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.
