A German utility/energy conglomerate with significant exposure to renewable energy sources. RWE engages in traditional oil/gas exploration and transportation, but also has a strong position in energy production and electricity delivery. #1 electricty delivery in Germany, #2 in UK, #3 in Netherlands. I am focused on this company for two reasons First, they are moving towards a variety of renewable electricity development via hydrogeneration, wind, solar, and tidal sources. Second, a dividend that currently pays 6.6% with a tendency to pay out 50-60% of their earnings in dividends. Only pays once a year. Right now, company is off 52 week high by $20.

Good analysis. I believe they have been hit harder than necessary following the news that the government will opt out of nuclear power. Also, the figures stated on Fool.com are incomplete and misleading (current P/E is not 58 but rather 5.8); refer to the company's own web site http://www.rwe.com/web/cms/en/105818/rwe/investor-relations/
