The price did not drop much in December at all. You want to be buying it for the dividend. He is not expecting much upside on the price. It was quite resilient when the rest of the market was falling. It is a utility play and not a yield play.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 08/18, Up 23%) 75% of earnings come from regulated utilities. 25% are renewable power under long-term contracts. Over 90% of earnings come from the U.S. paying dividends in USD. Pays a 4.5% yield that they can increase 10% annually because of a project backlog. They have an equity interest in Atlantic Yield which owns renewable power assets mostly in the U.S.--this gives AQN a foray to grow internationally.

AQN vs. NPI He likes and owns them both. They offer steady cash flow. Likes their dividends which should continue for quite a while. The downside to these and other utilities is that pension funds own them. So if there's a downturn, these will come down in price from a sell-off.

They had a good year in 2018. It's been a great performer over a long time. They've been aggressively buying and have executed well. He owns Northland Power instead, which has slightly more upside and growth. Nothing wrong with AQN. You can take profits here and buy banks or oil/gas or other overly punished sectors.

A nice income stock. 90% of revenue is from the U.S. and report in USD. 70% of its operations are regulated, so cash flows are stable. The rest are renewable power generation operations under long-term agreements. They pay a 4.9% yield that they can increase 10% annually to 2021. You need a dividend-grower in this environment. (Analysts’ price target is $15.16)

Pays an attractive 5.1% yield. Interest rates are still low. The business has held up well vs. its peers where other utilities have sold off (i.e. Emera). AQN is spending money on growing its capacity and doing acquisitions. It's an integrated name from generation to distribution. They raised $2.5 billion last year that will fuel growth. They took 25% ownership in Atlantica Yield to get into the clean energy space. AQN is diversified. It's neither cheap or pricey, trading at 15x. It's part of an overall balanced portfolio.

He would love to find an entry point. Rising interest rates could be an issue, but feels the bigger issue is that wind and solar are in the crosshairs of government. There is fear the governments could end long term contracts, which could create major headwinds.

As with many other small startup utilities in Canada, they have done quite well with alternative energy. He thinks that current governments are likely to reduce or stop their subsidies, which will affect the growth of these companies. Algonquin’s dividend is dividend is 4.9%. It seems reasonably priced. They have some backlog, so there is no reason to fear this stock. He would prefer a slightly higher yield for his dividend fund.

He owns this for the 5% dividend. AQN isn't pure-play renewables (they own a bit of nat gas). He's happy if this moves sideways and stays steady. AQN has a large portfolio and you can own this for the long term.

It has been part of the overall selloff in the interest sensitive names.  It is no surprise.  Today if you look at it, it has a well balanced business with half revenues coming from generation and the other half from distribution where they sell right to the retail client.  They had a nice lift in Q2 in the Atlantica yield.  Look at the capital spend program in theses utilities.  AQN-T have earmarked several $billion and he likes that.  With the recent selloff it is at 15 times PE which is the lowest in recent times so he is adding it to portfolios.

Fortis or Emera or Algonquin for dividend income, with increases? Fortis. Fortis is a good price in these ranges, history of increasing dividend, good diversified portfolio. Market has overreacted to rising interest rates, and Fortis has been caught in this. Fortis has had a better growth rate than the others, and an excellent reputation.

(A Top Pick August 11, 2017. Up 1%). This is still a core holding. They have made some smart acquisitions in the last year. At this level, he thinks it is attractive. They are increasing their dividend, which makes the rise in interest rates less of a challenge for the price of this stock than for the price of other interest-sensitive stocks that are not growing their dividends. He expects more of the baby boomers to buy stocks like this, to get stable income with a little bit of growth.

Looks good. Technically, trading off of support. Peak support is $12.70. Lots of volume around this price. If drops below $12.30, exit, then no support until $11.50. Potential to go up to $14.50 by end of year. Set an exit point and stick to it. Have to be really disciplined with stocks like this.

A yieldco that he likes from a dividend perspective. Has some natural gas, so not a pure play on renewable energy. But if you want to take a step toward green investing, this company makes a lot of sense. A lot of the volatility in this stock is due to the broader stock market. Tension between growth plays versus impending crash. Really likes it. Slated to do well.

He thinks it will be a steady grower over the long term but he would be going to NPI-T for this exposure.  The acquisition they made in the US seems to be working well.  This is single digit growth company and we won't see the same number of takeovers occurring in the future.  As the acquisition is absorbed, the dividend will grow.  It is a good company to hold onto.  It pays a US$ dividend in case you need them.

It's a growth utiilty. It offers decent yield, but also 8-10% yearly growth. He thinks AQN will be serial raisers of their dividend. It's pulled back like all utilities, so under the current $13 is a good entry point. He expects a price rise to $14 plus the dividend. (Analysts' price target: $15.05)
