Lower than average utility dividend, dependent on govt. subsidies for wind power development. A dysfuntional company with many internal issues. Good vision for the future but may be unable to be "in the game". Lowest kw/hr rate in Florida but has a aging work force with no internal development. Employee trust issues, multiple PSC confrontations, FDLE investigating whistle blower complaints. Hurricane exposure without "hardened infrastructure" in place. Good CEO with a knack for delivering a good message at the right time. Stock will outperform near term with a skitterish economy but will fade as the growth of the utility industry becomes more organic, and moves towards modernization and alternative/nuclear power.
