Gas, water and electricity companies make up the utility sector. Despite the mundane reputation it's an interesting group of businesses. Sure, the sales growth is slow, demand is inelastic, investors are focusing on dividends etc. but in the past decade, deregulation has allowed the regional differences between the energy companies to increase dramatically. This is a very useful book as it will give the reader good insights into the sector. There have been previous reviews of the Fisher Investments on - series on EQTBooks.com and the structure of this text is exactly identical. In this review I thought I would concentrate on part three of the book called "Thinking Like a Portfolio Manager". This part is common for all the books in the series and gives readers advice on how to invest in the various sectors' shares based on something called "The Top-Down Method". Apart from being a tutorial on the basics of sectors, does the series give good advice on how to invest?
