Southern Company is an Atlanta based company that supplies energy to over 4.4 million customers and supplies over 42,000 megawatts of power to these customers. Southern Company is a good long term investment as it does pay out a quarterly dividend which is equal to $1.96/share a year. At the right stock price Southern Company is something you should add to your portfolio. I would say my buy price for Southern Company would be in the 41 to 43 dollar range. I am a long term dividend investor and will be looking to add a position in SO as soon as it is a favorable position.
