Q: In a TFSA, which of these two would you buy today? I know you have answered this question in the past - and that you’ve said to focus on yield, but doesn’t BEPC deserve some type of premium even in a registered account?

Q: Are there any catalyst, or catalysts, in insight to lift the renewable energy stocks out of their 2021 humdrum? Names in this sector are all down YTD from BEPC's highest of 33% to RWN's lowest of 7% - with no exception. Would you recommend a name in this group that would have the likeliest chance for a quick rebound / turnaround? Thanks.

Q: Non-registered account with goal of primarily dividend income has done quite well, with all of the noted holdings nicely in positive territory. In hind sight MG and SYZ would have been in a registered account. SYZ is up 63%, MG 24%.
Overall account yield is currently 3.8%. Would prefer it closer to 5%
Need some help with this "good problem". Take capital gain now and move into yieldier positions, or let running stocks run and deal with bigger gain in future?
If I move out of some of the growthier stocks, which div payers minimum 3% yield to move into?
Overall portfolio diversification is pretty decent, and diversification within this account does not have to be perfect - dividend security within this account is more important.

Q: Any reason why the renewable stocks are so weak in 2021?
For example, BEP.UN dropped almost 14% since 1/01/2021, and most other renewable stocks are similarly depressed YTD. I know this sector was up substantially in 2020. What changed? Market sentiments, or due to some more tangible reasons? Thanks.
