These 5 rallying water stocks are up for the quarter. Will the trend continue if droughts persist? 

California's water problem isn't going to improve any time soon. Most expect the droughts will continue until El Nino returns this winter and dumps some much-needed rain on the parched Southwest. 

Currently only California has done very much about addressing the persistence of water shortages. 

Among other things, lawmakers have introduced tiered water pricing, charging more for less-than-necessary water use like lawn maintenance. Los Angeles Country has introduced a "cash for grass" program that would pay people to build more sustainable gardens and the like.

As of now the entire state is on emergency water rationing. And those concerns are starting to spread into Nevada, where advertising campaigns aimed at particularly thirsty residents in the south of the state are urging smarter water use.

Many analysts see water plays as one of the most secular growth plays out there. That's because climate change and population growth have already started to put greater pressure on water tables in a trend that few expect to slacken. 

Water utilities, who are expanding their infrastructure to move water from plentiful regions to stressed ones, will benefit most from this trend. We decided to run a screen on water utilities stocks that traded up for the quarter ending in March.
