Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Constructive regulation allows Atmos to adjust customer rates within six months for about 90% of capital investments. This reduces regulatory lag and, combined with customer growth, allows Atmos to earn returns at or above allowed returns.

Bears

Dividend-paying stocks like Atmos are sensitive to interest rates. As interest rates go up, dividend-paying stocks often underperform the broader market.
