    The Fate of PG&E Stock Reminds Us to Treat Utilities Differently

    Wildfires caused by PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG) appear to now consume PCG stock. This utility finds itself in trouble as its negligence led to numerous wildfires across northern California. As a result, PCG stock is now in freefall. In its descent, PCG has exhibited the one trait one never wants to see in a utility stock -- instability. ### RIP PCG Stock I usually think "opportunity" when I hear about instability in most stocks. I often see a scandal or a setback in an equity and think "buying opportunity." Events such as a big earnings miss, an unexpected CEO departure, a sex scandal, or the like often hit companies. Stockholders often react overreact to such occurrences, selling off a stock much more than the ensuing event justifies. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips The lows of the financial crisis serve as a great example. Investors who bought into the S&P 500 near its March 2009 low of 611 benefited from huge profits once the negative feelings abated. Not this time. * 7 Stocks to Buy as the Dollar Weakens PCG stock lost more than 40% of its value on Monday. After Monday, the freefall continued. Since early October, Pacific Gas & Electric stock has lost more than 85% of its value. Negligence by PG&E over poorly maintained power lines sparked wildfires causing billions in property damage. Sadly, many also perished in these fires. This will not go away with a few million in payoffs or a better earnings report in the next quarter. Given the magnitude of the financial damages PCG stock faces, bankruptcy remains its only viable option. As of this writing, PCG trades in the single digits and continues to fall. Another shoe dropped as the S&P Dow Jones Indices announced Teleflex (NYSE:TFX) would replace PCG stock in the S&P 500 on Jan. 18. ### Utility Stocks Require a Different Investor Mindset The issues go well beyond mere company negligence. The company also violated a rarely discussed assumption. PCG stock represents a utility. Nobody invests $5,000 in a utility in hopes of finding the next Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and getting rich. Investors buy a utility stock to benefit from a stable, slow-growth equity that yields dividend income. More than that, investors expect these companies to define stability. These firms rarely face competition when they own the infrastructure. Their profit growth tends to mirror household formation increases and inflation. These firms often generate healthy dividends, but little else in the way of news. Peers such as NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) and Southern Company (NYSE:SO) quietly keep the power on, collect profits and pay dividends. If anything displaces a utility, one expects it would entail a technological shift such as the solar roof from Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). Few expect widespread negligence to take such a company down. However, PCG has become the exception. Looking back, the 2000 film Erin Brockovich should have served as a clue of the chronic issues that persist with PG&E. The negligence that caused the lawsuit discussed in that movie did nothing to change the company. As a result, PG&E faces another bankruptcy. Now, investors have to rethink whether the Warren Buffett mantra of "buy when there's blood in the streets" (or in California's case, when there's fire) should apply to utilities. * Top 10 Global Stock Ideas for 2019 From RBC Capital ### Final Thoughts on PCG Stock Due to its negligence, Pacific Gas & Electric reminded us that the instability we might tolerate from most equities has no place in a utility stock like PCG. More often than not, mistakes or unexpected setbacks create buying opportunities in stocks. However, with the essential role utilities play, instability can easily destroy such a company. This has become the case with PCG stock. Now, bankruptcy has become the company's only option. Bottom line, utilities should draw little attention. PCG stock broke that cardinal rule in the most outrageous manner imaginable. Now, bankruptcy courts will decide the fate of PG&E. It goes without saying that those who own this equity should get out before its lights out. More importantly, it reminds us that utility stocks should generate dividends, not attention.

    Utilities: Analyzing Gains and Losses Last Week

    Utilities: Analyzing Gains and Losses Last Week ## Will the defensives repeat 2018? Utilities continued to underperform broader markets last week. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU) rose almost 1%, while the S&P 500 rose 2.5% in the week ending January 11. Utilities beat the S&P 500 by a wide margin in 2018 particularly when markets started falling in the fourth quarter. The benchmark ten-year Treasury yield was largely flat last week—it closed at 2.70%. Utility stocks and Treasury yields usually trade inversely to each other. Higher interest rates could make utilities less appealing compared to bonds. The Fed delivered four quarter-point rate hikes last year—the most hikes since it started rate normalization in 2015. ## Movers and shakers NextEra Energy (NEE), the biggest utility by market cap, stock rose ~2%, while Duke Energy (DUK) fell almost 1% last week. Regulated utility giant Southern Company (SO) grew more than 4%, while Dominion Energy (D) fell more than 3%. PG&E (PCG) stock fell 30% last week due to bankruptcy concerns. On January 13, PG&E reported that CEO Geisha Williams resigned. We’ll discuss PG&E more in the next part of this series. Merchant power stock NRG Energy (NRG) rose more than 3% last week.

    Utilities: Gains and Losses Last Week

    Analyzing Utilities in the Week Ending January 4 ## A shaky start to 2019 Utilities, the defensives, underperformed broader markets last week. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU), the representative of the top utility stocks in the country, closed marginally down. The S&P 500 gained almost 2% in the week ending January 4. The broader markets were still volatile. The better-than-expected jobs report for December and Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments on being patient about raising rates helped the sentiment late last week. ## Movers and shakers NextEra Energy (NEE) fell marginally, while Duke Energy (DUK), the second-biggest utility by market cap, fell 0.8% last week. Duke Energy declared a quarterly dividend of $0.9275 per share last week, which indicates a dividend yield of 4.4%. The ex-dividend date for the dividend is February 14. The dividend will be paid on March 18. Duke Energy has a long dividend payment history. Duke Energy has paid a cash dividend for 93 consecutive years. According to Reuters, wildfire-stricken PG&E (PCG) is considering filing for bankruptcy. The company is facing a multi-billion dollar liability associated with wildfires in 2017 and 2018. Bankruptcy isn’t certain yet. However, the company reported in November that its existing insurance wouldn’t be enough. The wildfire-related liabilities could have a material impact on the company’s financial condition. PG&E fell 30% in after-hours trading on January 4 following the news, according to Reuters. Top regulated utility stock Southern Company (SO) rose 1.7%, while Dominion Energy (D) fell 1.4% last week. Dominion Energy completed its much-awaited SCANA (SCG) acquisition last week.
