    Aqua America enters gas utility space with $4.3 bln Peoples buy

    Aqua America Inc has agreed to acquire privately-owned natural gas utility Peoples in an all-cash deal worth $4.3 billion inclusive of debt, it said on Tuesday, as the water utility seeks to diversify its service offering. American utility companies have been building scale through dealmaking to help cost cuts and provide funds to help replace much of the country's aging critical infrastructure. Billed as the first major acquisition of a gas utility by a water provider, the deal would create a company which is both the second-largest water utility and fifth-largest stand-alone natural gas local distributor in the United States with 1.7 million customers, according to a statement announcing the transaction.

    10 Top Utility Stocks to Buy for Safety and Dividends

    A strange thing is happening with utility stocks. Traditionally, when interest rates move higher - typically measured by the movement of the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield - investors rotate away from utilities. But that hasn't been the case; in fact, the opposite is true. Instead, the sector's safety aspect is winning out, and jittery investors are piling into the space. "In a market like this, in a dramatic selloff, the rotational effects will be higher than the interest rate effect," says Jay Hatfield, CEO and portfolio manager at Infrastructure Capital Management. Broadly speaking, according to stock market research firm Birinyi Associates, independent power producers and electric utilities are best at handling the market adversity. Multi-utilities and water providers are losing ground, just like the rest of the market. But specifically, what are the best stock picks in this defensive sector - where investors can duck for cover? Here are 10 utility stocks to buy that yield an average of 4.1%. SEE ALSO: 53 Best Dividend Stocks for 2018 and Beyond
