Here is what Diamond Hill Small-Mid Cap Fund has to say about UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI) in its Q1 2022 investor letter:

"Taking a cue from the energy crisis in Europe, investors are questioning whether UGI Corporation, a natural gas and electric power utility, may mismanage commodity risk or face some demand destruction. We believe these risks are transient and manageable. What's more, UGI has made significant investments in its renewable fuels business, including renewable natural gas (RNG) and bioLPG-propane produced from renewable sources such as plant and vegetable waste material."
