Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Xcel has raised its dividend every year since 2003, including a 6.6% increase in 2023 to $2.08 per share. We expect similar dividend growth going forward.

Bears

Like all utilities, rising interest rates will raise Xcel's borrowing costs and make its dividend less attractive to income investors.
