    10 Best Utility Stocks to Buy for 2020

    When investors think defense, they think utility stocks.The S&P; 500's utility sector behaved anything but defensively in 2019, however. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLU) delivered a 25.9% total return last year - better than more than half the index's sectors, including the revamped, "growthier" communications sector and consumer discretionary stocks.That's surely a pleasant surprise for utility-stock investors. Many enter the sector looking not for growth, but stability in down markets and the dependable dividends these companies can afford thanks to the often regulated nature of the utility business.Like most of the market, utility stocks did get stretched as a result of their 2019 run. "The utility sector currently trades at a P/E of 19.3x, versus a 15-year historical average of 15.01x, which represents a 29% premium to the S&P; 500," Michael Sheldon, executive director and CIO of financial planner RDM Financial Group, told Kiplinger in a December email.While Sheldon is concerned about the sector's valuation, he's also quick to point out that many utility stocks have low beta - a measure of volatility. Thus, they're still providing more stability compared to the overall market.Here are 10 of the best utility stocks to buy for 2020. This isn't your usual group of utilities, either. While some of these names should be expected to provide a traditional combination of dividend income and lower volatility, a few are set up for potential growth thanks to their connection to green-energy initiatives.

    Year in review 2019: Philadelphia's energy industry saw a giant explosion, big-money deals

    The energy and utilities industries aren’t exactly known to produce high-drama headlines, but between fiery explosions, criminal investigations and big-money deals negotiated in secret, the gas, water and electricity worlds in the Philadelphia region saw their share of must-read stories in 2019. Here are the highlights from the sector from the past year: Water, water, everywhere American Water and Aqua America, the largest and second largest publicly traded water utilities in the country, respectively, continued their aggressive acquisition strategies in the past year as municipal operators’ financial struggles and new state laws have made scooping up community-owned water and wastewater systems more financially feasible.

    Outright sales, a concession agreement and other options -- but what is JEA's price tag?

    Six sales pitches and a concession agreement were on the table as JEA has been negotiating with potential suitors over the past two months — but it remains unclear how much the city could stand to receive if the utility were to be sold. After JEA voted at a hastily called Christmas Eve meeting to end negotiations — which has cost the utility $10 million — the companies' initial bids were no longer exempt from Florida open record laws. Accordingly, late Friday, the utility released the submittals from seven of the nine companies, holding back two.
