Is this then merely a Dividend investment?

You could do a lot worse than a 7% return in this low interest rate environment, which is what the dividend accounts for now and makes the assumption that the stock price is never going to rise.

Exelon has been caught in what could be termed a perfect storm; bad karma for nuclear power and unprecedentedly low natural gas prices. Whether either, or both, proves to be temporary is the issue. You make your choice and take your chances, but often both disparaging views and super-low prices tend to be soften.


Is there a Debt to Revenue, or Debt to Gross Profit, or a Debt to Net Income metric you like to assess?

No.

The most sensible approach, I think, is to think about debt on a case-by-case basis. A useful way to begin to assess debt levels is to look at averages across an industry, thus it would be plain as to whether a company was an outlier in this respect. As noted: Exelon's debt ratio is about average.


By the way the RMS is -3.60 (using BMW Stock Screener) using a start date of Jan 1980.

Yes, anyway you want to look at it, the stock price has taken a beating.
