    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.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to consider whether utilities that paid a windfall tax in the U.K. can claim a foreign tax credit on their U.S. tax returns. At issue is a ruling against the U.S. energy company PPL Corp. (PPL), which had taken a stake in Britain's South Western Electricity Plc, - which was one of the companies included in a UK privatization of 32 companies in the 1980s and 1990s. A decision is expected by the end of June.

    The Obama administration gives a green light to the first section of a proposed 146-mile transmission line, calling it a critical upgrade to the faltering Northeast power grid. The high-voltage line is capable of carrying up to 500 kilovolts and will replace an existing line carrying 230 kilovolts. PPL (PPL +0.3%) will build the 101-mile Pennsylvania portion of the line.
