I thought nationalisation was now a dead duck? Not sure where it leaves Ng. Where a small part was to be brought under direct gov control.The Divi in my view is all politics, not financial. SSE is hoping to keep under the regulator's (and the green public's) radar by not paying out a high Divi rate. That simply leaves a little more to be invested in more windmills rather than the other way around. Sse is unusual that it's big business with shareholders (greens don't like that), yet it's a big windmill company (greens love that), so the Divi cut is a balance.The short/medium term of the windmill business was secured very favourably last week (for SSE, not taxpayers) by the increase in gteed prices.So a couple more years of profitable investment in SSE then. Further out, watch out for reality hitting and these green companies hit hard times as subsidies get cut.Reassess carefully every 6 months Imv, but for now it's a stonking buy (thank you taxpayers).

The figures aren't bad but that big 38% divi slash for the full year still hurts me as an income investor, having held SSE for many years. I know the "rebase", ie. cut, was flagged well in advance but it still stings as the actual accounts are revealed.

SSE is one of the clutch of utis in my diversified income port but with a forecast yield of about 3.4% on a 60p divi at 1,745p it's one of the lower yielders.

Before anyone asks why don't I sell, my strat is to hold income shares very long term and rarely sell unless I think they have gone seriously wrong which SSE has not, despite the divi cut. It's the income stream with which I am primarily concerned, not share prices. Inevitably, some shares sometimes cut divis over the long term and that's why I have a port diversified across many industries, to ameliorate that risk.

As a former lifelong customer of Southern Electric / SSE and briefly while rebranded Ovo I am well aware that this is no longer a retail energy supplier. Nor have I said that, not recently and not since your last post in February 2022. But seriously thanks for popping in.

You have misread or misunderstood something. Its been about reconsidering the fortunes and outlook for SSE as it has shifted away and is further shifting from its old business model to being an adventurous asset developer. After a good start realising gains by selling stakes in some developments things are looking tougher and its not just the cost of capital. It may succeed with its new strategy, but the compensation we get for the greater risk by way of dividend is nothing like it used to be when SSE was a steady boring regulated operator and retailer banking the cash.

Rationalising my July decision to bail out in the £18s as things unfold, and watching closely to see how far back it might fall, might re-entry be attractive at some stage. Today was rotten, lots of good stocks bashed hard, but I do wonder if SSE is heading down further.

You may be right but my conclusion is that the outlook for SSE is getting more difficult having enjoyed a good run. The increasing risks are not priced in if, as you say, the recent fall back from £19 is just down to the macro economic cycle of higher gilt rates. It does not help SSE share price cutting yield by a third, something which compensated for the risk.

A few months delay in completing the Seagreen wind farm off Angus. SSE will be facing the same delay and cost problems everyone else is declaring, surely? In the long run SSE will no doubt end up a winner but the process of creating value from developments suddenly looks tough.

We will see, the results of AR5 are due to be announced at the latest by the end of this week and will tell a story about who is still aggressively pursuing offshore wind opportunities.

The share price not climbing as hoped towards ex-div, but today I decided to cash out the final tranche of the stake built up in the £13-14s during lockdown. Banking the gain rather than taking the dividend.

Why when SSE has always been a steady part of my portfolio, and is a solid bet on energy infrastructure?

Not just because I expect the share price will fall further than the payout. SSE are unlikely to repeat last winter's phenomenal income from gas thermal generation, and wind revenues continue to undershoot. Vattenfall warning of runaway costs facing all offshore wind developers. And SSE are pivoting from income cash cow to asset developer. Resetting the dividend to 3-4% is the clincher though, as an income investor that sort of yield does not put dinner on the table.

Yes Gas is providing us with about 50% this year. Today when it seems to me that the whole country is becalmed, wind is still pushing out 24% of our needs this week. Though maybe it is windy offshore somewhere.
The trouble with those figures is that they don't describe the intermittency.
Good to see that we have been net exporters for the last 24 hrs too.

But SSE share price is now more about politics than balance sheets again.

Its interesting to note that the SSE share price took 3 months to climb from £16.00 to £19 and

then retrace its £3 rise in 3 weeks.

If a recession is coming, Utilities tend to out perform especially if the oulook

to YEAR END IN MARCH 2023 expects a Dividend Yield over 5% and a Price earnings growth

of less than 1-bullish against most market yardsticks.

I forgot the old market adage "Sell in May and don't come back till St Ledgers Day"

IC just ran an article looking at the SSE share price movements last week and the prelims. Points out the lack of wind in the first half yr made the thermal and gas storage divisions the main growth drivers, with the low wind driving up the balancing market prices. FWIW it concludes that the shadow of a one off tax will remain until HMG makes a clear statement (Hmm, don't think I will hold my breath on that one!) but because of good yield concludes HOLD.
