E CenterPoint Delivers Gas, Electric & Energy Services

This week I'm seeking the one and only dividend-paying stock from the utilities business sector for my Ivy portfolio. 

That utilities sector has five industries including diversified, independent, regulated electric, regulated gas, and regulated water. 

Today I'm reviewing a Large-cap regulated gas company, named CenterPoint Energy Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is CNP.

CenterPoint Energy Inc owns and operates a portfolio of energy-related businesses. The company primarily provides transmission and distribution services and has natural gas distribution systems in the United States.

However, it also supplies electric energy. As of December 31, 2017, this segment owned 28,883 pole miles of overhead distribution lines and 24,662 circuit miles of underground distribution lines; and 235 substations with a transformer capacity of 64,924 megavolt amperes, as well as operated 14 regional service centers. 

Its Natural Gas Distribution segment sells regulated intrastate natural gas; provides natural gas transportation and storage services for residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation customers; and offers unregulated services comprising residential appliance repair and maintenance services. As of December 31, 2017, this segment owned approximately 75,000 linear miles of natural gas distribution mains. 

The company's Energy Services segment provides physical natural gas supplies primarily to commercial and industrial customers, and electric and natural gas utilities; natural gas management services; and physical delivery services, as well as procures and optimizes transportation and storage assets. This segment owns and operates approximately 200 miles of intrastate pipelines; and leases transportation capacity on various interstate and intrastate pipelines, and storage. 

Its Midstream Investments segment offers natural gas and crude oil gathering, and natural gas processing services to its producer customers; and interstate and intrastate natural gas pipeline transportation and storage services to its producer, power plant, local distribution company, and industrial end-user customers.
