LONDON, February 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

An unusually warm winter in the U.S. in 2012 had a negative impact on
electricity and gas demand, which in turn hit the bottom-line of most U.S.
utilities. Electric utilities such as PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), Pepco
Holdings Inc. (NYSE: POM), Xcel Energy Inc. (NYSE: XEL) and PG&E Corporation
(NYSE: PCG) will be hoping for a more normal winter this year. Utilities was
one of the worst performing sectors in 2012, after posting significant gains
in 2013. However, the outlook for Utilities has improved in 2013. On
Wednesday, most utilities rose, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall
reviewed the solar industry and chose PPL, POM, XEL and PCG for its technical
coverage. These free reports can be seen for free at
