Today, I scooped up another 50 shares of Exelon EXC, with the primary purpose of adding fixed income exposure. Investing in this security has risk exposures that are bond-like in nature since the company is a stable utility and consistent dividend payer. Exelon is the country’s largest nuclear generator, which is a huge operating advantage. The recent Constellation acquisition adds scale, further solidifying its business.
Exelon is one my best choices right now and is among the best-of-breed in the utilities industry. Recent Stong Buy reiterations from S&P, along with a juicy 5.7% dividend add to the stock’s current attractiveness.
My most previous purchase of 70 shares was in March 2012. Total shares now held is 150.
|Current value||EXC 150||$ 5,535.00|
