A mortgage REIT. Not as exposed to the various refinancing programs being rolled out in the US as Annaly Capital Management (NLY-N), so is a little more insulated. They are frequent issuers of capital, so he would wait for an equity raise.

He uses this as a “cash equivalent” so when he has access cash he puts it in here rather than overnight term deposits. You won’t have dividend growth with this one. Increasingly, people will sell out of this as they grow concerned that the dividend might be cut. Payout ratio is low. Wireline telephony is in secular decline.

Missed on the 2nd quarter, probably due to their acquisition of Provident. This acquisition gave them more exposure to frac spreads. Great midstream operator. They do transport, storage and terminaling for heavy oil out of the oil sands. Cheap. 5.8% distribution.

Have electrical transmission, generation and distribution mainly in the Northeast US, Atlantic Canada and the Caribbean. Great management. Balance sheet is in great shape. Probably worth around $36, so wouldn’t add at these levels. Buy below $34. 3.9% dividend.

Power generation. Has a couple of assets that you have to keep an eye on. Balance sheet and payout ratio were in trouble so distribution was cut and may have to be cut more. It had collapsed 23% in one day, he bought, it went up 9% in one day and he Sold.

Margins are much better on engineering consulting than on construction. Owns this but probably won’t keep it. He would be a buyer below $20. 6.8% dividend yield.
