A lot is happening in telecoms. Unfortunately, you are fighting a real headwind. The chart shows lower highs and lower lows. There are probably higher rates over time. This name is going to face a wall of sellers, as every time this creeps up a little, more people are going to want to Sell to get their money back. He wouldn't advise anyone to look at this space right now.

Don’t add more. It is a tough, competitive market. These are your lifeboat stocks. They are to protect you on the downside if we ever have a correction. It won’t keep up with the broader market, however.

As a buy and hold, blue chip, dividend stock, you would not get hurt by this stock. People need less access to traditional TV now. A home phone is not all that relevant today. It will be hard for investors to pay higher valuations for the same kind of earnings. He thinks there is a risk of the multiple falling slowly over time.

He loves the dividend on this. You’re getting over a 5% yield. Management has done a very good job through the acquisition of Time Warner, because they understand that cell phones and cell phone pricing can’t hold up forever. Eventually you are simply going to be paying for a data plan and not on minutes anymore. The company not only bought DirecTV, but also Time Warner, and are trying to become an end to end media company where they control cell, data, the pipe, and then media as well. You can stream HBO for free through your AT&T data plan, which they are using to lure subscribers. A very creative way to use that part of the portfolio. Dividend yield of 5.6%.

To understand this company, it is worthwhile to look at the whole sector. The ETF (IYZ-N) looks pretty sick. Wire line telecom is not an attractive business. When people are saying the yield is good, that really means the price is dropping. You don’t want to own things that act like bonds in a rising rate environment.

There is nothing wrong with this or others, other than that there is a tremendous amount of competition, particularly on the wireless side. Telecoms is a defensive sector, and is not going to perform well in an environment where the economy is expanding, and people will be buying technology, financials, consumer discretionary and industrials. It pays almost a 5.5% dividend. You have to be careful about chasing higher yielders. This is not expected to grow dividends in any significant way, over the next several years. Would treat this with caution.

This has a bit of a headwind. In a rising interest rate environment, telecoms tend not to do well. In the midst of buying Time Warner, which has not been approved yet. They are making decisions on whether they want to be a landline company or a cell company, which will affect their future fundamental growth. He has stepped away from telecoms, because there is a lot of unknowns, some of it with regulators.

Kind of ho-hum here. Down 11% year to date while the S&P is up 10%. It does offer a juicy 5.2% dividend yield. His concern is, where is the growth. Landline is not growing and is going in reverse. Even the wireless service is a very mature market and doesn’t seem to be growing. Now they are throwing money at acquisitions and have paid a lot of money for Dish to expand their video offerings, but he is not sure they are getting what they bargained for. They are in the process of closing the deal with Time Warner, a fantastic company, but will the synergies actually develop. He thinks they flatline here.

Sell a $40 Sept 2018 Put for $5.25 and Buy a $40 Sept 2018 Call. He doesn’t have a strong opinion on whether the Time Warner deal goes through or not. It is a political issue that they will have to deal with, and it is going to be a competition issue. Trying to predict the direction the US government is likely to take on anything, is like trying to guess Wayne Gretzky’s next move in a hockey game. If you are happy to own the stock at $35 whether or not the deal goes through, and you are comfortable with it, not a bad scenario.

The price has really come off in the last year. A lot of that is because investors are questioning what these businesses are going to look like for the next 10 years. Take the juicy dividends out of the equation, and ask yourself if you would buy this business. Their debt level is somewhere around $175 billion. They are going through a lot of acquisitions so are not going to be able to raise their dividend.

He is not involved in telecoms. Prefers some of the cyclical areas. Some of the telcos are starting to improve, relative to other sectors in the space, along with financials and energy. Expects you will start to see a lift in some names like this. Dividend yield of 5.21%. Has a decent growth rate. Not sure you will find much capital growth in this when, and if, it starts to rebound. Longer-term, probably not a name he would want to own.

Algonquin Power (AQN-T), AT&T (T-N) or Enbridge (ENF-T)? Of these 3, he would certainly go with this one. It is part of the S&P 500, which he is very bullish on as well as the US$. His model price is $38.21.

They are currently trying to acquire another small equipment maker, but a higher bidder came out. (See Top Picks.)

It just doesn’t get any respect. It has been unable to break above two times book value for so long that he can’t remember. It has nice upside potential from the numbers. What’s not nice to like. His target of $45 is a stretched max.
