    Performance of SO over the last year very disturbing. All utilities weak
    but SO among weakest. Note that SO has paid a dividend of about
    4.4 to 4.6% putting it in the middle of utility yields for many years.
    Now because of the fall in the stock price SO pays 5% more than
    nearly all other utilities except for two very troubled utilities, First
    Energy and Entergy. The only other utility that paid more was
    Excelon until it cut its dividend. Problem seems to be cost
    overruns at Kemper and especially Vogtle with no end in sight.
    There is also serious doubt that SO will be allowed to recoup
    these costs by raising rates. The high yield investors are
    demanding does not seem to bode well. Hopefully, this isn't
    another Exelon in the making.
