Is a Breakdown in the Charts for Consolidated Edison (ED)?

A key level of support has formed in the chart of Consolidated Edison (ED).  If this level is broken, a breakdown could occur…

Consolidated Edison, Inc. (ED) is a holding company for Consolidated Edison Company of New York, or CECONY, and Orange & Rockland, or O&R. These utilities provide steam, natural gas, and electricity to customers in southeastern New York–including New York City–and small parts of New Jersey.

The company’s regulated utilities provide it with consistent earnings. ED is also investing in renewable energy and is currently the second largest solar power producer in North America. Nevertheless, the firm is facing pricing risks due to lower market prices affecting the purchase and sale of its electricity and gas.

Its long-term debt is up from the previous quarter, and up year over year. ED has a current ratio of 0.6, which is concerning as that indicates it might not have sufficient capital to meet its short-term obligations.

While both sales and earnings growth were down slightly this year, both are expected to bounce back next year. The stock has a P/E of 17.3, indicating it is possibly undervalued at its current trading price.

The stock has shown bearish momentum over the near, mid, and long-term. This has led to a “D” Trade Grade in our POWR Ratings system, and is evident in the chart below.
