They do share buybacks, but TRP is a step behind its peer, Enbridge which has a stronger capital structure (i.e. discontinued its DRIP). With their growth projects, they're not out of the woods just yet. Buy Enbridge instead. Also, it's so difficult to build a pipeline in Canada.

(A Top Pick Jan 11/18, Down 0.1%) Increased dividend by 8 or 9%. Keystone is the wildcard, and explains why stock hasn't moved. Price will start to move if it gets approved. For utilities, it's all about rate-based growth and they can start to increase profitability. Yield is 5.2% with close to 10% increases.

She prefers to own ENB-T, but thinks this stock will do well. The dividend is safe. But it is getting more difficult to build pipelines. There is no compelling reason to shift over just yet.

The energy space was tough last year. This has been rising since September, relative to the energy space. It has performed well through the recovery. Nice dividend, growing at about 6% annually. If you took at three year period in the market it will under-perform but be more stable.

ENB vs. Transcanada Apart from one hiccup (it cut its dividend once in the 90s), Transcanada has performed very well. It's a low-risk business with 95% of its revenues regulated or on long-term contracts. They plan to spend $28 billion on new growth projects and fund it with existing cash flow. They can also grow their dividend 8-10% annually for the next three years. As growth projects come to play, maybe their earning will ramp up again.

One of largest pipeline companies in North America. Both US and Canadian assets. Even without Keystone, it will do well, and the dividend should go up. Good place to be in a tumultuous market. Yield is 5.1%. (Analysts’ price target is $62.93)

TRP vs. IPL. He'd go with IPL. The yield is higher. TRP probably has the prospect of a couple of dividend hikes in the next year or two. Whereas hikes at IPL will probably be on hold because of capital expenditures. Quality of IPL assets is unassailable, and the new plant will be meaningfully accretive to their operating earnings when it comes online in 2021. Rebranding is to appeal to its global shareholder base.

It's a yield play. It's difficult to see a scenario for meaningful growth without the approval of future pipelines. Prefers the utilities because unlike the pipelines he does see some share price appreciation potential as well. Great yield at about 5.1% but growth is a challenge.

Funding remains a problem: will they have to dilute shares? Also, it's a yield proxy, so what happens as interest rates rise? Pays a nice, safe dividend. Cheap at 13.3x times with a good balance sheet. They'll grow their earnings. It's shelter from the current storm. (Analysts’ price target is $63.91)

He likes this but prefers Enbridge or Pembina. It is almost like a utility. You are getting a decent dividend and should see some capital appreciation. Big question is what does the future hold. Difficult to get approvals on projects. He expects oil differentials to more normalize. This is a decent name.

Pipeline stocks can be good investments. Oil is going to keep on flowing. There will be pipeline expansion at some point. It is not of interest to him, however. Make sure you look carefully at the financials and political ramifications affecting the stock. It can be difficult to analyze it and come to clear conclusions.

One of the curses of the pipelines is growth because it means that they have to raise capital. They have growth projects with the need to raise capital. They prefer Enbridge (ENB-T) as they came of the other side of this funding need now.

TRP-T or ENB-T? At these prices, he thinks TRP-T is in fantastic shape and the mainline natural gas represents half of the company’s NAV. Within a short period of time he thinks this will decline to only about 10-15% of NAV. This signifies how the company is diversifying – although the stock is a little expensive right now. ENB-T is less dynamic, but he believes their infrastructure is advantaged (as there are few projects being approved) and the dividend continue to grow. You could own both and not be concerned.

It is hard to tell if this company has fallen due to the Trans Mountain issues or because of rising interest rates. He expects news on Keystone XL in the fall. Growth in the Alberta natural gas system has good potential, especially if a west coast LNG project goes ahead as they have a virtual monopoly on the gathering infrastructure. An announcement on the project could be coming as early as next week. Yield 5%.

Asked to compare Enbridge and TransCanada, he said he currently owns only Enbridge. Both are utility companies. Both pay high yields. Their stock prices are very interest-rate sensitive because interest rates drive the relative value of their dividends and because they borrow enormous amounts of money and interest rates determine the cost of carrying these loans. He holds utility stocks for clients who need steady income but this is, in general, the wrong time to buy utilities.

If you've been collecting their dividends, you've done well, but he prefers companies that reinvest their cash. This is a good choice if you want to collect a dividend in the long run and see 9% compounded growth.
