Q: Hi, follow up the on the previous question about AQN and their dividend versus Cashflow and earnings: The dividend is $0.44 per share but the Free Cashflow per share is -$0.35. Doesn't that mean that if they killed the dividend the company would have free cash per share of $0.09 and therefore be adding cash per quarter instead of losing cash?

Am I reading this wrong? AQN seems to be reducing the financial capacity of the company to pay the dividend. Wouldn't a more appropriate practice be to pay the dividend out of free cash?

Q: In your opinion, is it worth holding on to AQN for the potential benefits of it's renewable business sale/split (and whatever other news follows), or sell now and invest in to companies with more proven management and stability e.g. I'd be putting the proceeds mainly in to BNS and TD.

Q: I held AQN in two separate accounts for over a year, I sold AQN in the account that had the largest position (80%) and I've hung on to AQN in the other account.

I thought of replacing AQN with NPI to maintain my sector exposure, I've yet to make that purchase.....why???? I've been side tracked with the idea of buying BEP.... Can you folks please wade in, would appreciate some of your thoughts and rationale.

Happy Holidays to the staff and readers

Q: Hello Peter,
I am thinking of increasing my weight to 5 percent for Fortis. I understand that the company has been stable for long time with increasing dividends, but is it possible that it could run into headwinds as Algonquin did? I am wondering if i should stick to 3 percent and put the other 2 percent in hydro one and Emera.. Thanks very much

Q: I own the companies in question in an unregistered investment account. To offset some capital gains I was thinking of divesting myself of some of these investments. Please rate them in order of disposition in your opinion. I am a retired investor who believes in companies with a history of dividends. Additionally, can you suggest 3 potential investment replacements, thanks.

Appreciate your insight.
