+ Watch SO
on My Watchlist
The Company through its traditional operating companies, provides electric service in four Southeastern states.
With more nuclear and coal plants, cost of producing. Kw hour is going to be higher going fwd. has a great dividend, and is the best of industry 4 years running by a rating company
can 30 stocks randomly picked from a bag of scrabble tiles beat the market? there's only one way to find out.
stability in still uncertain waters.
Lower natural gas prices and lower interest rates will enhance profitability in regulated environment
The Dividend and the large size of this company alone will continue to make Southern a winning stock to keep for dividend income investors!
I believe SO will continue increasing its dividend regardless of what the economy does in the short term. The yield here is solid even if it underperforms in a bull market.
This has been a steady producer since its begining. Steadily increasing the didvidend.
Electricity demand is increasing as record temperatures are recorded this past year, and most likely again next year.
Yield 4.1%. YOC 6.2%. DGR 3.8%. PE 18. Normal PE 16. EPS Growth 3.5%. 10 year Dividend Contender. Currently overvalued. Position held in Brokerage account. Taking cash dividends to invest in better value.
long record of dividends plus growth puts this stock high on my list
GREAT LONG TERM STOCK WITH A GOOD DIVIDEND PLAY
I started investing in SO stock in 1976. Throughout the years Southern has performed admirably in terms of increased dividends, value and growth. From some of SO Dividends I had purchased other stocks that added healthy growth to my portfolio. Presently, about 80% of my IRA distribution (I'm 71+ years old) come from SO dividends. Also, about 70% of my taxable investment account (approximately $460,000) was accumulated from the sale and dividends of SO stock. No wonder SO is given a five-star rating by the Motley Fool.
As soon as the housing market in the south turns around energy demand will rise. Good dividend
We are heading for a masive collapse of the major "investment banks and there can be no "bailout" by governments and taxpayers form that catastrophe.
More cash per share and less debt would be nice, but overall seems to be a good stock. Solid dividend, would say probably 1.5% of portfolio.
Solid company all around. The last thing people and businesses stop paying is the electric bill.
This is a "Giant Tortoise Stock." Like a giant tortoise, It may be big and slow, but it has a hard shell (economic moat), can swim far (enter into new and emerging markets and industries), and live long.
