    If long-term Treasury yields keep rising, dividend-seeking investors in utilities (XLU -1.4%) will wonder how the lights went out for the sector, 24/7's Jon Ogg writes. The risk isn't only that investors may go elsewhere for yield; utilities have high operating costs and they borrow heavily to pay for infrastructure investments. Today's analyst downgrades only magnify what investors have to fear.

    The U.S. Supreme Court rules that utility companies paying a windfall tax in the U.K. can claim a foreign tax credit on their U.S. tax returns, a win for PPL Corp. (PPL), which sought a U.S. credit after the U.K. assessed a windfall tax on a utility PPL partially owned. At least two other U.S. utilities - Entergy (ETR) and American Electric Power (AEP) - are in a similar position.
