Utilities Bob as Macro Conditions Change

By Roger S. Conrad, on Mar. 21, 2017

Although the Dow Jones Utility Average initially sold off after Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election, the sector has participated in the broader market rally, levitating despite the prospect of higher interest rates.

This basket of 15 utility stocks has returned more than 10 percent since early December 2016, outperforming the S&P 500 by a few percentage points. It’s now reached valuations where the risk-reward balance skews to the downside.

In this environment, investors should evaluate the macro forces that could bat these stocks about in coming months.
