China Hydroelectric Corp (CHC): Today's Featured Utilities Loser

The utilities sector closed the day up 1%. Evergreen Energy Inc ( EEE) and American DG Energy Inc ( ADGE) were all decliners today within the utilities sector with China Hydroelectric ( CHC) being today's featured utilities loser. China Hydroelectric fell 7 cents (-4.1%) to $1.64 on light volume. Throughout the day, 8,325 shares of China Hydroelectric exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 19,500 shares.

China Hydroelectric Corporation, through its subsidiaries, engages in the acquisition, ownership, development, and operation of hydroelectric power projects in the People's Republic of China. The company sells electricity to the power grids. China Hydroelectric has a market cap of $86.9 million and is part of the utilities industry. Shares are down 77% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates China Hydroelectric as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

On the positive front, Ocean Power Technologies ( OPTT), Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora No ( EDN), Active Power Inc ( ACPW), and Dynegy Inc ( DYN) were all gainers within the utilities sector with Exelon ( EXC) being today's featured utilities sector winner.

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).
