PR Newswire

LONDON, April 19, 2013

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. These free reports can be seen for free at
