Exelon [[(EXC]] +1.6%) forecasts FY operating EPS of $2.55-$2.85, some way below consensus of $2.98. The company is suffering from low natural gas prices that are forcing wholesale power prices lower, while warm winter weather reduced demand.

    Seems that earnings are sufficient to support original dividend plan even with earnings revision down grade.

     

    The question is how long will it be before the low price of NG plays out due to rising demand.

     

    EXC is a winner long term barring a disaster of the Japan type.

     

    Hang in there shareholders. View this lower price today as an opportunity to buy more shares at basement prices. I will be surprised if the dividend is lowered. What does everyone think on this?

    Nine-to-1 the dividend is stable. Chances of an increase over the short run (2-3 years) aren't great.
