I do recall Alistair Darling's relish at shafting Northern Rock's shareholders, in order to save the Bank where he had his mortgage. Must give us pause for thought.. I understand that SSE is flogging some its wind farms off, having extracted a fixed forward contract on wind produced electricity? Any bigger brains in the house to correct this assumption? If true, SSE get cash to redress debts & maintenance costs, I presume?

RE: NG v SSE v CNA
You hold them ALL including DRAX, UU. and SVT. UU. is thought to be the most likely water utility for M&A as it is a straight water play, unlike PNN. It is noted that CNA has the best debt ratio, of the power utilities, so overweight on those two.

NG v SSE v CNA
Which one would you go heavyweight on or two would you keep. I have 1280 in National Grid [ NG ], 1600 Centrica [CNA ] and 700 Scottish Southern Energy [SSE] I have £6000 in each, though £7000 in SSE. Which one is to be sold? Any Help is welcome...! I know the pitfalls of all three regarding earnings and debt ratio's! Thanks Scott

Goldman Sachs has Sell rating
Looks like I was right to follow the cautious outlook as Goldman is... Though remember Investors, 'SELL' ratings can sometimes mean a buy signal to traders. Therefore, what I am actually saying is to forget these sell, buy, and hold recommendayions. These are for the traders! If you think the markets are going lower you buy defensive stocks as they outperform the FTSE100. If you think the markets are going higher you buy riskier shares [ BP, RDSB, BLT, GLEN, KAZ etc ]...
