Mario Gabelli Comments on NextEra Energy Inc.

Guru stock highlight

February 04, 2019 | About:
NextEra Energy Inc. (NYSE:NEE) (5.4%) (NEE – $173.82 – NYSE) is the holding company for Florida Power & Light (FP&L), the largest electric utility in Florida, and NextEra Energy Resources, a leading wholesale renewables operator. Florida Power & Light operates one of the premier utility franchises in the nation, with favorable long term demographics and above average rate base growth potential due to power plant rate adjustments, flexible amortization, and other regulatory mechanisms. In late 2016, FP&L implemented a four year rate plan (2017-2020) based on a 10.6% (+/- 100 basis points) allowed-ROE. Additionally, NER owns and operates the nation’s largest renewable power portfolio, with a significant pipeline of future growth opportunities, and owns 65% of the NextEra Energy Partners (0.1%), a yieldco focused on renewable development and acquisitions. NEE also owns and is developing gas pipeline projects designed to bring more natural gas into Florida. We regard NEE as one of the better positioned electric companies to grow earnings and dividends over the next several years.
