Emera vs. Fortis Emera doesn't have enough capital to fulfill its growth plans, so they need to raise it while they pay a 5.6% dividend--difficult. He prefers Fortis, which is better capitalized with better growth prospects. But they're both slow growers, not super-accretive. For dividend growth, look to a Canadian bank instead. Dividends: 5.6% vs. 3.9%

Just had a 20% correction, so it's now a good time to look at it. It's down, because it's taking time to get approval for some well pads in northeast BC. He expects they will get approval. But some fast-money investors got out which blasted out this stock. It's well-run with visionary managers. Fast growth. Strong balance sheet. Trading on par with its peers, but outgrowing them easily. Just signed a deal with Altagas to market their propane in Asia through the Ridley Terminal at attractive prices. He bought some personally at $8. Investors are neglecting this. It's a screaming buy. (no dividend, Analysts' price target: $12.03)
