The utility company reported on May 4 a first-quarter loss of $403 million, or $1.66 a share, a reversal from year-earlier earnings of $74 million, or 29 cents a share.

"Uncertainty related to merchant generation's outlook continues to cloud what is otherwise an attractive (and improving) regulated rate base growth story, in our view," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a May 4 report. "No change to our 2012-14E EPS of $2.30, $1.75, and $2.00. Our rating remains Market Perform with a 12-18 month valuation range of $32-33 per share."
