Wells Fargo is facing far more than a fine for its fake accounts scandal, in which employees at the lender&s;s branches across the country opened over a million fraudulent checking and credit card accounts to hit their numbers. Late on Friday, the Federal Reserve decided to restrict growth at America&s;s third-largest bank by assets until its risk and governance&a;nbsp;is improved.
The order, which also called for a revamp of Wells Fargo&s;s board of directors, sent the bank reeling in early trading Monday. Wells Fargo shares were 7% lower in late morning trading, erasing most of its gains over the past 12 months. For its top shareholder, Warren Buffett&s;s Berkshire Hathaway, the Fed-inspired stock slide meant its Wells Fargo holdings lost over $2 billion in value.

For the most part, a nuclear or coal-fired power plant in Maine will generate the same amount of electricity as an identical power plant of the same type in Texas. But the energy output of several identical wind or solar farms can vary quite a bit between locations, because they rely on their environment for “fuel”. It’s a huge consideration when weighing the portfolios of renewable energy asset companies such as Pattern Energy Group (NASDAQ:PEGI) andNextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP).

NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) operates and manages energy assets that have a cleaner profile, such as natural gas pipelines and wind and solar power-generating facilities. The other common denominator is that the company secured long-term contracts for the power these assets produce as well as the capacity of its pipelines, which provides it with relatively steady cash flow. That gives it money with which to pay a lucrative distribution that currently yields 4%.
