What are Wall Street analysts saying about Clearway Energy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Clearway Energy stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Clearway Energy is poised to gain from its long-lived renewable assets. Clearway Energy’s planned capital expenditure expands renewable generation and helps it to maintain its generation portfolio in compliance with environmental regulations. Focus on North American operation is acting as a tailwind for the company. Notably, shares of Clearway Energy have outperformed its industry in the past six months. The company completes acquisition of 527 MW Carlsbad Energy Center further expanding its clean energy generation portfolio. However, Clearway Energy generates a substantial volume of electricity from renewable sources, subject to favorable weather conditions that could not be assured always. Dependence on performance of third-party transmission lines may impact its performance. High debt level of the company is a concern." (1/16/2020)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We update our FY19 EBITDA and CAFD forecasts to $970m and $160m from $994m and $181m, respectively. Our ’20/’21 EBITDA and CAFD estimates remain unchanged at $1,007m/$1,010m and $200m/$209m, respectively. We continue to exclude $90m of cash dividends from the PG&E assets from our forecast. Our 2019 forecast now reflects latest management guidance including YTD headwinds as well as contributions from the committed growth investments (including Hawaii solar acquisition, the Mylan CHP project, and DG investments), lower financing, cost savings and O&M management. Management increased its pro-forma CAFD outlook to $300m from $295m based on Repowering 1 improvements. Our ‘20/’21 forecast remains unchanged. Our 12-month price target up to $17.50 from $16/share, reflecting an improved risk weighting of our downside and upside case scenarios for how PCG treats CWEN’s contracts in bankruptcy." (8/11/2019)
