  • Entergy: Under-Appreciated Utility With Yield And Growth Potential [View article]
    @<jerrydd> What is 'your' average annual solar output in days ? Can't use 24 hours/day, nor can you use 365 days per year. In my calc I used 8 hours maximum (6 hour minimum) per day and 80% of 365 days per year (very conservative in my area). Panels are not restricted as to immediate locations and can be installed anywhere, where there is adequate sunshine and face generally in a southern direction (sun rises in the East and sets in the West). Some units I have investigated, will 'follow' the sun as it 'moves' during the day. Additionally, your latitude (location with reference to equator) plays a very important part in how much 'direct' (degree of inclination), year-round sunshine you receive, thus resulting the efficiency of your panel(s) output. Yes indeed, there are numerous 'solar kits' on the market for the "do-it-yourself" types, some good while others are very marginal, but I would prefer quality professionals to engineer, supply, install and maintain my proposed system. There are many other factors that need to be considered in, but I hope you get my drift (explanation). Now lets get back to the subject thesis. Good Luck to you.

    @<Goalkick9> I also saw the commercial and pleasantly surprised from an investor's position. Great approach to reach the affected patients.

    @<OW1> Agree with you but have one exception to your REIT (HCP). Too much reliance on the major tenant (HCR Manor Care).

    Stock prices are, however, reflective of emotional reactions (traders, investors and institutions) even when a potential M&A occurs and the 'price' is released.

    1) What is your estimated pay-back period (in years) at the current price of the electric energy (Kwh) provided in your region ? 2) Are you allowed to sell excess power to your local utility, and at what rate ? 3) What is your back-up plan when the sun doesn't shine (@ nights, multiple cloudy/rainy days) ? Who provides your electrical equipment maintenance (inverters, switches, batteries, solar panels, etc) ? Just asking. I've done the calculations in my area (North Florida), and the net pay-back period is about 22 years at my most moderate average annual demand.

    No, if you had 2 subscribers and lost 2, the 'churn-rate' would be 100%. Complete wipe-out !

    @ <oilrich> Yes, I'll add a truck load, IF it retreats to the 32-32.50 level, but in the mean-time I'm not holding my breath.
    Long & longer T.

    @HW > Both DUK and ETR are excellent LT investments with dependable returns (dividends). I would NOT sell DUK to buy ETR at this point. DUK has had some 'setbacks' lately (Dan River ash spill, Wilmington ground water issue) which is being reflected in their lower stock price. I personally have been invested in both for many years (30+), as well as SO, with dividend re-investments. Some of the best LT investments a person can make IMO.
