12:39 EDTEIXWells identifies NextEra, Sempra as among favorite utility names
Utilities as a group have dropped in recent months and there are several names in the sector that offer relative value and exposure to secular growth trends, Wells Fargo stated in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: The utilities sector is trading at a forward multiple that is 93% of the S&P 500, versus the ten year average of 102%, according to Wells. Moreover, utilities are "slightly cheap" relative to interest rates, the firm thinks. NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sempra Energy (SRE) have the best growth opportunities in the utility space, according to Wells. They also have proven management teams and are well-positioned to exploit long-term trends, including renewable energy and energy infrastructure, the firm believes. ITC Holdings (ITC) has reached an attractive entry point and, to a degree, offers a near-term hedge against an interest rate increase, according to the firm. Edison International (EIX) and Xcel Energy (XEL) are underappreciated regulated utilities, added Wells. Edison trades in-line with its peers despite superior EPS growth potential and Xcel trades at a 3%-6% discount to the sector despite its at least in-line EPS growth and comparable regulatory risk, which might ease, the firm added. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, NextEra rose 0.5%, Sempra gained 0.6%, Edison added 0.6%, Xcel climbed 0.4% and ITC was little changed.

12:54 EDTEIXDuke, Edison, other utilities could return 8% annually, Barron's says
Shares of Duke Energy (DUK), Southern Company (SO), Consolidated Edison (ED), Edison International (EIX), PG&E (PCG), American Electric (AEP), Dominion (D), and NextEra Energy (NEE) could return 8% or more annually in coming years, Barron's contends in a feature article. Though utilities are sometimes seen as no-growth businesses, Barron's argues that infrastructure replacement projects, rate hikes, and dividend boosts make the sector look attractive. Reference Link
