5 Fairly Valued Central Utilities With Above-Average Dividend Yields

Julie C - Monday, March 12, 2012

. . . .

This article reviews 5 Central United States regulated utility stocks that appear fairly valued and offer above market dividend yields. Utility stocks have long been coveted by investors seeking above-average yield and stable prices. Currently, many high-quality regulated utilities offer bond-like characteristics, but with yields higher than what is available from the 30-year treasury. They have historically been considered very conservative investments, and as such, have often been used to augment a bond portfolio, or even as substitutes for bonds. Utility stocks offer the allure of modest capital appreciation and the potential for modest dividend increases over time, while simultaneously providing a higher degree of safety than most equities.

Three years later,

after the Sabols had established a brisk business selling the league

films of itself, Ed Sabol persuaded it to buy his company, originally named Blair Motion Pictures, after his daughter and Steve’s sister. The deal called for him and Steve to run it. Ed was the resident until 1987, when Steve,

who had the titles of creative director and co-founder, succeeded him.

“I may have started it, but he has been the engineer

behind it,” Ed Sabol said of his son in a 2008 interview. “He comes up with these great ideas and is a great student of the game.” Of the sports Emmy Awards won by NFL Films, 107, including two this year, Steve Sabol was

cited on more than a third. The films have impressed Hollywood. The director Ron Howard said in an interview with The New York Times in 2000 that NFL Films highlight reels had an effect on how movies are made, “particularly

montages.” The director Sam Peckinpah once told Steve Sabol that he got the idea for the classic slow-motion gunfight scene in the 1969 movie “The Wild Bunch” after watching a Super Bowl highlights film Mr. Sabol had made. NFL Films was

not the first company to make game films, but its innovations are widely considered to have elevated the genre. Mr. Sabol put more cameras on the field than others had and used them to provide new perspectives. One, called the mole,

was a hand-held camera that roamed the sideline in search of spectacular close-ups. He used ifferent speeds in different cameras.He used film, not tape, for greater clarity. (This year, NFL Films made its first all-digital

feature, on the Miami Dolphinstraining camp.) He interspersed

the smacks and whistles with the sounds of a 60-piece orchestra playing Tchaikovsky. He highlighted emotional themes like comebacks and underdogs. He persuaded players and coaches to wear microphones. He made some of the first funny films of players’ “bloopers.”
And he wrote scripts, often rhyming ones.
