We have an opportunity to buy a solid financial stock – NOT in the dangerous banking industry – that pays over a 7% dividend. It is in a growing business and will be entering Europe soon. This is a chance to have a double to triple in total return the next 5 years or so with low risk.
Utilities are priced for perfection and about to enter a heavy capital spend cycle as they build out renewable energy and the smart grid. Buy stocks in companies that utilities will have to spend with. Sustainability does not have to mean higher risk.
