Exelon says 'strongly committed' to future of nuclear energy

In response to media coverage of remarks made at the U.S. Energy Association's annual meeting in Washington last week, Exelon clarified the company is fully committed to and investing in advancing the future of nuclear energy. "We are unequivocally committed to a strong and successful future for nuclear energy, including advancing and investing in new technology while tirelessly promoting sound energy policies and critically needed market reforms," said Chris Crane, Exelon president and CEO. As the nation's largest nuclear energy operator, Exelon is working to promote federal, regional and state policy reforms that appropriately value zero-emission nuclear power for its many environmental, economic, resiliency and national security benefits. According to a recent report by The Brattle Group, the expected closures of four nuclear power plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania would increase carbon emissions by more than 20 million metric tons, essentially wiping out the environmental benefits of all the wind and solar built in the PJM region over the past 25 years. Despite Exelon's strong belief in nuclear energy, it is clear that new, large-scale nuclear plants are not viable in today's U.S. competitive markets, where even existing nuclear plants are challenged due to the failure of these markets to value resiliency and environmental externalities. With needed reforms, however, Exelon sees tremendous promise in advanced nuclear technologies, including small modular reactors that can be built on a shorter capital cycle, and Exelon is partnering with a variety of companies to pursue these innovative technologies. Exelon also continues to promote advanced nuclear reactor designs and advance international nuclear growth opportunities. In addition, Exelon has invested millions in predictive technologies and innovations and power uprates. Exelon is fully engaged in preserving our nation's existing nuclear fleet and advancing the nuclear technologies of tomorrow. We can't imagine a clean energy future without zero-emission nuclear energy. But we also have to be honest with ourselves about the need for changes to markets and energy policy to value resilience and environmental attributes in a technology neutral way. If we do that, then nuclear energy will easily find its place along with renewable energy and next-generation storage in America's future energy mix."

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exelon (EXC) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs by analyst Michael Lapides, with a $43 price target, as the analyst sees higher sum-of-parts value, potential upside to consensus estimates, and few near-term negative catalysts. 2. Harley-Davidson (HOG) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Longbow by analyst David MacGregor, citing valuation despite channel checks that indicate continued weakness in U.S. sales. MacGregor continues to be concerned about weak U.S. retail sales trends but views shares as fairly valued following his downgrade in January. 3. Jacobs Engineering (JEC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank by analyst Chad Dillard, who said the market is pricing in a near certain probability the CH2M merger integration will fail. He believes the concerns are overdone and thinks the risk of this merger is lower than other deals in the space. Jacobs management has a strong execution track record, Dillard contended. The analyst sees a path to 65% earnings growth and a doubling of free cash flow over the next three years. As such, he views the stock as "significantly undervalued." 4. Akamai (AKAM) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley by analyst Keith Weiss. After a period of declining margins, he sees signs of stability, noting that following the involvement of activist Elliott Management the company has announced a 5% workforce reduction and new shareholder value initiatives. Also, the contribution from Akamai's top 6 Media customers looks to have stabilized after two years of steep declines and his customer survey indicating a more defensible core base, Weiss said. 5. Yandex (YNDX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Brady Martin, who updated his model to reflect the company's better than expected fiscal 2017 financials as well as the taxi transaction with Uber that closed in February. Martin noted that Yandex continues to increase share on both desktop and mobile. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
