Dynegy, Vistra Energy combination would boost stocks, says SunTrust

SunTrust analyst Ali Agha says that a combination of Dynegy(DYN) and Vistra Energy (VST) through an all-stock transaction should boost the shares of both companies. He believes that $12-$15 per share would be "an appropriate take-out price" for Dynegy. He keeps a Buy rating on Dynegy and a Hold rating on Vistra.

Dynegy potential takeout price estimated to be $14-$15 at Morgan Stanley
Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported Vistra Energy (VST) had made a takeover approach to acquire Dynegy (DYN). Morgan Stanley analyst Devin McDermott views the potential merger as an attractive potential way to create value given improved cash flows from synergies, stronger credit metrics, portfolio diversification, and deleveraging. The analyst sees further upside for Dynegy shares and believe a buyout price could be $14-$15 per share and reiterates his Overweight rating and $15 price target.

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.

Citi sees increasing likelihood of Vistra acquiring Dynegy
After hosting investor meetings with managements in Texas, Citi analyst Praful Mehta believes the likelihood of a Dynegy (DYN) acquisition by Vistra Energy (VST) is increasing. He views price as the "likely gating item" and continues to expect an $11-$12 per share buyout price for Dynegy in an all stock deal. Vistra management seems "more open to the deal than we originally interpreted," Mehta tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes a private equity exit for Calpine (CPN) is increasing likely as the company continues with its reported sale process.

Buy
Vistra Energy initiated with a Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Praful Mehta started Vistra Energy (VST) with a Buy rating and $22 price target. The company's "strong" retail business is supported by its "strong" generation footprint, the analyst contends. He expects Vistra will likely acquire Dynegy (DYN) in an all stock deal at $11-$12 per share, representing a "win-win" for both shareholder groups. Mehta pegs acquisition upside for Vistra shareholders at $3 per share.

Hold
Vistra Energy initiated with a Hold at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Ali Agha initiated Vistra Energy with a Hold rating and a $18 price target. Agha says that the recent strength in the company's stock is driven by expectations of a transformative M&A transaction, but cautions with an outlook for lower electricity prices. The analyst says the premium valuation for Vistra Energy already discounts any large merger scenario.
