Guru Investment Theses on Southern Co

John Rogers Comments on Southern Co - Dec 02, 2015

Utilities firm Southern Co. (NYSE:SO) jumped +7.56% after reporting quarterly earnings that beat expectations and management’s previous guidance. Southern also raised guidance for the third quarter aboveconsensus expectations. The company’s results were primarily driven by growth in customer load (which measures demand in the utilities field) as well as rate increases. We think the company’s fundamental improvement is likely to continue.
