Atlanta Gas Light Welcomes NGVAmerica Conference & Expo to Atlanta

Hundreds of industry experts expected to attend national conference Nov. 18 - 21

ATLANTA - Nov. 14, 2013 - Fleet owners who are looking for a reason to switch to natural gas vehicles (NGVs) need not look any further. Beginning Nov. 18 - 21, Atlanta Gas Light will welcome natural gas aficionados from all over the United States to the North American Natural Gas Vehicles Conference & Expo (NGVAmerica). Nearly 1,000 industry experts will congregate at the Georgia World Congress Center to discuss "Transportation Fuel for a Better Bottom Line" and address the future of alternative fuels and how each participant has a stake in the success of the NGV industry.

"We are very excited about having this year`s conference in Atlanta," said Richard Kolodziej, president of NGVAmerica. "Georgia is becoming one of the fastest-growing NGV markets. In fact the entire Southeast is becoming a NGV region, and we expect record crowds not only at the conference but in the exhibit halls."

"Atlanta Gas Light is proud to have industry leaders come to the great city of Atlanta where there has been a concerted effort to make natural gas vehicles a permanent part of the landscape for commercial businesses and consumer transportation," said Hank Linginfelter, executive vice president of Distribution Operations, AGL Resources.  "We are committed to providing natural gas as a sustainable fuel solution for large fleet vehicles and operations."

During the Tuesday, Nov. 19, plenary session Linginfelter will present Carpe Diem! NOW is the Time to Embrace, Engage and Empower. Pivotal LNG, a wholly owned subsidiary of AGL Resources and one of the largest producers of land-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the United States, will join its parent company as a sponsor of Wednesday evening`s NGV Achievement Awards Reception and Dinner.  The awards ceremony will recognize industry leaders for their outstanding contributions, leadership, vision and innovation to advance natural gas as a vehicular fuel.

"Atlanta Gas Light has been in the natural gas industry for more than 150 years, and we believe our product provides excellent benefits as an alternative transportation fuel," said Linginfelter. "Opportunities like the NGVAmerica conference give us a platform to educate people about the economic and environmental benefits of the natural gas product we offer - it`s American, abundant and affordable."

Atlanta Gas Light has significantly impacted the number of NGVs used throughout the city of Atlanta.  The company has cultivated a nearly 20-year partnership with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) to support the conversion of its municipal bus fleet from diesel to compressed natural gas (CNG). Today, MARTA has 370 buses powered by CNG, with plans to convert the entire municipal fleet to natural gas by 2018.

With the support of the Georgia Public Service Commission, Atlanta Gas Light opened the state`s first public CNG station in Valdosta on Aug.16 under the AGL CNG program. AGL recently announced plans to open several new CNG stations in the metro-Atlanta area in 2014. The City of Atlanta also is investing in NGVs as it converts its sanitation fleet to vehicles that use CNG.

    Forget Johnson & Johnson: Here Are 2 Better Dividend Stocks

    If you own Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) stock, there's a really good chance that you do so because of its dividend. The healthcare giant is a longtime favorite for income investors, in large part due to its sterling track record of 56 consecutive years of dividend increases. When it comes to dividends, I think investors should look to AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) and Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) instead of J&J.

    Koch Brothers' Groups Are Lobbying Congress to Curb President Trump's Authority on Tariffs

    The network backed by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch is launching a six-figure ad campaign and sending letters to every member of Congress urging them to pass a bill that would curb President Donald Trump’s authority to impose tariffs. The network is urging Congress to support the Global Trade Accountability Act, legislation introduced by Utah Sen. Mike Lee at the beginning of Trump’s presidency. The bill would restore some of Congress’ constitutional authority to regulate foreign trade, requiring the President to seek approval from both houses of Congress before implementing any trade policy.

    Why GE stock may be a buy after getting dumped from the Dow

    To understand why, look at what happened to IBM (IBM) in 1939, when it was kicked out of the Dow. Norman Fosback, the erstwhile head of the Institute for Economic Research, reported in his investment textbook “Stock Market Logic” that “the DJIA would today be more than twice its currently quoted level” had IBM not been kept out of the Average for those four decades — meaning the Dow currently would be at around 50,000. One measure of this comes from an analysis of the two dozen stocks that have been added or deleted from the Dow since 2000.

    4 Energy Stocks Yielding Over 6%

    High-yield dividend stocks can be a great way for investors to generate cash returns from investing, but they aren't always the most stable, and the high yield itself can mean the market may not think a dividend is sustainable. Within the energy sector, renewable energy is a great place to find sustainable dividends that will pay investors for decades to come. Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE: BAM) has become one of the biggest renewable energy owners in the world through a series of companies it controls.

    Beyond Google: 3 Under-the-Radar Internet of Things Stocks

    Many investors have probably heard a lot about the Internet of Things (IoT), which is the connection of all sorts of everyday devices to the internet so that users can track data or automate their lives. Smartwatches, fitness trackers, thermostats, refrigerators, industrial equipment, and even some running shoes are all part of the IoT. Much of the progress in the space has been made, unsurprisingly, by big tech companies and Alphabet's (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Google is a prime example.

    All good things must come to an end eventually, and the swan song has come for what has been the longest-tenured stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI), General Electric (NYSE: GE). Despite more than 50 changes in the Dow's components since its inception more than 122 years ago, General Electric has survived most of them. It was briefly booted from the Dow in favor of U.S. Rubber all the way back in September 1898, only to return in April of the following year.
