EDF raises prices again Frog “The poorly regulated privatised model has been very bad for consumers.” Yup, THAT is the problem. Sort out the regulation. If it isn’t administered properly, then ANY new buiness coming in, eg Amazon, will get away with whatever it can. “In my view, CNA is not a safe long term investment.” Hmm. At the moment, it doesn’t look too rosy, but who knows? I use First Utility and have found them ok. As you doubtless know, they’re owned by Shell. If the new energy frontier is, eg, solar powered, then maybe a FAANG will invest in the huge solar farms and buy the likes of Centrica as Shell did with First Utility. And similarly improve the service. That may produce a windfall for utility shareholders, but again who knows. New entries are potentially just as bad as the supposed awful big 6, look no further than Extra Energy. The complaints chart for suppliers by size has lines converging; ofgem.gov.uk – 17 Jun 13 Compare supplier performance on complaints See data on energy suppliers' performance in handling consumer complaints. " The cynical exploitation of loyal customers is not a good look." No, it isn’t. But imo the cynical exploitation of customers league has been topped by tech companies. By a country mile.

EDF raises prices again El Kel I agree with much of what you say. Of course there is no reason to believe that the tech giants will be trustworthy custodians of our utilities. Having said that, technology is here to stay and the Big 6 will have to get on board or get taken over. CNA’s current predicament is largely of its own making. The cynical exploitation of loyal customers is not a good look. It prospered for a long while making excessive profits which disincentivised any move to making the business more efficient. The result was inevitable. The poorly regulated privatised model has been very bad for consumers. In my view, CNA is not a safe long term investment. Cheers, Frog in a tree

EDF raises prices again A major article in today’s ST suggests that bleak times are ahead for the Big Six as tech companies muscle in on their business and decarbonisation reshapes to power industry. The article notes that CNA’s share price has fallen 60% since late 2013 and that there is no prospect of a saviour in sight. The days when they could exploit and overcharge their customers are disappearing fast. Cheers, Frog in a tree

Centrica bullish on BREAKOUT SP has been touching 160 intraday and this is the longest period it has remained above 150 since it crashed through in mid 2015. Gotta take positives with cna where possible… Anyone know if you can insert a chosen period of sp graph like we could on the old site?

Market report: Centrica ahead as price-cap fears ebb The times: “Strong demand for Centrica shares made it the second biggest riser in the leading index after Jefferies argued that the City was underestimating its ability to strengthen its balance sheet and raise billions of additional capital through disposals.” While the Telegraph published the following: ://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/06/12/market-reportcentrica-ahead-price-cap-fears-ebb/ Disappointed to see the SP drop a little today though and not continue the rise.

Re: dividend ? - Cher Eugene Ruwenzori As you had entered it as a "link" (in blue and underlined) it is impossible to copy or cut and paste. at any rate they both failed when I tried them.My main grumble was the delay in updating Fundamentals, particularly dividends, which deserves a whacking great fine, if that was possible.

Re: dividend ? i cant believe you people don't know where to check such things. It would be on the company investor page.But also a very informative site is [link] you can see all upcoming dividends ( ex div and pay date). You can type in the ones you are looking for too.

Re: dividend ? pms01 Hi,As I said in my previous entry, payment is due on 29th June - unless you are using CFDs when it would have been paid on 10th May. So nobody has been paid at this stage.Cheers,Ruwenzori
