  • Wells Fargo Upgrades Portland General Electric Company to "Outperform" (POR)

    Early on Thursday, analysts at Wells Fargo upgraded Portland General Electric Company (POR) , as shares of the utility company currently trade at a discount. The analysts upgraded POR from "Market Perform" to "Outperform" and see shares reaching a range of $30.50-$31.50, up from the previous target range of $30-$31. This new price target range suggests a 7%-11% upside to the stock's Wednesday closing price of $28.38. Wells Fargo analyst Sarah Akers said, "Our rating change is prompted by recent weakness (down 8% relative to S&P Utilities over the last 3 months) leading shares to trade at 9-10% discounts relative to peers on our 2014E and 2015E EPS. We consider the discounts to be excessive, particularly in light of POR’s above-average rate base growth opportunities. Separately, we are lowering our 2013E EPS to $1.25 from $1.38 reflecting a better understanding of POR’s power cost assumptions including the recent Coyote Springs outage. Importantly, our 2014E remains $2.10. The midpoint of our 12-18 month valuation range of $30.50-31.50 (up from $30-31) implies 13% total return potential including the 3.9% dividend yield." Portland General Electric shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Thursday. The stock is up 3.73% year-to-date.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Portland General Electric Co. (POR) offer a dividend yield of 3.88% based on Wednesday's closing price of $28.38 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.10 per share.
