AEP, in reporting earnings for the year 2019, said that its competitive retail segment (AEP Energy) saw higher retail margins and customer growth.

With respect to the fourth quarter of 2019, the Retail segment posted a $0.02 per share improvement (about $10 million) in contribution to Generation & Marketing segment earnings versus the year-ago, due to "favorable retail margins."

For the full year 2019, the Retail, Trading and Marketing segment reported an increase of gross margin of $39.8 million versus the year 2018.

"Retail, Trading and Marketing increased $40 million due to higher retail margins due to lower market costs and higher delivered volumes and higher marketing activity in 2019," AEP said
