AWK is locked into paying $.80/sh/yr so it will never pay more than 4% ever BUT with std instruments of low risk paying 1-2% annually that is a fantastic return virtually guaranteed by PUC's across the USA. Any time it's under $20/sh it is a good buy.

Once RWE is out of the picture completely (hopefully) AWK can return to it's historic role in large utility stocks maintaining around $20/sh and splitting when it hits $40/sh every 10 years historically. Generally a well managed heavily regulated company so don't expect any AIG or Lehman failure type notices ever.
