The utilities have come off recently on the prospects of higher interest rates. They keep growing their dividend, now over 4%. Power demanding will grow in the next five years, and utilities will benefit. They are paid on a regulated basis at set rates. Utilities look very good and are set up to ride this energy increase.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly EMA is an electric generation and transmission company, operating in east coast of Canada, with customers along the US seaboard and New Mexico. Trading at 13x earnings, it is good value compared to its Utility peers at 34x. It pays an excellent dividend, backed by a manageable payout ratio of 65% of cash flow. We would trade this with a stop loss at $45, looking to achieve $62 -- upside potential of over 18%. Yield 4.98% (Analysts’ price target is $61.20)

Canadian utilities are fantastic to own in a barbell strategy. Safe, with a regulated base. Attractive return over the next 4-5 years. You won't get the pop of other cyclicals, but eventually, it will gain traction. Dividend growth, low volatility. Undemanding valuation.

Issue is if interest rates rise, owning utilities will not be great. Rate-based growth of 5-6%. Nothing wrong with the company. Use it as an income device. Dividend around 5%.

Assets all over NA. Good opportunities in Florida and from a US renewable capex spend. Great choice if you want low volatility, steady dividend, low beta. If you want more torque, consider Boralex and Northland, at higher valuations, and also AY or AQN. Depends on your goals as an investor.

All dividend stocks should continue to benefit from low interest rates. If we see the economic recovery that might come next year, you could see increased demand for stocks like this. If they can't get yields from GICs, people will look to dividend stocks. He can't say specifically if this particular stock will continue to rise.

EMA vs. FTS Utility stocks are safe to own in times of fear. Fortis is one of the best managed utilities in Canada, with Emera right behind it. He wouldn't sell if you're holding for income. They'll gradually get back some of the money lost as time goes on.

Has a small short on it. It is defensive but it is not cheap for the cashflow it generates. The earnings are 14x EBITA and 1.7x book with 24x price to earning. The yield is healthy at 4.5% but the payout ratio is rising.

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 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).
