By the end of trading, Exelon fell $0.56 (-1.8%) to $30.32 on average volume.

Exelon Corporation, a utility services holding company, engages in the energy generation and distribution business in the United States. Exelon has a market cap of $26.6 billion and is part of the utilities industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 27.2, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 3.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are 2 analysts that rate Exelon a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 15 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Exelon as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

On the positive front, Cadiz ( CDZI), up 12.4%, Fuelcell Energy ( FCEL), up 7.8%, GreenHunter Resources ( GRH), up 7.5% and Pure Cycle Corporation ( PCYO), up 7.2%.

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).
