On CAPS, 711 of the 746 members who have rated Exelon -- or 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star OtherOracleOfOMA, who is ranked in the top 0.5% of our community, and Martel13.

In March, OtherOracleOfOMA tapped Exelon as an excellent play on pollution control: "Solid value. As one of the more nuke-heavy utilities [along with Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK)], [Exelon] will benefit significantly from cap-and-trade legislation, the passage of which is a certainty."

In a pitch from three weeks later, Martel13 expands on Exelon's atomic potential:

Exelon has a lot of nuclear power experience, and their plant management is very good. Going into the future, coal plants will be a tough sell as "clean coal" is 10-15 years away at best, new dams are unlikely to be built, and solar/wind power won't be able to meet more than a small portion of [America's] power needs for a long time to come. Combined with the new nuclear reactor design available from Westinghouse Electric … I think that Exelon will be well positioned to take advantage of an increasing population ever more gadgets requiring electricity.
