3 Reasons to Buy Exelon Today

Exelon (NYSE: EXC  ) is a dominant force among the nation's utilities companies. In this video, Motley Fool energy analyst Taylor Muckerman gives us three reasons why he sees it as a buy. The company is widely diversified in the sources of the energy it provides, and because such a low percentage of that energy comes from coal and a high percentage comes from nuclear, Exelon is particularly insulated against federal EPA regulations on emissions standards. This means it can reliably provide a strong base load power supply from its world-class nuclear fleet with little to no threat to that industry. As well, Exelon is a dividend leader among its peers.

As the nation moves increasingly toward clean energy, one company in this space that is perfectly positioned to capitalize on having the largest nuclear fleet in North America is Exelon. This strength combined with an increased focus on renewable energy, along with its recent merger with Constellation, puts Exelon and its best-in-class dividend on a short list of top utilities. To determine if Exelon is a good long-term fit for your portfolio, you're invited to check out The Motley Fool's premium research report on the company. Simply click here now for instant access.
