Good dividend yield. Canadian investors moving into the US is a good idea. Telecom is a very competitive business and very capital-intensive. Don't expect a lot of growth.

Because of the small amount of competition, it will make lots and lots of money. Not a bad place for yield right now but for Canadian investors, you don't get the dividend tax credit.

Has a messy uptrend, but an uptrend nonetheless. In a sector that has been in favour. Bottom is in place and in the sector that is in favour right now.

Telcos, globally, will continue to do well. This company has a very attractive catalyst if the T Mobile merger gets consummated. It will raise profitability significantly over a 2-3 year time frame. 6.2% dividend.

This is a good holding but at this point, Verizon (VZ-N) might be better value. Feels you get a good yield with Verizon plus a little more growth.

There are better global telcos than this one. For a conservative investor looking for a reasonable yield pickup, it has been a very good strong story. Growth and yield of 5.6% is not as good as others such as Windstream (WIN-Q) or CenturyLink (CTL-N) with over 7% yields.

Will deal going on with AT&T have any affect on Canadian? Our telecom companies would be more attractive but regulatory limitations prevent they being taken out by a foreign company.

Getting some competition and expects Verizon (VZ-N) will take some market share. Expect there will be some leveling off of earnings in 2011 and then re-accelerate at a modest pace in 2012. Trades at about 12X earnings and has a fabulous dividend of over 6%. Not a bad place to be.

Problem is that they have 2 forces 1) wire-line which is struggling and 2) wireless side is doing well. This makes it a relatively slow grower but a great cash machine. Good dividend.

Old telecom companies are having a great go of it. Fixed wire line has become less important and all of them have gone through restructuring for wireless. Average revenue per customer is rising because of the success of smart phones. Great dividend yield.

Verizon (VZ-N) and AT&T (T-N) are major telecoms. Yield in excess of 6%, which is attractive in an environment where a 10-year bond is 2.75%. Could be a trap where you go for yield but capital depreciates. Doesn't think this is the case. Great cash flow, which they pay in dividends but also build out networks. Drag is their wire line business.

Telephones. Wire line is struggling a little bit and wireless is their future. In bed with Apple (AAPL-Q), which is hurting their margins but longer-term this is a good solid holding. 6.2% yield. Verizon (VZ-N) would be an interesting option in this space.
