Why Connecticut Water Service (CTWS) Stock Is Up Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Connecticut Water Service Inc. (CTWS - Get Report) are higher by 1.55% to $32.15 in mid-afternoon trading on Monday, after the company reported an increase in net income to $7.5 million, or 69 cents per share for the 2014 second quarter, compared to $4.3 million, or 40 cents per share for the year ago period.

Connecticut Water attributes its increase in earnings to the application of the water revenue adjustment, which allows the company “to reconcile actual water demands with the demands projected in the last general rate case through a rate adjustment,” the company said.

The company, which works to deliver high-quality drinking water to its customers, said total revenue grew to $27.2 million for the most recent quarter, from $24.3 million for the 2013 second quarter.
