"On Thursday the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) issued her recommendationin Oklahoma Gas & Electric's (OG&E) 2011 electric rate case," Jefferies analysts wrote in a June 4 report. "The recommendation was predicated on a 10.75% ROE and a 53.07% equity ratio. The ALJ has requested that OG&E submit a revenue requirement that incorporates each of her adjustments and recommendations. Jefferies analysis of the ALJ recommendation forecasts a $40 million revenue increase. Jefferies is currently assuming that the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) final order will be close to the $24 million interim increase filed by the company in May and we are basing our estimate changes on this assumed level of increase."
