As I look at your list, I wonder why you have both KMB and KMP. For an electrical utility, you might look at Big D, and DUK, both of which have dividends greater than 4%. We DRIP D and add $50/mo to out holdings of DUK (which are small) as well as reinvest dividends and capital gains (if there are any). We have owned D for a couple of decades anyway, and it has more than doubled in price from where we started as well as pay goo and increasing dividends. SO might be another possibility with dividends above 4%. We own some of that also but do not DRIP.
