Global Water Resources Inc (GWRS) is an interesting little water utility company. It isn’t as well known as something like American Water Works (AWK). However, it pays out a monthly dividend and has been blasting higher as of late.
Utilities are an interesting investment in themselves. They provide regular cash flow and stability of earnings. This typically translates into regular and growing dividends for investors. Water utilities are even more so vital as humans literally couldn’t survive without water.
GWRS describes itself as a “pure-play water resource management company.” They operate and manage operations in regulated water, wastewater and recycled water utilities. They operate in Phoenix, Arizona. A little deceptive on the "global" part of their name.
If you haven’t heard of them, you are probably one of the individuals outside of Phoenix, Arizona. The company only has a market cap of around ~$400 million as well. Again, comparing to the behemoth AWK at an almost $30 billion market cap.
