Exelon moving to Nasdaq, out of NYSE
Sep. 13, 2019 5:25 PM ET|About: Exelon Corporation (EXC)|By: Carl Surran, SA News Editor
Exelon (NYSE:EXC) says it is transferring its stock listing from the NYSE to Nasdaq, where its shares will begin trading at the market open on Sept. 25.

EXC touts Nasdaq as the platform of choice for many companies that share "our commitment to a low-carbon economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions."

The NYSE had been EXC's listing partner for the past 18 years; the company will retain its EXC ticker symbol on Nasdaq.

Exelon (EXC +1.9%) is on the verge of a tentative agreement with the mayor of Washington, D.C., on its $6.8B proposal to buy Pepco (POM +1.3%), Bloomberg reported over the weekend.

The draft agreement is said to include more customer credits than EXC and POM initially proposed, and would require EXC to establish a second headquarters in D.C., where POM already is based.

An agreement with the mayor’s office would mark a step forward in EXC’s attempt to resurrect its bid for POM after the D.C. Public Service Commission rejected the deal in August, saying the terms would not benefit customers.

Well, EXC cut it's dividend recently and it brought the share price down. Right now, I'm down $4.00 on 6,100 shares. So much for a safe dividend investment!

Got their Annual Report and proxy statement. The recent huge trimming in the dividend rate AND decline in share price gave me no other choices but to vote AGAINST all directors and AGAINST any executive compensation plans.

Too bad the shareholder meeting is not in Chicago this year, as I know many retirees and shareholders would attend and show their displeasures.

Let's hope the new dividend is 'SAFE' for this year and perhaps EXC can move the dividend rate up next year.

Another post that the Yahoo board would not allow.



EXC is/was poorly positioned for this cycle. They are a major energy generator at a time when the price of energy is plummeting due to the economic downturn and deregulation. The delivery business has been mired in regulatory issues associated with cost recovery for grid modernization. However, some of EXC's competitors are in worse shape and the washout of these competitors will eventually put a floor in on energy generation prices.

In the past 2 weeks Edison Mission Energy and Ameren have decided to throw in the towel on their power generation businesses in Illinois. The question is whether there are any assets worth picking up at these distressed prices. The Midwest generation facilities are coal fired and were previously owned by Com Ed so it is a pretty sure bet that EXC has no interest in these facilities. Reportedly some of the Ameren divestment includes nat gas fired facilities, so there may be some interest in these facilities.

More importantly the washout of weaker hands is likely to mark the bottom of this cycle. These companies have determined that they are no longer willing to sustain losses on these facilities.

ICC Decision
For Some Reason Yahoo will not allow me to post. So I'll post here.

Today's Chicago trib indicated that Com Ed received unanimous ICC approval to delay the roll out of smart meters until 2015. Starting in Jan 2013 Com Ed will begin collecting the grid modernization surcharge equivalent to about $1.48 per average bill of $82.

I guess that even the ICC realized it was unfair to remove $2.6 billion of upfront grid modernization money and still expect EXC to proceed with the modernization effort on schedule. The delay will let EXC accrue funds to proceed with the modernization effort.

I wonder to what extent the dividend cut cut posturing by EXC has helped convince the ICC to change direction. Either way, the EXC div just got a little safer.

I feel that EXC is due for a rebound for the following reasons:

1) 5200 MW of Power production capacity appears poised to come out of the Chicago market as Midwest generation is in default of their bond payments (see link below) and is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. Because coal is at an economic disadvantage due to pricing it is unlikely that any other producers will step in and make the $700 million in improvements necessary to comply with the Clean Air Act. Over capacity in the Midwest power generation market has been the chief thorn in EXC's side.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/20/idUSWNA980120121120

2) Nat gas prices are now at $3.90 mmBTU and have doubled since earlier this year. The nat gas rig count has dropped precipitously as drillers are now pursuing oil rather than nat gas. I believe the nat gas producers are looking for prices to stabilize in the $4-$5 area. A couple of months ago the Cleveland Plain Dealer indicated that First Energy and Dominion were pricing 2013 power generation $5.50 MWhr reflecting the uncertainty in nat gas pricing. I believe the pricing is approaching the threshold where EXC's nuclear plants are competitive, especially if weaker players like Midwest Generation exit the market.

3) EXC's share price appears to be finding support at $28 which is approximately a 76% retracement from the $90 highs achieved in early 2008. I would not be surprised to see a retest of this Fibonacci support level. I would view such a dip as an opportunity to buy. I have filled out most of the position I desire in the past week.

4) The Obama administration is likely to make carbon tax and global warming a part of the agenda. Thus Coal burning plants are unlikely to get significant relief from the Clean Air Act and USEPA enforcement.

Illinois has allowed municipalities to seek bids from power suppliers. EXC has lost power generation contracts for many of the Chicago suburbs. Some of this is a result of some of their hedging strategies. Reportedly, many of these hedges expire in 2013 allowing EXC to price contracts more aggressively and profitably. As indicated previously, the competition which relies on nat gas generation capacity will likely increase rates for the rebids since the feedstock prices are increasing. Chicago is reportedly bidding the City's contract before year end. I think they missed the boat and will not see as sizeable a decrease in power supply rates as was gained by the suburbs. More importantly, I suspect that EXC will win this contract and it will put a solid floor in under the EXC share price (at least I have invested accordingly). It is important to recognize that the Chicago market is large and their are few companies with sufficient available capacity to reliably serve this market. Thus, EXC is well situated for this bid.

The dividend may be trimmed however, EXC has less debt than most other elec utilities making it likely that they can maintain the dividend longer than most.

Todays Chi Tribune indicates that the Emanuel administration has brokered a deal to shut down the 2 remaining coal burning power plants located in Chicago. The Fisk plant will close by the end of this year, the Crawford plant by the end of 2014. Midwest indicated that based on the current market conditions,the Waukegan and Joliet plants are unlikely to be upgraded and would likely close before the end of 2014. The State Line plant in Hammond has already closed. This looks to be a substantial slice of the coal burning plant competition that EXC has faced in the Chicago area.

It looks like the cheap nat gas generated electricity is taking a big bite out of the economics of coal burning to generate electricity. They simply cannot justify the air emission upgrade costs when the competition from low price nat gas plants is so fierce.

I bought a small stake in EXC this morning. I'm figuring that the elimination of coal burning plants combined with Congresses elimination of the wind generation tax credits last week will eliminate or at least slow competing cheap power sources and start to stabilize the market.

The nat gas producers (See CHK) are starting to curb output in order to stabilize prices. These factors could lead to power pricing improvements.

On the distribution side, I'm hopeful that EXC can execute the grid improvements efficiently (the IL general Assembly approved rate hikes to modernize the Illinois grid in December)so that should help EXC distribution profitability or at least reduce the drag of having to maintain the grid.

Nat gas pricing is the key and I can't believe it can go much lower from here.

UP UP AND AWAY.

gotta love the protection of a fat dividend, and a fslr kicker in a month or so when they pay 75,000,000 to exc.

First Solar would have to refund Exelon's $75 million.

i expect that to be returned to share holders as a special dividend.

this story just gets better and better.

EXC below $40 is a great buy.

I like this for a six month trade: One could buy 100 shares for $3,984 and write a JUL 42 call for 45¢ bringing the effective price for 100 shares down to $3,939. Add to that the May dividend of .525 and the basis on the trade is down to $3,886.50. Should EXC trade above $42 by expiration, the 100 shares get called for $4,200 giving the trade an annualized yield of a little over 16%... Not too shabby.

Should EXC languish below $42 by expiration, you keep the premium and have added 100 shares in a stock you want to own anyway at a cost of $39.39 per share. That produces an effective yield of 5.33% on those particular shares.

Those numbers are based on Friday's close and a trade like this is best done in a non-tax account.

Can't understand why this Dividend Paying Darling has dropped in price.

People need electric and gas and water. Nice dividend of $2.10 per share on a share price under $40 right now for a yield of 5.27%

We have a lot of shares in EXC and talked with our financial advisor at Edward Jones. Asked if we should lighten up. His response is to hold on to what we have and suggested we add more if the opportunity arises.

Can't beat the yield and dividend amount without taking a lot of risk.

The carnage continues, although nothing fundamental has changed with EXC.

I was short MAR 43 calls which I had sold just before the earthquake, so I'll get some cash out that way anyway.

Once the Japan nukes stabilize, I'll put some more money in EXC and lock in yield north of 5% again.

Looks like EXC is going to be unfairly clobbered at the open today.

I'm going to take it as a good opportunity to buy some ITM calls for next January... After the Japanese story settles down.

Well I have had them since before the split and sold off near the high when the market was crashing and doubled up again when it hit rock bottom....I'm hoping they will decide to split again when it goes through the 60's again...I already have 4 times the original amount of shares I started with all for the the same original investment not to mention the divi's that keep rolling in....

I was wondering why Excelon felt the need to issue new debt, but I guess the terms were irresistable.ComEd will use the net proceeds from the sale of the bonds as an interim source of liquidity for a planned January 2011 contribution to Exelon-sponsored pension plans in which ComEd participates. ComEd anticipates receiving tax refunds as a result of both the pension contribution and recent federal tax legislation allowing for accelerated depreciation deductions in 2011 and 2012. As a result, the immediate and direct use of the net proceeds to fund the planned contribution will allow those future cash receipts to be available to ComEd to fund capital investment and for general corporate purposes.At 1.625% it looks like they are actually able fulfill obligations while making money off the government.

The stock market certainly seems to like it.

Jeffries upgardes EXC to "BUY".

http://www.streetinsider.com/Upgrades/Jefferies+Upgrades+Exelon+(EXC)+to+Buy,+Price+Target+$44/6158144.html

"Attractive yield" at 5.3%. These guys are really on the ball.

Maybe this will help break the ice for Goldman's and UBS.

Out of all the stocks I own, EXC remains the worst dog in my portfolio.

And it just makes no sense at all whatsoever.

I've got some CDs paying around 5% which are going to expire early next year. I'm hoping EXC can stay below $40 until then.

Even though it pays better than 5% at this price, I think a lot people were hoping the divvy would get raised. EXC has a lot of cash on hand.

Any share bought below $45 is a real deal.
