Comparing Southern Company’s Returns with Its Peers

Southern Company’s total returns

Southern Company’s (SO) total returns lagged behind that of peers in the last one year mainly due to its falling stock. Its dividends, however, healthily contributed to its total returns. The Georgia-based utility’s returns including dividends came in at -0.7% in the last one year. In the same period, the Utilities Select Sector SPDR (XLU) returned 14%, while broader markets returned 15%.

Southern Company’s peer Duke Energy (DUK) returned more than 12% in the last one year. Stable stock price movement and decent dividend growth contributed to its relatively better total returns.
