Guru stock highlight

Besides adding JAMF, the Fund took a small position in Madison, Wisconsin-based Alliant Energy (LNT), a company we've followed closely for years. We had always judged LNT as too expensive while investors were drawn to the Utility sector's dividend yield and growth prospects. With that sector underperforming significantly this year, we took the opportunity to start a position. Growth should come as Alliant expands its rate base while adopting renewable energy solutions.

The company's history suggests shares are overpriced

With a market cap over $8 billion, Alliant Energy (LNT) supplies electricity, gas and other services in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. The company sports a strong balance sheet and has paid a steady dividend over many years. So what is the problem?

To gain a more complete understanding of the Alliant Energy price-to-valuation relationship, let’s review the company from several valuation perspectives.

Some investors love utilities, others hate them. I am somewhere in the middle. I never invested money into the utility sector because I know that strong growth is nearly impossible at low investment cots. So you should not get a quick big return. The only chance to make a little money is with time-optimized stock trading. But that's too complicated for me and means hard work. I love to buy some high-quality growth stocks to receive the dividends without keeping an eye on anything and having fun with my life. The good thing on utilities is that they generate stable

[url=]Warren Buffett[/url] describes the stock market’s short term fluctuations as a voting machine, by tallying up which firms are popular and which are not. However, in the long-term the market is a weighting machine, where the fundamental strength of the companies is being evaluated.
