ITC Holdings Corp. (ITC) is the nation's largest independent transmission company. Shares of ITC climbed in the first quarter in the context of the general outperformance of utilities. The stock also rallied due to increased investor conviction in ITC's long-term growth target of low double-digit growth through the end of the decade. In addition, ITC announced a 3 for 1 stock split. (Rebecca Ellin)
