(Market Call Minute.) Great, well managed company. Very solid platform. History of raising dividends. Expensive, but he is still buying it.

(Top Pick Nov 21/11, Up 15.42% Total Return) The valuation is too cheap. Thinks he will see a dividend increase next year.

Great company. Carried a lot of cash for a long time and have spent a lot of that cash in Australia, which he thinks is a brilliant move. Good utility.

Buy a stock such as this that would benefit from continuing low interest rates but also by Sun Life (SLF-T) that would go up with interest rates and collect dividends from both. Good Hedging Strategy? You just explained the benefits of having a diversified portfolio. Good strategy, but you have to be careful that in this 3rd quarter, Sun Life is going to have an actuarial review and might have to take down another charge.

(Market Call Minute.) The utility group as a whole has been correcting recently. Dividend growth is more attractive than high dividends that don’t grow and utilities have a little less dividend growth.

Interesting company. His biggest concern is the utility group being exposed to any movement in interest rates. For instance, the junk bond index spreads hit a 10 year low in the last week or so. Although this one has a lower yield, it could be a safer place to be compared to some with a higher yield.

At what point do you sell: Has anything changed in the story? Not much. What is better? You might find something you want to buy. CU fits the income and growth mold. Look at it at on after-tax basis. A backbone company. They have monopoly. Pays you while you are waiting. A good name to own.

(Market Call Minute.) His favourite utility/pipeline company. Has the lowest PE of any of the group and the highest potential for raising dividends.

A utility with no risks about pipelines. Made a nice acquisition in Australia that is going to boost earnings. The main power generator in Alberta which is a growing area creating more demand on transmission lines. Trading at about 15X next year's earnings. Raised its dividends 20 years in a row.

(A Top Pick July 30/10. Up 20.68%.) Starting to get a little bit scary because there is a wedge forming and at some point it is either going to go up or down.

A dividend stock. Likes its western exposure. Alberta was very hard hit but is now all coming back and as it does so this company will do quite well. 3% yield and may be increasing its dividend. Growth potential as well.
