    Jim, EXC...the name is Exelon....The divy was slashed to .31 so the yield is quite less than the 5.63% you are reporting here....I don't like to nitpic on grammar, but since this barchart article is loaded w/typo's......The sentence, 'They are an utility holding company.' The article should be 'a' utility ...not an.....Hopefully you can find someone to proofread your stuff before you release it to fellow investors.
