Of course one would not expect a very tumultuous ride here, utility companies in general perform very predictable and persistently. The exception may be when takeovers occur.
That being said, they offer a nice investment for anyone with a long term perspective. Finding the right entry point however is the real challenge here as you will not find many sharp declines in this utilities ETF.
