Top Yielding Water Utilities

I really like water utilities. I've always made money on my water utility investments. Water stocks provide good income diversification along with a portfolio of electric utilities and natural gas utilities. Water utilities provide good yields ranging from 2% to 5%. There are about a dozen water utility stocks with dividends that were turned up by on their water stock list that was just updated. Here are a few examples.

American Water Works Co., Inc. (AWK) PE: 16.5 forward PE: 13.2 PEG: 1.4 yield 4.2%

SJW Corp. (SJW) PE: 26.6 forward PE: 18.4 PEG: 2.1 yield 3.0%

Consolidated Water Co. Ltd. (CWCO) PE: 24.8 forward PE: 13.9 PEG: 0.7 yield 2.6%

To see a list of the rest of the top yielding water stocks, including four that yield more than 4%, which you can download, add to, change, and sort, check out
