  • American Water Works: Can Profits Flow? (AWK)

    American Water Works (AWK) has struggled a bit since coming IPO this year. The stock is in a sector that is attracting attention, as concerns over water supplies has some believing that water is the "new oil". We see the stock as an interesting play, but we do not have it on our "Recommended" list as this present time. The company does rely on getting local governments to approve cost increases, so there seems to be a lid on how well profits can grow. Most states are hurting in the current economic slowdown, and they may feel that the consumers may be getting hit hard with everything else, that passing water price increases may be easier said than done. The company does have a dividend yield of 4.00%, based on last night's closing stock price of $20.07. We would like to see how earnings come in over the next quarter to see if the current economic slowdown will continue to weigh on the stock. For investors that need exposure to a water utility, we recently recommended Aqua America (WTR) . Aqua America (WTR) is not a recommended dividend stock at this time, holding a Dividend.com rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
