They've done well this year, especially with less government influence. He prefers AQN, Fortis and BEP in this space who have better growth and offer wider diversification. H-T is Ontario-centric. It's okay if you hold it.

As a dividend stock Fine as a dividend stock, but not fine as a stock. They tried to do a US acquisition, but found out they couldn't. They have large capex, too. Dividend is safe and has been doing better lately than he expected, but that could be a result of a yield play. Doesn't interest him.

Pays a good yield, but there isn't much growth. She wants utilities for the yields but also cash flow growth. The Ontario government still owns 47% of this company so it's possible they could sell down and get involved in the company's operations.

Sell half of my holdings and buy a utility? It pays a 3.9%. The shares have done well since they abandoned a bid to buy a Washington utility. There's little growth here, though. He prefers Capital Power which is a little riskier and pays a safer dividend. Also look at Innergex or a REIT, if you want income.

This was supposed to be a sleepy, easygoing utility. They did a deal in the US that was not seen that positively. It trades at a discount now. He thinks the discount is warranted due to management, who needs to be trusted. They need to articulate their strategy and then have some wins. He is seeing better opportunities than this one.

H vs. CU Hydro One had serious issues, but a decent dividend. If he had to pick one right now, he'd pick CU. Looks a bit steadier. Hydro One is in nosebleed territory, and looks as though it's starting to come off. CU is consolidating, and looks to go higher short-term. $35 is a good stop level to sell CU, $22 for Hydro One.

It is a lot of natural gas, compared to other renewable energies. It has a fairly low environmental score. They are not a leader or ahead of the curve in transition to renewable.

He owns Fortis, Emera and NPI, so he has enough utilities. The business in Ontario is good with possibility of expansion. But the problems with the Ontario goverment scare him off. Good dividend, but weaker dividend growth than its peers.

It needs to break out of a very sideways chart that happened through 2018. There was a slight downtrend before that. Doesn't see a catalyst to spark a breakout.

There was a change of government in Ontario. The CEO and Board left but that cloud over the company is fading away. They provide distribution and transmission of electricity. They are trying to make an acquisition of a US company. If the US acquisition comes to fruition, the Ontario province stake becomes lower. The concern of political interference is overdone. Yield = 4.7% (Analysts’ price target is $20.92)

Things have settled down on this stock now after a rocky summer. Its yield is stable. He sees this as a decent larger-cap play.

A political mess. A typical utility with a 3.5% dividend that should grow. But with high electricity rates in Ontario, no he wouldn't touch this.

The stock suffered pressure when Ford wanted to be elected. The stock is undervalued. They are closing on a financing. They are buying a large utility in the US. He thinks this will make it a more valuable company. He owns convertible bonds on this company.

There is always a debt concern about this stock. They have replaced the Board and the revenue is controlled by the government. He is scared by the private-public ownership. He would choose another utility and avoid the potential government involvement. Yield 4.6%.

H.IR-T Investment Receipts. They are tied to Hydro 1. They issued them as part of their US acquisition. It is not clear whether this transaction will actually close. These receipts give you protection in that scenario. You either get shares of H-T or your money back. The price momentum has started to improve on these, 4.7% yield. He likes these receipts as a better way to play the deal. It should happen between now and the end of April. (Analysts’ target: $21.58).
