This is a boring company. They are headquartered in Evansville, IN - it's not an exciting city. They provide gas and electricity in Indiana and Ohio. Meh. Earnings growth is less than spectacular. They turn a profit almost every year and they have increased the for 49 consecutive years. Earnings are quite predictable and the stock price doesn't move very fast either way. Some may find that boring and it won't get you a +100 point score on CAPS in two months, but it is a great stock to hold for long terms.

To illustrate the power of dividend growth, someone who bought this stock in June of 1988 paid around $7.50 for a share. That investment is repaid in dividends today every 5.43 years at the current rate, which will almost certainly increase this year. That means people who got in in 1988 can tick off another 100% return every 5.43 years regardless of how the price of the stock changes. I have this stock on DRIP and it has become a behemoth. During the financial crisis I got more stocks with each dividend payout and the value of the account just keeps slowly growing. People will still be buying gas and electricity in 25 years and I will probably still own this stock then.

Indiana has been doing much better than most states and with vectren covering 2/3rd of state i expect both to grow. As the Cross Roads of the US Indiana is well positioned as a major transportation hub. With its interstate highways and major improvements at the Indianapolis Airport Indiana should grow as the economy improves and when Indiana grows so will Vectren.

Vectren has received permission to increase rates in Ohio by 3.3%, which will give them a revenue increase of $14.8 million according to the Dayton Daily News. Nice dividend, too.

Mid-sized electric and gas utility in southwestern Indiana, with gas distribution through much of Indiana and into central Ohio. It also has some non-regulated activity and coal reserves which serve its generating plants as well as others in the region.
Solid financials, with an outstanding record of continuously growing its dividends.
