Q: Hello 5i Team,
I would like to expand my utilities exposure (beyond the positions I already hold in Emera and Fortis). I am considering taking a position in either Canadian Utilities or Capital Power. Both have similar yields and dividend growth over the past 5 years. Which of the two would you favour, and why? This is for a long-term income focused account.
Many thanks,

Q: Bought CU over CPX because of long history and large capital program to move CPX off coal.
Surprised Alberta power rates are good given their economy is languishing. Which do you see as the better option going forward for steady income and likely dividend increases above inflation rate (unlike CU of late)? Thanks.

Q: This is my margin portfolio, all position weightings are between 3%-5%.

The projected yield is 3.31% with a 3-5 year hold.

I realize 24 positions is a bit overkill but I can't seem to choose which to remove, which would you recommend?

What positions would you add to the portfolio?

Take as many credits as needed.

Thanks for the great service

Q: My question is regarding value metrics for CPX. I compared EV/Revenue for the above utilities and CPX is lowest at 4.66, followed by FTS at 5.96. FTS has the lowest P/B at 1.49; CPX is the next best at 2.00. As an income/value investor, is CPX a value diamond in the rough? I know it keeps missing estimates, but I would get a yield of about 5.5% while waiting for financial results to improve. Your comments very much appreciated.

Q: Peter; It seems to me that there is a general selling of the renewable area, AQN,CPX,BLX etc, . Just profit taking after the huge run up or a back to the past oil switch to the energy sector? Thanks,
