20 Top Yielding Electic Utilites With Sustainable Dividend Payouts For Growth

Well-managed electric utilities are excellent candidates for a dividend reinvestment portfolio. Typically, electric utilities generate lots of excess cash and pay it out as dividends to shareholders.

But not all utilities are equal. Some pay high amounts of their net income to shareholders in form of dividends, other only a small part. Be very wary of stocks with high dividend yields and high payout ratios. They are not sustainable and increase the debt level of the company over the long-term.

I'm looking for those utilities with low dividend payouts in order to get sustainable dividend payments over years that might grow, year over year for decades.

Attached you can find a detailed list of 20 electric utilities that might give investors a small hedge due to a solid dividend growth history and sustainable dividend payouts.

These are the 4 top yielding results in detail...
