UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) price target of $69.00 (from $68.00).

Analyst, Jim von Riesemann, said, "Key events to watch: (a) 7/31 and 8/7: DUK must deliver subpoenaed documents (boarding minutes, emails, etc. since merger w/Progress (NYSE: PGN) was first discussed in July 2010) to the NC Attorney General and NC Utilities Commission; (b) 8/2: reports 2Q12 EPS, first earnings report as a combined company; (c) 8/13: DUK scheduled to testify before FL PSC on Crystal River 3 nuclear plant reparation efforts."

Riesemann sees a valuation gap vs. peers, but said, "Execution risk – namely, merger integration and successful regulatory outcomes – remain key drivers of the DUK investment thesis, in our opinion."
