A Home Grown Prospect

Chartz with Jartz -

One of our recent holdings for select portfolios and situations is PPL (shown in the chart above). We decided to incorporate this security in multiple portfolios due to its level of trading activity and because it has been known for playing good "defense" in the past. The defensive aspect comes from PPL's sector, Utilities. Often in a bear market, sectors such as utilities, real estate and health care tend to perform well. PPL is also a "local flavor" as many clients from PA see that name every time they pay their electricity bill. Ultimately, our choice was determined by our technical analysis and the high dividend yield of the stock. Look for more chart analysis from myself in our segment "Chartz with Jartz". - GAME Tracker (Jake)
