3 Undervalued Utilities for Dividend-Seekers
Dominion Energy, Duke Energy, and Southern Company are attractively priced and offer good total return prospects.
Travis Miller: With the rise in interest rates in the last couple of months, the utilities sector is now open for stock-pickers. There are several utilities trading at 20% discounts, but all of them face challenges. We now think on the high-quality side there are three that offer good value for investors, especially those looking for dividends.
One of those is Dominion Energy. It trades at a 15% discount to our fair value estimate and a 4.5% yield. With good growth we think this is an attractive total return, especially with interest rates still low.
