A Canadian green utility that's growing. They're expanding globally aggressively. There's huge offshore wind potential worldwide. NPI has wind farms in the north Atlantic and they just opened one in Taiwan and bought one in Colombia. Tremendous opportunity here. It pays over a 4.5% dividend yield. (Analysts’ price target is $29.25)

He owns three others in the renewable space but nothing wrong with this one. It has been treading water because a large shareholder sold a large amount of stock. They are trying to stabilize the revenue mix. There are some power purchase agreements that will go down to zero over the next few years and so they are trying to back fill that in. They are going global and going into off-shore wind. They took some risks that paid off. They may not increase the dividend any time soon.

The majority of assets are in Canada or Europe. They have clean-burning Natural gas generation, on-shore wind, solar, and off-shore wind in Europe. They are focused on renewable. He likes this name because they have a leg up on off-shore wind development globally. There is going to be tremendous growth in this sector but you need the expertise that this company has. (Analysts’ price target is $29.00)

They just made an acquisition in a utility in Colombia, but the founder also sold a lot of shares a while ago. The valuation is stretched like most utilities, but NPI will continue to perform. You're more likely to get hit with an earnings surprise with NPI as opposed to AQN or Emera, but NPI is overall good.

The dividend hasn't risen that much. They've made progress in their offshore wind project, as well as a project in Mexico. Their Q2 results were the same as results from a year ago. They need to keep growing to pay down debt and pay dividends.

Also owns AQN and likes both. He owns more of AQN. NPI will grow because they have the science to grow green energy and are improving with it. They have the financing, too. It's getting easier to finance "alternate energy" which is swiftly moving into the mainstream. Both are long-term holds.

Cheaper than peers? It trades at a discount to its peers as there has been no new product development for them. This will change at year end into 2020. At some point it will catch up in value. There has been an overhang as to whether the largest shareholder would hold or sell their shares. That is done now. They have just bought into a regulated Colombian infrastructure play to get stability of revenues. Yield 4.7%

It is one of his largest positions. He has been purchasing. He did not like the transaction. Maybe it brings them some diversification. You have to be worried about what they will pay but it is not big enough to hurt the one way or another. He continues to own.

AQN-T vs. NPI-T. He likes the sector. It is not a pure utility play. AQN-T has a nice upward trend. They have come off a little bit. They diverged since July. He is looking at whether they will come off a little more. Sept and Oct tend to be the worst performing months.

(A Top Pick Jun 21/19, Up 2%) Hasn't sold any. Loves it. He'd name it a top pick again, but it's too soon. They just reported earnings with great free cash flow which will lead to share buybacks and dividend increases. Everything is on track here.

It will do well with falling interest rates. It mostly holds long-term contracts in renewable energy, so there's no pricing risk (but Ontario's renewal rates will probably be at lower prices). Ranks in the top 3% of his valuation metrics. Has good price momentum. High ROE. They carry a lot of debt, like all utilities, but NPI has stable earnings. Trades at 10x EV to EBITDA, cheaper than most utilities. Yield of 4.7% based on a good 80% payout. They have some good projects on the go. Expect growth. (Analysts’ price target is $27.80)

You can keep holding it. All utilities have done quite well. If it is a big overall position you may want to trim it.

Tends to stick to the pure plays. This is one that has some natural gas within their portfolio. Mid-side on the dividend at 4.65% with the potential for some upside as they do continue to grow.

Wind in the North Sea. They started in Canada. They decided two years ago whether to put themselves up for sale and it did not go through. It has stable cash flows and there is potential for a rising dividend. Debt goes up when projects are build and then when completed, cash flow goes up and debt goes down. He sees good prospects for it going forward.
