Top 10 Medical Stocks For 2021

PG&E Corp.’s equipment was responsible for causing four of the wildfires that tore through Northern California in October, investigators from the state’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection determined in a report Friday.

The fires in Butte and Nevada counties were caused by trees or branches coming into contact with PG&E power lines, according to a statement citing results of the first investigations into the fires last year. The causes of the larger wine country fires, including the Tubbs Fire, weren’t disclosed.

The investor-owned utility owner has lost more than $12 billion in market value since the wildfires broke out. It suspended its dividend and withheld its 2018 profit guidance because of uncertainty about how much it might have to pay for damages. The fires in Napa and Sonoma counties were some of the worst in state history, destroying thousands of structures and killed 44 people.

Under California law, utilities can be held liable for costs if their equipment is found to have caused a fire — even if they followed safety rules — based on a legal principle known as “inverse condemnation.” PG&E Chief Executive Officer Geisha Williams has called the policy “deeply flawed.” The company, along with California’s other investor-owned utilities, has been lobbying the state’s lawmakers and regulators to change it.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Electric and gas utilities: Investors have several options when it comes to investing in electric and natural gas distribution infrastructure, since there are dozens of publicly traded companies that own these crucial assets. Some companies focus on owning and operating electric-generating facilities such as hydroelectric dams or wind farms. Others not only own those assets, but also the transmission infrastructure needed to get the power from plants to homes and businesses. Meanwhile, some utilities focus on owning natural gas distribution systems, while others operate across the entire spectrum. Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) is one of the largest electric and gas utilities in the country, serving nearly 7.5 million customers in 18 states as of 2018.

    It starts in 2007 when the Oracle of Omaha began purchasing shares of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP). By the end of 2007, Buffett had spent just over $1 billion.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.
