Water Infrastructure

Decades of under-investment have left a legacy of decaying water infrastructure. Due to leaks and generally ailing water infrastructure, around 73 billion hectolitres are lost in drinking water pipes every year in the USA alone. Countries around the world are suffering from ailing water infrastructure, as in some countries around 30% of drinking water is often lost in the pipes due to leaks. This is associated with enormous additional costs, which can, however, be reduced sustainably through an intact water infrastructure.

Water Desalination

In the long run, the technology of seawater desalination can completely solve the global drinking water scarcity. Currently, water desalination is simply too expensive and complex, especially for underdeveloped countries, which is why the technology has not yet caught on. However, the potential of water desalination is enormous, but it still needs further development until it is suitable for the mass.

There are an estimated 50 000 water utilities and 15 000 wastewater operators in the US, many of them small and operating at or near a loss. Thus, consolidation is quite essential for the fragmented water industry and offers the listed water suppliers great potential for growth.

England

If you want to invest in British water utilities, keep an eye on the political development in London. The leftist Labour Party wants to renationalise British water utilities and bring it back in public hands. The Tories (Conservative Party) instead privatised the water system in 1989 under Margaret Thatcher, and they want to keep it privatised because “the nationalisation of the water industry in England would be bad for customers, bad for the environment and bad for the economy.“ However, British water utilities do not have to expect regulatory headwinds by Ofwat for the next couple of years. The political headwinds from nationalisation risk has abated in 2021 and do not show any signs of reappearing right now.

Brazil

Investments in Brazilian water suppliers go along with two current risks: the political instability in Brazil and the weakening Brazilian currency. The Brazilian government has a stake in the water suppliers through the federal states, which means that politically intentional intervention is possible at any time. The depreciating Brazilian Real is weakening the financial stability of the water utilities due to their foreign currency debts. However, the Brazilian water market has a huge potential. According to Financial Times, half the population lack proper sewage services, 35m struggle without clean drinking water in their homes and 100m people have no access to mains drainage.

Why you should consider Water Stocks as part of your long term Investment Strategy – and what are the Risks?

The demand for water is very stable in the long term and is even gradually increasing due to population growth, climate change and changing lifestyles. As an investment, water is therefore much less affected by economic trends than other promising ecological investment themes such as wind or solar energy and hydrogen technology. Water stocks are also characterized by comparatively low volatility in price development, relatively stable and reliable dividend payments, and an often solid underlying business model. In addition, water stocks fulfill the now widespread ESG criteria (Environment, Social, Governance) and are therefore considered by investment funds, pension funds and generally by investors who invest or are allowed to invest exclusively on the basis of these sustainability criteria.

However, water utilities are always exposed to regulatory and political risks, as their business activities and pricing are regulated and controlled by the respective authorities. Similarly, demands for the nationalization of water utilities regularly arise from the political arena. As a result, annual growth rates in terms of sales and profits are limited, especially for water utilities; on the other hand, this makes revenues more predictable. However, shares in water utilities are also interest rate-sensitive shares at the same time. This means that their attractiveness decreases as soon as interest rates on the market rise, as they then appear less attractive compared to safe fixed-income bonds with similar or higher yields. Currently in 2023, water stocks are on average highly valued in some cases due to the promising future prospects. This reduces the price potential in the short to medium term.

Water is by no means the only attractive and promising investment topic that investors with a medium to long-term horizon should consider – as things stand today, however, water stocks should be included in your long-term investing strategy. The reasons for investing in water through the stock exchange are wide-ranging, well-founded and reasonably predictable.. The sole argument in favor of water stocks is the fact that the demand for water and wastewater services shows continuous stability. Most importantly, demand for water is relatively independent of economic conditions and business cycles. Water stocks offer the potential for long-term capital appreciation and stable dividend payments – the two cornerstones of an equity investment.
