This has encouraged investors to look elsewhere for yield. Reserve Bank Governor Adrian Orr has been quite active in encouraging investors to take on more risk, not only by slashing the Official Cash Rate, but also through his corresponding commentary. The swell of funds from within NZ has been complemented by...

Accordingly, we expect Meridian Energy and the other incumbent energy providers to generate solid returns above the cost of capital in the long term. That said, from time to time, Meridian will be affected...

What is a Wide Moat Stock and how to spot one
