Q: If I were to sell all or half of my shares in Algonquin Power could you name two or three good replacements. Same field but more growth oriented. Decent fundamentals are important. Thanks.

Q: Want to enter the green energy space to take advantage of the required doubling of our electrical power capacity in Canada and US to meet climate change targets. Brookfield Renewable Partners, First Solar, SolarEdge and Ormat all seem to have merit. Which of these, or another company, would you recommend. Thanks!

Q: Hi 5i,
do you think AQN, BEP.UN, BEPC, BLX and NPI might experience some tax loss selling pressure for the remainder of 2021?
Can you rate them in order of purchase preference with #1 being the most favoured for an income portfolio.

Q: Hi
I also hold BEP/UN and AQN. Being that BEPC is at break even now, I am wondering if I should hold it, or switch it out for BLX if BLX has more potential for growth over time. Would you have a different suggestion than BLX? Your thoughts on this would be appreciated!

Q: Thanks for the wonderful work from the team. I am holding BRLXF since past 2 years. Have a good 100% gain. However in past 6 months its down significant from about $40 to $30. Do you still see a good growth potential for the stock or would you recommend something else in this sector. Holding period is long 5+ and comfortable with risk and volatility.
Also any recommendation on any ETF or something else where one can park cash component of the Portfolio. I hold about 10% of portfolio in cash to be deployed at times when market is over sold .

Q: Despite the pullback in "green" energy stocks they still look expensive to me (AQN a possible exception). BLX and PIF have forward E/P over 50x according to the Globe.
Would you expect a better entry point, and if choosing an ETF do you have a preference between ZCLN and HCLN.

Q: My question is regarding value metrics for CPX. I compared EV/Revenue for the above utilities and CPX is lowest at 4.66, followed by FTS at 5.96. FTS has the lowest P/B at 1.49; CPX is the next best at 2.00. As an income/value investor, is CPX a value diamond in the rough? I know it keeps missing estimates, but I would get a yield of about 5.5% while waiting for financial results to improve. Your comments very much appreciated.
