EDF: Oddo BHF still a buyer
(CercleFinance.com) - On Friday morning, an Oddo BHF analyst confirmed a "Buy" recommendation on the EDF Group share, with a target price of 11.
According to the specialist publication Contexte, CRE estimates the production cost of EDF's existing nuclear facilities at 48 euros/MWh, i.e. 5 euros/MWh less than that given by the group. According to this source, CRE takes into account the impact of the Flamanville 3 construction site fiasco and nuclear waste. This assessment of the cost of nuclear power is essential to determine the price level that will enable EDF to cover its production costs, ensure the safety of its power plants and pay itself, Oddo BHF points out.
In the context of discussions with Brussels for the implementation of the EDF reform, the cost of nuclear power is a key element in determining the course to take and the base price provided for in the next regulation. Several elements are missing for the moment to form a definitive opinion on the subject but it is of course very encouraging to see that discussions are progressing on this sensitive subject, the broker comments.
