    ValuEngine.com Rates Top-Forecast Utilities Stocks

      Below, we present the latest data on the Utilities Sector from our Institutional software package (Pending:VEI).  We applied some basic liquidity criteria--share price greater than $3 and average daily volume in excess of 100k shares.  Utilities--along with Medical Sector tickers-have come to the fore lately as investors seek safety from faltering Tech, Finance, and Commodities stocks.  Here we provide a top-twenty list of utilities tickers sorted by one-month forecast return.  All of these tickers are currently Buy-rated.
