Drax PLC for 6/08/2020

#Germany #Nasdaq At this time of year, some considerable effort is made to “lay in” a decent supply of firewood for the coming winter here in Scotland. As anyone with oil fired heating knows, it’s not the cheapest way to heat a home. Being blessed with a forest in the back garden, it seemed an easy plan to attach chain and rope to seasoned fallen trees, then use our little red tractor to pull the trunks over the cliff and down to the garden eventually.

Matters went well until the first tree dropped off the cliff, on hitting the ground it defied gravity and leapt sideways into the base of the waterfall. This gave a couple of issues, namely the tree trunk was clearly heavier than the tractor which became briefly airborne before getting partially lodged in the stream gully. And secondly, the waterfall flow rate is presently a health hazard, thanks to what TV weather described as “biblical levels of rain”. An innocent attempt to have a supply of timber, ready for friends to chainsaw and chop this weekend, created a tableau which shall be greeted with slowly shaken heads.

This was a job which should not have been tackled solo!

Of course, while sitting looking out at the abandoned tractor, sufficient reason was given to wonder how Drax shall cope next year. They plan to close their coal fired facility, instead focussing on wood fired green energy as they aim to become a “Zero Carbon” energy supplier eventually. Hopefully the company engage brain before trying to drag logs down a hill…

Drax share price, presently around 289p, only needs exceed  295p to hopefully trigger some growth to an initial 339p. If bettered, our secondary calculates at a longer term 361p but visually, closure above 339p looks like being game changing for the shares future. Such an event will tend suggest the Glass Ceiling around the 339 level has broken and we should make long term plans for 480p and beyond.

If Drax intend spoil the party, the share price needs slip below Red on the chart, currently around 240p. Such a movement threatens reversal to 208p initially with secondary, if broken, working out at 151p and hopefully a bottom.

Our suspicion is Drax share price plans some gains.
