With a lot of the US water infrastructure in need of modernization, AWK is in a good place for future growth, which makes it a good stock to invest in, but the issue is it looks like too many investors already know about this. This makes the stock overpriced with a price-to-earnings ratio of over 30, which is pretty high even for tech companies, let alone for public utilities.
