BUY
Hydro One
Slow and steady utility name that reflects growth in Ontario. Good name to own if you are looking for dividend income. Power demand not going anywhere. Won't see major growth in share price, but is a steady hold.

Hydro One
Not a big fan - it is a politicized company so there will be limited passing along of costs. It is range bound.

BUY
Hydro One
Steady eddy. If you're looking for steady dividends to fund your retirement or your lifestyle, stocks like this are your baby. As bond prices go up, it puts pressure on the utility stocks. Rock solid. Utilities are not cutting dividends.

BUY
Hydro One
Some avoid utilities as interest rates rise. However, Canadian utilities have done very well due to the Russian invasion. So, investors seek defence in this sector. Valuations here are a little rich. He likes Hydro One for stability. He also likes clean energy like AQN, which he trimmed a little. Clean energy will come back this year after a strong 2020 and maybe not as strong as 2020, but still good.

BUY
Hydro One
Management has put governance issues behind it and instituted good policies. Good mid-single-digit growth, healthy dividend yield, favourable jurisdiction of Ontario. Good RRSP candidate. Not too much of a headache for volatility and downside. For him, better opportunities elsewhere.

H vs. AQN He's been adding to AQN. Valuations have come back in the renewables, with more upside in the next year or two over basic fossil fuel companies. AQN has a 4% dividend yield, valuation is good, Kentucky Power acquisition is another leg of growth.

It's performed well in the past 12-24 months. Ontario is one of the most difficult energy jurisdictions around. Hydro doesn't offer much growth, but it's stable. The dividend isn't enough to excite investors, so he prefers Fortis and others. It's okay to hang onto shares.

Hydro One

Very defensive cashflow streams. Compared to Fortis, Hydro One has geographical limitations being based only in Ontario. In terms of rising interest rates, it remains low and it is not an immediate concern. Look for a utility that has the ability to increase dividends annually.

HOLD
Hydro One

He favours Fortis and Algonquin. H-T is a very stable business model. They had aggressive growth projects but they didn't work out. Would like to see more diversification of cashflow since it is very dependant on Ontario. It is a good, durable business. Would not sell it but it may not perform as well as others. Growth platform is limited.

They made a big acquisition and ran into trouble, but that now behind them. They've endured Covid this, but there's little stock appreciation ahead. Hold this to collect the dividend.

Hydro One

Likes it. OK growth rate. Expensive. AQN and FTS are trading at better levels with nice growth rates and dividend growth. Pretty safe area, but a mistake to buy at the top of the range.

PARTIAL SELL
Hydro One
He buys utilities to generate income. Yes, they are boring, but this sector has had an incredible run in the last 12 months. This is overbought now and would take profits. Also, the yield has dropped to 3.3%, which is a negative.

DON'T BUY
Hydro One

Ontario's current government has made many changes to the Hydro board, a gong show. He is wait-and-see with Hydro and prefers Emera as a utility, which offers better growth and doesn't suffer government meddling. At its core, though, Hydro is a great business as a regulated utility.

DON'T BUY
Hydro One

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.

DON'T BUY
Hydro One
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.
