    DJI only down 0.26% yet WEC down 3.32% as I write. Can find nothing that would indicate this selling. Unreal. Comes 3 trading days after I significantly increased this position. Ugh…!

    Up 3.54% on a good day for the markets, esp considering a brutal September. Very strong volume.

    7 days to ER. WEC has a good history of topping estimates…

    “This electricity and natural gas provider has seen a nice streak of beating earnings estimates, especially when looking at the previous two reports. The average surprise for the last two quarters was 6.12%.
    For the most recent quarter, WEC Energy was expected to post earnings of $1.66 per share, but it reported $1.79 per share instead, representing a surprise of 7.83%. For the previous quarter, the consensus estimate was $0.68 per share, while it actually produced $0.71 per share, a surprise of 4.41%.”

    Still in all, their ERs seldom equate to a corresponding rise in PPS despite good guidance. Not complaining but ‘tis disappointing. Go figure….

    It just "tickles me" to see the short term thinking at these chat boards. Utilities are not a trade-in/trade-out investment. They have always been capital commitment intensive with returns geared toward income versus growth. The best way to "grow" a utility investment is to reinvest their (usually) outsized yields. Drips are the most cost efficient way to do so. I would also advise avoiding utilities in the overly high-regulated locals. Can you say PG&E? Great company, but terrible customer base.

    They announced today (12/6/18) a dividend increase of 3.75 cents per share or 6.8 percent over the current quarterly rate.

    Just read an interesting article in the WI State Journal re the legality of leasing solar power equipment in WI. Apparently the law prevents non-utility companies from providing leased solar equipment, so homeowners are forced to pay for the full system up-front. Even though there's huge demand for solar, most people can't afford the $10K - $20K cost so they do without.

    WHY AREN'T WE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OUR MONOPOLY BY OFFERING LEASED SOLAR SYSTEMS TO HOMEOWNERS? This is easy marginal revenue.

    From 8-K filed last week---

    On March 10, 2021, Tom Metcalfe, President of Wisconsin Electric Power Company, Wisconsin Public Service Corporation and Wisconsin Gas LLC (collectively, the “Utility Subsidiaries”), notified WEC Energy Group that he and his family have made the difficult decision to relocate to Australia for personal reasons. Mr. Metcalfe will remain as President of the Utility Subsidiaries until the end of 2021. Effective January 1, 2022, Mr. Metcalfe will assume an advisory role for several months to help with the transition of his successor, who will be
    named in due course later this year.

    WEC will not collapse - this selling on the wind farm purchase is ill advised in my opinion. This is forward looking leadership. Yes utes have run hard and have been top performers BUT for good reason...yield, cash flow and growth. Boolean

    Other than the banking sector higher interest rates adversely impacts nearly all equities.

    With WEC and other utilities investors seem to fixate on rates. That’s understandable but do rising rates impact earnings on utilities more than other equities? It sure impacts share price more.

    Why is this?

    Last Q good earnings report was offset by interest rate fears and share price continued to drop. The affects of the polar vortex will again boost revenue disproportionately to increased costs and hence earnings will rise,

    Do u think they will again be more than offset by int rate fears? Yellen and fed reserve board state they don’t intend to ease the prime as they want economy to improve.

    All opinions appreciated

    So earnings are good. Dividend is up on quarter. So let's sell. What? As usual market makes no sense.

    Ahhh. Very good Q3 and YTD. Guidance also good. Frequently there is an adverse relationship between utilities and DJI. Not today! WEC outperforming an up market.

    November 10 2020 the price was 106$. Now 87? Dividend up and no significant change in customer base, management, or revenue. This is why when investment experts tell me to put more money in the market I laugh.
    I guess the stock market has always been a joke, but as I get older I have trouble advising my grandchildren to participate.

    Upon a closer review of the 10-K, this company has four headquarters (if you count the posh offices overlooking Lake Michigan), three power plants that will be idled, a ton of share-based compensation and a high level of non-utility expenses. When is the next utility rate case?? Hopefully the PSCW is gearing up!!
