I like this stock, slightly better than average...I have a very small holding ($7,000 and cahnge), and I haven't added to it since 1995. I bought in using the DRIP--nice 5% discount--filled up, and then the stock was added to the S&P 500 when it took off.
I think water is a safer bet than electricity for the very conservative investor...would like to see them get their dividend yield up a little, and quit issuing so much new stock.
I don't mean to sound so negative, but I think there are better stocks out there, but obviously, I'm not completely sure of this or I would have sold, now, wouldn't I?
I like it for the long term, very, very conservative part of my portfolio.
