Morning Research on Exelon, CenterPoint Energy, Public Service Enterprise, and PNM Resources

LONDON, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Utilities are expected to see an increase in capital spending over the next few years as they look to improve their existing infrastructure. Costs are also expected to rise as utilities implement measures to meet new environmental regulations. One positive for utilities, however, has been a sharp decline in natural gas prices. Several electric utilities have switched from coal to natural gas to generate electricity over the past year as prices of natural gas have fallen sharply. Utilities sector ended mostly lower in Wednesday's trading session, tracking losses in the broad market. Among the major movers in the sector included Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC), CenterPoint Energy Inc. (NYSE: CNP), Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. (NYSE: PEG), and PNM Resources Inc. (NYSE: PNM), all of which belong to the diversified utilities industry. StockCall has posted free technical research reports on EXC, CNP, PEG, and PNM and these can be accessed by signing up at
