Yes, select utilities are hot right now .. i've been watching AEP since their sudden upward movement a year ago (18 mos?)
Although I don't own AEP, I do own about 6,300 shrs in another utility that probably shares growth and may be working with AEP in certain areas. .
I've done a little D.D. on AEP & others. their svc territory & growth potential looks like another 'hot' ut area to me ... nice divy too (glta)
