    Better than I expected with the very mild summer we had. They are going to increase the quarterly dividend by .04, .16 for the year. This is the same increase they made last year. They also increased their mid-range guidance. All in all, a favorable earnings report.

    Why cut the pie in half and have half the apples in it. Splits don't mean a damn thing. It does allow lower income investors in at a lower price but historically splits have very little long term effect, especially with utilities. Wait and see what happens after this quarter's earnings. We had a very mild summer. I'm not expecting much with this quarters earnings.

    Actually, that article you refer tp from Cramer, did have an Alliant Energy reference way at the bottom, as well as the Alliant Techsystems. You had to scroll all the way down. I thought the same thing when I first read it, but then I scrolled down. This rise in the stock must be do somehow to the very early cold weather we've been having in Alliant's service area.
