- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "PPL reported strong 4Q earnings and highlighted the strength of the underlying utility business by reaffirming its 5-6% EPS growth rate even in the face of increased dilution and currency re-strikes. Management increased its 2017-2020 capex forecast by $1.0B, raised its equity needs by $250M, and added currency hedges out through 2019. Current US tax reform proposals will have no more than a $0.10 impact to earnings which management believes they can offset." (2/2/2017)
