Q: Its a given we are collectively heading (long term) toward a carbon neutral future. We have also seen how fragile current energy supply is with the shortages caused by current European conflicts.
So...the question is on nuclear. How viable is it as a source of clean stable energy going forward, and how does one get exposure to companies in this space CDN or US. I am slowly reducing my fossil fuel exposure and now hold the captioned stocks. BEP fits the mandate I'm sure; how about BP?

Q: Now that oil has recovered, I was thinking of selling my shares in XOM and wanted to buy some Canadian stocks. I am retired so I have a relatively low risk tolerance. How would you rate RY, BEP, and BAM. Are there other companies you would suggest that are stable and offer a decent dividend.

Q: Thank you for your response to my last question. As a follow-up, do the four utilities stocks that I currently own (BEP, FTS, AQN, NPI) offer adequate diversification within the sector? Just wondering if I should add to these (in the best to worst ranking you provided) or is there another utilities name (Cdn nor US) that you would add to be better diversified and if there is, would you sell one of my current 4 utility stocks or just add the other name?
Your insight much appreciated,

Q: Hi, I am looking to add to my utilities and currently have partial positions in BEP, FTS, AQN and NPI, none of which have moved much of late. I am looking at adding FLNC as a partial position thinking that it may have more growth potential.
1) Can I get your opinion of FLNC for long-term hold/moderate risk tolerance?
2) Can you rank the 4 stocks currently owned from best to worst, again with a long-term time frame/moderate risk?
Thank you as always for your insight.

Q: I own BEP and BEPC in the same U.S. registered account and would like to consolidate. Is there an advantage in going one way or the other. My initial thought is to sell BEPC and buy more BEP . I would appreciate your thoughts.

Q: Greetings 5i.

I would like your view on the following. Would you prefer to buy a basket of power utilities (FTS/H/AQN etc) to create a hybrid ETF for sector exposure? (if so, can you provide a list of your favorites?) Or is it worth the mer to buy an ETF that has most of them embedded within? In which case, which ETF would you recommend?

Many thanks for your help.

Q: Hello 5i team,
You mentioned in a previous response that you would not expect BEP to have the same high returns as in previous years. Can you briefly elaborate more on this?

Since BEP is in a dip, I wanted to purchase the US equivalent shares. Are you still comfortable with this company (you give it an A rating)?

Thank You,
