Just last week, one of those Fools, TMFJLo, succinctly summed up the Exelon bull case for our community:

Nuclear [prissiness], fiscal cliff fears, and macro woes have knocked this stock price down. I like its wind energy portfolio, its smart grid technology adoption, its regulatory environment, and its scale. Plus, bullish on utilities overall.
