Aye Ex Dividend gap closed today. Patience is rewarded here. I only have a small holding from 896 after XD having sold out at the May peak Chartwise not overbought. Fib targets 1.618 at 951. 2.618 at 1001 and 4.236 at 1082 to match the rather high intraday spike to ATH on 26 May. free stock charts from uk.advfn.com

Yes water shares going up while rest of market falling over last 2 days. Flight to defensives or just sector being bought back after falls ?

Sp beginning to look healthy again. £10 looks a reasonable medium term target.

It was published at 7.00am I think : http://www.ofwat.gov.uk/consultation/delivering-water2020-consulting-on-our-methodology-for-the-2019-price-review/ Not much reaction atm - about level

Thanks jonwig. OFWAT's meant to be publishing the new guidelines by today but I haven't seen anything. I guess the strength in the sector means that some news is leaking out. Call a plumber!

Getting tempted myself Alphorn.. But this 30th June comment has me holding back.Further to fall perhaps? Just went ex divi as well didnt it? "”United Utilities, down 2.4%. Credit Suisse double downgraded the water and wastewater services company to Underperform from Outperform. TP 850p(1000p)” Water utilities "Credit Suisse predicts end of an era for UK Water, cuts target prices" Analysts at Credit Suisse downgraded their view on the UK water sector, telling clients there was a fair chance that OFWAT would be less generous in its next regulatory price review, PR 19. Key to all of the above, the Swiss broker estimated OFWAT would set a baseline weighted-average-cost-of-capital below 3% for the period running from 2020 to 2025. The last time OFWAT lowered its WACC, from 5.1% to 3.7% real, that was offset by a roughly 175 basis points drop in bond yields. OFWAT also proved significantly flexible when it came to allowing companies to use their financeability levers. hTTp://sharecast.com/news/credit-suisse-predicts-end-of-an-era-for-uk-water-cuts-target-prices/26134657.html

This is a bond proxy which will react poorly to talk of any tightening in interest rate policy.

It may well see both 850p and 1000p over the next yr. I just put another limit buy for 870 ; this still seems a safe place to me.
