Utilities Industry Research Report

Utility Industry Profile _ (edit/improve) Utilities are investments in anything that relates to water, electricity, or other public services. The companies that operate in this field tend to be large in size and slowly growing. Utility companies sometimes work in competition with local government controlled facilities. In many cases, the government farms out some of the public services to any large utility company in the area. Utilities have long been considered to be safe and conservative investments. They have a constant flow of income (via customers using electricity, etc.), and their expenses are not likely to increase much over time. This is not to mention the fact that most investments in utilities pay dividends of some kind. The conservative investor would possibly be interested in this kind of investment for his or her portfolio.

Utility Industry Research & Analysis: The utility industry includes companies whose sales come from the administration of public services such as water and power. Utility Trading Strategy: The utility industry tends to be less sensitive to economic cycles, because public services are essential to industrial and residential consumers. Look to buy undervalued utility investments when stock prices are low and sell overvalued utility investments during any part of the business cycle when stock prices are high. Upward sloping stock charts and financial news may indicate a selling opportunity while the opposite means that stocks are becoming undervalued.
