Concerns over a potential dividend cut prompted Argus to cut Exelon (EXC -2.5%) to Hold earlier today. Jefferies beat them to the punch on Friday, downgrading the shares to Hold for the very same reason, noting that if forward pricing doesn't improve soon, the company isn't going to have any choice.

    Knocked down to a very low level already. Now we actually need a dividend cut to remove this uncertainty. When that happens the stock will get back to a yield under 4% after it rallies back to this years high.

    President Obama's environmental policies will benefit EXC as he gets reelected tomorrow. The dividend ex-date approaches rapidly. The next direction for this embattled utility is up.

    EXC's dividend is greater than its EPS. Sooner or later, something has to give. A Romney victory can help everybody better than an Obama win can. Go GOP!
