Edison International Stock Performance from 2014 to Present

volunteers-yellow-747x420

Edison International (NYSE: EIX) , based in Rosemead, CA is one of the leading experts in clean energy and clean energy solutions. First incorporated in 1909 as the Southern California Edison Company, they have since grown to employ over 12,500 employees, and garner an annual revenue of $12.6 Billion USD.

In November of 2010, Edison Electric sold its 48% stake in the Four Corners coal-fired power plant in New Mexico for $294 Million. The move was the result of a California law forcing corporations to move away from coal-fired production, and into more energy efficient solutions. Forcing Edison Electric to purchase more power from the market.

Renewable Energy

Since beginning its focus on renewable energy in 1980, at least 21% of the fuel Edison Electric uses comes from clean energy sources. The company has heavily invested in clean energy solutions such as nuclear, biomass, and even wind power. With at least half of their clean energy production being from nuclear power.

Pedro J. Pizarro took the helm of Edison International as President of SCE in 2014, and has been acting CEO since Oct. 2016. The stock value of the company since then has had a rocky ride. But ultimately has shown a positive climb from 2014-present.

Edison International Stock Performance

In August of 2014, the stocks value of Edison International had reached $59,49 USD per share. But by the end of 2014, they would report a rise in stock value to $67,54 USD per share.

The stock value of the company would continue to steadily rise for the next 3 years, until reaching its peak at $82,18 USD per share as of June 2017.

By the beginning of Nov. 2018 Edison reported a stock value of $67,88 per share, but over the course of several weeks plummeted by up to 25%. This massive hit to the stock value was due to the California Wildfires that ravaged their territories in the region. Ultimately the stock value recovered slightly over the course of the following days, settling at just a 12% loss.

In Feb. 2019, Edison International (NYSE: EIX) reported a 2018 fourth quarter loss of $1.4 Billion USD net loss, (a loss of $4.39 USD per share). Compare this to their $545 Million USD net loss, ($.67 USD loss per share) in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Jul. 25 2019 Edison International (NYSE: EIX), reported a second quarter 2019 net income of $392 Million USD, ($1.20 USD per share increase). Compare this to their $274 million USD increase ($0.85 per share increase) in the second quarter of 2018.

As of Aug. 21st 2019, Edison International stock value has reported in at around $72,31 USD per share. A slow but very stable and steady increase since the plummet in November of 2018.

Conclusion

The Edison Company of Southern California provides energy for 15 Million people, across 50,000 square miles of coastal, southern and central California, They have shown themselves to be a titan in the clean energy solutions market, and have reported relatively steady stock value increase over the last 5 years under CEO Pizarro. They are poised to continue this upward trend moving forward.

Oil Prices Could Move Higher to $45 or $60 a Barrel

oilprices

With the demand for oil continuing to increase every year from 1 to 2 percent, the price is destined to rebound higher within the next couple of years. Supply has fallen due to a lack of new production with the current price suppressed. We have seen trading around $30 with prices moving around a little bit, a general trend upward over the past 3 months. This price increase has been noticed at retail gasoline stations across the country.

Some view a yearly target of $45/barrel as being reasonable with a two to three year target of $60.

There are a couple of caveats to the price discussion. Derivatives are largely responsible for the price of the commodity. So supply and demand are often obscured from the current prices by these trading instruments. And their price is more volatile than a straight commodity traded on an exchange would be. A world event could cause the price to fall or jump quickly.

China Growth And Oil Trading Fears

Fear of China Growth Crush Oil & Commodities

US oil prices remained on their downhill slide Monday. In the U.S. a barrel of crude hit a 52-week low coming in at $47.20 a barrel. This launched investors into reeling and reacting to China's largest 1-day stock sell-off since 2007. Worries over an oil glut continued to gain momentum as the fears of economic slowdown in China swept the world.

Today China is the world's second-largest economy. It is, however, no longer growing at its old double-digit pace like it was only a few short years ago. This is causing investors worldwide to question its reported 7% growth during the second quarter, and to wonder if that figure truly reflects China's economy to date.

Cushing US Report Pushes Oil Lower

CushingCrudeOil

A report from Cushing Oklahoma showed slow growth in oil demand while the glut of oil supply remained high. The EIA (Energy Information Assoc.) reported that crude supply decreased but that Cushing showed a large build up at the same time. This created a bearish tone in trading and oil stocks declined along with the price of oil in open trading. Also noted was a small increase in the demand for gasoline which spooked traders.

Panic Hits the Russian Ruble

banknote-1000-rubles--1997--front

The Russian Central Bank raised interest rates to 17% overnight hoping to stem the fall of the Russian Ruble as the country’s main source of revenue, oil, dropped in price at historic rates. A glut in oil production has created a supply abundance worldwide. Since a debt default in 1998, the Russian economy has not been hit so hard. Interest rates were already high at 10.5% before the move that did not have the affect on the currency the central bank had hoped for. The currency remained soft in trading today. Interest rates were raised to encourage holders to keep their cash for additional future increases.
