RIP Digitallook

Tough time all round waiting for markets to settle after the bears wrest control of markets. Even more disconcerting is the loss of my watchlist and favoured research resource of many years.
I'm trying to think of a time I didn't use it but can't recall how long it has been up and running or how long I have been using it, perhaps 15 years or more?

Anyway, looks like the new owners have stamped their mark and swept away the old which has unfortunately deleted my account and my historic global watchlist which served me as a litmus test of all my thoughts, strategies, and legacy investments.

So in having to start again, the new site appears less user friendly and slower given the new graphics etc. Although, the old site has been unwieldy too given the amount of animated adverts that it was being asked to bear.

Can't complain too much but now on the lookout for new tools and resources.

Utilities: risk v. value.

Given the ongoing falls in UK utilities and the inertia effect it seems to having on my own portfolio, its interesting to read Citi's comments that much of the risk is now being discounted and value has appeared (uk.webfg.com: Downside for United Utilities now limited even if nationalised, Citi says).
Is this enough to sway investors and begin a fightback for these companies?
