11 Utility Stocks You Can't Afford to Ignore

Utility stocks have been on fire this year, up 11.9% so far. Not even the high flying energy sector has gained as much (+10.5%). As a result, this often forgotten group certainly deserves attention from investors.

We decided to hand pick utility stocks that are:

  1. In steady uptrends for at least 2-3 years. They are trading near their highs
  2. Have good dividend yields
  3. Are all rated as Strong Buys by our Rating system
