Historical Stock Chart
1 Month : From Sep 2019 to Oct 2019
By Stephen Nakrosis
Shares of PG&E Corp. (PCG) are falling in Wednesday's after-hours session, after a judge opened the door to a rival's chapter 11 plan for the embattled company.
PG&E is also dealing with the impact of having to cut power to around 800,000 businesses and households in California as it tries to reduce the threat of wildfires.
At 5:46 p.m. ET, shares of PG&E had lost 19.22%, to trade at $8.84. Volume in the late session topped 633,000 shares.
The company's shares had finished the day's regular trading session with a 0.73% gain, to close at $10.98.
A bankruptcy judge in California stripped PG&E of the sole right to propose a chapter 11 plan, opening the way for a rival plan backed by bondholders of the utility, including Elliott Management.
