Pinnacle West Capital (PNW) Surpasses Q2 Earnings Estimates

Phoenix, AZ-based, Pinnacle West Capital Corporation PNW, together with its subsidiaries, provides electricity services in the state of Arizona.

Pinnacle West’s continuous investment in traditional generation, transmission & distribution lines will boost its performance over the long run.

The gradual recovery in Arizona’s economy, decline in unemployment rates and increasing housing permits will boost demand going forward. However, stringent regulations and fluctuations in commodity price remain the concern.
