    An Unrelated Question - Defensive stocks

    Thanks for the replies on utilities. also said to look for "low cost producers" without saying what that meant.
    How do you identify a "low cost producer". Also, I mis-spoke on LIL - they did give 7.4% yield, but now give 4.9%, I think,
    confirming what another poster said about LIL possibily being in trouble. Been looking at PPL. They give a 7.4% yield and seem to be in
    much better shape (reasonable debt-to-equity, reasonable price-to-earnings, O.K. analysts reccomendations, etc.) Any more
    comments? Other defensive stock recommendations?
    LLY is up almost a point!
