    Smart move by AEP to sell Kentucky Power. It is the least profitable of all the AEP operating companies. The $1.45B net proceeds will eliminate the need for a new stock offering in 2022.

    A 3% return and a .67 Dividend makes this stock a fair value at what price?

    6.8.21 "AEP is cooperating fully with the SEC’s subpoena," the company said. "Although we cannot predict the outcome of the SEC’s inquiry, we do not believe the results of this inquiry will have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows."

    With average price target at $93, a 3.6% dividend and 5-7% dividend growth, you would think this would be closer to its target, if not higher. Especially in a zero interest rate environment.

    It's that time of the year for AEP, dividend increase, any thoughts on now much?
  • b
    I got out last month @ $90.50 or so i believe... Was holding 2000 shares... I have been buying back ever since at every $2.00 drop, 200 shares each time.... $82 is a great entry point for anybody out there that wants a great company at a great price with a decent dividend yield... $80 to $100 should be the trading range...

    I worked for AEP for 35 years before retiring in 2010. I worked in various positions including Accounts Payable, Financial Reports, Cash Management and Budgeting during my employment. I still occasionally have lunch with some of my former co-workers who still work there. What concerns me about AEP is the growth of the Construction Program since I retired. I remember annual capital expenditure programs in the $2.5-3 billion dollar range. Now in the past 5 years the annual costs are in the $5-6 billion range. The 2019 program is another $6 billion. What is alarming is AEP doesn't generate enough internally generated cash flow to pay for these expenditures. As a result AEP has increased long tern debt by approximately $4 billion over the past 4 years (2015-2018) to finance the capital program and sustain the dividend. I know that O&M budgets have remained relatively flat except for rising wage and fringe benefit (health,care, pension, group insurance, etc. costs. This can not continue unless future capital expenditures are reduced. I don't think there is much O&M left to cut. I do not own the stock but those that do may want to consider taking some of their profits off the table especially if a significant amount of their portfolio is in AEP stock. Another thing to consider with the capital build up is when will AEP go to state regulatory commissions and FERC for additional rate relief. Or can they if their Return on Equity is considered high enoughalready by these regulatory bodies

    Is it safe to say that AEP is a great long term investment due to the future upgrading power grid and needs of clean energy and EV ? imho
  • T
    Any opinions please, why AEP and other utilities are taking a hit the last few days? I thought this stock and other utilities would be some of some of the safest in this unfortunate situation.

    1 more div at .62, then the next up 3 pennies. in at 33, my heirs can ponder the nav. lol.

    their mix of power generation of coal gas oil hydro solar and wind is the best mix in the industry for dependability no matter what the weather coupled with a great dividend I believe its the best in its class and a great stock for dependable long term results get it now before it goes to 100

    Revs and earnings are good. Matched analyst expectations. Now the stock will drop with "sell on the news" mentality. Not for any good reason. AEP is solid. Keep collecting that div.

    The proxy is out. The question is, as every, how much is enough when it comes to executive compensation. Akins compensation is up 26% in two years to $14.5 million. Other exectives got even more. I suspect that's 4 or 5 times the increase in compensation for the average employee. I cannot support such lavish pay packages, even to the company has done well.

    I'm also buying SO, D, ED, waiting game and Div along the way.

    CEO gets $5.1M salary. I think this is too excessive for a non growth stock! He should be ousted!

    It's kind of funny that the people who are talking down AEP on this Message Board, Are the same names and boosters who are doing the same with other stocks that are being shorted. It's a well organized effort, but they make a big mistake shorting this one, It has too many good qualities that investors want, Dividends for one, and a solid track record of delivering them ! Some of their algorithms using artificial intelligence, are without much intelligence.
