NG UU +3 more NG UU SVT SSE CNA

UK utility stocks (mostly) rally after election result, but where next? For almost all the major utilities on the FTSE, the election result has seen rallies to new records. With the Conservative win, that prospect is banished for at least five years. As a result, shares in these firms have rallied sharply, with the strong dividends an added attraction.

Since then the trend has taken off, confirming the bullish view. Here too the shares have rocketed, hitting a record high this week for SSE. But this comes off the back of a remarkable surge from £9.50 in late 2018 and May 2019, which has seen the shares gain over 50%.
