Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure: My Long-Term Bet On The Energy Transition

Trillions of dollars are pouring into the clean energy transition, growing the total addressable market for Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure. Atlantica’s Q2 2022 year-over-year renewable energy growth was 28%. Their cash grew to $739 Million from $622.7 Million while their liabilities decreased from $824.4 Million to $582 Million. Cash available for distribution (CAFD) grew at 6.3% year over year with CAFD growth targets of 5-8% through 2025. As the 10-year treasury’s yield of 3% continues to rise, investors might flee from lower-yielding stocks and flock to Atlantica’s nearly 6% dividend.
