bountyhunter: don't know about the kitchen sinking but the share price has certainly been sinking! ...actually I thought the same when I read the statement - they couldn't have put a more negative slant on it if they had tried!

bobby12340: Eventually people will realise the dividend on the old SSE is good-80p index linked-should give a share price of around £14-just below 6% yield Then MERGCO will contribute something-who knows as yet but SSE retail was profitable, its Npower bit that needs turned around.

drectly: thanks Bobby. 80p does seem a reasonable support for the existing share price. Order of magnitude, retail business miight add 10% to value, take as potential upside but do not count on anything, easiest way to look at the share at present. I hold, at present share price will not increase or decrease.

1squintyflinty: The dividend policy implemented in May this year keeps us safe until 2023.By that time you will have received over 35% of your money back in dividends.The share price would have to drop below £8.50 for you to lose money.I don't think that it will ever drop to this level,so medium term,this is a buy (IMHO). Also if you reinvest your dividends by purchasing more share you'll increse your return.

bobby12340: Circular advises 1 share in original SSE and 1 share in NEWCO. Original SSE will pay 80p dividend index linked for 5 years-implies share price of £14.50 at 5.5% yield. Plus NEWCO 1 share,the retail arm contributed about 20% of SSE profits, if it pays 16p/share to reflect the OLDCO 96p dividend this year then that implies a share price of around £4.00. So we could end up with shares in 2 companies valued £18.50 compared with current price of £13.50.

skinny: Preliminary results for the year to 31 March 2018 The dividend :- "The financial objective of this strategy is to remunerate shareholders' investment through the payment of dividends. SSE believes that its dividends should be sustainable, based on the quality and nature of its assets and operations, the earnings derived from them and the longer-term financial outlook. In line with this, taking account of the impact of the expected key developments in 2018/19, and reflecting the underlying quality and value of its assets and earnings and the cash flows they deliver, SSE's plan for the dividend for the five years to 2023 is as follows: · For 2018/19, SSE is intending to recommend a full-year dividend of 97.5 pence per share, an increase of 3% on 2017/18, which is broadly in line with expectations for RPI inflation. This provides clarity in a year of transition and is not subject to the timing of either the SSE Energy Services transaction or the Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap Bill). · For 2019/20, SSE is planning to set the first post-transaction dividend at 80.0 pence per share, which reflects the impact of the changes in the SSE group expected to take effect by then. This provides a sustainable basis for future dividend growth. · For 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23 SSE is targeting annual increases in the full-year dividend that at least keep pace with RPI inflation. This reflects SSE's confidence in the quality and value of its assets and earnings and cash flows they deliver. This plan for the dividend for the five years to March 2023, when the current electricity distribution Price Control comes to an end, supersedes SSE's previous reference to a dividend cover range and is a plan which: · Aims to provide shareholders with certainty in 2018/19, a year of transition for SSE; · Reflects the changes in the SSE group expected to take effect by the start of the 2019/20 financial year; and · Sets the dividend on a path for sustainable growth for the three years from 2020. SSE intends to retain a Scrip dividend scheme but where take-up of the full-year dividend exceeds 20%, SSE now intends to buy back shares so the dilutive effect of the Scrip is limited. In addition to the dividend plan above, subject to the necessary approvals being secured, the transaction relating to SSE Energy Services announced on 8 November means shareholders in SSE will receive one share in the planned new independent energy supply and services company for every one SSE share they hold at the demerger record date."

bountyhunter: Could be good for shareholders in unlocking value imho... "...SSE would demerge its shares to its shareholders" SSE in Talks With Innogy to Create New Britain-Focused Energy Supply Company 07/11/2017 3:11pm Dow Jones News SSE (LSE:SSE) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Tuesday 7 November 2017 Click Here for more SSE Charts. By Oliver Griffin SSE PLC (SSE.LN) said on Tuesday that it was in talks with Innogy SE (IGY.XE) in regards to combining their Great Britain-based energy supply businesses. The new independent company would combine SSE's household energy and services unit with Innogy's household and business energy unit. SSE said that discussions were continuing and well-advanced, but added that no final decisions, or binding agreements, had been made. In the event that the deal goes ahead, the new combined business would be listed and SSE would demerge its shares to its shareholders. SSE said it was mindful of the requirements of customers and the concerns of employees, and said it will disclose the outcome of the discussions as soon as they are concluded. http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/sse-SSE/share-news/SSE-in-Talks-With-Innogy-to-Create-New-Britain-Foc/76034956

johnroger: SSE – The results may be obscure and bewildering but the dividend looks very attractive BY ROBERT SUTHERLAND SMITH May 21, 2015, 08:51 AM UTC The first thing to report is that the SSE share price rose to 1,696p during the course of report day 20th May 2015; this is the highest the share price has been in five years. Consider it a nice capital gain with which to pay an energy bill that has not come down with the plunge in the wholesale price of gas and oil. One of course should not be surprised by that, insofar as one might reasonably suppose that it should have been a year when profit margins improved somewhat. I turned to the announcement with more than the usual eagerness I experience in approaching the results of energy companies. They occupy page after page that go on and on endlessly telling me much but containing little I readily understand. They looked, I thought rather miserably, as though they had been prepared by a multi disciplined team of PR operatives, lawyers and accountants, to consume those questing evidence of lower energy prices to come. As I cut my way through the seemingly endless forest of obscure and – for my purpose – less than pertinent information about everything except the accounting numbers, I grew fatigued scrolling down the endless pages of stuff. Being a true son of Albion, I persisted and at long last, after endless scrolled pages, I came at long last, to the meat of the matter – the accounts themselves. It was like arriving at an oasis after weeks crossing parched desert sands. Numbers were adjusted and restated, but on the basis of restated figures, it seems that net profits last year rose by 49% to £664 million and diluted earnings per share by 66% to a reported 55p. If that figure is to be relied upon, then the annual dividend of 88.4p is being substantially paid out of capital, which strikes me as unlikely; at least to the extent of 33.4p a share. The annual dividend by the way, was reported as up 1.9%. Turning to the cash position in the hope of greater clarity, operating cash was down 15% to £2,156.9 million which fortunately, was still 3.3 times larger than the cost of £598.1 million annual dividend. The interesting question is to ask where that operating cash went? Scratching my head, I then had a look at the latest market consensus estimates to see how that dove tailed into the outcome. They estimated that the underlying adjusted earnings per share figure was 124.1p, meaning that the 88.4p of dividend was being paid out of earnings not capital after all. Moreover, it was well covered. They also show that pre-tax profit was £735.4 million, not the company’s £664 million. Next year the consensus estimate is for pre-tax profits to increase 95% but earnings per share to come down 12% to 109p. Turnover is estimated as 4.3% lower, which does not seem to suggest a big reduction in energy prices to customers. The role of the ‘hybrid’ capital imported into the balance sheet in all this is no doubt significant. The important aspect of all this, is that despite all the smoke and mirrors, the market consensus estimates that annual dividends should rise from 88.4p to 90.83p this year (a forward estimated dividend yield of 5.5%) and to 93.6p the next year (a dividend yield of 5.6%). The company is clearly intent on maintaining the real value of the dividend payout so the shares continue to be a no brainer attractive buy, in my opinion.
