Ian Clark presented his in-depth investment thesis on Dynegy (NYSE: DYN) at Best Ideas 2017.
Dynegy: In the current environment finding a company with sustainable cash flows at a low valuation is difficult. Dynegy offers that thanks to undue pessimism surrounding the electricity markets in North America. The headwinds for Dynegy include newbuilds, a large unhedged exposure, a leveraged balance sheet, and legacy coal assets. These headwinds are outweighed by robust cash flow generation over the next few years and a gradual rationalization of supply and demand. Dynegy will produce more than $6 per share in FCF over the next three years, an attractive opportunity relative to the current price of $8.46. Through subsidiary restructurings and debt amortization, Dynegy will see debt drop to under 5x EBITDA in the next 12 months. With a simplified balance sheet and prodigious cash generation, Dynegy is a rare combination in today’s market.
