I like this stock for the long term; however, the PE for this stock is rather rich and any increase in the 10 year bond will send it down. Utilities have done better than they ordinarily would as a result of the low rates. Utilities have gotten way ahead of themselves. As a retiree, I own a lot of utilities in non-tax deferred accounts and bought a lot of stock in the 2009 - 2011 time frame, so I have huge gains. Over the long pull the future investments will translate into higher dividends, so whether or not SE goes up or down in the short term it is great long term investment for income.
