PAST TOP PICK
Fortis Inc.(FTS-T) 

February 22, 2018

(A Top Pick Feb. 1/17, Up 6%) Part of the rising interest rate environment. US tax reform will hurt Fortis for the short term, but long term, Fortis will do well. Continues to like it at these levels. Selling at just over book value and it's highly profitable. Won't be a serious downside from here. In an uncertain world, is a good name to hold. You're paid to wait.  4% dividend.

Is this a buying opportunity? He thinks a lot of people would say so. Many of the utilities have been punished with the higher interest rates unnecessary. There is still always the pressure if interest rates continue to move up.

February 13, 2018

(A Top Pick February 17, 2017. Down 2.63%). It pays an attractive yield, over 4%. Pulled back because of rising bond yields. She still likes it and still owns it as an income stock. It offers a stable cash flow. They are growing in Canada and the US and expect to increase their dividend 6% every year into 2021.

In the same class as Emera, squared. Fortis has increased dividend 46 years in a row. Dividend growers do the best over time. Can safely own both Fortis and Emera.

Dividend will go up as more projects go online. Valuation is reasonable at 16x, despite a fear of rising interest rated. Strong fundmantals. All its energy is contracted or regulated. Comfortable to own this.

Utility names, and interest-sensitive stocks generally, including Telcos, have been under pressure. If you own it, there is no rush to sell it.  He prefers Algonquin Power (AQN-T) and Emera (EMA-T)  because they have good growth profiles and that will give them better ability to raise their dividend.

This strong broke its uptrend. An uptrend usually shows higher highs and higher lows. This stock has broken its lows and is selling below the trendline. It has probably broken the 200-day moving average.

This will give you pressure from rising interest rates, and it will be difficult for these companies to raise their dividends at the rate they have been. The regulated side of the business is going to be told how much they are allowed to earn. A lot of Cdn utilities were buying US assets, which is going to be a bit of a boon for them over time. Canadian utilities growth over the last 5 years have been through acquisitions, which is not usually a good thing. You get good growth out of a utility stock when their rate base is growing, which is when they are adding customers organically. He doesn't have any problem with this company. It’s pretty conservative in nature. You are almost better buying the bonds then the companies, because if the market falls 20%, your bonds, which are yielding roughly the same, will keep their value.

Chart shows a very nice up trend. You can keep holding this and enjoy the yield. Be careful that it doesn’t go below $42.50. Use that as your stop loss. 3.9% dividend yield.

He has a lot of respect for this company. It has a lot of operations in the US now. Over the last 10 years, they have made 2 major acquisitions. The nice thing about this company is that they have a balance of assets that is diversified amongst different regulatory bodies. Dividend yield of 3.89%.

It falls into the category that it pulled back with the whole group they still have room to grow by acquisition.  It is a hold for the dividend but he does not expect a lot of growth.  It would be a buy a couple of dollars down.

The problem he has with utilities is that they are making acquisitions for growth, not organically. That is the 1st of a red flag. Interest rates are rising. This company's dividends have been going up roughly 7%. The company has been moving into the US so there are some currency issues. If you go with this, don’t make it a large holding.

This is her utility pick. The stock has pulled back to about $45, and has not participated in this recent rally. Made an acquisition about a year ago that expanded their presence in the US. Based on their backlog of projects in place, the company announced they can grow their dividend 6% through to 2020. Dividend yield of 3.8%. (Analysts' price target is $50.50.)

This has an impeccable dividend record. The longest consecutive dividend increases in Canada, going on 46-47 years. A utility that now owns more utility assets in the US than in Canada. This has lots of organic growth in front of it. He is hoping to see a short-term rise in interest rates, and maybe see the stock check back to under $40. If you can get it at over 84% yield, you can buy it all day long. That is where he would be looking to buy more.
