Q: Good Morning,

Retired income investor. Large position in BN with very low yield but growth potential.. Wondering if you thought it would be a good move to sell BN and buy BIPC, BEPC and BAM or any other suggestions. Have some of each already. Don’t need the money but this would improve cash flow which could be used to purchase more equities.

Q: Do you know the reason that BIPC and BIP.un have been heading in different directions since the beginning of February. I thought that they were supposed to mimic each other. I own BIP.un for the yield in a tax sheltered account but maybe I should switch. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

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
