2017-05-25 PAST TOP PICK Douglas Kee

(A Top Pick Jan 20/16. Up 28%.) He is looking for a rate base growth of 5% a year, and a dividend growth comparable to that. They’ve done a great job of expanding into the US, which actually represents over 55% of their revenues.

2017-05-18 COMMENT Matt Kacur

Utilities in Canada, for some reason, are screening better than their US counterparts. As a whole, he cannot think of a Canadian utility that he would not recommend. Return on capital has been very consistent. Valuations are very reasonable. It is getting close to his top of 30% premium to invested capital. 3.5% dividend yield. He likes this one.

2017-05-18 BUY David Cockfield

One of those companies that has a great, long term program that has kept it growing. The dividend has been good. This is one where you could step in and take a position. 3.7% dividend yield.

2017-05-09 COMMENT Lyle Stein

If rates go up, typically utilities underperform. However, if rates are going up because of inflationary pressures, regulators typically raise the rate of return on the underlying assets. They have a big acquisition in the US which left them in good stead. They’ve done a good job in growing dividends and this is a good kind of core holding.

(Top Pick Mar 3/16, Up 19%) They made a nice acquisition.  He has nothing against the company.  He cannot recommend a sell and would be happy to hold it.

2017-05-01 BUY Norman Levine

It pays a nice dividend.  It is one of two growth utilities in Canada.  They have diversified themselves into the US and also in the kind of utility they own.  They raise their dividends on a regular basis.  When interest rates start to go up meaningfully, it won’t participate in the same way.  It should be a part of everyone’s portfolio – either this or EMA-T.

2017-04-28 PAST TOP PICK Michael Sprung

(A Top Pick June 2/16. Up 11%.) Recently did a huge acquisition in the US. He admires their diversification across many regulatory factions. They are now well positioned in the US.

2017-04-24 BUY Peter Brieger

This is a good time to Buy. Fortis, Emera (EMA-T), TransCanada (TRP-T) and Enbridge (ENB-T) have all made major forays into the US. This one made an acquisition of a regulated utility, which is going to give them some good growth opportunities. Looking forward, he can see further increases in activity in the US, and longer-term a dividend growth of around 6%.

2017-04-20 COMMENT Lorne Zeiler

Which utility stock has the best dividend growth profile? He would suggest you look at this one, which recently made a big acquisition in the US. They are paying about 3.6% now, and are committed to growing the dividend at about 5%-6% per year. Earnings are projected to grow at a similar rate. Trading at a reasonable valuation.

2017-04-12 TOP PICK Christine Poole

Closed on ITC Corp last year, a US electric utility. That increases their exposure in the US. She likes this utility, because it is noncyclical and non-commodity-based. Pretty defensive. 90% of cash flow comes from regulated assets. They’ve increased the dividend for 43 consecutive years, and she doesn’t see that changing. She can see it growing 6% annually through 2021. That is important for income stocks in a potential rising rate environment. Has a price target of about 10% upside plus the dividend, giving a total return of about 13%. Dividend yield of 3.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $48.)

2017-04-10 STRONG BUY Gavin Graham

It has been one of the better performs.  You have a wide range of assets geographically.  They have been making US acquisitions.  You have done almost 10% compound total return over the last 5 years.  In terms of risks, you could get regulatory changes affecting the pricing of power, or interest rates could go up a lot higher than people think.

Preferred Series H. Trading at around $16, and got really beat up on the downturn, but recently he has had a nice recovery. He chose this because he thinks rates are slowly going to rise.

The trend channel is up.  Seasonally you get some strength over the summer.  It could pull back to the high $30s.

2017-03-31 PAST TOP PICK Andy Nasr

(Top Pick Mar 30/16, Up 14%) Some of the utilities have not done all that well compared to the broader market, but they serve a purpose in an investor’s portfolio.  He looks at it as a name that is stable with an attractive yield and does what it is supposed to do.  They increased their exposure in the US, as did others in the space.

2017-03-20 COMMENT Jim Huang

Basically an electric utility company. Pretty much all the businesses are regulated. This started as Nova Scotia Power. Lately they have been diversifying into the US. The stock has been flat in the last while because they had to issue a lot of stock to finance acquisitions, but in the medium to long term, those will pay off. If interest rates go up there will be some negative impact, but there should be more than sufficient growth to offset that.
