  • Jefferies Upgrades FirstEnergy Corp. to "Hold" (FE)

    Due to FirstEnergy Corp.'s (FE) current valuation, analysts at Jefferies upgraded the utility and energy company on Tuesday. The analysts upgraded FE from "Underperform" to "Hold" and now see shares reaching $36.50, up from the previous target of $33.50. This new price target is about in line with the stock's Monday closing price of $36.45. "The stock has underperformed the UTY by 11.8% since we downgraded the stock in January," Jefferies analyst Paul B. Fremont said. "Moody's concerns regarding FE competitive businesses have been resolved with the company raising $1.5 billion in proceeds from the Harrison asset transfer proceeding and the sale of hydro assets." FirstEnergy shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is down 12.72% year-to-date.

  • Wells Fargo Downgrades FirstEnergy to "Market Perform" (FE)

    On Wednesday, Wells Fargo analysts downgraded utility company FirstEnergy Corp. (FE) , saying that they are not overly optimistic on power markets. The analysts downgraded FE from "Outperform" to "Market Perform" and now see shares hitting a price target range of $38 to $39, down from the previous view of $40 to $42. The new target range suggests a slight upside to the stock's Tuesday closing price of $38.01. "Based on recent power market data points – forward energy prices, PJM capacity auction results and retail marketing trends – we are growing increasingly concerned that FE's competitive energy operations have limited value. While we view management’s recent strategic maneuvers favorably and believe the current share price can be justified by the regulated businesses, we are less enthusiastic about the upside optionality in the competitive businesses," said analyst Neil Kalton. FirstEnergy shares were down 12 cents, or 0.32%, during morning trading on Wednesday. The stock is down 9.12% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of FirstEnergy (FE) offer a dividend yield of 5.81% based on Wednesday's intraday trading price of $37.87 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $2.20 per share. FirstEnergy Corp. (FE) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
