Basic Sanitation Company Of The State Of Sa (SBS): Today's Featured Utilities Winner

The utilities sector closed the day down 2.9%. American DG Energy Inc ( ADGE) and Delta Natural Gas Company ( DGAS) were all winners today within the utilities sector with Basic Sanitation Company of the State of Sa ( SBS) being today's featured utilities winner. Basic Sanitation Company of the State of Sa rose 50 cents (1.1%) to $46.85 on average volume. Throughout the day, 335,464 shares of Basic Sanitation Company of the State of Sa exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 262,100 shares.

Companhia de Saneamento Basico do Estado de Sao Paulo provides basic and environmental sanitation services and sewage treatment services, as well as supplies treated water in the state of Sao Paulo. Basic Sanitation Company of the State of Sa has a market cap of $5.4 billion and is part of the utilities industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 10.3, above the average utilities industry P/E ratio of 5.9 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 12.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Basic Sanitation Company of the State of Sa as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, robust revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, weak operating cash flow and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

On the negative front, Dynegy Inc ( DYN), Beacon Power ( BCON), Ocean Power Technologies ( OPTT), and U.S. Geothermal Inc ( HTM) were all losers within the utilities sector with FirstEnergy ( FE) being today's utilities sector Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the utilities sector could consider Utilities Select Sector SPDR ( XLU) while those bearish on the utilities sector could consider ProShares UltraShort Utilities ( SDP).
