NEW YORK, NY, Nov. 27, 2012 -- Senior management from the largest publicly-traded companies in the water utilities industry will present an update about their businesses at the New York Society of Security Analysts' Investing in the Water Utilities Industry Conference on Dec. 6, 2012. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to network during a closing cocktail reception.
Debra Coy from Svanda & Coy Consulting, and Heike Doerr from Robert W. Baird & Co., will provide insight on some of the best investment opportunities in the water industry today.
Publicly-traded water utilities companies have long been favored as steady, long-term investments. The future continues to look bright for these stocks given the world's ever-growing need for clean, safe water and the country's deteriorating water infrastructure which requires an investment of $500 billion through 2019. Water utility stocks provide excellent income diversification, long-term growth and CD-beating yields ranging from 2.5 percent to 4 percent.
Presenting companies include:
- American States Water Company provides water service to 256,000 customers in California and water and wastewater utility services for nine military bases throughout the country
