(A Top Pick Mar 13/20, Up 5%) She's been buying more during this pullback. They plan on growing their 4% dividend 6% annually through 2025. FTS boasts a defensive cash-flow stream. It's a solid utility, paying a steady stream of increasing dividends. She's long held this as a key holding. It was a great stock to hold during the March 2020 panic sell.

(A Top Pick Mar 17/20, Up 6%) The changes within the energy space will benefit Fortis, which has made good steps in ESG to attract ESG investors. This is a long-term hold and pays a fine dividend. He advocates holding utilities for their safe revenues and dividends as we enter this reopening. It will take longer than many expect for world economies to return to previous levels, so utilities are positive in this light.

It is good, not great. Good companies can have a place in your portfolio. They don't have the return metrics he is looking for. Much of their activities are regulated and he likes that. They are a steady payer of dividends.

(A Top Pick Aug 05/20, Down 5%) It has been growing its dividend for 47 years and should grow by 6% into 2024. You should be in this company if you want to be in the utility sector. If we see interest rates pull back then he would expect this one to do quite well. He would expect rates to pull back in May.

Continues to buy for new clients. Very attractively priced here. Defensive with regulated cashflow. Increasing their dividends 6% annually through 2025. Bond yields are still very low so she is not concerned. The market has focused on cyclical recovery plays and neglected defensive stocks. A good time to buy when it is out of favour for steady dividends.

In an unloved sector, but this offers a fine dividend yield with upside. Emera, too. If the TSX moves upward, then FTS will underperform, but if we move sideways, this stock will do relatively well in comparison. Also, very cold weather like now helps these utilities. A boring, but core name. All told, this should return you 8-10%.

For a retirement portfolio. Something like a Fortis gives you a stable yield for a retirement portfolio. Could also do a barbell approach, with some PPL and some Fortis, or another high-quality Canadian utility, to limit the volatility.

It is a boring utility, regulated. Dividend just under four percent. They have defensible cash flow streams. She likes the dividend growth. The payout ratio is very reasonable at 65% of cash flow. (Analysts’ price target is $57.93)

Trading weakly, but he can't explain why. Good reason to buy. One of the best managed companies in the world. Lots of positives ahead. Diversified. Democratic sweep in Congress could mean higher corporate taxes, which is actually good for utilities. Will participate in the renewable transition. Long secular trend for the company.

Sold it on valuation concerns, and seems to have stagnating earnings, though they continue to boost the dividend. Not timely now. Best of breed on the TSX. It's in the low beta, high yield, defensive category that could be a source of funds for better opportunities.

FTS vs. EMA 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.
