Stocks in Utilities

Companies in the Utilities sector provide basic commodities such as electricity and water to businesses and consumers. Unlike companies in the Basic Materials sector, Utilities sell the commodities directly, rather than mining or refining them. Due to government regulation of utility prices, the stocks in this sector tend to be stable. They also tend to be unspectacular in growth times. This regulation makes predicting the behavior of these companies tricky.

Every stock sector groups stocks related by a particular type of industry. This allows you to compare businesses of similar types. For example, stocks of mining companies are more similar than they are to stocks of financial companies. Even though there are differences between companies within a sector, the performance of a stock relative to its sector as a whole can give you interesting information.
