Q: As a retired investor, I am keen on stocks with low betas, high dividends and some growth. AQN, NPI and BEP all meet these criteria and are all up significantly, riding on a crest of green sentiment. These three stocks now compromise 13.5% of my total portfolio. I am loathe to part with my green energy stocks as they are doing so well. That said, have I put too many eggs in one basket? At what percent should I cap my green energy investment? Other than higher interest rates, what could impact continued growth in this sector?

On a related note, I am now overweight in utilities, which now represent 21% of my total portfolio. This includes the three above-mentioned stocks, plus Fortis and BEP. Would you suggest reducing this weighting? And if so, which stock(s )would you be inclined to sell?

Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i,
My BEP holding is up 70% and represents 5.2% of my portfolio. I see you are recommending trimming in your model portfolio. I was considering a trim sometime this year but I was thinking it would make sense to wait for the "free" new company shares that are being allocated later this year (1 for every 4 shares). Does this thinking make sense?
