The company has a market cap of $2.4b with 209.1m shares outstanding and a float of 205.7m shares. Trading volume was 731,515 shares and has experienced an average volume of 541,046 shares. Our calculation, using the current average volume and close price, leads me to believe that the liquidity is bad, highly speculative and an investor may want to avoid this stock.


The last annual reported EPS for TerraForm Power was -1.66 which ended on 31st of December 2017. Based on 4 analyst estimates, the consensus EPS for the next quarter is -0.05. The trailing twelve month EPS is 0.14, which comes to a trailing twelve month PE of 81.86.

Below was the last reported quarterly earnings per share:

03-31-2018:  0.56
12-31-2017:  -0.14

The dividend per share is currently 0.76, which is a dividend yield of 6.63%. TERP stock may not have sufficient earnings to cover future dividends and still be able to invest in and grow the business, therefore in the future the dividend may be reduced.

Base on our calculations, the intrinsic value per share is 27.01, which means it might be undervalued and has a margin of safety of 57.56%
