Atlantic Power Corporation Message Board

    Buyout coming and we get to decide the price!

    From Seeking Alpha article:

    "For arguably the cleanest portfolio in the business, investors can turn to Atlantic Power , which offers a portfolio that's 96% clean and a dividend yield near 7%. No matter where you look, the industry is working hard to clean up its generating capabilities. (Link)

    (Note: Though the above quote was taken from an article that was published as recently as yesterday, on the Web site The Motley Fool, the dividend data is outdated and may be due to the article being composed prior to the company's announcement of a dividend reduction.)

    Those clean assets would be quite appealing to companies such a Duke Energy (DUK), NextEra Energy (NEE) or Exelon (EXC). So, for those still invested in AT, holding on to your shares to allow further developments to take shape may be a prudent thing to do. That said, however, AT's problems are far from over. As can be seen in the chart below, AT's stock price decline began as far back as November of last year, which raises some questions surrounding the idea that certain investors may have known about recent developments in advance."
