A good way if you want some US exposure is through dividend paying stocks. Historically dividends grow and hopefully the stocks will go up. The best place for dividends in the US is in the utility area. He likes both American Electric Power (AEP-N) which has good growth and good dividends and Iowa Telecom (IWA-N) which pays around 8/9%.

The main reason he owns this stock is for the yield. Yield is 5.6% which is hard to get. Dividend will not be going up in the near future, but it's quite safe here. They bought Allstream which was contoversial, but gives it a growth opportunity.

Has been disappointed with management. They've sold assets too cheaply or hanging on to ones they should be selling. Their core business keeps getting eaten away by their competitors.

Had disappointed him in the past. They are in good markets, but just didn't seem to be executing as well. Earnings kept coming in below expectations. Stock has turned around since the beginning of the spring and it could be a good long term one because they're in the right markets.
