European Utilities Edged Up in Q2 on Soaring Power Prices, High Interest Rates Still a Drag

Utilities have reversed part of their first quarter’s fall, thanks to a strong rebound in power prices. Moreover, the deep undervaluation of renewables developers has driven takeovers by big investment firms at very high multiples. Neoen’s main shareholders accepted an offer at 18 times the EBITDA. The sector is still significantly lagging the market in 2024 because of high interest rates. Should they fall, it would boost the sector.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Having shifted its targets from net income to EPS, the group could finally concede to do share buy backs.

Bears

Electricity demand destruction from the accelerated deindustrialization of Europe could herald a long period of depressed power prices and clean spark spreads, similar to 2009-2016.
