6. What are the reasons to buy SRE? Why should I buy SRE stock?

Here are the reasons to buy SRE stock:

  • Opportunities for rate base growth at Sempra's utilities are still above average, and California regulation generally allows timely recovery of capital expenditures and a dynamic cost of capital.
  • As an early and large investor in the Mexican energy sector, market deregulation could offer Sempra an outsize share of new development projects.
  • Sempra's LNG terminals and pipeline and storage facilities give investors exposure to a growing market for natural gas in the U.S. and Mexico.
  • SRE quarterly revenue growth was 13.30%, higher than the industry and sector average revenue growth (0.62% and 0.75%, respectively). See SRE revenue growth chart.
  • SRE profitability is improving. The YoY profit margin change was 0.27 percentage points. See SRE profitability chart.
  • SRE forward dividend yield is 3.38%, higher than the industry (1.86%) and sector (1.36%) forward dividend yields. See SRE forward dividend chart.
  • SRE average analyst rating is Buy. See SRE analyst rating chart.
  • SRE average analyst price target ($146.00) is above its current price ($119.76). See SRE price target chart.
  • SRE cash to debt ratio is 0.19, higher than the average industry (0.06) and sector (0.05) cash to debt ratio. See SRE cash to debt chart.

7. What are the reasons to sell SRE? Why should I sell SRE stock?

Let's look at the reasons to sell SRE stock (i.e., the bear case):

  • Sempra's nonregulated businesses bring increased risk. Income investors looking for low-risk dividends may find less appeal than from pure-play regulated utilities.
  • Economic troubles in California have led to pressure on utilities to keep rates down and could slow the renewables rush. Earned returns will fall at both utilities, though lower debt costs offset some impact.
  • Lower LNG demand will make future LNG development beyond Cameron's first three trains much less attractive despite persistently low U.S. gas supply costs.
  • SRE Price/Book ratio is 1.75, which is high compared to its industry peers’ P/B ratios. See SRE forward Price/Book ratio chart.
  • SRE Price/Sales ratio is 3.14, which is high compared to its industry peers’ P/S ratios. See SRE forward Price/Sales ratio chart.
  • SRE short interest (days to cover the shorts) ratio is 3.75. The stock garners more short interest than the average industry, sector or S&P 500 stock. See SRE short interest ratio chart.
  • SRE Enterprise Value/Revenue multiple is 5.53, which is high compared to its industry peers’ Enterprise Value/Revenue multiples. See SRE Enterprise Value/Revenue chart.
