The new ValueLine report for PPL is out for this week. Following is the last paragraph summary of the stock:

“Although PPL stock has more than doubled in the past 12 months, it still has attractive prospects. It's ranked 1 (highest) for timeliness. Moreover, we consider 2001 and 2002 estimates conservative. The stocks 3-5 year total return potential seems modest, though, assuming that the company's torrid earnings growth rate slows a bit by then. Finally, with the yield of less than 2% and PPL's indication that the dividend won't be boosted anytime soon, the stock is not recommended for income-oriented investors.”

The 3-5 year projected price appreciation is 70 to 110. Also, out of the 27 eastern utilities covered in this latest Valueline report, PPL is the only one with a 1 timeliness rank.
