Luminant to close two Texas power plants

Luminant, a subsidiary of Vistra Energy, announced that it will close two coal-fueled power plants in Central Texas: its two-unit Sandow Power Plant in Milam County and its two-unit Big Brown Power Plant in Freestone County. In total, approximately 2,300 MW of nameplate power will be taken offline in early 2018. These two plants are economically challenged in the competitive ERCOT market. Sustained low wholesale power prices, an oversupplied renewable generation market, and low natural gas prices, along with other factors, have contributed to this decision. Curt Morgan, Vistra Energy's president and chief executive officer, said, "This announcement is a difficult one to make. It is never easy to announce an action that has a significant impact on our people. Though the long-term economic viability of these plants has been in question for some time, our year-long analysis indicates this announcement is now necessary. These employees have kept both plants reliably powering Texas for decades, and we greatly appreciate their service."

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.

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.

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.
