- Argus has boosted its outlook on PPL Corp. (PPL -0.4%), with a positive stance on the company's spinoff of its supply business (and a resulting focus on regulated businesses).
- "The regulated operations will support steady earnings and dividend growth, and ... investors are likely to award the shares higher multiples as earnings become more predictable," says Argus' Jim Kelleher.
- He's maintaining a Buy rating and bumping its price target to $40, from $35. Shares are trading today at $34.22, implying 17% upside.
- The company's regulated rate base is expected to grow at a compounded rate of 7% annually over the next five years, he says.
- EPS estimates have been raised to $2.23 for 2015 (up from $2.20, and vs. $2.21 consensus) and to $2.35 for 2016 (up from $2.28, and vs. $2.32 consensus).

- PPL Corp. (NYSE:PPL) says it is assessing and responding to damage to its electric delivery system caused today by a runaway military blimp.
- The surveillance blimp inadvertently became unmoored from the U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland and wreaked havoc as it floated into Pennsylvania, dragging its 10K-ft. cable behind it and knocking out power to thousands.
- PPL says ~17,800 customers are without power in Columbia County, Pa., with another 9K out in Schuylkill County.

- Macquarie analyst Andrew Weisel makes a bullish case for utilities such as Edison International (NYSE:EIX), American Water Works (NYSE:AWK) and Aqua America (NYSE:WTR), noting that regulated utilities have boosted dividends by a median of 6.4% over the past year despite ambitious capex plans, and valuations look attractive.
- Weisel prefers growth over yield, emphasizing that utilities with a top-quartile long-term growth outlook consistently outperform those with top-quartile dividend yields; he forecasts the fastest growth for EIX, AWK and WTR, and the slowest for Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK), PPL Corp. (NYSE:PPL) and Teco Energy (NYSE:TE).

- PPL Corp. (PPL +0.3%) is upgraded to Buy from Hold with a $34 price target at Jefferies following the recent spinoff of its unregulated business and due to PPL's higher than average rate base growth.
- PPL is now a fully regulated T&D utility with no commodity exposure following its June 1 spinoff of Talen Energy, which Jefferies believes will allow PPL to be valued as a pure play regulated utility with a group average multiple; the adverse impact of PPL's exposure to the British pound sterling also appears to be easing, the firm says.
- With the stock trading at a discount to its regulated peers, PPL is at a sensible entry point for investors, the firm says, adding that investors would gain one of the sector's highest yields while waiting for share price appreciation.

- PPL Corp. (PPL -8.5%) is sharply lower a day after completing the spinoff of its Talen Energy competitive supply business to focus solely on high-performing regulated utilities in the U.S. and the U.K.
- Tudor Pickering downgrades PPL to Hold from Buy with a $34 price target, cut from $38, as it expects U.K. headwinds, including the exchange rate and earnings quality, will continue to weigh on the stock.
- The firm estimates PPL’s earnings growth at ~4% through 2017 despite growing ratebase at 7% through 2019; despite the strong ratebase growth, PPL's U.K. utility earnings are flat through 2017 due to a change in regulatory regimes while the U.S. dollar has been strengthening relative to the British pound for a year.

- Windstream Holdings (NASDAQ:WIN) is off 1.3% in late trading as it's set to lose its spot in the S&P MidCap 400 to Talen Energy (Pending:TLN) after the close on June 1.
- Talen Energy is spinning off from PPL on or about that date -- and Windstream's market cap places it at the very bottom of the index.
PPL Corp is an energy and utility holding company through its subsidiaries, is engaged in the generation and marketing of electricity in the northeastern and western U.S. and in the delivery of electricity in Pennsylvania and the U.K.
