on My Watchlist
The Company is a utility services holding company. It operates through subsidiaries in the following operating segments- Generation, ComEd and PECO.
Well-run utility that pays a great 5%+ dividend. The fact that the company has nuclear plants has caused Mr. Market to unfairly penalize it in the wake of the horrible Japanese disaster.A rsignificant rise in interest rates from their current historically low level could make the dividend yield a little less attractive, but that's a risk that I am willing to take.Deej
Interested in how you feel about the acquisition, I am not a fan. The company has walked away from past deals when the price has risen in some cases only modestly due to various factors. Makes me think there is no margin of safety in this being a value-added acquisition. I personally feel this is a value destroying deal, but am unsure as to pricing in the overall effect, I am holding for now.
It is a common sense, why would some company entice shareholders with 5% dividend? Even apple shareholders don't get this kind of dividend.I think this company is playing on shareholders' free money. Countries like Germany, France and Japan are staying away from nuclear reactors since the disposal of nuclear waste is polluting their environment and is a leading health hazard.This stock is worthless like Enron.
@bye2011: Did you just compare this to Enron? To me, this is a company with a nice market share and good valuation (nice price-cash flow at 4.3 and price-earnings at 12). I won't give it a strong buy yet, but it's a buy. By the way, 85% of radiation is natural radiation. And "leading health hazard"? Power plants don't blow up every third day. I love your cache of information and statistics.
