I have been buying D regularly for the past three years. I like the trend in the natural gas business of simply becoming the distributor, rather than taking a stake in the commodity pricing and allowing others to buy and sell the gas to consumers (where allowed.)

I also like the long term population trends - increasing - for the southeast where most of D's holdings are in.

Aside from those two differentiators, I don't really dig too deep to differentiate D from other utilities.

The dividend payout is high in comparison to the industry right now, though. http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/ratios?symbol=D.N&...
I would watch that ratio for awhile if you are comparing other utilities.

However, I am happy with my investment so far, especially as I reinvest the dividends.
