6 Water Utilities With Above-Average Dividend Yields

Julie C - Friday, March 02, 2012

. . . .

Of the 11 publicly traded water utilities, this article will look at six with above-average yields and prospects for moderate to above-average future growth of earnings and dividends. For perspective and comparison, the current yield on the average company as represented by the S&P 500 is 1.9%.

The following table summarizes six water utilities with above-average dividend yields and lists them in order of dividend yield highest to lowest. From left to right, the table shows the company's stock symbol and name. Next, two valuation metrics are listed side-by-side, the current PE ratio followed by the historical normal PE ratio for perspective. Then the five-year estimated earnings per share growth is shown next to each company's historical EPS growth providing a perspective of the past versus the future growth potential of each company. The final three columns show the current dividend yield, the company sector and its market cap.
