The Global Infrastructure Investor, a major holder in Clearway Energy (CWEN) recently bought 5,622 shares of the company. The buy came to a total purchase price of just over $144,000.
The fund has been a regular buyer of shares over the past two years. Company insiders have also otherwise been buyers over the past three years, with the last insider sale occurring in May of 2018. Overall, company executives own just under 1 percent of company shares.
The renewable energy company has seen shares rise 19 percent in the past year, underperforming the market. The company has a mix of assets including solar and natural gas power.
The company trades at 32 times forward earnings, but 56 times trailing earnings, and earns a scant 4 percent profit margin.
Action to take: Shares have started moving higher in recent sessions, but are in a technical no man’s land between the major moving averages.
Shares could fall back into the mid-$20 range, where they would be at a six-month low and could potentially move higher from there. Looking at a one-year chart however, it appears that shares just completed a head and shoulders pattern, and are likely forming a base for a longer-term move higher.
Besides buying shares, the November $30 calls, with a bid/ask spread near $0.90 per contract, could offer some decent returns if a rally takes off in the next four months.
