I'd also add AVA & LNT.

The one thing I don't understand is everyone's infatuation with ED. They're in NYS where the regulators are a pain in the ass, the population is very NIMBY when it comes to high voltage transmission and they have little open space to add to their generation sources without a long transmission corridor. I agree, they're a well-run organization; just look at how well they recovered from Hurricane Sandy when much of their underground distribution system was underwater. It's the outside constraints that really holds them back.

Second highest yield on my utility watch list at 4.52% and has produced 41 years of increasing dividends. Not a buy for total return but a nice stock for income investors.

I developed an analysis specific to the Utility Sector. My analysis looks at dividends, financial statements, and valuations specific to the utility sector. I look for dividends, but not at the expense of total return. Lastly, I back-test the criteria, and check for alpha (S&P Capital IQ database and P123 database management system). Below are some companies I think have good prospects for income and total return.

PPL Corp (PPL) Yield 4.94%

Suburban Propane Partners LP (SPH) Yield 8.63%

Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners LP (BEP) Yield 5.64%

SCANA Corp (SCG) Yield 4.33%

SJW Corp. (SJW) Yield 2.55%
Finally got done with my utilities article last night. Many hours of data collection for this one and I think it turned out well.

Hope you enjoy!

Lets hope we get a few buying opportunities soon. I think this sector is due for a big pullback because they are trading at our near historic levels. Once they raise interest rates and it will happen soon this sector will go back to more normal PE and yield.

Would love AEP at $65. That's my favorite name in the sector.
