Profiting From the Pursuit of Power by Jack Willoughby

Summary: America's largest supplier of power can't churn it out fast enough. The nation's ever rising demand for electricity is turning Constellation Energy (NYSE:CEG) into a rising star, with its current share price of $80 having doubled in the past three years. Some analysts foresee 20% or more upside for the shares in coming months, trading now at 18x 2007 earnings estimates. The company produces some of its product and purchases the rest from utilities, giving it a well-rounded knowledge of the industry, and the ability to offer large-scale customers lower prices than its competitors.

Considering all signs of the times, Constellation is in a stellar position.
