Compare Preferred's Of Green Energy Utilities

Using this table you can compare all the preferred shares issued by the Green Energy Canadian Utilities.  These companies produce at least 50% of their power from renewable resources such as hydro, wind and solar.  Most utilities have a growing renewable power segment as they begin to shift away from fossil fuels. For a utility to be included in this list, it must produce over 50% of their power from renewable sources. We also want to point out those companies with a 100% renewable power generation in the following list:

  • Innergex Renewable Power

All types of preferred’s are included (perpetual, fixed, floating) in one table. The information is presented in an easy to understand format. This way you can pick the right share to purchase or sell. As with any other investment decision, the same metrics should be used.  Each investor has a unique selection process and looks at the same metric differently.

  1. Some investors looking for high yield over the next 5 years will put more emphasis on the “Blended Yield” metric.
  2. More weight should be given to the “Rating” metric if you are looking for the highest credit worthy issues.
  3. Good value is indicated by metric “rate increase percent”.  This also highlights the stocks with the most room for capital gains if rates start going up.

We expect each investor to review the various metrics and make a determination on the totality of their values while at the same time expressing their personal investing style. If you need more information on how to use the metrics below, see our how to YouTube video  or our post how to pick the best preferred share of a company.
