Bob Frenzel CFO of Xcel Energy (XEL) The Stock Podcast, Ep.27
Bob Frenzel is the CFO at Xcel Energy (XEL), one of the largest and greenest utilities in the US. Tune in to the Buyside podcast to hear Bob breakdown everything youâ€™ve wanted to know about utility investing. Topics discussed include the regulatory process, renewable energy, carbon-free target, replacement cost, and how to value utilities. In this interview, youâ€™ll hear Bob talk about some of the elements that are required for a utility to be, well, a great utility. Youâ€™ll also hear about Xcelâ€™s carbon-free ambitions and what the company will have to do to achieve their targets. And hereâ€™s a spoiler, achieving a carbon-free generation portfolio isnâ€™t solely based on wind, solar, and batteries. The solution is actually much more complicated than pundits would like you to believe. Bob also does a great job of describing just what the regulatory process is like for a utility, how a utility justifies spending money that we, as ratepayers, essentially pay for, and Bob also talks a little about how a utility determines the rates that we as customers must pay. As someone who likes to talk about the future of electric generation and utilities, having Bob on the program is a real treat, but for me, there are two really interesting topics that are discussed. The first is the fact that regulated utilities donâ€™t generate a ton of free cash flow. Thatâ€™s because theyâ€™re constantly reinvesting into the grid. The second relates to replacement cost or replacement value. I wonâ€™t spoil that last one. Itâ€™s a doozy, at least for the value investors out there!

What Does Lyft's IPO Signal for the Future of Mobility?
Lyft is set for an IPO on Friday; Uber is driving up to the IPO window soon. Investors seem enthusiastic, but skeptics see a lot of risks and a bumpy path to profitability.In 2018, transportation network companies â€” pretty much Lyft and Uber â€” gave 2.6 billion rides. Lyft gave a billion of those rides, doubling its revenue over 2017 to $2.2 billion.We know the consumer appetite is there. But as Lyft hits the public markets, many wonder if that volume can be turned into profits. Autonomous cars, competition from other shared mobility companies, and regulations are all a potential risk.So what does Lyftâ€™s IPO â€” and soon Uberâ€™s â€” tell us about where mobility is headed? We're discussing on this week's Energy Gang podcast.Then, one of Americaâ€™s biggest utilities said recently it will offer only carbon-free energy by 2050. In the second half of the show, weâ€™re going to dig into Xcelâ€™s plan. How will they do it? And will it encourage other big power companies to do the same?Finally, Midwestern floods have caused $3 billion in damages and devastated rural communities. Weâ€™ll look at our poor infrastructure management, and where the floods fit into climate trends.Recommended reading:Seattle Times: As It Gets Set for IPO, Lyft Outlines All the Reasons Ride-Sharing Could FailNPR: Ride-Hailing Services Add To Traffic Congestion, Study SaysCityLab: If Your Car Is Stuck in Traffic, It's Not Uber and Lyft's FaultVox: For the First Time, a Major US Utility Has Committed to 100% Clean EnergyXcel Energy: Building a Carbon-Free FutureAtlantic: Midwestern Flooding Isnâ€™t a Natural DisasterReport: Climate Change in the MidwestSupport for this podcast comes from Dandelion Energy, the leading home geothermal company.
