PG&E

Dividend Yield: 4.50%

PG&E (NYSE: PCG) shares currently have a dividend yield of 4.50%.

PG&E Corporation, through its subsidiary, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (Utility), transmits, delivers, and sells electricity and natural gas to customers primarily in northern and central California. The Utility provides services to approximately 15 million people. The company has a P/E ratio of 25.03.

The average volume for PG&E has been 2,710,000 shares per day over the past 30 days. PG&E has a market cap of $18.1 billion and is part of the utilities industry. Shares are up 0.6% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates PG&E as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • PCG's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 0.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.0%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $1,374.00 million or 7.51% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, PG&E CORP's cash flow growth rate is still lower than the industry average growth rate of 26.84%.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Multi-Utilities industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 54.9% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $364.00 million to $164.00 million.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Multi-Utilities industry and the overall market, PG&E CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
