Atlantica (NASDAQ:AY) has increased renewable energy production and expansion in North America, which provides solid support for valuation expansion. In 2023, Atlantica delivered a 2.6% year-over-year (YoY) boost in renewable energy production. This is primarily based on higher production of solar assets in Spain and the US.

The increase in renewable energy production reflects the company’s focus on optimizing asset utilization. It leverages favorable weather conditions and boosts operational reliability. Hence, higher energy production contributes to top-line growth and strengthens Atlantica’s position as a leading provider of sustainable infrastructure solutions.

Additionally, Atlantica’s efficient natural gas, heat assets, water assets, and transmission lines held very high availability levels throughout 2023. High asset availability ensures uninterrupted revenue generation, minimizes downtime-related losses, and enriches the reliability of Atlantica’s infrastructure assets. The company’s focus on holding an operational edge and reliability underscores its focus on delivering consistent returns to stakeholders.

Moreover, Atlantica’s focus on North America as its primary target geography for new investments is supported by solid revenue and EBITDA growth in the region. Revenue in North America increased by 4.9% to $424.9 million in 2023 compared to the previous year, driven by higher production of solar assets in the US. Despite a slight decrease in adjusted EBITDA due to lower wind production, Atlantica’s strategic investments in solar and storage projects reflect its focus on capitalizing on regional growth opportunities.

Finally, Atlantica explores growth opportunities beyond North America in other geographies, including South America and Europe, as indicated by its diversified portfolio. Therefore, the revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth in South America highlights the company’s success in leveraging opportunities in emerging markets and securing inflation-indexed contracts to enrich revenue stability and growth potential.

Goodyear (NASDAQ:GT) has a solid, comprehensive plan, Goodyear Forward, to optimize its portfolio and improve its bottom line considerably. The objective is also to reduce leverage to derive a high valuation. A core component of this plan targets aggressive cost reduction moves. The aim is to deliver annualized cost reductions of $1.0 billion by Q4 2025.

The company laid the groundwork for executing this plan in 2023. The expected benefit to segment operating income from these initiatives is approximately $350 million in 2024. This implies a considerable boost in operational and cost efficiency, which may boost Goodyear’s profitability and growth potential.

Furthermore, Goodyear has developed comprehensive strategies to expand its margins, focusing on capturing incremental segment operating income primarily through better price/mix in North America. These strategies aim to optimize brand and tier positioning, rationalize SKUs, increase customer and channel profitability, and enrich coverage in premium product lines.

Finally, the company anticipates capturing $300 million of incremental segment operating income through its margin expansion strategies. This demonstrates the potential impact of these initiatives on Goodyear’s performance and profitability. Looking forward, Goodyear expects these actions to impact approximately $50 million in 2024.
