osirisra: What a load of contradictory twaddle, talk about cover all the bases! Societe Generale cut its rating for United Utilities from 'buy' to 'hold' despite an expectation of reassuring first half results due out on 25 November. It said the recent strong share price performance (+14% relative to FTSE 100 since August) had driven the share price marginally above its 940p fair value and "the strong share price performance has been at odds with the recent rise in real bond yields (given 0.6x historical beta to gilt yield movements)". However the investment bank noted that United Utilities remained its preferred UK water holding and that it still prefers UK water over UK energy in the utilities market.

redartbmud: Vague talk of a bid - classic. Is it an attempt to stabilise the share price before the announcement of the compensation package for customers, or have they put their clients into the stock before pumping it?

pierre oreilly: LG - maybe, but the next results could reset all the numbers back again and off we go for another year. Of course the profit is limited by the regulators for most of the business, so at some stage, the best we - I mean I - can hope for are divis and earnings rising at rpiish and tghe share price to reflect that (i.e. not the spectular rise we've seen lately). Either that of the business moves much more into unregulated areas when of course anything could happen. I think safety is being valued very highly at the moment.

lord gnome: Very true Pierre. That's why I bought into UU. initially. I invest mainly for income and I reinvested my sale proceeds elsewhere with a higher yield. I thought UU. had run out of steam, but as you say, with gilts offering 2% max the rock solid divi on UU. looks very tasty by comparison. It will be interesting to see what happens to UU's share price once interest rates start to rise again. That could still be someway off into the future.

fangorn2: The next five years could be a watershed for U.K. utilities. With regulator Ofwat scheduled to reveal its final decision on price controls for water and sewerage companies in December, and with companies likely to announce new dividend policies in early 2015, there should be five years of revenue and dividend visibility for U.K. water companies, says Deutsche Bank. Recommends investors buy United Utilities (UU.LN) and Severn Trent (SVT.LN), forecasting average investor returns over 2015-20 of 7.3% and 6.6%, versus peer group returns of about 6%. But downgrades Pennon Group (PNN.LN) to hold from buy, reflecting the strong increase in its share price, and DB's worries around long-term risks to merchant energy from waste plant revenues (END) Dow Jones Newswires

brain smiley: 13 February 2013 Deal-thirsty overseas buyers like the look of the UK's water companies but new layers of regulation next year could lead to a deal drought. Today water experts warned that looming regulation would put a dampener on deals and the high share prices currently propped up by bid chatter would fall. JPMorgan's Edmund Reid and Chris Gallagher say: "Despite the high level of uncertainty, water valuations remain full, we believe helped by recent press comments regarding potential bids." They did admit that with a "buoyant corporate credit market" they couldn't "rule out M&A" but think "the closer we get to Ofwat's 2014 price review the less likely a bid becomes". Reid thinks that although the "demand for UK water assets from financial buyers" is evident in recent deals such as Sumitomo's purchase of Sutton & East Surrey. This demand will wane as the water regulator's 2014 price review floats into view, he claims. Reid and Gallagher are so sure of the adverse effects of regulation - including the Water Bill due before Parliament this year - that they have slashed the rating of their "favoured UK water utility", Pennon. They now rate Pennon neutral or hold - down from Buy - but have slightly increased their share price target to 695p. The share price of the water and waste group trickled down 8.5p to 670.5p today. JP Morgan rates Severn Trent, currently down 21p to 1591p, as neutral with a share price target of 1520p. Vague rumours that United Utilities is a bid target have been doing the rounds for months and have inflated its share price. But JP Morgan rates the stock neutral with a share price target of 720p, and the shares slipped 6p today to 724p.
