Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aqua America stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Aqua America is benefiting from positive rate activity, organic growth and contribution from its acquired assets. Aqua America continues to gain from the expanding customer base, which is resulted from acquisitions and organic initiatives. The company aims to invest more than $1.4 billion in the 2019-2021-time frame for strengthening infrastructure. The company also has a very long history of rewarding its shareholders through payment of regular dividend. Shares of Aqua America have outperformed its industry in the past six months. However, similar to other water utilities, the company gets impacted by unfavorable weather conditions that reduce the demand for water and impact performance. Moreover, contamination of water supplied might result in disruption of water services and lead the company to incur extra cost." (10/12/2019)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We use a sum-of-the-parts approach to value WTR using a blend of water and gas multiples. At this current juncture, we think the stock trades above our bull-base valuation and we see limited near-term upside; our rating remains In Line. Earnings notes. 2Q19 adjusted EPS of $0.37 was flat to prior year. EPS growth from rate cases and customer growth (acquisitions/ organic) was offset by higher depreciation, lower consumption, and impact of repairs tax. 2019 capex is still expected to be ~$550mm and the company reaffirmed its $1.4bn capex plan through ’21, which supports 7% rate base growth in their legacy water business. The Y/Y customer growth rate is still expected to be between 2-3% for ’19 (from both organic growth and acquisitions). Peoples Gas update. Aqua still targets to close the Peoples Gas acquisition in fall of this year." (8/11/2019)
