Hello Share Bouncers. I am now back at my desk following a very invasive operation the day before. However the team carrying it out was a modal of politeness, friendliness and efficiency. Would that some of Britain’s Chef execs were as useful. There’s a very competent management at the National Grid (NG.) too. But that’s not the big factor in the current ballooning share price. The value has shown a 14% rise since Brexit. A few days ago it was another 2% higher than that.

Hello Share Munchers. Ever since I began writing for this noble website, I’ve been supporting National Grid (NG.) And the case for buying the stock is even greater these days, in my humble opinion.Most of us shareholders who do it for a living are keener on reliable dividends than we might have been in the past. This is due to the alarming falls in share prices recently courtesy of uncertainty about China, Brazil and Europe.

Hello Easter Bunnies. Please take notes.

See you in church.

Hello Share Pruners. As we continue to highlight companies which are probably a bit safer than most in the mad days we face on the stock markets, may I point you in the direction of National Grid (NG.)

Hello Share Springers. There’s a share in my portfolio which I keep forgetting to check. It’s the National Grid (NG.) This is a big mistake, as we should all monitor our babies at least once a week.

Shares were up slightly after a disastrous start to the week. That initial poor show was due, as I explained earlier, to a bout of profit- taking in the US, after a few exceptionally good weeks for American traders.

Hello Share Bunnies: Have you ever wondered why a big Footsie share falls so fast and so far on a piece of bad news, like a profit warning? They certainly drop faster than we private armchair tycoons can sell out and avoid heavy damage.
