Duke Energy is trading about 4% below its 52 week high reached on July 2. Since the beginning of 2013, the stock has been on a tear. Waiting for this one to pullback a point or two would be smart, but anywhere below $70 is still cheap. Duke Energy has the potential to trade above $80 in 2013 based on 18.5 times earnings. I am initiating an outperform on Duke on CAPS. Duke Energy, Southern Company, American Electric, and PG&E are all screaming BUYS, but Duke Energy is my favorite in the space.
