Portfolio: Earnings and Guidance

By Elliott H. Gue on May. 15, 2020

Q1 earnings and guidance updates for the Model Portfolio and High Yield Energy List are now all in. The exception is contract renewable energy company Northland Power Inc (TSX: NPI, OTC: NPIFF), which has recently affirmed guidance.

Not surprisingly, all of our companies showed at least some negative impact from COVID-19 fallout, some a lot more than others. Importantly, what we saw was very much in line with our expectations. It also by and large supported the thesis that these are the companies with the resilience to survive this worst of all worlds for energy, combining a supply glut with unprecedented demand destruction to drive down prices and sector activity.

These companies’ resilience will be tested again this year, as global markets slowly and painfully come back into balance. But their solid performance so far as businesses—combined with actions to preserve capital the rest of the year—increase our confidence they will ride this out.
