Q: In anticipation of a possible recession in the near future, I would like to slowly tweak a few of my holdings. Could you please list some of the best sectors to hold in a recession, and if possible, list a few excellent Canadian companies in each sector and perhaps some US stocks. What may be the worst sectors to hold in a recession? Sorry, this is a big question, but one that I think many members may be thinking about.

Q: I am drastically under invested in utilities. I presently hold the following - each is under a 1% weighting - AQN, ACO, BIPC, BEPC, BEP.UN, CU, and Fortis. Which would you sell? Which would you add to? All are in corporate non reg acct. Also want to increase my US and International exposure. Is there a reason not to do it in this sector?
Would appreciate US and International companies you favour. 5 year hold.
Thank you.

Q: This is another US company question which I recognize is not your area of full coverage. The company is Southern - an electricity utility in the US. Four US analysts have it as a "sell" and many others as a hold. I'm wondering if this is largely because of the shift away from interest sensitive stocks or for some other reason. Wondering if you have an opinion on this company as a purchase for dividend yield and relative security (recognizing that the share price could drop further). I don't currently own it. Thanks and Happy New Year Don
