February 12, 2021

12:00-12:45 p.m.
Web Conference

This free WPUI members-only program will feature
Steve Kihm.
Steve is a knowledgeable and engaging speaker and educator, a researcher, consultant and analyst with extensive experience in corporate finance and strategy, focusing on stock valuation and disruptive competition.

There is a lot of talk about risk in utility markets, such as that associated with non-existent load growth and the possibility of premature closure of fossil fuel plants. However, utility investors might be seeing the world through a different lens. With the exception of the initial market-wide reaction to the pandemic, utility stocks have been trending upward for more than a decade while energy stocks (oil and gas) have tumbled. This tells us that we might need to look more closely at what’s going on. Steve will share his perspective on the “Utility Economic Outlook for 2021” and will answer questions you might have.

This brief overview will cover two types of information:
1. explicit information, e.g. news items we can see and read
2. implicit information, e.g. what do utility stock prices tell us

This program is exclusively for employees of WPUI member organizations.
