Utilities


The utilities sector includes companies that provide services like electricity, gas and water. This sector also includes companies that provide integrated utility services. Such companies include Exelon (EXC), NextEra Energy (NEE) and York Water Co. (YORW). Like health care, the utility sector is non-cyclical as consumers need gas and electricity during all phases of the economic cycle. Although utility companies may require high capital, which may increase company debt, utility companies usually still offer reliable dividends.
