Consolidated Edison

The energy services company reported on May 3 first-quarter earnings of $277 million, or 95 cents a a share, down from year-earlier earnings of $311 million, or $1.07.

"We are attracted to ED's low-risk regulated strategy, generally constructive regulatory principles and 4.1% dividend yield," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a report on Monday. "Our Market Perform rating primarily reflects valuation considerations. Shares trade at 10-15% premiums to the Regulated Electric Utility peer group median multiples on our 2013E and 2014E EPS and 4-7% premiums to the Large-Cap Regulated Electrics."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.1%






Aflac

The supplemental health and life insurance company reported on April 24 first-quarter earnings of $785 million, or $1.68 a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $389 million, or 83 cents.

"1Q provided reasons to be more constructive on AFL--the material EPS beat ($0.09 vs. consensus) provided a big head start toward meeting the company's 2012 guidance, and the company has completed 85% of its latest initiative to reduce risk and problem concentrations in the investment portfolio," Keefe, Bruyette & Woods analysts wrote in an April 29 report.
