Exelon a net winner despite 'disappointing' 2020/21 auction, says Credit Suisse
Following PJM Interconnection's annual capacity auction, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Weinstein called Exelon a net winner despite "disappointing" RPM results for the 2020/21 capacity auction. The results for the EMAAC area should help drive a net positive result for Exelon assuming the same amount of capacity cleared year-over-year, he indicated. PSEG (PEG) and Calpine (CPN)are also "net beneficiaries," while Dynegy (DYN), NRG Energy (NRG) and FirstEnergy (FE) will "bear the brunt of a poor RTO showing," Weinstein tells investors.

NRG Energy price target raised to $27 from $20 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Daniel Ford raised his price target for NRG Energy to $27 saying the company's transformation plan is "significantly accretive." NRG's plan to sell between a 50%-100% stake in NRG Yield and Renewables, plus 6GWs of conventional generation can achieve management's projected $2.0B-$4.5B in cash proceeds and reduction of $8.7B in debt, Ford tells investors in a research note. His upside case has $11 per share of valuation accretion to $38 per share. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

NRG Energy shares have 50% more upside, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Abe Azar raised his price target for NRG Energy shares to $38 from $27 to reflect the company's planned transformation. Even with the rally year-to-date, NRG is still trading at an "unwarranted significant discount to peers," Azar tells investors in a research note titled "Baby, we were born to run." The analyst believes the stock has an additional 50% upside and reiterates a Buy rating on the name. Asset sales throughout the year and an investor day early next year set up a "favorable catalyst calendar and should lead to the stock to re-rate higher," Azar writes.
