Q: Good morning all;

I currently own 4 energy infrastructure firms in tax sheltered accounts; amounting to 7% weighting in my portfolio. As part of an overall portfolio review i've concluded I'd like to get that down to 2; for a combination dividends and growth. My question is - which would be your preferred 2 with these parameters.

Thanks as always.

Dave

Q: Which 3 Canada Energy stocks (besides SU and ENB) do you currently favour for a 5-10+ year hold?

Please feel free to suggest a company not present in the stock list.

Q: Your comment on the tax issue regarding Edís question today regarding selling ENB to buy another pipeline is bang on. There are several considerations: for a stock to rise 25% to make the switch profitable is quite a challenge and may take years to accomplish ; the 2% differential in yield between ENB and PPL is a ( almost guaranteed) benefit received every quarter, not down the road when sold ; higher growth does not necessarily mean higher share price. Trades like this should only occur when something fundamentally and significantly has negatively happened to the company as many stocks in a sector correlate quite closely to one another. Please shot holes in my discussion. Thanks. Derek.

Q: I currently hold Enbridge in a taxable account and I am thinking of selling it and purchasing a stock in the same sector that has more growth and likely a smaller yield. While I prefer Canadian companies US listed stocks would be considered if they are more attractive.
With appreciation,
Ed

Q: Iím an income investor. Basically I live off my dividend stream without the need to touch capital. In this approach, periodically I look for opportunities to bump up my income stream. I see that PPL is pretty close to its highs and that it only raised its dividend marginally last year. This is the sort of situation where I consider perhaps a switch to something paying a higher dividend with a potential of higher stock price appreciation over a longer period of time. Iím thinking of moving into some combination of BNS, ENB, maybe even BCE. what do you think??

Q: Hello again, I was not very clear on my question re: additions to Canadian dividend growth portfolio. I would like your top 5 preferences out of the 10 stocks listed, which are all currently held.

The suggestions you made are fine and most of those are also held, but for various reasons including existing position sizes I want to add to the group indicated. Thank you.

Q: Greetings, the above companies are all currently held (among others) in a Canadian dividend growth portfolio. For new money, what would be your top 5 choices to add to today? Long-term hold, income and stability with growth potential are key criteria. Would also like to maintain some sector diversification.

Thank you.

would you consider most undervalued.

Q: Hi Team,
I have a position in PPL and would lean towards switching to TRP since I see more growth in the name at the current valuation.

I owned ENB in the past mostly for its high dividend yield. Would you favor a switch in TRP or ENB and why?

Thank you !
