Wisconsin Energy

The steam and electric energy company reported on May 1 first-quarter net income from continuing operations of $172.1 million, or 74 cents a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $170.9 million, or 72 cents.

"We are raising our price objective to $36 from $35, which is a 10% premium to the regulated peer group," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a May 3 report. "In our view, this premium is warranted given WEC's solid earnings and dividend growth outlook, free cash flow generation, and strong track record. As the stock already trades at a 10% premium to the group, we are maintaining our Neutral rating."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.3%

Rockwell Automation

The industrial automation power company reported second-quarter earnings on April 25 of $167.8 million, or $1.16 a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $166.4 million, or $1.14.

"After YTD underperformance, shares now trade at parity to the group and are not expensive," JPMorgan analysts wrote in an April 26 report. "Stepping back, however, FY12 likely ends up with about 10% EPS growth on 7-8% organic growth, neither of which is likely to accelerate in FY13. In the meantime, macro risk is above average, and we struggle to identify the catalyst for multiple expansion."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.2%
