You want relative safety? Utility, check.
You want some diversity? Yes it has coal but it also has a great renewable energy program.
You want stability and an economy that might hold up? It operates in Canada, the U.S. and Australia.
This is "Canada's largest publicly traded power generator and marketer of electricity and renewable energy".
Oh, and the now 7% or so yield doesn't hurt.
It is trading at the low end of it's 52 week range. Upside looks uncertain, as who knows where the global economy will go from here. So you may not get a whole lot of appreciation while you sit there and pocket your 7% yield, but the downside risk seems minimal. At some point, the economy WILL improve, and so will TAC. In the meantime, 7% on a large, diverse and critical utility (everyone needs power) is not such a bad deal at all.
Most of you have probably never heard of this hundred year old company. Their website is very informative. I suggest you take a look, if you're looking for safety and income.

this stock is generating an attractive dividend,it also has taken over the assets of canadian hydro developers which is gonna boost the bottom line.large pension fund managers will be buying this stock for pension safety and attractive dividend.currently the on balance volume indicator is bullish and there is buying interest in the stock.

I live in the high desert where temperatures will soon reach upwards of 118 degrees. I like the diversified locations of the company's plants to include: Yuma, AZ, Southern CA, Mexico and Canadia. The plants are also a combination of wind, solar, geothermal, and renewable resources. I often pick stocks based on managements style; I like their responsible approach which includes current plans to restructure debt and seek innovative new markets.
