New Buy!

I also made a new purchase during May. I bought 16 shares of National Grid Plc ADR (NGG). 

NGG offers steady business as it works mainly on transmission networks in UK, but it also has business in USA. It delivers electricity to around 3.4 Million customers and Natural Gas to around 3.6 Million customers in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island. 

So National Grid Plc is an electricity and gas utility company. The UK Electricity Transmission includes high voltage electricity transmission networks in Great Britain. Its UK Gas Transmission provides the gas transmission network in Great Britain and UK liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage activities. The Company’s UK Gas Distribution includes four of the eight regional networks of Great Britain’s gas distribution system. US Regulated includes gas distribution networks, electricity distribution networks and high voltage electricity transmission networks in New York and New England and electricity generation facilities in New York and Massachusetts. The Company’s activities primarily relate to non-regulated businesses and other commercial operations, including United Kingdom based gas and electricity metering activities; UK property management; a UK LNG import terminal; other LNG operations, and US unregulated transmission pipelines.

There is a small fee for dividends to be deducted for ADR-shares so if you can you could buy this stock in LSE using the Queens money.  (example. A fee of $0.02 per ADR will be deducted from cash dividends for the 2015/16 final dividend.)

Have a nice day!
