February 28, 2013

LONDON, February 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

An unusually warm winter in the U.S. in 2012 had a negative impact on electricity and
gas demand, which in turn hit the bottom-line of most U.S. utilities. Electric utilities
such as PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), Pepco Holdings Inc. (NYSE: POM), Xcel Energy Inc.
(NYSE: XEL) and PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) will be hoping for a more normal winter this
year. Utilities was one of the worst performing sectors in 2012, after posting significant
gains in 2013. However, the outlook for Utilities has improved in 2013. On Wednesday, most
utilities rose, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall reviewed the solar industry
and chose PPL, POM, XEL and PCG for its technical coverage. These free reports can be seen
