Have had it for 2 years now. Bought at 43, exspecially for the dividend. I have done ok with the reinvestment of the dividends but suck because of the price. I would hold it till end of the year and sell it off and use it for a tax write off because of the loss. With the market going higher as it is....that loss can come in handy to help with the irs.
hold for next 6 as long as the fed keep interest rates extremely low, doubtful that it would drop below the $35 level. However, for $35/share you could investigate stocks in other industries with stable div like CAG

01:45 pm ET ... S&P REITERATES SELL OPINION ON SHARES OF EXELON CORP. (EXC 36.67**): We raise our operating EPS estimates $0.03 to $2.56 for '13, and by $0.05 to $2.39 for '14. We keep our $34 target price, a discount-to-peers P/E of 14.2X our '14 estimate. Q1 operating EPS of $0.70, vs. $0.85, was $0.04 above our estimate, with the drop due to lower realized power prices and higher operating costs. We expect Exelon to benefit from recent power prices increases, but it is almost fully hedged for '13 and more than 70% hedged for '14. It sees upside in power prices wholly driven by expected retirement of coal-fired plants, with power demand rising by less than 1%. /J.McCann
