Utilities: Staying Strong on the Inside for Big Returns on the Outside

By Roger S. Conrad on May. 10, 2021

What a difference a few months makes in a momentum driven stock market! Earlier this year, it was our renewable energy stocks benefitting from frenzied buying of anything investors deemed to be “green,” with prices reaching generous profit-taking levels.

Now it’s our oil and gas pipeline stocks that investors can’t get enough of. And in contrast, Conservative Focus stock Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE: BEP) and Aggressive Focus stock Atlantica Yield (NSDQ: AY) are trading at positively attractive valuations. Even best in class wind and solar company NextEra Energy (NYSE: NEE) is in buying territory.

If you’ve been investing with me long enough, you know that swings like these are par for the course. The moves have definitely become more dramatic the longer this bull market of 12 years plus has lasted. But the game is still the same.
