Pembina Pipeline (PPL-T) acquired the company. Keep the stock or Sell and take profits? Pembina is not just a pure pipeline, but does have some oil interests as well. Chart shows a little bit of overhead that we have seen since 2015. There are a number of people that remember what they paid and will want their money back. We are getting close to that level. The chart is taking a slightly rounded look to it. Between the fact that it definitely has some technical resistance in the low $40 he would be tempted to take the cash. On the other hand, if you are interested in the dividend, it is a perfectly fine income stock. He wouldn't buy any new stock.

They are being bought out by PPL-T and it closes on the 4th quarter of this year. You get shares of PPL-T and cash ($18.50). Roll it over into PPL-T because it is not a tax event then. Put the cash back into either PPL-T or ALA-T.

Infrastructure and pipelines. The pipeline sector is not cheap. Lots of money is going in because there is great dividends. He holds this through ZWU-T. It has a covered call overlay and high dividends. He would not jump into VSN-T because it has flat lined after the takeover offer.

He likes energy infrastructure pipelines and midstream. They are like toll booths and are worth a lot of money. This one is very much misunderstood. Everyone thought they were going to cut the dividend over the last few years. This is the old Port Chicago, which basically owned 50% of the Alliance pipeline with Enbridge, but the company has been radically transformed over the last 3-4 years, and is now a premier gas infrastructure play. One of the cheaper companies in the sector. Dividend yield of 7.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $16.)

He would prefer some of the alternatives, such as a Inter Pipeline (IPL-T), TransCanada (TRP-T) or Enbridge (ENB-T). This one looks expensive to him, and by a considerable amount. The one thing that attracts people is the generous yield, but that by itself is not sufficient to account for the difference in valuations.

His way of playing the energy infrastructure space. Very good assets. They have stream assets and pipeline assets. Their major asset is a 50% stake in Alliance Pipeline, which runs from the Northeast BC region down to Chicago. The Northeast BC region in the Montney and Duvernay regions is very prolific and very robust. This is cheap trading at 9.5X AFFO compared to its peers trading at 12.5X. Dividend yield of 7.38%. (Analysts’ price target is $14.88.)

Just looking at the numbers, you might think the dividend is not covered and that they have a lot of debt on the balance sheet, but a lot of this has to do with timing. They put a lot of new projects in place. Has a big joint venture with Encana (ECA-T) that is going to come on stream in the next couple of years. Management feels very certain that they are going to sell their US power plant assets, which will create another big cash flow inflow for them. He is not worried about the balance sheet. The dividend is well covered. A very attractive stock to own on the dividend growth side.

Ranks 157 and is in the top quarter of his database. Sales were down 3% year-over-year, but still managed to squeak out a 52% increase in earnings. Earnings estimates have been shaved by about 8% in the last 90 days, and are expected to grow by about 60% from $.23-$.27 in 2017, against a PE of 25X. Unfortunately, free cash flow is not positive.

Not a bad looking chart. If you like the fundamentals, this has a nice little uptrend. It seems to have taken up on the risk, but it is near the trend line. There is not a failure of the lows and highs. There is an old resistance point that it may be starting with right now, but generally speaking, this is not a bad looking chart. If has kind of definitively broken that $13.50 or so area, and would be even more positive, if it could get back up into the $20 range within a year or so. He would wait to see if it broke out.

Sees lots of opportunities for growth in this story. They are in all the right areas in the basin. They are trying to sell off their power assets, which would provide a lot of capital to clear the balance sheet, because they have a lot of debt. It would also help them to focus a little. Management has faith in their LNG project they are trying to build. They are trying to prove that this project will actually be commercial by trying to sign on some more off takers. That is going to be a catalyst. There is a lot of optionality for the company.

Looking at their free cash flow, they are paying out everything. Paying out about $1 and free cash flow is generating about $1. In the meantime, they need to finance a lot of growth projects in the midstream space in Western Canada. He has been exiting this in the $12-$13 range, because he feels the valuation has played out.
