  • Otter Tail's Wind-Blown Earnings Drop (OTTR)

    Otter Tail Corp (OTTR) stunned investors today with an earnings shortfall. The stock is getting hit hard in early trading, down about 20%. The company had recently become a wind power energy darling stock play, so some of the "hot" money may be jumping ship. The company cited numerous reasons for the shortfall, including challenges in its manufacturing segment and the impact of a rate case decision in Minnesota. Manufacturing declined due to disappointing results at waterfront equipment manufacturer ShoreMaster and wind tower manufacturer DMI Industries. These manufacturing results are what surprised investors, as the "record demand" apparently was not as big as first expected. In light of this report, we are removing Otter Tail from our "Recommended" dividend stocks list. We would like to see the company prove that it can bounce back from this unexpected shortfall. The company does have a dividend yield of 2.66%, that will surely be substantially higher, as today's stock price drop is not reflected in the price. We feel investors can always get back in when the "wind" is at the company's back, and we'll be sure to keep everyone posted of any turnaround. Otter Tail (OTTR) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com Rating of 3.0 out of 5 stars. Be sure to visit our complete recommended list of the Best Dividend Stocks as well as a detailed explanation of our ratings system here.
