He would not buy here. His model price is $17.96 or -5%. This valuation is stretched. At $13 it would be an excellent buy.

It's one of the few reliable renewable stocks to invest in. It's reliable, though not a slam dunk like TC Energy because something could happen to it. But it's pretty good and pays a 4.5% yield.

He’s not looking to purchase it right now. He holds Northland Power instead. There was an announcement that there is a new project that is being built in the US that is a combination of wind, solar and Tesla batteries. Carbon credit will also be a good opportunity for them.

He thinks AQN-T will probably be a hold better. He lightened up on FTS-T. He may still lighten up on the FTS-T position further. AQN-T has some other drivers to it. He thinks it will test its new high. You could buy it here today.

(A Top Pick Nov 13/18, Up 33%) They've benefited from this past year's market move to defensive stocks. They bought New Brunswick Gas from ENB and another nat. gas facility in New York state; and they're closing a deal on another in Bermuda. So, they've added generation capacity. They're make hydro, wind and solar energy, which she likes. The dividend yield pays 4.2% which is growing 10% annually. She still likes it. A good, long-term hold. It's smaller than Fortis, so they can grow faster.

Utilities vs. financials as utilities sell off, but during low interest rates He's been seeing risk-on and -off trades of only short duration. AQN is his 5th-largest holding. You can step into American banks now, like JP Morgan, but it's perfectly fine to own both utilities and financials. He still likes AQN. Pension funds are moving away from fossil fuels into renewables; those funds like yield and established companies like AQN or Northland Power. Don't worry about the recent modest decline in AQN.

Fortis just came out with good earnings. It is expensive at 19x. Algonquin is growing earnings per share at 15% with a lower multiple. He prefers AQN.

Been rolling over lately. Is there running room to come? Yes, it has rolled over, because they raised money to pay down debt. Now is a buying opportunity. It probably won't jump another third to $24, but the dividend offers a good return. Buy below $18. It needs a US acquisition that they're planning to push the stock up.

It is half an independent power producer and half a regulated US utility. He thinks the future is bright. He thinks it will continue to grow organically as well as to look at every deal that comes onto the table. He paired back his position as the stock price edged up.

Sell Fortis and AQN to buy OTEX? AQN is a great utility; they've done a good job growing. He owns Emera in this space. Utilities have done very well until recently when a trade deal looked possible. He'd own OTEX before AQN, because it has generated a higher return on equity historically. Occasionally, OTEX makes a big acquisition to surprise the market in a good way. OTEX is doing more cloud work, which amounts to wider margins.

He likes this and has owned it as a Past Top Pick. He was a buyer below $10. It grows by acquisition along with good organic growth. It is still undervalued compared to its peers. It could still go up another couple of dollars per share. A good solid hold.

It is trading at an all time high. They have done great with a great management turn. Take profits if it gets too overweight in your portfolio.

Pays a regulated return, though buy on a pullback, and it's done a great job growing. AQN is his favourite in this space.
