How FirstEnergy’s Dividend Yield Compares with Peers’

FirstEnergy’s (FE) forward dividend yield is 4.2%—higher than many top utilities’ and just below its five year average of ~4.8%. Meanwhile, the Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF’s (XLU) forward yield is 3.4%, Xcel Energy’s (XEL) is 3.3%, and Consolidated Edison’s (ED) is 3.9%. FirstEnergy’s dividend growth has been disappointing, mainly due to its relatively unstable earnings.
