Reasons behind EON’s performance

  • EON is planning to sell its stake in Turkey’s biggest energy company Enerjisa to improve its debt and equity balance.
  • EON’s partner Haci Omer Sabanci Holdings is also planning to sell a stake in Enerjisa.
  • Also, both companies are interested in selling a minority stake to one or more Chinese investors.
  • Enerjisa is continuously trying to optimize its financial and operational performance.
  • EON wants to sell the stake in Enerjisa and invest those amounts on renewable energy resources.

EON’s returns

EON is currently trading at 8.8 euros. Its 52-week high is 14.9 euros while its 52-week low is 7.1 euros. It returned -40% in 2015, and its current price-to-earnings ratio is 17.8x. That’s relatively higher than its peer Schneider Electric. EON’s current price-to-book value ratio is 0.96x.

It’s trading 1% below its 100-day moving average, at par with its 50-day moving average, and 2% above its 20-day moving average. The 100-day moving average is a strong resistance point for the stock. In fact, the stock was unable to cross its 100-day moving average in the last seven months. Analysts’ estimates indicate an upside of 18% for EON over the coming 12-month period from its current levels as of January 19, 2016.
