Q: Good morning,
May I have 5is opinion (pros and cons) regarding the following please.
I have just rolled my RSP into a RIF and am thinking of selling AQN and SPB and consolidating into ZWU. My thinking is that this will in a simpler more stable way of provide equal to better performance (income with some growth) over time. Do my thoughts have merit? I also hold BEP.UN as well as FTS.

Thank you for your thoughts and opinion.

Q: I have no utilities in my RRSP portfolio at this time. What are you preferred utilities in order of preference to buy now for total return (dividend and potential growth)? Any preferences among these that I'm thinking about being Fortis (FTS.TO / FTS), Emera (EMA.TO), Brookfield Infrastructure (BIPC.TO), Brookfield Renewable (BEPC.TO)?

Q: If one has exposure to renewables through a large position in Brookfield Corporation (owner of 25% of BEP) and Fortis, do you think it makes sense to hold onto a small position in Northland Power? (which has showed promise over the years but has unperformed the market significantly the past 18 months)

Q: Hello,
I have accumulated two large positions in Royal Bank and Fortis inside my TFSA, with the intent of collecting the dividend income stream throughout retirement for 25 years and then cashing them out.
I find myself needing to sell one in order to raise some cash.
Which one would YOU sell? Or sell half of each?

Q: Retired, dividend-income investor. I hold AQN in my RRSP, bought it in 2011 at $5.60 (not a typo) and have trimmed it multiple times due to asset allocation. Not that it matters, but I am still up 15% over my ACB.

Looking forward is what really matters. AQN is up roughly 20% from it's low of around $9/share. Q#1 = Do you think AQN can continue their short term performance?

I hold AQN, FTS, TRP, NNRG, NRGI, and utility-energy stocks held within CDZ, ZLB, ZWC. Q#2 = What conservative utility or infrastructure stocks should I consider that might "fill the gap" in my current holdings? Please list 4-6 stocks for me to do further research on.

Q#3 = Should a component of "renewables" be a consideration? That was one of the reasons for holding AQN. Ideas?

So the bottom line is = what's done is done. AQN appears to be starting to recover and there is always the chance of being bought out.
1. Hold of sell,
2. Replace with what,
3. Include renewables?

Thanks for your help....Steve
