    Everybody knows that utilities are in a bit of a bubble because of the yield grab driven by the Feds actions - so I am hesitant to buy more shares at this point. I am holding because I want utility exposure, which typically comes with a large dividend and low volatility, although, the stock has been pretty volatile lately. In addition, if the market takes a turn down, I think you will see the same flock to safety that was seen in the last two years (2011 summer, etc...), so holding utilities may be a good hedge against the uncertainty out there.

    Dividend cut to .31/Qtr starting in the the 2nd Qtr -- wonder how much of this was priced in.

    jm - where do you get .31 per share? I have not seen that, but maybe I missed it???

     

    It has been fairly obvious to anybody looking at the shares that the dividend wasn't practical at least in the short term for a year or two. The question is: "how low will it go?" I think that once the cut becomes official, it will take some of the downward pressure off of the shares because the dividend cash flow will become known (less volatility in a known vs. an unknown).

    jm - did not get a chance to page through the details yet, but thanks for pointing that out!

     

    4% sets a good baseline for them to sustain and hopefully grow.

    Valentum recently (Feb 3) upgraded EXC to undervalued with a fair value range of $33 to $55.

    Too much Exelon stock in portfolio. I was "sleeping" when stock price started to fall and even bought more in $35 range. Hopefully what goes down will come up. Should have bailed out at $36 range but now in for the long haul.
