Q: Given the current direction of the Canadian economy, my goal is to focus the majority of my investments in the US. According to Portfolio Analytics, currently 53% of my portfolio is US, 46% Canadian (the remainder being international). I believe my US holdings are significantly under-rated given the Canadian stocks I hold. I would appreciate ballpark figures regarding the US/international component of the following TSX listed stocks: WSP, TFII, BIPC, BEPC, BAM, BN, and HPS.A. This will enable me to get a better handle on what my actual US/international holdings are. Thank you.

Q: Please explain the difference of the business aspect between BN & BAM. As well, how do BEPC and BIPC related to either BN or BAM.

If I wanted to trim the number of Brookfield investments by owing one or two, which one would you recommend and reasons please.

Thank you,

Q: Hi, I hold both of these and while both seemed to be recovering a while back, BEPC headed back down and now BIPC is also tanking the last few days. What's your view on these two Brookfield companies? Do I sell one or both or hold and wait this out? Thanks for your help as always.

Q: One of life's little mysteries. BMO Investor line shows me as having" interest income" from BIPC and BEPC but no dividends. These are not the limited partnership shares. BAM shows as paying dividends. I have a call into BMO but wonder if you can shed light on this. Many thanks Al

Q: HI 5i,
I would like to initiate a position in Brookfield Infrastructure. I know the difference between BIPun and BIPC on how they are taxed. I would choose to buy BIP.un in a registered account, or BIPC in a regular account. BUT, the price difference is ridiculous ($40 vs $47). And the data I see on YahooFinance do not match, even if these two are more or less equivalent. Eg:
BIP.un: Eps=0.19 P/E=212
BIPC Eps=1.15 P/E=40
Could you clarify where is the truth in these numbers?

Q: I have core positions in all Brookfield entities. I've read a lot lately about higher demand for electricity and the need to expand electricity production capabilities. Are there other firms directly involved in the building out and monitoring of electricity supply, either nuclear or conventional that I should be looking into?
Thanks in advance. David

Q: I hold a 2% position of BDGI in a non registered account and considering it has had a decent run lately and reached 5i price target would it be a good trade to sell and buy into BIPC and or BEPC. I already have about a 2% position in BIPC and 1% in BIPC and collectively have about 9.4% position in the Brookfield group of companies (BAM -2.15%, BN - 4.3% BIPC -2% and BEPC -1%). I am thinking that lower interest rates would be favourable and the dividends are a good bonus. Your insight would greatly appreciated.

Q: In my RRIF , I am looking at selling one of these stocks to buy UMAX for its higher yield and diversified holdings. Forgetting portfolio composition , please provide the order in which you would sell first (1) and then to last (5).
Thanks. Derek.

Q: Hi,

Thank you for answering Scott's question today (Jan 30, 2024) and choosing BIPC. His question didn't include all the components of BN behemoth. I know your favorite is BN for growth and BAM for dividends. Can you rank order others, especially BEPC/BIP? To one of earlier questions about energy stocks you chose BEPC. I understand the rationale there. If you were to ignore the energy sector where would BEPC stand?
Many thanks.

Q: 9:51 AM 1/20/2024
Does the US newly instituted tax rule on limited partnerships doing any business in the US now apply to BEP.UN, BIP.UN. BEPC, BIPC?
I have owned these for many years and all have very large capital gains in cash accounts so I am reluctant to sell them due to the crippling 10% 'disposition' tax on top of the big capital gain were I to sell. It seems I am caught in a tax trap! I would appreciate any advice on which ones are vulnerable to the tax and what to do.

Q: Regarding BIP.UN and BIPC, you answered to a member back in early November: ďThese are 'paired' companies and economically equivalent, owning the same assets. They are essentially the same company exactly.Ē Then, why is BIP.UN down -1.51% and BIPC down -14.50% over the last 3 years? I got those percentages from the Company Profile section, comparing the 2 companies together using the Interactive Chart with Percentage Change. Thank you

Q: Hi team,
BIPC is currently still 45% below its 52week high. Bn is now only 4% below its 52week high . Do you see BIPC playing catch up here ? Is it not a more compelling buy at this point than Bn while itís down here , plus itís almost 5% div ? I was looking for your thoughts if it would be wise to buy some BIPC at these levels and collect the nice div while waiting or sp recovery ?

Thanks ,
