Q: Hello All,

Is it possible to rank my list of utility companies sorting via most financially vulnerable therefore most likely to underperform because of the increased cost of financing. i.e worst to best please.

Is that a blunt but reasonable filter?

Could it be that the "worst" companies have been so badly beaten up that they may be worth adding to for the long haul?


Many thanks

Q: I am a 60+ retired income investor,

I consider the above noted equities to be my riskiest holdings.

About 1,000 each - mostly in my cash account.

I understand SYZ reduced its dividend today and of course the issues with AQN.

Still up on AQN. Underwater on all the rest.

Looking for some advice - sell or hold by holding?

And of course any general comments would be appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Q: Hi
I have held SPB for a long time and my cost is $5.98 Over the years the stock has been more than paid for itself by the dividends.
It has been as high as $16.00 in the past year or so but now it is back below $10.00 again. It now yields over 7%. Is that out of line or even sustainable?
What could be the fundamental reason for this latest set-back? Winter is on it's way and global warming notwithstanding it will likely get colder.
They have continually been buying more assets and should that not make the shares more valuable?
Could I have your analyses please. H.
