Morningstar | SSE Is Well Positioned to Navigate Through a Challenging Backdrop

SSE’s profits are roughly evenly distributed between regulatory networks and liberalised power generation and energy supply activities. SSE’s wholesale generation unit operates roughly 11 gigawatts. We expect power generation to be the main earnings growth driver in the short and medium term on account of increasing power prices, reinstatement of capacity payments, and the commissioning of new wind and gas capacity. SSE's regulated electric and gas networks operate within a high-quality regulatory regime that allows it to generate value for shareholders. Regulatory risk is still an issue that ...

SSE Is Well Positioned to Navigate Through a Challenging Backdrop

We reiterate our GBX 1,380 fair value estimate and narrow moat, stable trend rating after SSE released its trading statement for the third quarter of its 2019 fiscal year. We view the shares as materially undervalued. SSE lowered its 2018-19 earnings per share guidance from GBX 70-75 to GBX 64-69 versus our GBX 72 estimate. This adjustment is fully due to the suspension of the U.K. capacity payments, ruled by the European Court of Justice in November, whose impact amounts to GBP 60 million. We w...

Etude l' AG du 20/07/2017

Item 2: Approve the Remuneration Report. While quantum is not excessive, the structure of remuneration is unacceptable given the discretion of the committee over half of the bonus, which is determined by qualitative critieria, lack of disclosure of pension accrual rates and excessive pension contribution during the year.  In addition, dividend per share is used with both the STI and the LTI, which is not considered appropriate as executives have a certain level of control over the dividend payout and therefore can influence the level of their incentive pay.   Item 13: Re-appoint the auditors. ...

Analyse court terme - SCOTTISH & SOUTHERN ENERGY PLC : La reprise est une consolidation.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 1 171,00 p prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 1 038,00 p, puis 952,40 p. Le franchissement de 1 239,00 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Short term view - SCOTTISH & SOUTHERN ENERGY PLC : Rising consolidation.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at 1,171.00 p. The next target is at 1,038.00 p, then 952.40 p. Passing 1,239.00 p would question the continuation of the fall.
