She likes this. EMA made an acquisition in Florida. The dividend is safe and should grow in the single digits. Utilities are a great space for income investors. She owns peers including AQN.

Utilities have bounced, but as the market has rallied significantly, a lot of these names have underperformed and that's a good time to buy. Likes it, as well as Fortis, Attco, and BIP.UN. You could buy 3 or 4 and build yourself a little defensive portfolio with income and potential growth. Still upside, good core holdings, won't get you into too much trouble.

It offers safety with a stable income. Utilities are defensive and it just pulled back so it is a good opportunity. A high quality Canadian business. (Analysts’ price target is $59.81)

It is defensive in this type of market. The utility market has come off and they are no longer as expensive as before. It is a well run business. Their debt is higher because of recent acquisitions.

Sell Emera to buy an American utility? There's growth for Emera and all utilities that supply energy to the U.S., because their electricity grid will change, as seen in California's blackouts and the aims of a Democratic presidency. Democrats will order a tax hike across industries, but this will actually benefit utilities, because they can pass that hike on and increase their returns. Also, EMA is Canadian but boosted its American presence by buying Tampa Electric. He prefers Canadian utilities over American in order to benefit from the Canadian tax credit. So, don't sell a Canadian utility to buy an American one. Besides, many Canadian ones have significant American holdings. Stick with Emera, but he prefers another Canadian utility (see top picks).

EMA vs. FTS Emera reported pretty good numbers. Both have foreign exposure. Both have growth to them and over 4% yield. Operating risk, but not political risk per se. Both are fine holds.

We had a spike down and then a considerable rally. He would look to about EBV or book value. If you own it, you are down a bit but not down that much. He would be a buyer at $36.

Not a bullish nor bearish chart. It has reached some resistance and could fall to around $52. It's trapped in a consolidation. A sideways looking chart.

(A Top Pick Jul 24/19, Up 13%) It pulled back in the summer with a rotation into cyclicals, but now investors are turning to this sector and Emera. This pays a nice 4% dividend yield that's growing. He's sticking to it. Stable earnings will let you sleep at night during volatility.

They are focusing investment down in Florida with solar energy. The dividend could continue to increase. It is good to have some utility exposure and he would consider this to be a hold.
