The Utility folio was developed for investors seeking current income and moderate capital appreciation with lower volatility.
The Utility 5 folio consists of the 5 largest companies primarily engaged in the utility industry. Companies engaged in the utilities industry include those involved in the production, transmission, or distribution of electricity, gas, telecommunications, and other related utility goods and services.
Utility companies are considered defensive since earnings have historically remained relatively stable during both economic upturns and downturns. Utility companies can provide a hedge during periods of substantial volatility.
