    • Actually it all depends on interest rates. Their projected 2014 earning is $2.26, which they probably will beat. If they paid out 65% of their earning as a dividend which is typical for utilities they would have a dividend of $1.47. Of course they won't pay that out but you should see a steady dividend increase over the next few years. They generate a lot of cash with their regulated utilities. Their earning are based on NG keeping wholesale power prices down. Any kind of problem with NG and they make a lot of money. Also their debt to equity ratio is one of the lowest for large utilities. That being said if I could get a CD with an interest rate of over 4% or a ten year bond over 4% I might buy it but I can't. The market value of the dividend paying stocks is much clearer then these stocks not supported by a dividend plus you have to buy their product. It might be safer to buy a utility index fund but this stock would benefit from it.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • How about they fire the BOD and the management. This company couldnt have done worse.
