Many Top Utilities Trade in the ‘Overbought’ Zone

The recent strength in utilities has pushed them into the “overbought” zone. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU) has its RSI (relative strength index) at 78. RSI levels at extremes indicate an impending reversal in the stock’s direction. Among the top utility stocks, Duke Energy (DUK), American Electric Power (AEP), and Exelon (EXC) are trading in the “overbought” zone with their RSIs above 70.
