Utilities Sector

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. Accordingly, utilities offer dividend yields that are much higher than average when compared with the wider market.
