He likes and own telecoms. He likes Freedom Mobile and Shaw paying down debt. This is the cheaper play in this sector. Balance sheet is in good shape. Their latest report beat the street. They're growing their wireless division. Growth to come. (Analysts’ price target is $26.50)

They're now spending a lot to grow their wireless business and fighting off Telus. The telecoms are good investments now; they're defensive names.More people are at home using bandwidth, though gaining new phone users may be limited. You're paid a 5% dividend. You can but now. It's a duopoly out west, so little competition. He owns its peers instead.

A takeover coming? Managed well. He prefers Bell and Telus. Shaw is betting big on wireless. Telus and Shaw corner the western Canadian market, so it's not competitive. A safe business. COVID will impact wireless sales, though. There have been takeover rumours for a long time, so buy this for the wireless growth, instead. A very safe stock with a safe dividend. This hasn't moved much over time.

T-T, BCE-T, RCI.B-T, SJR.B-T. Telecom is the sector he is the most bullish on. It's his biggest position. It is the sector that is the most resilient. Online traffic has increased dramatically. T-T would not be the top of his telecom list. He would prefer SJR.B-T, BCE-T, and RCI.B-T because of their media businesses.

Shaw missed their last earnings due to increased competition in wireless (Shaw re-entered last year) with lower data packages. She owns few telcos, though they pay an attractive dividend. She prefers BCE who are national and pay a good, rising dividend.

Within the telcom group, he would prefer BCE. Shaw has been broadening their foot print trying to be more competitive. It is going through a transformation, so he would avoid this for now. Yield 4.4%

5G is going to be very expensive and it’ a big step. There’s also some controversy with Huawei. None of the telecom companies have come out with the cost. He wouldn’t step in to any of the telecom companies until we see more background cost data. However, we are going to 5G regardless.

It is moving sideways and it is near its upper range. It is okay to sell here to take profit, looking to buy it back at the lower end of the trading range (around $25).

Worries about telcos--lots of talk in the election about high telco rates. Canadians still pay a lot. He's tiptoeing away from telcos which may have regulations and come off.

He prefers Rogers and BCE. Telus' valuation is very good and moves in line with its peers. All the cable/telcos are a stable business with reasonable growth. But Shaw trades at 17x earnings and 8x EBITDA, so he prefers the others.

It is in a very competitive market. Recent results suggest the move to streaming is weighing on Shaw. There is increasing competition in the wireless space. It is too early to tell how they will do here. It is an oligopolistic industry so there are some limits to how high rates can go from here. It has a yield in excess of 4%. He would prefer to look at BCE-T or T-T instead.

He does not like this name. He is worried about its balance sheet and value. It makes sense to own Tel Co’s in a portfolio, but there are better names to own. It is trading at a 37 X P/E. He does not expect much growth in this name.

In the wireless space it is very CAP-X heavy. With 5-G coming it is a very expensive proposition. He would be shy to own it right now. It has gone sideways for a couple of years.

He likes how the company has been expanding their wireless business. Their controlling interest in Corus Entertainment is creating major headwinds – who would look to buy it? In the long term, it will be a decent investment, but he sees better alternatives.
