Utilities companies offer electric, gas and water utilities for individuals and businesses. Utilities are some of the most heavily regulated companies and operate in specific regional markets. These firms are generally long-established, stable entities with little opportunity for growth and, as a result, choose to pay out large percentages of their earnings via dividends.

If you’re looking to invest in utilities stocks, you may also be interested in utilities exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These funds offer a diversified basket of utilities stock holdings. They are investment structures which are traded on stock exchanges, similar to equities. They’re also similar to mutual funds in that they hold securities of many companies.

3 Reasons to Invest in Utilities ETFs:

  • ETFs offer lower fees when compared to other investment funds and vehicles, such as mutual funds.
  • They provide diversification in the basket of utilities stock holdings in the ETF, which lowers portfolio market risk.
  • It’s easy to gain exposure to many utilities stocks with just one vehicle (ETF).

Whereas, if you’re interested in investing in individual utilities stocks, check out the tables below.
