El 3 de febrer passat, Gas Natural Fenosa va presentar els resultats de l'exercici 2015 i va aprofitar per fer balanç del pla estratègic 2013-2015 en uns termes molt satisfactoris per l'assoliment dels objectius marcats. Tanmateix, la reacció dels mercats va ser negativa i els dies successius el preu de les accions va anar a la baixa. Hi va contribuir l'anunci de l'ajornament de la presentació del nou pla estratègic a causa de la volatilitat dels preus energètics, segons va dir el conseller delegat de Gas Natural Fenosa, Rafael Villaseca.
