“We’ve made great advances in eliminating ignorance and superstition in medicine and in weather reports, we laugh at our ancestors for blaming bad harvests on corn gods, and we wonder, 'How could a smart man like Pythagoras think that evil spirits hide in rumpled bedsheets?' However, we’re perfectly willing to believe that who wins the Super Bowl might have something to do with stock prices.”

I have had several readers request I do an article on AT&T Inc. (T). Since the company has just reported earnings, which have thus far received a strong and positive reaction from Wall Street, I thought now would be a good time.

The utilities sector is well known for housing conservative, high-yield dividend investments.
Like many industries, it is most well known for its largest constituents. Names like Southern CompanyÂ (SO), Duke EnergyÂ (DUK) and Consolidated EdisonÂ (ED) are generally familiar names among dividend growth investors.
The utility industry also harbors many smaller, less familiar companies. Because they are less well followed, they may create asset mispricings – or buying opportunities for opportunistic investors.
South Jersey Industries (SJI) could be an example of a smaller utility with investment appeal. With a market capitalization of $2.6

Southern has raised its dividend for 15 years in a row. It is a Dividend Achiever, a group of 272 stocks with at least 10 years of consecutive dividend increases.

When it comes to high-yield dividend stocks, regulated utilities are a favorite among conservative investors living off dividends in retirement and for good reason.
They usually offer generous, secure and consistently (albeit slowly) growing yields as well as some of the lowest volatility you can find in the stock market.
But nearly a decade of record low interest rates has resulted in yield-starved investors plowing money into the sector, searching for quality bond alternatives.
This has resulted in a precarious position for value-focused investors with unattractive valuations threatening to result in years of poorer performance for the utilities sector

This is the first entry in the 50 part "Dividend Aristocrats in Focus" series. What is a Dividend Aristocrat?
Dividend Aristocrats are businesses that meet the following criteria:
- Members of the S&P 500
- 25+ years of consecutive dividend increases

For a business to pay increasing dividends for 25+ consecutive years, it must possess a strong and durable competitive advantage and a shareholder friendly management that emphasizes dividend payments.
I never invest in a common stock without a clear expectation of the future returns that it can generate for me. Consequently, I consider this one of the most important steps in my research and due diligence process. Unfortunately, my experience in dealing with investors has led me to conclude that this important step is rarely taken. Most investors possess only a vague idea of what they might earn from investing in a given stock. Many people simply buy a stock hoping that it will go up, and if it pays a dividend, hopeful that the dividend will increase
