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)

BUY
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.
mngmnt / diversified
HOLD
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%.
mngmnt / diversified
BUY

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.

COMMENT
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.
mngmnt / diversified
HOLD

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.

mngmnt / diversified
DON'T BUY
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.
mngmnt / diversified
HOLD
Good company, hold onto it. Will participate in the energy grid reshaping story in the southern US. Good dividend growth. Yield is 4.5%.
