It is probably going to bounce off the old support. It had a pretty big haircut since the beginning of 2018. It looks like it will go back to $9.

They make geothermal energy in Latin America. It's one of the cheapest stocks in this sector with a double-digit free cash flow yield. Pays a 5.7% yield that will increase slightly next year. A takeover target too.

There was a civil unrest where they had they had their flagship asset. Some pension reforms for the country received pushback. So the stock tanked last year, even though they did everything right. The business is still quite sound but cheaper than Canadian utilities. This is for a risk on kind of investor so consult your advisor.

It's too small for him. He prefers larger companies. It pays a big dividend over 8%. Definitely a riskier green utility. They own geothermal projects in Nicaragua. Geothermal is commendable with great potential, but PIF owns only a few projects. He needs to see more projects and diversification for him to buy. That high dividend means limiting their growth.

(A Top Pick Oct 27/17, Down 24%) They are operating superbly. They have gone through a transformation over the last few years. The big issue is the political risk because there is quite a bit of political unrest where they opreate. The asset is performing well but the stock went down because of political uncertainty. The stock trades at a huge discount.

Had done well, then problems in Nicaragua. A one-asset company. Don’t want to own. Well run, but market is telling you that the risks are higher, and the risks can wipe out your dividend in a hurry. Government could cancel their contract. Yield is north of 7%.

It has been a great turnaround story. They paid down a bunch of debt. It is a stable business. Everything is going well, but there has been some recent political turmoil and is creating an overhang on the company. It is hard to know how it is going to play out.

Good time to buy? Geothermal play in Latin America, especially Nicaragua. Very much a growth play. Only one project up and running, but tremendous opportunity here. Canada already has renewable infrastructure. But a lot of countries don’t yet. Bit more of political risk, that’s why it’s a growth play and not a dividend play.

(A Top Pick May 29/2017, Down 17%) Own geothermal facility in Nicaragua. Steady cash flow, nice dividend. Had been performing well until recently, with civil unrest in Nicaragua, which they think will resolve, but this is one of the risks of investing in another jurisdiction. One positive is that this asset is a stable business and is pretty important to the country. Pullback could even be a buying opportunity.

Not a very liquid stock. This is a cash flow story. They operate from a plant in Nicaragua. Have increased their dividend quite regularly. Yields about 4%, which is paid in US$s. There are some growth opportunities. They are going to be drilling more wells, and are looking to put in a heat exchanger which would add a lot more output. Thinks there is room for upside and that the dividend will grow.

Their main asset is a geothermal energy facility in Nicaragua, a pretty stable political jurisdiction. Nicaragua relies significantly on renewable energy for power generation, in particular this company’s power facility. They have a long-term contract with the government, which generates very stable cash flow. Dividend yield of 4%. (Analysts’ price target is $25.)

A geothermal play in Nicaragua. He saw a presentation in January where they finally got their utilization levels up to a reasonable level, which isn’t that far from a point where equity investors are wiped out. They are now at a point where they could start generating cash flow. Instead of milking this as a cash cow, they are going to spend some more money, and he shook his head in disbelief. He would run for the hills from this stock.

Geothermal energy. They punch holes in the ground down to hot water and steam, and send it up through a power plant. Producing about 70 MW of power, which is supposed to grow over time. This is a cash flow investment. Once they set up the facilities, they should run and generate cash. It will be a dividend play over time. Based in Nicaragua, which apparently has pretty good laws. Probably not a huge growth stock.

Geothermal energy in Nicaragua. They have a fantastic PPA with the grid operator there. They pay a dividend and have raised it twice in the last few months. They pay in US$. There is upside in the form of higher production. There is a chance you might get a bid from a bigger operator. (Analysts’ Target: $22.33).

Thinks that the run on this can continue. They have enough things in the works to increase their dividend which is paid in US$. They have drilled some holes which looks pretty promising. They have equipment that they can add on to the plant which adds a lot of megawatts. For every megawatt they add, they add about $1 million US of cash flow. Definitely thinks the dividend is heading higher, and he could see the stock reaching $20 in the next year or so.

An energy producer. Has a geothermal plant in Nicaragua. They have cash flow and initiated a dividend this year. Dirt cheap. He really likes this and has been buying a lot of it. Trading at a massive discount to its BV. Have some good upside. Some of their drilling programs could bring in significant more cash flow.

To put it into perspective, the stock was $2 and change and is now less than $0.50. Doesn't see any good news in this. There is a lot of selling indicating people are trying to get out of it fast. Volume has dropped off. It is very sporadic right now. Any contracts that have been announced are not having any major impact.
