    Nothing exciting to me on the conference call or the questions asked. It sounds like they will invest most of the money obtained into their infrastructure and opportunities. And looking more into the Rhode Island area purchase. They said Buy backs could be a possibility. Maybe I missed something on the dividend but I didn't hear anything mentioned in the call.

    I haven't seen a declaration for a dividend yet? if it has, would someone say so here? thanks in advance. If it was a parallel date from the previous quarter, the payout date would be July 1st (approximate), and the ex-dividend date would be somewhere around June 9th. The declaration date (if it hasn't been announced yet would be around the last week in May.

    All is good. It is because of the UK sale.

    Announces first-quarter reported net loss (GAAP) of $2.39 per share, reflecting a $2.65 per share net loss from discontinued operations associated with the U.K. utility business.

    Adjusting for special items, first-quarter 2021 earnings from ongoing operations (non-GAAP) were $219 million, or $0.28 per share, compared to $206 million, or $0.27 per share, a year ago.

    Hi-ho, Kermit the Frog here!
    Alberta got its wish for the inclusion of support for large-scale, industrial carbon capture in the federal budget.

    The federal budget documents released Monday include plans for an investment tax credit for carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) projects. The technology – which forces carbon-dioxide emissions deep into the ground, keeping them out of the atmosphere – could play a major role in lowering outputs at refineries, cement and fertilizer production plants and power stations across the country. Significantly, it could also help to reduce emissions at Alberta oil sands operations.

    Details of the investment tax credit have yet to be fleshed out. Ottawa says it will move quickly to a 90-day consultation period on the design of the credit, after which it will announce more details, including the rate of the incentive.

    Reading the story about the Kentucky rate review. Is KGE and KU both part of PPL ?? I'm not sure but the story shows up in yahoo under PPL.
    It doesn't look like a good deal just off the surface of the article.

    What I don't understand is that when PPL had the UK portion this company was beaten down and treated like garbage and we need to unload it ASAP. All the Brexit negative news and uncertainty hurt the share price. So PPL sells the UK portion. Good news right?! It's what was holding us down. In comes National Grid and buys the UK portion. So what happens? National Grid goes up almost at a 52 week high. PPL? Stuck in the same level of share price hovering at the $28 dollar mark. Stock seems stuck in the mud. Now more uncertainty of the Rhode Island purchase holding it down? Seems like this stock always has some type of uncertainty and doesn't want to move. Yes I am holding for the dividend and hopefully it stands but I would love to see some upward stock momentum. Boring stock or not.

    The 5 percent rule of investing is a general investment philosophy that an individual investor should allocate no more than 5 percent of their portfolio to one investment security. My PPL shares are currently just 1.7% of my portfolio. It used be more than double that amount. I guess the overall stock market has outperformed PPL (since I last checked some time ago). Of course, dividends are not taken into account of the overall return (PPL has been paying out significantly more than the average total stock market). My PPL dividend percentage is 19%.

    Wonder if Wall Street will pick up on electric utilities becoming a growth story or if they will stick with overcapitalized exercise bike companies.

    I like this deal. They shed $14B in debt and bring in $10B in cash. Net debt after deal will $10B. Pay some of that down and refinance duration. Divvy isn’t being cut and they will probably do a buyback. They currently pay $0.33/share in interest per quarter.

    If PPL pays down some of their debt, this should add to their earnings.
