Sound bite for Twitter and StockTwits is: Dividend Growth Utility. The stock price is reasonable to cheap using the nice procedures of P/B Dividend and Percentage produce. This stock has a long history of yearly dividend increases. Every year since then My spreadsheet goes back to 1993 and they have increased dividends. See my spreadsheet on ATCO Ltd.
I do not own this stock of ATCO Ltd. I started to understand this stock in 2009 2009 since it was a dividend paying stock that was on everyone’s list. At that right time this stock was on the Dividend Achievers list, the Dividend Aristocrats list and was on Mike Higgs’ list.
ATCO (TSX-ACO-X) owns 88% Canadian Utilities (TSX-CU) so you would not buy both these stocks and shares. The dividends are moderate, which I consider in the 2% and 3% range. What I do nothing like is that the Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio is over 1.00. Because of this stock the ratio is 1.62. Which means that the outstanding long-term debt is higher than the stock’s market cap. Unfortunately this is common with energy stocks.
3.04. That is a computer program stock, so P/E Ratio should be on the low side. This stock price tests show that the stock price is expensive relatively. The P/E Ratio is going up because the price is going up but EPS is not. The 5 and 10 12-months growth in EPS is 1% and 5.6% per calendar year.
The stock price has gone up by 8.2% and 5.9% per season over the same intervals. The EPS is expected to develop by 2.7% this year. Up to now the stock price has grown by 0.5% this year. 44.86. This stock price tests suggest that the stock price is fair but above the median relatively. 44.86. The existing P/B Ratio is 6.4% below the 10 12 months median ratio.
This stock price tests suggest that the stock price is relatively realistic and below the median. 44.86. The current dividend yield is some 39% above the historical median dividend produce. This stock price testing suggests that the stock price is cheap relatively. 38.44. The existing P/S Ratio is some 16.8% above the 10-calendar year median.

This stock price assessment suggests that the stock price is relatively affordable but above the median. When I look at experts’ recommendations, I find Buy (1), Hold (3) and Underperform (1). The majority is a Buy and the consensus suggestion is a Buy. Lester Williams on Sky News suggests that this stock may be oversold.
Haris Anwar of Motley Fool recommends this stock for a TFSA. Reid Southwick of Calgary Herald discusses what is occurring in Alberta towns with shutting of coal electric vegetation.
