Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

NRG's transformation in 2017-20 cut the business in half, improved its credit metrics, and generated substantial cash to use for the dividend, stock buybacks, and acquisitions like Direct Energy and Vivint.

Bears

Federal and state environmental regulations and renewable energy goals could erode profitability at NRG's fossil-fuel power plants.
