Well it may have been taken ok in the morning but by the afternoon and today the market reacted!!

Will let the dust settle a bit then average down / lower my target price.

Good luck all 👍🏻

Big article in IC today pointing out the increasing risks with UU and with increasing interest rates , growing political scrutiny and the risks of more fines and investment pressure they now rate it as a Sell.

With UU. as one of my largest shareholdings I was pretty horrified to read this https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/cumbrian-village-suffered-321-sewage-spills-in-past-year-clean-it-up-xgcwbsj57?

This really is unacceptable, we must do better!

Politically all the water companies are in a tight corner , they cannot be allowed to make substantially bigger profits in what is effectively a supply monopoly, but from a positive viewpoint they cannot be seen to fail so Ofwat I think will tinker with the charges to keep the company reasonably healthy.
In the Utility sector I have a much larger holding in SSE , I think that although there are some parallels with water , the electrification green agenda has got to have a positive effect on both the supply side and the distribution. In contrast , the UK's water demand is probably not going to rise dramatically on an annual basis in the medium term.
I hadn't noticed the OFWAT announcement , but when I went looking for it , I noticed this has sneaked in
which does look like the doors are being pushed harder closed. It is rather mealy mouthed when it comments that these changes will encourage investment!

Looking at the £1.6 Billion boost headline , I am not clear from reading the annoucement that the money is coming from central funding , but looks to me like UU is paying for it. I can't find any clarity on the UU website either. Hope I am wrong.

UU scored big this week when OFWAT announced £1.1billion of investment in CSO's (Combined sewer overflows) of which UU will receive £940million which is great news, but the revenue side of things will still be a worry whilst inflation persists. Maybe the market has priced this in and feel that the BOE will pull a masterstroke or are we seeing a pump before the dump on the earnings an revenue announcement in May?

What's your thoughts on why the share price is holding up so well at the moment whilst it's looking so gloomy on the profit front? I'm not expecting fuel, chemical, electric prices to be coming down in the near future with global tensions continuing as they are. Investment is going to be a struggle in the next AMP period due to expected increase in new infrastructure purchasing costs. I'm genuinely confused and I am considering taking a good chunk of my investment off the table to lock in some good profit, however the it looks like it's about to pump out of this range...

Well wasn't much resistance after all.
Half year results out today show a net loss, allowing for debt interest cost rises, but not sure how relevant to the share price, which has become mainly about regulation and renationalisation risks.

Here are the latest UU Levels

31st July 2022 Actual stock Change since last week Average year Last year
Regional Total 58.9% -2.1% 76.6% 68.4%
Carlisle 63.1% -0.9% 83.2% 57.9%
West Cumbria 98.5% 4.8% 94.3% 61.2%
Haweswater & Thirlmere 62.6% -2.3% 64.5% 52.1%
Pennine Sources 48.9% -1.9% 73.6% 70.3%
Dee & Vyrnwy Reservoirs 60.4% -2.6% 85.1% 77.8%

So last yr was bad but this one worse. No surprise.
Effect on profits is less predictable. More costs from moving water, less water to sell , but the higher temps mean more useage.
More pressure on the companies to invest in more infrastructure.
But my bigger long term worry is the increasing likelihood of a Labour Government. Next GE by Jan25 .Sell before then?
