Q: Hi 5i,

Portfolio analytics is recommending that I reduce my utility holdings 12%. I have held AQN (3.4% weight), FTS (4.3%), BEP (5.2%) and BIP (5%) for four years and do like the dividends and renewable energy aspect. Today's TD analyst comments also gave me pause about being overweight utilities: "As WTI oil and energy prices have recovered over the past year on rising interest rates, alternative energy and utilities in general have underperformed. We believe that a potential rise in interest rates on improving COVID-19 trends and impending
tapering, along with the renewed relative strength in the energy sector, will
further pressure the utilities sector." My questions for you:. 1. where and how would you trim from the above holdings? and 2. your thoughts on the analysis outlined above. Thanks for your guidance.

Q: Is there an explanation of why the 4 year revenue growth is so different between BIP.UN and BIPC? Here is the data I get from RBC Direct Investing for 2017 to 2020:

BIP.UN: 3,535.0 | 4,652.0 | 6,597.0 | 8,885.0 for a 4 year CAGR of 26%
BIPC: 1,323.0 | 1,561.0 | 1,619.0 | 1,430.0 for a 4 year CAGR of 2%

Of course the amounts are going to be different, but I expected the growth to be similar between the two. Whaaaat?

Q: Hello 5i, I notice that comments are made as to the takeover of Interpipe IPL relating to both BIP and BIPC as the take over company's. What is the relationship of BIP and BIPC as to who really will own IPL now. Also which company BIP or BIPC would look better to invest in. I was a IPL share owner and submitted my shares for the cash option.
