(A Top Pick Mar 04/20, Up 4%) It remains his biggest holding. A lot lies ahead for ALA. They have exposure to the western Canadian natural gas market (he's very bullish about this) through their Ridley Island propane terminal. He feels good about ALA. It's very well-positioned. They raised their dividend at the end of last year, which was earlier than he expected, and he expects it to grow more. ALA stock should reach the mid/high-20's in the next 12-24 months.

They've done a great job and the stock has done better lately with a pretty decent dividend yield. There is not much growth going forward. He switched some to AQN-T to get a play on the renewable. But there is nothing wrong with ALA-T.

Misunderstood and undervalued. Now being upgraded to outperform, and this speaks to better times ahead. Balance sheet being restructured in a positive way. Should see dividend increases next year or the one after. $17 is decent, but anywhere below $16 is a great entry point. Yield is 5-5.5%.

He's followed this. They were once saddled with a ton of debt after buying a huge US utility, WGL, but have sold assets to pay that down. They're much better now. Several of their assets have done well, including their propane export facility which is tracking ahead of expectations. Last week, they announced they'll increase their stake in Petrogas which is accretive, though funded by debt. ALA is in a good position now. The dividend is safe. In a few years, they 'll have to seek opportunities elsewhere. Likes this, but look for a better entry point.

For income investors He sold this at $18. It's likely safe to own again and the yield is safe. Stable earnings, though only single-digit growth. He's comfortable with this. It pays a 5.8% yield, paid monthly.

He owned it years ago when they had just did a big acquisition in the U.S. which inspired concerns over leverage. All this hit the stock. It has since bounced back with great hydro and infrastructure assets. Pays a good, consistent yield. But he prefers Brookfield Infrastructure because it has more global assets that are run by fine managers. He prefers Brookfield.

The effect of the U.S. exchange rate? One of his biggest holdings. Currencies are in a race to the bottom in this era. He expects the CAD to decline vs. USD, so ALA will benefit. ALA is his largest position. The ALA stock price didn't deserve to be cut more than in half during the lockdown because 70% of their business are regulated American utilities. ALA projects 10% growth in the next 5 years on their WGL business, a regulated utility, and has reduced debt. He expects the dividend to rise in 2021. Their midstream business in BC is doing great; their propane terminal is exporting record amounts. CNQ buying Painted Pony is a plus, because PP was a big customer of ALA's. Many things are going well for ALA. They pays a 5% yield. Low risk and good reward.

Fortis vs. Altagas ALA is riskier, but it's starting to come into the cycle so, it's doing a lot better. Fortis is a steady-eddy withe nice free cash flow growth and trading at an okay 17.4x valuation, in line with AQN. They hold a lot of renewables, so it will do fine if Biden is U.S. president. It has US exposure. he likes them. He prefers Fortis. Some money has flowed out of here, so it's not trading at the top. With interest rates being a lot lower than before, all these names can trend up 10% in the future.

There is a possibility the price will recover within five years. It is higher risk/reward to PPL-T, however. It needs more improvement in earnings quality for him to jump in.

He has recommended ALA more than any other analyst, he reckons. He thinks people don't understand how they have transformed the regulated utility into an entity with a lot of upside. He thinks it is under valued and just bought more this week. One of the most attractive investments in this uncertain market right now. Yield 6%.

They do not own ALA. When they bought a Washington utility it took time to re-balance the portfolio. If you own it, you could continue to do so. A good investment if you are looking for utility exposure.

ALA was just upgraded by his firm. It has 55% of their earnings from regulated utility activities. If you are looking to sleep better at night, ENB has a less risky business model. Their risk is from growth being halted with recent pipeline protests.

They have US dollars coming in now. This is not at the top of his list but you get a decent dividend yield and the balance sheet is in better shape. It is probably a decent buy.
