News about Mueller Water Products

New York, New York - November 8, 2012 ( newswire, editor:, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors reports on investing in water stocks following Hurricane Sandy and the recent election results.

From infrastructure to desalination, there is ample opportunity for long term growth in the water sector, no matter what political party is in office . Water is truly the next oil as advocates of the sector proclaim, and as the stock market adjusts to four more years of Obama, no one can deny the importance of water in our lives.

Investor Ideas is a long term advocate of investing in water stocks and is one of the few sites covering the sector for retail investors. As the global economies are faced with the devastating results of drought and hurricanes, it becomes self evident to any astute investor, as Neil Berlant states " that water is a very inefficiently followed sector in the equity markets."

So what is it going to take for investors on all levels to take this sector seriously, and what stocks are worth consideration? turns to its long term expert in the sector to give insight as to the stocks to pay attention and what to make note of. In a recent interview with Bloomberg Neil discusses General Electric (NYSE: GE), Calgon Carbon (NYSE: CCC), Mueller Water Products (NYSE: MWA), Energy Recovery (NasdaqGS: ERII ) and Xylem (NYSE: XYL).

In recent notes to his investors Neil Berlant shares: "With no desire to trivialize the magnitude and scope of Hurricane Sandy, there are several aspects of this event that are worth noting. To begin with, for sure the horrific winds wrought havoc of immense proportion, but the winds pale alongside of the impact of the water. The enormous waves and surge, the flooding, and the torrential rain was of epic proportion. One must not underestimate, or fail to appreciate, the awesome power of water!

Indeed, as you well know, water is my focus and passion. More important, the impact and image of Sandy should impress on everyone that water should be valued respected and valued more than it usually is. As we tally up the cost of this natural disaster, reflect on the role water plays on our lives on a daily basis.

My goal, with this brief note, is that you recognize and appreciate, in one more way, the often overlooked value and importance of water. As I define the water industry, all things that influence the quality and availability of water, the impact and consequence of this epic event represents not only a tragedy, but also an extraordinary business and investment opportunity for the water industry. For the many companies that produce, market, and service pumps, filtration equipment, piping, dewatering, and countless other water-related areas, this tragic event represents a potential business bonanza."
