Dukes 1.5 billion dollar or 19.8 million share repurchase equates to a $75.757 per share purchase price. This saves nearly 63 million per year in dividend payments.
most (all) utility and other stocks. CNP is still a very good investment. Both electric utility and gas provider. Operations are hedged so dividend and earnings are safe. Slow but steady. Still better than 10 or 30 year bonds. Much better than CD'S or money market funds!
you are either a liar or incapable of doing a web search. I am an electrical engineer who has worked in utilities R&D. Pretty low for a short pretending to know all.
google DC transformers and you will see why we are an AC system. If some breakthrough occurs, for DC transformers DC might become viable. They are more expensive,have lower reliability, all is a head wind for DC now and in the future!
They have step up and step down transformers for DC also! The problem with solar is the sun does not always shine. The problem with wind mills is the wind does not always blow.. Electrical storage is very expensive and dangerous. The average person does not care or have knowledge to maintain batteries. So with solar and wind you need distribution and remote generation!
Ask an electrical engineer why DC is not the answer!
