Hold-Rated Dividend Stocks In The Top 5: HME, TE, BMO, CM, PM

TECO Energy

Dividend Yield: 5.20%

TECO Energy (NYSE:TE) shares currently have a dividend yield of 5.20%.

TECO Energy, Inc., an electric and gas utility holding company, engages in the regulated electric and gas utility operations. The company has a P/E ratio of 15.92.

The average volume for TECO Energy has been 2,105,400 shares per day over the past 30 days. TECO Energy has a market cap of $3.7 billion and is part of the utilities industry. Shares are up 1.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates TECO Energy as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 59.38% to $129.90 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, TECO ENERGY INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 4.87%.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 2.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.2%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed against the S&P 500 and did not exceed that of the Multi-Utilities industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 29.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $73.10 million to $51.40 million.
  • The gross profit margin for TECO ENERGY INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 27.64%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 6.98% trails that of the industry average.
