AEP Chart AEP data by YCharts

American Electric Power(AEP - Get Report)

Background: American Electric Power is a public utility holding company which owns, directly or indirectly, all of the outstanding common stock of its domestic electric utility subsidiaries and varying percentages of other subsidiaries. Substantially all of the operating revenue of AEP and its subsidiaries is derived from the furnishing of electric service.

The company trades an average of 3.7 million shares per day with a marketcap of $21 billion.

52-Week Range: $35.85 to $43.96

Book Value: $30.95

Yield: 4.32%

American Electric is in a strong bull trend. The moving averages are moving higher and the market is rewarding investors. Trend followers relish this pattern and as the price moves higher, I expect more investors will try to climb on for the ride.

The trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratio is 14, and the mean fiscal year estimate price-to-earnings ratio is 14.3, based on earnings of $3.05 per share this year.

Investors are receiving $1.88 in dividends for a yield of 4.32%. Examining the dividend history of a company is a great way to help understand what we may expect in the future. Of course, the past doesn't guarantee future dividends, but it does paint a useful picture.

The three-year average amount they have distributed to shareholders per year is $1.73. Over the last five years, the dividend has grown by an average of 4.3% per year.

Revenue year-over-year has increased to $15.12 billion in fiscal 2011 year compared to $14.43 billion in the previous year. The last reported short interest is tiny. Short interest is 1.5%.
