EXC is the red headed step child of the Utilities lately.

I've been holding some EXC for the dividend and am thinking about adding to that position on this most recent pullback. The chart is ugly but that 5.86% dividend is hard to ignore.

There's some recent, thin support, just below this level. Yeah, that's pretty weak sauce but it's taken a beating and the mood seems to be generally unfavorable -- as if one of the largest power utilities is just going to dry up and blow away or something. /heh/


Raised some cash last couple weeks and have WM, INTC and EXC on the top of my short list for possible increase of existing divi positions. Been way too busy to get my head settled/focused so I'm cooling my jets till I get a bit of quiet.
