Shareholders are having to decide to wait for the BIP-T shares after the recent acquisition or sell near the $29 offering price – should they wait?

He has been very interested in it based on the news today of Brookfield acquiring it. Brookfield are an astute buyer. There is a 53% premium attached to this transaction based on yesterday’s close which is roughly the gain today. The strategic process has been open for a few months. Brookfield normally make an offer at a lower price and hope the target management team takes it. Are there likely other buyers? He does not think there are. Brookfield may be the only game in town. If hold stock, will hold to see if Brookfield sweetens the pot but once gets close to offer price, would be selling.

They have a very stable business. They rent their water heaters to consumers and when the heaters fail people normally rent another one. This stability allows Enercare to pay a high dividend. Rising interest rates are the enemy of yield stocks, including Enercare but the dividend is likely to rise and the stock has gone down too much. (Analysts' price target is $24)

He shorted this a little bit. It's a business that's hard to like: renting and sevicing water heaters. In February, they reported weak earnings in recent quarters. Also, new laws forbidding door-to-door sales may be a headwind.

He sold after the most recent quarterly earnings report. Their earnings seem to be stalled. There are complaints about the company from customers. When you buy a house, then if there is a hot water heater contract, then you, the buyer, are tied to it. He is not comfortable owning it any more. It has a nice dividend yield, though.

Doesn't look good now. It's had many down days recently. People buy it for the yield, but you still lose if the stock price falls. The next support is $15.45 with minor support at $16.30. Look at the 30-day moving average--if it breaks above that, then it's worth looking at. Been volatile lately and its volume declining is a negative. Don't buy now, just watch it.

He likes the company. They have long term sustainable cash flows. The yield is over 5% and they just raised the dividend a token amount. Over time the cap-X will go down and cash flow will go up. It is a great hold for a steady dividend investor.

A strong equity return generator. He likes the business model of water heaters and furnaces, where they are able to return revenues. The stock has been in neutral for the last while. Suspects the market is digesting the fairly heavy gains from 2010 to 2016. Earnings have remained relatively strong. A good, long term holding. Dividend yield of 4.85%.

(A Top Pick Feb 14/17. Up 9%.) He is looking at this company as a long-term hold. Really conservative management team. Good dividend yield. There are more good days ahead. Did a US acquisition last year which they are integrating. They are increasing the percentage of furnaces and air conditioner rentals, which costs money up front, but it gives a good income stream.

Best known for hot water heater rentals. He likes the business and its stable recurring revenue model, high profitability and a respectable, growing dividend yield. The valuation keeps him away from it and he would wait for more of a pull back to get interested in it. This is not a pro-growth stock and he is currently positioning more for growth.

He can’t do a reading on the seasonal play, but technically it has had a long-term upward trend. This has been in a trading range for about 8 months. If it moved above the trading range at about $18.50, that would be quite positive, but if it broke below around $17, that would be considered a start of a downward trend.

He likes the cash flow they get from the hot water business to get into smart meters and HVAC service sales and rental in North America. The average age of the air-conditioner in the US is 10 years old, and there are some new standards that are coming in. Meanwhile there are about 50,000 mom-and-pop HVAC service companies in the US. There is a big opportunity to acquire them. This is trading at 10 or 11 times EBITDA, and they can make acquisitions at 4 or 5 times EBITDA. Then they just rinse and repeat. Millennial’s are going to need a lot of houses. Dividend yield of 4.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $24.00)

He likes this company, but doesn't own it. It has become too expensive. They took their sub metering business and improved it. Even on their hot water tanks and servicing side, they have turned from selling units to renting them, which is help their recurring revenues and provided a residual income stream. In 2013 that business was about 11%, and is now about 69%. Trading at around 33X. Would prefer Algonquin Power (AQN-T), which is a similar business. Dividend yield of 4.8%.

He has held the name for a very long time. It is a name he really likes and likes the stability of the business. They diversified recently and bought a HVAC business which is much more dependent on the weather. Due to our mild winter weather last year the stock went down. It has rallied since then and he believes it is still a good long term name. Also, believes that the share price may not reflect the sub-metering business they have.

Basically 1/3 sub metering and 2/3 home services. A great business. Their acquisition strategy has really been paying off and has been getting them into the US. On sub metering, they have focused on going to a recurring revenue model by encouraging rentals as opposed to purchasing. He looks on this as a utility.
