Edison International: High Quality at a Discount

By Roger S. Conrad on Jan. 12, 2020

In February 2018, I recommended Edison International (NYSE: EIX) as a new Aggressive Holding. Shares had taken just a big hit on concern the company would be held liable for billions in 2017 wildfire damages under the state’s “inverse condemnation” law.

South Jersey Industries: Regulated Franchise at a Reasonable Price

By Roger S. Conrad on Dec. 9, 2019

After a decade as the primary focus of utility M&A, regulated assets don’t come cheap. But when a high flyer drops back to a good entry point, we jump. And that’s now the case for natural gas distributor South Jersey Industries (NYSE: SJI).

Big Midstream for Growth and Income

By Roger S. Conrad on Nov. 11, 2019

Sustainability worries about North American shale oil and gas production, governance concerns and an ugly half-decade of dividend cuts convinced many investors to flee the midstream energy sector and never look back.

Chevron Corp: Safe Bet on Energy Convergence

By Roger S. Conrad on Oct. 7, 2019

Outside of regulated utilities, no group of companies has demonstrated greater long-term resilience than super oils like Top 10 DRIP Chevron Corp (NYSE: CVX). That’s still true despite what many consider their greatest challenge yet: Global decarbonization.

Pembina Pipeline: Building Midstream Growth the Safe Way

By Roger S. Conrad on Sep. 8, 2019

Over the past 15 years, Conservative Holding Pembina Pipeline Corp (TSX: PPL, NYSE: PBA) has endured two wholesale depressions in Alberta’s energy patch—and the Canadian government’s death sentence on its former income trust structure.

Exelon Corp: Back to its Utility Roots

By Roger S. Conrad on Aug. 5, 2019

In summer 2013, Exelon Corp (NYSE: EXC) cut its quarterly payout from 52.5 cents to 31 cents per share. The 41 percent reduction was a tacit admission that no US carbon tax would save the nation’s largest nuclear power fleet from falling wholesale electricity prices.

BCE Inc: Time to Pick Up Some of Canada’s Telecom King

By Roger S. Conrad on Jul. 5, 2019

Communications has been a tough business throughout North America for years. But Conservative Holding BCE Inc (TSX: BCE, NYSE: BCE) has consistently gained revenue and market share. The company today operates Canada’s Best in class network on the verge of 5-G adoption.

Take Another Look at Old Ma Bell

By Roger S. Conrad on Jun. 9, 2019

From its humble beginnings as the old Southwestern Bell, AT&T Inc (NYSE: T) emerged from the competitive free-for-all following 1996 deregulation as one of America’s big two telecoms. And revenues, earnings and dividends have risen consistently ever since.

Algonquin Power & Utilities: Adding a Fourth Growth Driver

By Roger S. Conrad on May. 8, 2019

Conservative Holding Algonquin Power & Utilities (TSX: AQN, NYSE: AQN) has roughly $5 billion in market capitalization. It’s sparsely represented in indexes and individual investors hold nearly half the float. The result is few US-based analysts cover the stock, despite the fact that US operations generated 95 percent of the company’s 2018 revenue.

Brookfield Renewable: Another Coup for Conservative Growth

By Roger S. Conrad on Apr. 8, 2019

There’s no faster way to grow a business than by making acquisitions. The trick few master is finding deals with upside from simply following core competencies, and made at the right price. But neither has been a problem for Conservative Holding Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners (TSX: BEP-U, NYSE: BEP).
