    Yep, a few.
    In no particular order.

    1. Discount over institution price;
    2. Excellent initial yield over 18 months due installment;
    3. Reasonable yield after that;
    4. Renewable energy;
    5. Taking a punt Labour won't get in, and if it does the regulation threat will be softened a bit;
    6. Shouldn't be selling, but as we are might as well do my bit to stop foreign ownership;
    7. Price is competitive due to Mighty River effect;
    8. Retail will be lightly scaled and institutions may be more heavily scaled creating demand.
    9. No brokerage payable.
    10. Not buying Genesis or AIR, so no more after this one.
    11. What else to do....Had thought of upgrading the DB9, but my mechanic said I'd be mad, as it is a keeper.

    As always: Not a recommendation, do your own DD.

    There is every chance of that Mac.

    Just be aware though, if buying on the secondary market, (prior to May 2015), you do not have the retail limit of 60 cents for the second installment.
    Your second installment due then will be the institution price.

    yeah - same reasons as SB.
    Gut says that they will avoid the MRP effect of dropping after. But gut can be wrong.

    Long term I see demand for electricity continuing to drop as people get more energy-efficient appliances.
    Also, I suspect that once the Government has unloaded its power sector investments it will no longer be willing to suffer public flak over high electricity prices and therefore move to de-protect that market.

    Disclosure: I have a few thousand Vector shares that I have owned since the float, but have no intention of buying any more shares in anything.

    Well I got enticed back into the market. First time back in there for about 20 years apart from some play investing with a share club.
    Pretty much the same reason as SB plus another major personal reason. I have almost run out of mortgages to drop surplus money into.
    This is not the best of forums to say perhaps I have too much weighting in property investments.
    I wonder what too much means.
    The problem is like it has always been for all shares.
    It is easy to buy but how do you know when to sell.

    Demand has already showing as decreasing.

    So; not only does the Govt sell these off cheaply (almost doubled in price); but now they have heaps of money to give back to us shareholders.
    Thanks John Key

    Meridian earnings up, capital return possible
    Meridian Energy, which generates about 30 per cent of the country's electricity, lifted first-half earnings 21 per cent as it widened margins and clamped down on costs, and has flagged capital returns for shareholders over the next five years, including a special dividend with today's report.
