Eversource Energy Beats Earnings Expectations and Attracts Institutional Investors
Eversource Energy, a company engaged in the generation, transmission, and distribution of natural gas and electricity, has recently been subject to a number of buying and selling activities involving institutional investors. Among these investors are Mitsubishi UFJ Trust & Banking Corp, which increased its position in shares of Eversource Energy by more than a quarter during the fourth quarter; Bahl & Gaynor Inc., which grew its position in shares of the utilities provider’s stock by 8.4% during the same period; CI Investments Inc., which increased its stake by over 100%; New Hampshire Trust, which purchased a new stake worth approximately $27,000; and FDx Advisors Inc., which lifted its stake by 24.6% in the fourth quarter. A combined total of 77.37% of Eversource Energy’s stock is owned by institutional investors and hedge funds.
Commenting on Eversource Energy’s performance, several brokerages have given their ratings for the company’s stocks. Guggenheim reiterated a “buy” rating on ES shares in March 2017 while eight analysts gave a “hold” rating and three analysts assigned it “buy”. According to Bloomberg.com, consensus reflects a “Hold” rating with an average target price per share of $87.58.
As published on May 3rd by financial media outlets like Yahoo Finance and Wall Street Journal Market Watch, Eversource Energy released quarterly earnings results reporting that it had beaten expectations once again – with adjusted earnings per share of $1.41 versus analyst estimates of $1.34 per share – highlighting that this was another positive report to their first-quarter fiscal year ending March30th since income growth rates tends to significantly impact firm valuations.
This will mean more cash inflows for investors from record earning revenues despite expanding costs expenses including one-time charges for storm task force efforts and normal bad debts from consumer electric billing cycles, This allows for more stable returns, especially as the company also recently declared a quarterly dividend of $0.675, which will be paid on June 30th to investors of record as of May 18th. Eversource Energy’s 3.69% dividend yield should therefore also help compensate for market performance and risk pointing towards stable cash flows.
Despite some recent rating downgrades by Citigroup and Wolfe Research, Eversource Energy remains optimistic about its growth potential based on their strong fundamentals. With positive earnings per share reports and news about growing institutional investments being publicized, shareholders can have confidence that the energy provider is on target for future success.
