+ Watch TE
on My Watchlist
A holding company for regulated utilities and other unregulated businesses.
Sold TE. No dividend growth. Could not keep pace with S&P 500.
First, there was no dividend increase this year - not even a duped minimum one. In addition, there was the NMG aquisition, where I fail to see any remarkable future growth prospects as well es any synergies. Nobody really wants to die and much less live there. On top of this, there is the rather less timied - or up to ones taste more foolhary approach to finance the deal, which eventually may require a dividend cut.

I think this is a good utility...still cheap and great dividend
Good dividend at 4.9% and at a solid floor. The cycle is due to come back up. Meanwhile they are positioning themselves to use abundant biomass (as is Alliant) as a very cost effective means of reducing carbon emissions. (see http://www.treepower.org/faq/air.html) This head start will become more meaningful as some sort of carbon cap/trade or tax gets implemented (as one surely will be over the next several years). On the downside: they are playing around with coal to liquid syngas in their coal side of the business. This is a dead end that may promote energy independence but does so at the expense of greenhouse gas increases. Fed support of it is pandering that will eventually die. Better to press for the Feds to heavily promote PHEVs which would significantly reduce greenhouse gases while still promoting energy independence/national security.Even more clever than biomass cofiring, btw, is NRG's playing around with algae bioreactors, sequestering CO2 in oil-rich algae at the stack and processing it into useful products including biofuels.Compared to other means of carbon reduction in existing coal-fired plants (the bulk of US energy production), like sequestration and pumping into old oil fields or under the ocean floor, these methods are simple, effective, elegant, and cheap.A good one to buy now and check on it in five years.
Every indication is that this company is better than its performance has tracked.
