    How Top Utility Stocks Are Currently Valued

    NextEra Energy (NEE), the biggest component in the Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU), is currently trading at a forward PE multiple of 21x based on its estimated EPS for 2019. Its forward PE multiple is higher than its five-year historical average PE multiple of ~20x. Thus, the stock looks expensive considering its historical average as well as its 8% estimated earnings growth in 2019.

    XLU: Where Utility Stocks Might Go from Here

    The sell-off in utilities (IDU) last week pulled them below their 50-day moving averages, which indicates a renewed weakness. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU) is currently trading 1% below its 50-day moving average and 3% above its 200-day moving average. Its 200-day moving average of $51.22 will likely act as a support for XLU in the short term. XLU closed at $52.95 on October 12.

    How Utility Stocks Fared in the Market Rout Last Week

    After a fairly positive start, utilities tumbled later last week and closed 1.3% lower. In comparison, the broader markets lost ~4% during the week. The sell-off last week pushed the S&P 500 to a three-month low after fresh trade war tensions weighed mainly on the technology and industrial sectors. The defensives such as utilities fared better as investors turned to safe-haven options, given their higher yields and stable price movements.

    Vanguard Utilities ETF Powering Up as Rates Rise

    The major stock indexes took a pummeling last week over fears that interest rates are rising too quickly. Surprisingly, the utilities sector, which typically moves lower when interest rates rise due to higher funding costs, has outperformed the broader market in October 2018. While the Standard and Poor's 500 index (S&P 500) is down 5% so far this month, the Vanguard Utilities ETF ( VPU) – the poster child of U.S. utilities exchange-traded funds (ETFs) – is trading flat to slightly higher over the same period, and the ETF is up 6.14% over the past three months.
