PPL, SO, and D: Top-Yielding Utility Stocks

The utilities sector is one of the top-yielding sectors across broader markets. Currently, utilities offer a yield of 3.4%, which indicates a spread of almost 50 basis points to the ten-year Treasury yield and more than 150 basis points to the S&P 500. Many top utility stocks offer a dividend yield that’s higher than the average.
