the generation and export 50% to the grid. So the grid pays over a quid for each kWh it gets. That is 25 times the recent wholesale input cost the grid usually transacts, adn that cost is paid for by all consumers as an increase in their bill. (And what is more unfair imv is that it's those people who could get their hands on 10 or 12 grand in cash to buy the panels who get the subsidy, while many who aren't very well off at all pay the subsidy). Yes, sorry i think the average annual fit payment for the biggest systems are nearer your estimate than mine, sorry about that, i was misinformed. I've edited my post.

Pierre, Who do you get over £1 per KWH from for your exported solar panel energy? The rate for early adopters is currently just over 50p per KWH and most 4KW installations return their owners just over £2000 pa. "Solar photovoltaic with total installed capacity of 4kW or less, where attached to or wired to provide electricity to a building which is already occupied" FIT Year 1 2010/11 45.4p per KWH

Helm is on the ball and understands the electricty supply industry. I have little doubt he'll report bills have to keep increasing due to large and growing green imperatives, like subsidies for windmills etc, smart meter installs, the cost of 'switching' frequently on government t advice, the reduction of cheap generation technologies such as coal and nukes, the increasing cost of grid security due to saturation of intermittent sources such as wind etc etc They will have to increase and at a rapid rate imv irrespective of the industry's input fuel costs, and helm will report that. As an example, i get paid via the fit subsidy, over £1 for each unit i export to the local grid (as do many others) from my solar panels, against an input cost recently of about 4p/unit. Many panel owners are getting £3.5k (edit, actually should be nearer £2k) pa in fit subsidies. The difference of 96p/unit is simply loaded onto all consumer bills. There are plenty of other examples.
