    GV makes a large portion of their revenue when old coal power plants are closed and new natural gas and solar power plants are opened because GV runs the Transmission lines to these new power plants. Florida Power & Light (FPL), GV's largest customer, plans to construct a total of eight new solar power plants by early 2018, which will use approximately 2.5 million solar panels and have nearly 600 megawatts of capacity.

    All of these new power plants will need new Transmission lines installed. 2018 is shaping up to be very good for GV.

    The market for Goldfield's services looks very strong according to their competitors recent announcements.

    From MYRG's Q2 conf call >> "Our bidding activity for all types of work, including small to medium-size projects, EPC projects and large transmission projects, has picked us substantially during late Q2 and early Q3, and we believe our experienced investor resources puts us in a favorable position to win our share of these projects. We are committed to our strategy and believe our efforts will position us to capitalize on this healthy T&D market for years to come."

    From WG's Q2 conference call >> "Our distribution businesses had a solid performance in the second quarter and there is high workload visibility for the remainder of the year."

    From MTZ's Q2 conference call >> "Revenue in our electrical distribution business was $97 million versus $96 million in last year's second quarter. More importantly, margins were much improved and we continue to build up of our recent momentum. While we're not satisfied with our margins in transmission, we've now had two consistent quarters and what we expect to be a transition year as we build backlog into the future. During the quarter we were awarded approximately $200 million of new awards and we're optimistic that we will continue to grow backlog in the second half of the year. We are confident we will enter 2018 in a solid position and we continue to believe that 2018 will be an excellent year for this segment."

    What GV may need most of all is a rainmaker who can deliver some higher quality projects for GV to work on. Perhaps an acretive acquisition would make good sense. Let's see how the conference call goes tomorrow as well. At least we will have a much better shot at exceeding 2nd quarter earnings a year from now!

    MYR Group and Willbros Group both posted strong Q2 revenue growth and both stated they are seeing a good environment for getting new work. I expect the same for Goldfield.

    Goldfield set the Q2 conference call for 10am on Thursday August 10th. It is their first conference call EVER so I guess we cshould forgive them for conducting the call after the stock market opens as they might not know that calls are usually done before the market opens or after the market closes.

    I can't imagine them reporting bad results. If that was the case, why start having conference calls at all?

    I think the most important thing for long term shareholders is how 2018 is shaping up. I hope they are ready to handle "analysts" questions on the call.

    WG just reported improved results and stated that they have good visibility on their T&D through to 2018. I figure GV will be reporting good results and contract visibility too. WG just needs to manage their business better so they can improve their profit margins. GV is already the best at managing their projects labor and expense costs as proven by their industry leading gross profit margins. Sottile and Wherry run a tight ship. No wasted money.

    Duke Energy's plans to retire an old coal plant and replace it with two new gas power plants. Goldfield makes the majority of their money on electric transmission work to new power plants.

    Here is a quote from the article indicating there is a lot of future work for Goldfield to bid on: "North Carolina’s population is expected to increase by 2 million by 2030 to 12 million. To cope with the growth, the company is revamping its infrastructure with Power/Forward Carolinas, a 10-year, $13 billion investment plan in North Carolina to modernize the state’s electric grid."

    If you know how Goldfield makes it's money, you'll understand that electric transmission work provides their biggest contracts with the highest profit margins. When old coal plants are retired and replaced with new gas and solar plants, Goldfield prospers.

    Here is an article about FPLs future Dania Beach power plant. This project could provide Goldfield with several years worth of transmission work.
