Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FirstEnergy Corp. stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "FE reported in-line quarterly estimates and, keeping with their plan to become a regulated utility, took a $9.2B charge associated with the write-down of their competitive assets. While we believe management will be successful in transitioning the company we struggle to see the stock achieving a "regulatedtype" valuation during this period and maintain our Hold rating." (2/23/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "FirstEnergy’s broadening regulated base and growth in transmission business are expected to boost earnings. FirstEnergy’s modernization drive will boost the company’s service reliability and lead to customer retention.This has led to its ambitious “Energizing the Future” plan aimed at upgrading and expanding its transmission capabilities. The company expects to generate positive cash flows through 2018. However, stringent regulatory norms and intensifying competition are some of the headwinds. A higher debt/capital ratio compared with peers and a negative outlook by rating agency may drive its cost of capital. The current rate of return from the company’s share is lower compared with the return from the broader industry in the last twelve months." (12/19/2016)

  • Bank of America Corp analysts commented, "With new CEO Chuck Jones at the helm, the company appears poised to discuss initiatives that could reduce operating expenses," said the analysts, noting the company spends roughly $2.6 billion in fuel/commodity purchases, operating expenses and corporate spending.Related Link: Morgan Stanley Upgrades FirstEnergy To Overweight They believe FirstEnergy will aim to reduce this by roughly 5–10 percent over the next one to two years, with most of this from the competitive side."We find FirstEnergy's focus on balance sheet repair, deregulated stabilization, and regulated growth to be a welcome shift. Prior utilities shifting from deregulation (Dominion, Duke, AEP to name a few) have tended to see boosted relative valuations and improved financials since the last recession," (8/8/2016)
