The recent correction in utility stocks provides an asymmetric investment opportunity in Otter Tail (NASDAQ:OTTR). The current valuation does not reflect the sale of non-core assets and more predictable earnings/cash flow, high operating leverage, debt reduction or positive fundamentals in core utility business. The recent takeover of NV Energy (NYSE:NVE) by Buffett highlights the value in regional utilities with a history of strong operating performance.
