Executive Summary

Bet on Utilities for Big Trends

By Roger S. Conrad on Sep. 8, 2020

Want to invest in transforming developments like renewable energy, 5-G, smart cities and electric vehicle adoption?

You could roll the dice and bet Tesla Inc (NSDQ: TSLA) adds to gains that once approached 500 percent year-to-date. Or you could jump on the companies in the feature article, for compelling yields and far more reliable growth.

More than two-thirds of new power generation capacity installed worldwide this year was wind and solar. And in the US, most was either long-term contracted or entered utilities’ regulated rate base. In fact, all of the world’s leading developers of renewable energy now are utilities, led by America’s top wind and solar producer NextEra Energy (NYSE: NEE).

You could speculate on which car company will sell the most EVs. Or you could lock in growth from EV adoption with Edison International (NYSE: EIX). Last month, the California utility won regulators’ approval for the largest build of EV charging stations and energy storage in US history. And while Tesla sells for 17 times annual sales that shrank -5 percent this year, Edison sells for just 11.2 times earnings and pays a yield of nearly 5 percent.
