Électricité de France SA (literally, Electricité de France), commonly known as EDF, is a French multinational electricity company. Operations include electricity generation and distribution, power plant design, construction and dismantling, energy trade and transportation. The company, founded in 1946 and based in Paris, France, is majority owned by the French state. EDF is part of the CAC Next 20 index. Although energy stocks show a great attraction like that of E.ON in Germany, the share price has depreciated sharply in 12.5 years. In fact, it lost 93% of its value between November 2007 and March 2020.
Today we see that the energy sector is growing strongly. Commodities such as oil, gas and uranium are priced higher. Consequently, utility companies such as EDF should also recover the global bullish market. Therefore, investors may be looking to buy the French giant EDF in order to diversify its portfolio through indirect investments in rising commodity prices.
