UK Stocks and Shares and Investment tips
of the Tips: Share Recommendations at 4th Aug 2010
National Grid needs no introduction and has said that it
intends to grow dividends by at least 8% per year until
2012. Based on its current share price that means a yield
of 7% and makes the shares attractive, reckons The Times.
Whitbread's share price has taken some tumbles recently
but the company is now trading at a worthwhile discount
to its competitors and is likely to be over the worst of
the downturn. Buy on current good value, says The Independent.
Passenger transport group FirstGroup is currently trading
at around nine times 2011 earnings. This makes it cheaper
than any of its peers for no obvious reason, especially
given its current dividend yield of nearly 6%. Buy, says
Insurance group Aviva (formerly Norwich Union) has an attractive
dividend and a share price that's fallen 18% since March.
This makes it look undervalued and attractive to income-seekers,
according to The Telegraph.
Electrocomponents distributes all sorts of supplies to the
electrical and plumbing trades. Recovery prospects in its
key markets look good and it has an attractive dividend
– buy, says The Telegraph.

CWW is newly demerged and its management have promised growth
to shareholders – not income. This is a high risk
approach – if CWW delivers, all will be well, but
if it fails to, the markets could punish the company severely.
Avoid for now, says The Times.
De La Rue prints the UK's banknotes – a pretty secure
business, you might think. However, the company's shares
have already risen high enough to factor in this benefit
and, combined with a modest yield of 4.7%, no longer offer
very good value. Look elsewhere, says The Times.
