Q: hi,
I own these as a basket of these smaller renewable stocks ( I own other larger names including Brookfield renew. as well ). the share price of these is struggling. what are your current thoughts on the balance sheets, growth prospects etc. If possible could you rate as a buy, hold,sell, and flag any that are in significant financial difficulty. my feelings are to just hold them all, perhaps a few get takeover offers, and prices move up when rates go down?
cheers, chris

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: Considering a switch from PLC and/or CTS to TVK, and one of SIS or NPI for TSU. What are your general thoughts on either move - higher risk, higher reward?

Thanks in advance. - Jeff

Q: I have held NPI for sometime and am down almost 8%. I know you're not a big fan of the stock currently and prefer BEP, H or FTS. That said, 9 of 9 analysts are rating NPI as a Strong Buy. None of the others are rated as highly. What are you seeing that they do not?

Q: How would you rank these electricity producers for a 5 year hold, probably longer.

Q: Another tax loss question. Currently down 19% on EIF and 11% on NPI in a non-registered account. (Interesting to note analysts are giving both 'strong buy' recommendations.) First, EIF. Would you sell, sell and repurchase, or stand pat? And if your recommendation is to sell and repurchase, would you repurchase before year end or wait 'til the new year? With regard to NPI, would you sell and repurchase? Stand pat? Or replace it with something like H? (BIP and BEP already held). The goal with both stocks is income with some growth. Thank you.

Q: Dear 5i team.

Of the badly beaten up Utilitiy stocks, please rank the top three from the worst five that have the best chance of significant bounce once interest rates peak or decline.
A couple reasons why for each would help as well.

Many thanks for your help.

Q: Can you please tell me the estimated forward P/E for the above 4 utilities. Could you please rate from best to worse for potential total return over the next 2-3 years.
Read Answer Asked by Grant on October 12, 2023
Q: These stocks seem to be in a serious downtrend, in the case of NPI more than cut in half. What's going on? Interest rates aside are investors just giving up on "going green"? Or are these unbelievable bargains like the Canadian banks in 08/09?
