How to Dip Into Clean Water Stocks

Forecast One-Month Return (%); Red is percent lower, Black is percent higher.

Forecast One-Year Return (%): Red is percent lower. Black is percent higher. The water stocks projected to gain more than 10% over the next 12 months are: Artesian Resource Company (ARTNA - Get Report), American States Water Co. (AWR - Get Report), Connecticut Water Service (CTWS), Consolidated Water Co. (CWCO - Get Report) and SJW Corp. (SJW).

Price-to-Earnings Ratios: N/A means that the ValuEngine data sources could not provide a P/E ratio. You might with to eliminate from the list CTWS and SJW. They have P/E ration of more than 24.

Let's profile ARTNA, AWR, and CWCO to see which classify as candidates for your portfolio to represent a play on clean water for all.

ARTNA has been a light-volume trader so far this year between $18.20 and $19.70, so it would not be my first choice.

AWR has somewhat more volume but is trading just below $39.61, its highest level since April 2010.

CWCO has volume comparable to AWR, but CWCO is poised to challenge its 200-day simple moving average at $8.14. CWCO is the only stock with a Strong Buy rating and has been the worst performer over the past twelve months. Let's look for value levels and risky levels; My weekly value level is $7.58 with this month's risky level at $8.25. Above is potential to my annual risky level at $14.29.

From "Consolidated Water Co. Ltd. intends to develop and operate seawater conversion plants and water distribution systems in areas of the world where naturally-occurring supplies of potable water are scarce or nonexistent. It currently operates a public water utility in certain areas of the Cayman Islands under a 20-year exclusive license from the Government of the Cayman Islands.
