Risk | by Andrew Bischof Updated May 14, 2018
The utilities segments still face regulatory risk, as demonstrated in their less-than-perfect outcomes in the 2012 and 2016 rate cases. But the California Public Utilities Commission is a relatively constructive partner compared with many of Sempra's peers in other states. The utilities' pending 2019 general rate case will be a near-term indicator of the state regulatory environment under California's RAMP program, which focuses on risk mitigation across the utilities' footprint.
Sempra's biggest risks at the nonregulated businesses come from executing its capital-intensive projects within original budgets and shifting gas flows in the U.S. that could disadvantage the company's infrastructure assets. Its Gilder, thank you very much for the find.
Latin American businesses face potential currency, regulatory, and geopolitical instability.
Also, the jury is still out on incremental LNG opportunities in North America, although the progress being made to construct the Cameron export facility will deliver strong returns. The most significant assumption that we make in our forecast is the successful timely construction of the Cameron LNG export terminal. We don't incorporate any value for potential incremental sites at Costa Azul or Port Arthur, which could bring material upside to our fair value estimate as well.
It gives a 3 Star. At this time, very few shares have been sold. Higher yield than the A convertible share, but the conversion is obviously less favorable. Still a decent play. Thanks for the post, Gilder. FIDO analysts gave very bearish. Schwab rated SRE common as C. I live in Orange County, CA in Edison service region. It seems that we do not have the problems like the P and G utilities in Northern CA. This seems to me an attractive new issue.
Schwab is NOT ready. Sold my SWAN taking some profit for a change, AGO-B and picked up 50 shares at $101 at Vanguard brokerage. More volume now, seems to be climbing.still only 417,000 shares on FIDO Active Trade PRO.
I live in Orange County, CA in the Edison service area. Sempra in San Diego. We do not have the problems of PG and E of Northern CA to my best knowledge.
