What are analysts saying about PG&E Co. stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PG&E Co. stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PG&E Corp.’s systematic investments in infrastructure projects, backed by a stable financial position, are expected to improve service reliability and meet demand. Of the total projected 2017 capital expenditure, the company plans to invest around $3,900 million for general rate case projects and $1,000 million in each of gas transmission and storage as well as electric transmission owner projects. PG&E Corp.’s share price outperformed the Zacks categorized Utility-Electric power industry in the last one year, supported by its stable financial position that allows regular dividend payments. On the flip side, cost of compliance to new and stringent regulations is a major concern for management. Moreover, the company faces massive penalties on account of unwanted events and changes in environmental mandates which could impact its financial performance." (4/28/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "PCG announced 4Q16 EPS of $1.33 vs our estimate of $1.25, consensus of $1.34, and last year's earnings of $0.50. The company affirmed 2017 ongoing EPS guidance of $3.55-$3.75 with equity issuances of $400-$600 million and a weighted average $34.4 billion rate base. A cost of capital proposal was recently filed with the CPUC, and we expect that with the overhang of San Bruno complete, PCG will return to a premium PE multiple." (2/17/2017)
