PAST TOP PICK
Emera Inc
(A Top Pick Aug 31/22, Down 10%) All utilities have pulled back since mid-2022. Emera has exposure to Florida, which suffered outages due to strong weather. Don't hold this now. Utilities are weak in the first months of a year.

COMMENT
Emera Inc
A great company. Interest rates have climbed a lot, but will slow and stay around 5%. So, utilities will have a tougher go. Good company as is Fortis and Hydro One, but the big question is do you want exposure to utilities. EMA's dividend is safe, but a caveat is a cap on rates by governments which would limit upside.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Emera Inc
The Nova Scotia rate settlement looks better than feared. If regulators approve it, he'll boost EMA's ROE assumptions. Even without approval, this stock looks reasonable at 16x 2023 earnings, 5.5% EPS growth and a nice 5.3% dividend. You don't have to buy today, but wait for a pullback. Overall, it's attractive vs. the market.

BUY
Emera Inc
He likes utilities in this time of aggressive rate hikes. Utilities (and REITs) offer safety and defence heading into 2023. A long-term hold.

DON'T BUY
Emera Inc
Utilities tend to do well prior to economic weakness. Not performing well. Over the next 2 years, don't put a lot into utilities, won't outperform as the macro improves. Regulatory risk will affect margins. Rising rates make the static dividend less attractive. Yield is 5.4%.
mngmnt / diversified
WEAK BUY
Emera Inc
Not entirely in renewables. See his Top Picks. Reasonably valued, 1.5x price to book. History of pretty consistent dividend increases, expects that to continue. Bit sensitive to interest rates. Wouldn't begrudge anyone buying it. Not concerned about Nova Scotia tax increase. Yield is 5.5%.

TOP PICK
Emera Inc
Seasonality is September 13 - October 27. Utility sector has done extremely well in 2022. Over 95% regulated contracts. Sometimes boring is good. Should continue to perform well relative to the market, especially if we see more volatility in September and October. Yield is 4.35%. (Analysts’ price target is $65.00)

WEAK BUY
Emera Inc
50% of revenues come from Florida. Growth profile is fairly solid. Very defensive, which he likes right now. He prefers AQN, with a more diversified footprint. Also BIP.UN, with diversification, global platform, and more attractive valuation. But nothing wrong with this name.

BUY
Emera Inc
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Rising rates will add to their debt service costs, though all utilities carry a lot of debt. Emera’s debt-to-capital of 61%. is in-line with the sector. The company can charge more to their customers. Over the past year, EMA has gradually climbed from $55 to $64 a share and given a little back in late April and May. However, its PE stands at nearly 27x, slightly lower than 2021’s 34.93x but far more than 15.5x in 2020. Read 3 dividend stocks to fight inflation for our full analysis.

BUY
Emera Inc
The dividend is the attraction here. They have a track record of raising that. They have a leveraged balance sheet, like utilities do, so rising rates will raise their debt service costs. but inflation will allow Emera to charge more to customers. There's usually a lag between inflation and rate increases, though. The dividend is solid. A good stock for an RRSP.

COMMENT
Emera Inc
Has irreplaceable assets with electrification and there will be growing demand. Has to be bullish on companies that are supplying it. Has ambitious plans and they will raise stock. This is part of the game, however.

Emera Inc
EMA vs. CU Both are good and highly regulated. EMA is on the east coast, whereas CU is on the west. EMA is like a FTS-light. See his Top Picks for suggestions that are more attractively priced with more capital upside.
