StockCall Scrutinizes Ameren, Just Energy, Great Plains Energy, and DTE Energy

LONDON, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Utilities are expected to see a sharp increase in costs this year as they boost capital spending to improve their existing infrastructure. Utilities are also required to meet new environmental regulations, which will further increase costs. Meanwhile, utilities will be hoping for a return to more normal weather pattern in 2013. Electric utilities, however, will continue to benefit from a sharp drop in natural gas prices. Natural gas prices dropped to record low levels in 2012, thanks to the shale boom in the U.S. The sharp decline in prices led several electric utilities to switch from coal to natural gas for power generation. Utilities ended mostly higher on Thursday even as the broad market struggled. Among the major movers were Ameren Corp. (NYSE: AEE), Just Energy Group Inc. (NYSE: JE), Great Plains Energy Incorporated (NYSE: GXP), and DTE Energy Co. (NYSE: DTE). StockCall reviewed the Utilities sector and chose AEE, JE, GXP, and DTE for its technical coverage.
