  • Valuations for power producers still ignore any rebound in power demand beyond 2012.
     
  • Big fish likely will continue trolling the mergers and acquisitions market for small fish that need cash or an exit strategy.
     
  • First-half demand showed some meager improvements from a dreadful 2009. The third quarter will determine whether demand breaks its two-year slide.
