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.

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.

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.

This stock’s situation is similar to Fortis: dropping over the past year because of interest rate sensitivity but a defensive stock that will continue to pay a good dividend as the market goes down. This is smaller than Fortis and more volatile. This company is small for his portfolio--he prefers larger-cap names, so he would not buy it, but someone who owns it should continue to hold it.

Parts of the market where you want to flock to during the summer. One of those defensive summer names. High yield. May to August is the period of strength. Not a home run stock but provides a volatility hedge. If rates go much higher, it could have problems. Classic shoulder-head-shoulder from a technical perspective.

A high quality utility name.  The share price is declining.  There is actually nothing negative with the business itself.  It is just the market re-pricing the multiple due to rising interest rates.  There is more volatility and downside coming.

They announced today very good earnings and boosted dividends by 10%.  It will not get overly hurt by rising interest rates.  He also likes the “green” element of their business.  The dividend is sustainable.  Yield 5.1%.  (Analysts’ price target is $15.10 )

A yield proxy. Its growth is not what it used to be. If you are going to invest in a yield proxy in a rising interest rate environment you need one of this two things: really good valuations or really good growth. He thinks these guys have that good growth with a joint venture they just got into.

He does not own any of the power trusts.  This one has been pretty good and has gone out and acquired assets to grow.  It has headwinds outlined at the start of the show.  It is hard to offset the leverage with growth that they have to have in order to meet the dividend.

Added this name a few months ago. The dividend is safe. They have a project backlog that will support its cash-flow growth. AQN recently entered a joint venture with a Spanish utility. AQN is growing its renewable presence, which she likes. Good growth profile here.

This has been a really good name for him but it has done the heavy lifting now.  The payout ratio is creeping up a bit.  He would sell calls on this.  It probably will not be doing any heavy lifting going forward.

HOLD

A high dividend yield stock with a healthy balance sheet.  A double-top has formed, so he would be patient.  A drop below $12.20 would be dangerous.  The credit market is under stress and since this company needs capital, they will have to pay more to borrow money as interest rates rise.  You should wait a couple of weeks to see how things go.

Utility company. 75% of their profits come through regulated operations primarily in the US. Very stable cash flows. Yield is 4.6%. Regulated utilities have rate cases every so many years, so over time they are allowed to adjust rates if interest rates go up. They are expanding internationally as well. (Analysts’ price target is $15.50)

(A Top Pick March 24/17 -  Up 0.07%.)  Higher growth compared to its peers. A better story until bond yields started to move up. This is a name that could give you singles from here but is not going to do the heavy lifting in your portfolio.

Utilities are out of favor, which presents a buying opportunity. She sold Inter Pipeline and bought this in preference. This is 75% regulated utility in the US, with 25% renewable power generation. It can grow the dividend by 10% every year until 2021 (it is 4.6% now). Announced a joint venture with a Spanish company, which gives it another path for growth. (Analysts' price target is $15.72).

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick March 13/17. Up 9%.) An absolute gem, but is cautious with utilities including AQN at least for now. You can hold it for five years and forget about it. If you're a trader, now's a good time to get out, because of overall situation with utilities, rising interest rates and servicing their debt.

COMMENT

The sector is under some pressure. This has had a short-term hit moving down from $14.40 to $13.30. This company does have a pretty good dividend growth, which makes it more attractive than many in the sector. However, it is not going to lead the market. If you are looking for total return, growth and capital plus some dividend growth, you might want to look elsewhere. (See Top Picks.)

Owns this in a few of her client's portfolios, and one she would potentially add to as well.

Has an attractive yield. A good name to own.

Just below the current price, the moving averages have come in. Below that, we are looking at $12.90 for the next support. $12.90 is a good place to buy, and above $14.30 is a screaming buy.

This has a pretty nice chart pattern this year. There is an upward trend from 2015 with a flag showing this year. The long mast pole it is showing is usually a pretty strong indication of a continuation. There is a lower boundary of around $12.70, where the market is going to come in. If it goes above the $14.60, you will get a break out. If it came down to the lower trend line in the next 3-4 months, he would probably be a buyer.

Has looked at this many times, but prefers others. This one is kind of a growthier utility. The stock has done well and will continue to do so. They are talking 8%-10% dividend growth for the next 2 to 3 years. Dividend yield of 4.25%.

Canadian utility companies seem to be making acquisitions for growth. She owns this in some of her utility accounts. Utilities are focused on renewables, which is a positive. A nice trend for the future. They recently made a $500 million equity issue, which is why the stock pulled back, as they usually do an issue below the market price. Longer-term, this is an attractive investment and offers an attractive dividend yield.
