Florida is Duke's most constructive and attractive jurisdiction, with higher-than-average load growth and best-in-class regulation that allows for higher-than-average returns on equity, forward-looking rates, and automatic base-rate adjustments. The utility is installing 300 megawatts of solar annually with additional infrastructure investment opportunities.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Duke's regulated utilities provide a stable source of earnings. The company's large capital expenditure plan should drive rate base and earnings growth for the next several years. We think Duke can achieve the high end of management's 5%-7% earnings growth target.

Bears

Equity issuances and capital investment delays have hurt management's relationships with key stakeholders.
