  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In the last six months shares of Clearway Energy have outperformed its industry. Clearway Energy is poised to gain from long-lived renewable assets. Focus on North American assets saves the company from foreign-exchange fluctuations and sovereign risks. The strategic acquisition of assets and planned capital expenditure to further expand renewable generation will help the company to maintain its generation portfolio in compliance with environmental regulations. 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. " (7/19/2019)
