BUY
Current share price a great place to invest. Higher interest rates will be tough on company, but business is a good long term investment. 49 straight years of dividend growth. Share price expected to grow in the long term.
electrical utilities
TOP PICK
Diversified infrastructure, primarily in gas and electric distribution. 5-year capital plan anticipates addition to rate base of 6%, so we can see pretty consistent dividend increases between 4-6%. Already a consistent dividend grower. Earnings in USD give a hedge against the CAD. Yield is 4.28%. (Analysts’ price target is $56.83)
electrical utilities
BUY
Doesn't own stock, but sees current share price as good entry point. Electric/gas utility - interest rates very sensitive to business model. Very consistent business model (~4% dividend yield). Good for defensive investors.
electrical utilities
TOP PICK
Boring and defensive, and everyone needs defence. Utilities have pulled back sharply, so it's attractive to enter now. 60% of its earning are from the U.S. The renewable trend makes Fortis well-positioned, because they build transmission likes for energy. FTS itself is transitioning to green, like turning a coal-burning plant into renewables. They can grow their 4.5% dividend 6% annually through 2025. Big cash flows. (Analysts’ price target is $60.91)
electrical utilities
BUY
An electric utility company in the U.S. and Caribbean. Had good numbers in the last quarter and has increased the dividend for 49 consecutive years. Interest rates will cause some volatility but its valuation is good. Moody's and S&P have reaffirmed ratings.
electrical utilities
WEAK BUY
Well-run. In utilities, his #1 choice is Brookfield Infrastructure and Algonquin which offer stronger growth, especially AQN. Utilities have come off a lot given rising rates, so choose one with strong growth. All have robust capital programs and enjoy strong demand. Prefers AQN in this space.
electrical utilities
TOP PICK
49 years of increasing dividends. Not a huge risk to negative revisions. Rapid rise in interest rates has impacted valuation of utilities, so an attractive opportunity. Stable, predictable, consistent results that can weather the storm. Well diversified. Not a lot of funding risk. Yield is 4.27%. (Analysts’ price target is $60.91)
electrical utilities
BUY
Totally defensive which you need now. 98% of their revenue is rate-regulated utilities, so there's little risk. It has been growing for a long time. They deploy capital to wisely build their grid or repair their infrastructure. They grow their capital base, earnings and dividend by 6% annually. Shares yield close to 4%. That's a 10% return annually. Some feel the PE is too high, but he's fine with Fortis.
electrical utilities
BUY on WEAKNESS
Key to any utility is you have to factor the inflation rate into your return. If inflation gets sticky, around 5-6%, you'll have a negative rate of return. You want to get this on sale, especially important if you hold it in a taxable account. If inflation goes back to 3-4%, it's not that big an issue. Dividend safe, well-run.
electrical utilities
COMMENT
A long term hold with regular cash flow along with slow growth. He prefers AES Corporation since it has more growth especially with the renewables.
electrical utilities
HOLD
Pretty low beta, about half of the TSX. Utilities tend to do well in economic downturns, and they've done well recently. As we get into the early stages of the next cycle and economic stability, utilities may fall off a bit. Nice yield of 3.6%.
electrical utilities
BUY
A dividend stock for a young investor? Find a dividend-grower like this, growing for 50 straight years.
electrical utilities
BUY
As part of his barbell approach, he has pretty good exposure to staples and utilities, and dividend growth in particular. Great record of growing dividend. Yield of 3.5%, growing at 6-7% a year. Won't shoot the lights out if there's a strong market from here, but it will be a steady performer.
electrical utilities
DON'T BUY
It has risen up to its intrinsic value so not much left in the stock.
