Utilities, as a conservative investment, of interest primarily to the income investor, move opposite the DJI. Compare DJI with ED, DUK and other such investments. I just bought in at 60 and hope to sell early 2013 65 calls. I will be earning $5 on the stock, a 4% dividend and a time premium on the call if the stock is taken away. If not I acquired a good dividend payer at a very reasonable price.
