American Water Works Co Inc (AWK): Today's Featured Utilities Loser

American Water Works ( AWK) pushed the Utilities sector lower today making it today's featured Utilities loser. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.3%. By the end of trading, American Water Works fell 34 cents (-1%) to $34.24 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1.2 million shares of American Water Works exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 879,200 shares. The stock ranged in price between $34.04-$34.55 after having opened the day at $34.48 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $34.58. Other company's within the Utilities sector that declined today were: GreenHunter Energy ( GRH), down 9.1%, Pure Cycle Corporation ( PCYO), down 8.4%, China Hydroelectric Corporation ( CHC), down 3.3%, and Ellomay Capital ( ELLO), down 3.1%.

American Water Works Company, Inc., through its subsidiaries, provides water and wastewater services to residential, commercial, industrial, public, and other customers in the United States and Canada. American Water Works has a market cap of $6.03 billion and is part of the utilities industry. Currently there are 11 analysts that rate American Water Works a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and three rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates American Water Works as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated.

On the positive front, Distribution and Marketing Company of the N ( EDN), up 16%, Transportadora de Gas del Sur ( TGS), up 10%, Dynegy ( DYN), up 4.5%, and Niska Gas Storage Partners ( NKA), up 3.3%, were all gainers within the utilities sector with EQT ( EQT) 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).
