  • Wells Fargo Upgrades American Water Works; Raises PT (AWK)

    Wells Fargo reported on Thursday that it has upgraded water and wastewater utility company, American Water Works Company Inc (AWK) . The firm has raised its rating on AWK from "Market Perform" to "Outperform." Wells Fargo has also increased its valuation range on the company from $41 to $42 to $45 to $46. This range suggests up to a 8% increase from the stock's current price of $42.19. Neil Kalton commented, "we are increasingly confident in AWK's ability to deliver long-term EPS growth of at least the lower-end of mgmt's targeted 7-10% EPS range. While cognizant of AWK's comparatively low dividend yield relative to electrics, we believe the above avg EPS growth more than offset the yield disparity and should lead to attractive total return in excess of 10%." American Water Works shares were up 44 cents, or 1.05% during Thursday morning trading. The stock has increased 23% in the past year. The Bottom Line Shares of American Water Works Company Inc (AWK) have a 2.68% yield, based on Wednesday's closing price of $41.73. American Water Works Company Inc (AWK) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
