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.

2017-06-28 WAIT Jon Vialoux

Utility stocks tend to do better in the summer. They are more defensive and have a higher yield. Seasonal strength is from about now all the way through to September. The chart indicates it is getting closer to the upper limit of the shorter-term trend channel. It is also getting close to the upper limit of the longer-term trend channel. Utility stocks are not showing the momentum that you would normally expect moving forward. He would stay away from this right now. Wait until it comes back to some of its major moving averages and level of support of about $45.

2017-06-28 COMMENT Jason Mann

Great price momentum, but poor valuation. A utility, trading at low ROE, high EV to EBITDA, high PE. Buyers typically hold a stock like this for stability and for its yield. On those 2 measures, it has both.

2017-06-27 COMMENT Lyle Stein

Because this has had a steady increase in their dividend year after year, the stock has been climbing. As interest rates go down, stocks go up. One of the premier electric utilities to own. Dividend yield of 3.4%.

2017-06-27 COMMENT Ryan Bushell

Emera (EMA-T) Fortis (FTS-T) or Algonquin (AQN-T)? A space where there has been a lot of upward pressure this year, so it is very hard to find bargains. Of the larger utilities, he thinks Emera is the best price and has the best dividend yield, so is the one he would probably look at. Fortis is his largest position.

2017-06-21 PAST TOP PICK Andy Nasr

(A Top Pick March 30/16. Up 18%.) A very high-quality utility. By putting this in your portfolio, you are actually getting a very defensive business. Recently made a large acquisition in the US, which should be accretive to earnings. Cash flow growth should continue to materialize, especially given that a lot of its earnings come from regulated utilities. Thinks there is still 10%-15% upside in the name.

2017-06-20 COMMENT David Burrows

A great company, but utilities are not his favourite space. If you think the economy is getting better, it is not the most economically sensitive group. However, if you think rates are going higher slowly over time, then you need to be able to find a dividend stream that will grow a little every year. Although this company is not a rocket ship, it has probably had the best record in Canada for dividend growth. A good mix between regulated utilities and non-regulated.

2017-06-15 BUY on WEAKNESS Christine Poole

She added it a year to a year and half ago.  Electrical utility are very stable.  They acquired a gas utility in the US last year and it really expanded their exposure.  They create a rising stream of dividends.  3.6% yield, a safe heaven.  She would still hold it or scale into the stock.

2017-06-12 WATCH Keith Richards

It is in a 3 year uptrend and looks like it recently broke out of a level of resistance.  The breakouts are very bullish.  It could pull back to old resistance.  He can’t give a target at this point.  If it pulled back a buck or so he would probably jump on it.

2017-05-31 HOLD Michael Simpson, CFA

An extremely well-managed company with assets in Canada and the US. A utility with electrical generation and transmission. They recently bought a dam in BC. Have grown their dividend in the last 43 years, so he would expect more dividend growth.

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.
