  • Dividend Contenders: 34 Increases Expected In The Next 11 Weeks [View article]
    @Michael > You must be a true idealist (or optimist). I don't believe there are any true average investors, "if" they had $1,000,000 (extra), would invest in a single stock even @ 10% divy. Too many 'eggs in one basket'. A great idea, but not very realistic, or smart. Life is too unpredictable and short, as well as 'the market'.

    Bret, any thoughts on HollyFrontier (HFC) ? Small in comparison, but refineries appear strategically located and well managed. Potential M&A target ?

    Thanks for the more in-depth and accurate response. I guess I was shooting from the hip, generally speaking.

  • 3 High Yielding, Undervalued Utilities, Part I: National Grid [View article]
    @Fundflow > Ref: "........NEE tank over the summer". Unfortunately, Utes are affected by the Acts of Nature (ie: hurricanes, storms, tornados, ice/wind, etc.). You may recall the destructive hurricane Sandy that was devastating to the majority of NEE service area. Due to the costs (loss) of destruction, reconstruction and loss of income/revenue, it is quite obvious that short term investors and institutions 'unloaded'. Additionally, Ute stock prices are also seasonal, to some extent, and always influenced by anticipation of interest increases. Normally, this presents a BUY opportunity.

    Ref: "....insights or words of wisdom on NEE ?" I firmly believe that Bob has done an exceptionable job in his Article. Perhaps your question would warrant a review of the Article.

  • The Europeanization Of U.S. Utilities, Part 2 [View article]
    @manya05 > Yes, 'energy storage' would definitely be the (hypothetical) solution, however, the current technology is grossly inadequate to meet any appreciable demand. A Hydro Electric Pumped Storage Facility is the closest technology, but is highly restricted by locale, economics and requires an alternate energy source during low demand periods.

  • Westport Innovations: The Future In Natural Gas Technologies [View article]
    I have been a stockholder of WPRT and CLNE for several years and still remain long. This is indeed the future to foreign independence and resolution to environmental issues. Unfortunately, Obama and the oil Lobbyist cannot (or will not) support the development of this major asset. NG (CNG/LNG) will never replace the demand for fossil fuels, only reduce the demand and prices.

    Jon, Another excellent Article. I've been an SO investor for over 30 years with DRIP along with many other utilities. IMO SO has always had the best management team, bar none.
