Peers’ price targets

Calpine (CPN) has a one-year price target of $15.07 compared to its market price of $10.90, which implies an upside of 38.0%. For Dynegy (DYN), Wall Street analysts have a price target of $11.96, which implies a rise of 64.0% in one year from its current market price of $7.30.

Utility giants (XLU) such as Duke Energy (DUK) and Southern Company (SO) have largely flat estimated movements from their one-year price targets.

NRG Energy might appear attractive to investors after rising 80.0% in the last year. It may also be on a growth path after the recent activist involvement. However, a fundamental weakness among power producers may persist considering poor power demand and lower power prices.
