    Water is a daily necessities commodity. The stock water company is the defensive stock. So, investment in the stock of Water Company is a safe investment. Also, in Bangladesh water companies are controlled by the government. So, investment in Water Company is a profitable and safe investment for the long term.

    I would definitely invest in water stocks. Water is an indice in the assessment of the quality of life. However, it would depend on the zone that the company is operating. Areas with water scarcity are prime targets of water companies and their stocks frequently appreciate when a geological survey locates huge underground water deposits and water use intensive companies scramble for their quota. An additional assurance is that water stocks are not likely to fluctuate much in my opinion and are therefore a safe bet.

    Investment in utilities such as water stocks is often seen as a “safe haven” in times of trouble. Long-term capital gain is generally subdued with compensation in the often relatively high dividend yield. Obviously, this will vary from company to company but in the UK this is a summary of the situation.
