  • Looking for Great Utility Stock Deals

    By Chris Hodge - May 9, 2013 | Tickers: NRG, NVE, PEG

    Utilities and their potential for financial security is a topic I've written about before, but it bears repeating: a stock is only as secure as its likelihood of delivering value to your portfolio. Any business with a moat, a solid business model, and steadily growing earnings has a good chance of making you wealthier over time. The real trick, however, is finding a good company for a great price more »

    By Lior Cohen - March 5, 2013 | Tickers: EXC, FE, PEG

    The utility companies are considered a safe haven investment with high dividend yield worth having in your portfolio. But are all utility companies worth owning? One company that didn't perform well in 2012 was Public Service Enterprise Group (NYSE: PEG). Is this company still considered a safe haven investment? How is it performing compared to other leading utility companies?

  • The Perfect Utility Portfolio

    By Federico Zaldua - December 7, 2012 | Tickers: EIX, EPB, PEG

    Utilities are known, at least in developed countries, to be stable income generators. This is the case in the US, where the government sets reasonable rates of return to encourage infrastructure investments and high quality service. I chose a portfolio of my three favorite utility companies. They will offer stability through a low beta and a reasonable cash flow stream through dividends. All this, plus equity upside potential.  What follows more »

  • Buy Exelon and Get Constellation Energy for Free

    By Ted Cooper - December 4, 2012 | Tickers: ETR, EXC, NEE, PEG

    Shares of nuclear power plant operator Exelon (NYSE: EXC) look cheap after fears of an upcoming dividend cut sent the price tumbling. The stock traded near $36 as October came to a close, but it now sits below $30. Although the company faces near-term headwinds, the stock appears undervalued given its strong competitive position in nuclear power and its recent acquisition of the second-largest retail power base.

  • Hurricane Sandy and the Real Dividend Stocks of New Jersey

    By Jonathan Lim - November 1, 2012 | Tickers: FE, POM, PEG

    I've been to plenty of beaches, but for some reason the Jersey Shore has always been part of me. That's why it saddens me to see the havoc Hurricane Sandy wreaked on the region. The submerged houses and automobiles, the breached seawalls, and, above all, the lost memories are painful. Aggravating the situation, much of the coast remains off-limits, and thousands are without power.

    Picking an ideal dividend paying stock is a lot harder than simply running a screen and seeing what company currently offers the highest yield. If it was that easy, there would be a lot more attention given to high yielding real estate investment trusts such as the ARMOUR Residential REIT (NYSE: ARR), which yields 18.8%. ARMOUR invests in adjustable rate, fixed more »

    The utility sector is of major importance for income investors. Utilities are characterized by stable and high dividends. Unfortunately, they are also highly leveraged and their core businesses are very capital intensive.

    In an effort to find some stocks from this sector to recommend, I screened large-cap stocks (more than $10 billion market caps) with a dividend yield of more than 3 percent, as well as a buy or more »
