It's probably topped out by getting up to its fair market value so there's not much place to go. He is using the opportunity to switch into things that are more promising.

How Many Stocks does he Recommend Holding in the Utility Sector. Stocks in isolation miss the point. It depends on what utilities you are buying. He has almost a 20% weighting in utilities. He has FTS-T with huge diversification, yet has NPI-T which is a power producer around the world as well as domestic, although mostly off-shore wind. He owns 4 or 5 stocks.

The company has said it will increase the dividend annually by 6% until 2024. A regulated, stable business with steady cash flows that will supprot the dividend growth. Yield 3.6% (Analysts’ price target is $55.73)

Looks to be rolling over. He wouldn’t be looking at utility stocks right now. There was an upward trend line that broke. If interest rates go up, fortis won’t do well. He would wait a couple more months before even looking to ré-entre.

Well-diversified across North America. $13 billion capital program will sustain a 6-7% growth rate and the dividend. Utilities are a good place to be in a cautious environment. The stock price is still good. They will focus on organic growth and their existing assets. (Analysts’ price target is $55.73)

He thinks AQN-T will probably be a hold better. He lightened up on FTS-T. He may still lighten up on the FTS-T position further. AQN-T has some other drivers to it. He thinks it will test its new high. You could buy it here today.

Has long owned this. It's pulled back given this rotation out of defensive names lately. It pays a 3.7% yield. Cash flow is stable due to revenues coming from regulated assets. They're focused on organic growth, with a backlog of projects all regulated. They will grow their dividend 6% annually through 2024. (Analysts’ price target is $56.29)

Steady eddy, good dividend. Great company, very well managed, high quality dividend. Standalone utility. Good value, but an income generating tool. If you want a bit more growth, there are other names, but they aren't pure utilities.

Fortis just came out with good earnings. It is expensive at 19x. Algonquin is growing earnings per share at 15% with a lower multiple. He prefers AQN.

(A Top Pick Oct 24/18, Up 33%) Good dividend yield, defensive business, mid-single digit level of growth. When the market gives you a gift, sometimes you need to lock it in. Valuation is now stretched, because though stock price has appreciated, earnings have not kept pace.

He has done extremely well on it over the last number of years. In the last quarter they were behind expectations but it is just weather related. They are diversified. They have positioned themselves so a lot of operations are in the US now. He thinks he will see future dividend increases coming out of this company. Take a long term view.

It's done very well this year. But as an interest-sensitive stock, they've all fed off a massive decline of bond yields. He will sell a bit of this. The dividend isn't high enough for him.

Sell 25% of his telecoms and utilities like Fortis, and buy REITs? It's a good plan to diversify. Summit REIT is good. The utilities like Emera, Fortis and NPI-T are great stocks to own now--they're regulated, earnings growth backed in and the multiples are reasonable. They still have upside, and so do the REITs.

(A Top Pick Aug 09/18, Up 33%) When he recommended it, there was volatility. You get a dividend, but also growth. Interest rates moving down, the REITs and utilities have performed well. Doesn't own it anymore since the stock grew so well. Good for income investors.
