An electrical utility company, generating electricity. You are not going to get a massive up-spike in that kind of company. You will get great and stable income as well as growth over the longer-term. Has been very successful in going into the US and buying assets. Extremely well-managed. They raise their dividend consistently.

2017-09-19 COMMENT Nick Majendie

He likes this very much. They’ve done a great job in making acquisitions in the US. This is one of the dividend aristocrats of Canada. Thinks they’ve increased dividends 42 years in a row. It is not all that expensive, and is a great, long term investment.

2017-09-13 TOP PICK Michael Sprung

One of his favourite utilities. Has a large US presence. A big part of their M&A growth is behind them. They made 2 major acquisitions in the last few years, one of them being in Texas, so capital expenditures might be going up a little in the near term. They are much more into energy transmission as well as generation. Dividend yield of 3.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $50.)

2017-09-08 COMMENT Don Vialoux

Historically this had a very strong seasonality during the summer as the rest of the market languished. It only does very well until the beginning of November. Chart shows it has already established an upward trend, and it would be nice to see it move above its current level, which would confirm that it is in an upward trend. A good seasonal trade right through until the beginning of November.

2017-09-07 STRONG BUY Michael Simpson, CFA

Rising interest rates traditionally have a negative impact on them, but they have the longest streak on the TSX of raising their dividend.  It negates some of the small rise in interest rates.  They have some non-regulated assets.  He likes it and it is a core holding for him.

(Market Call Minute.) Utilities are fine to own. You just have to be cognizant of the risk of rising interest rates.

He likes it and it is well managed.  You need a company that is going to grow its dividend.  It is a growth/yield play.

2017-08-16 PAST TOP PICK Christine Poole

(A Top Pick Aug 16/16. Up 12.58%.) Continues to like this. It has held up well relative to a lot of other interest sensitive names. She likes the US acquisition they did earlier on. Dividend yield of about 3.5%.

2017-08-11 BUY David Cockfield

Has been under some pressure as the market anticipates rising interest rates. Thinks the market is overreacting and interest rates are going to stay relatively low, because inflation is not rearing its head. On that basis, it is probably not a bad Buy in this range. Well run, and one of the more growth oriented utilities. You should be buying this for the safe dividend.

2017-08-04 HOLD Don Vialoux

Utility oriented stocks tend to do very well in the summer. This had a good move this year, but is now having some difficulty. On a seasonal basis, it is okay to hold. Historically when you get into the fall, you want to choose something that has more beta. For now stick with it, but if there’s any kind of technical rolling over, then look for better opportunities elsewhere.

2017-07-26 BUY David Cockfield

A good utility. Feels interest rates are going to increase, but at a relatively slow rate. If you want a good, solid dividend paying stock, and a management that has been good in its takeovers, this one does a great job. They tend to increase dividends and revenues at a steady rate.

2017-07-21 TOP PICK Ross Healy

Relatively cheap and trading at about 1.25X BV, which is about as low as the company gets. Not a bad dividend of 3.6% and nice upside potential of about 25% for a utility. It should be clear to about $51. (Analysts’ price target is $50.)

2017-07-21 COMMENT Michael Sprung

Well-managed. Made a large Texas acquisition a few years back which turned out very well. Then they bought the transmission assets. They have a good growth pattern ahead. You are buying a lot of US exposure now. He thinks they are in a good place at a good time. The stock has performed very well.

2017-07-12 DON'T BUY Brian Madden

This is a stock he would steer clear of. The economy is strengthening, so there is the expectation that interest rates are going to rise. Anything that investors have been treating as bond proxies or surrogates for income, is vulnerable to government bond yields going higher. Sees better opportunities in pipelines.

2017-07-06 HOLD Jim Huang

With all the big acquisitions in North America, it is very stable and safe, with a dividend growth. Their earnings growth and dividend growth last year were very impressive. A lot of that came from acquisitions. This is clearly a core holding for income investors. The risk is if interest rates go a lot higher, everybody is going to hurt, including this company. But this is worth holding even in that situation.
