  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Exelon Corporation’s earnings improved year over year, driven by regulatory rate hikes, favorable weather and the positive impact of lower nuclear outage days at the Generation segment. Further, the company is benefiting from the Pepco Holdings acquisition. At 2016 end, the company was serving higher number of customers than the previous year and sold a larger volume of electricity than the year-ago period. Time rate approval is also helping the company. Moreover, it continues with hedging program to manage market risks and protect against price fluctuations. Shares of the company have returned higher than the broader industry in the last 12 months. However, Exelon is subject to the impact of commodity price volatility and price fluctuation in the wholesale markets." (2/21/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "EXC hosted an analyst meeting on Wednesday, highlighting the strong 7-9% EPS growth from its regulated utilities driven by rate increases at PHI which should close the under-earning gap.
