UPDATE: Jefferies Reiterates On PG&E As All Equity Is Not Created Equal
In a report published Wednesday, Jefferies analyst Paul B. Fremont reiterated a Buy rating on PG&E (NYSE: PCG), and raised the price target from $51.00 to $53.00.
In the report, Jefferies noted, “The cash contribution of deferred taxes will significantly reduce the need for PG&E to raise equity. The lower share count is expected to increase the earnings power of the company making PG&E attractive on a valuation basis. Jefferies believes there may be further earnings upside associated with PG&E's cap structure and potential earnings on CWIP.”
PG&E closed on Tuesday at $47.23.
