KEP is an undervalued company. It's in a relatively safe market, in a growing economy, and in a monopolistic position. Yesterday's absurd price decline due to the North Korea and South Korea tensions make this baby a favorite of mine because it was beaten down even more irrationally... Some say the North Korean leader is irrational, but so are the people who sold this stock yesterday over it.

One day North Korea will be in the market for a lot of power, KEP will be in the best position to supply it. This day may be far in the future but hey, lets beat the rush!

Not that cool, but with a P/E of 11, it's well enough to beat the S&P500 wich includes a bunch of possibly overvalued companies such as Amazon, Google, Apple and many more.

The trailing P/E is only 12.3, the price to net tangible assets is cheap at 0.69, and the Enterprise value to revenue ratio is well below the industry at 1.67. Of the U.S. majors, FPL is the cheapest based on EV/rev at 2.3. KEP price would need to rise 70% to match this EV/rev. KEP also continues to grow.

Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEP) founded in 1961, is in the business of generation and transmission of electricity. It is South Korea’s only electricity provider, having an installed generation capacity of around 55,000 megawatts. The company has around 370 generation units that include nuclear, thermal, hydro and internal combustion based plants. KEP caters to a wide range of consumers that includes commercial, residential, educational and agricultural users. The industrial users provide for about half the over all revenues, while residential and commercial users contribute 20% and 22% respectively.

The South Korean power industry is slowly moving to deregulation however it is still largely government regulated. The per capita consumption in the country has seen a major heave by over six times from its 1980’s level, and the future of the industry also looks appealing as the consumption is still much lower than other developing countries, thus providing a huge potential. The demand is expected to rise by 4% - 6% year on year till 2010. The industry is largely impacted by volatile fuel and other input prices, and as imported petroleum is the most significant energy source, the fluctuations in Korean Won and US Dollar also has a significant impact.

KEP has a strong monopoly in the transmission and distribution business. However, the regulated pricing environment is bringing pressure on the margins, and thus the stock has a poor record of generating returns below the benchmark level. Further, the company is unable to transfer the rising cost of production to the ultimate consumers due to regulation, which is further hampering the growth, though it has got some modest respite, as being permitted to charge industrial consumer a marginal higher prices. Adding to it, the huge capital spending and the poor return on capital, makes it a risky stock.

KEP is in negotiations with the South Korean government to let it become privatized. KEP is is winning contracts left and right from Chinese governemt to develop China's spotty electricity grids just in time for the 2008 summer games. KEP is also developing China's nuclear power plants. On the domestic front, demand for electricity in South Korea will grow from 3-5% over the next 20 years. KEP like the the steel powerhouse POSCO (PKX) is also in a great position to take advantage of a post KIM JONG IL North Korea.
