Wireless and wire line services. Will probably correct relatively less in any pullback so this would be a safe and defensive name. 6.2% yield.

6.25% dividend yield. Hasn't done particularly well in participating in the recent rally. A solid play in a market where there is uncertainty.

One of the largest telephone companies in the US. Traditional landline business is still declining. Wireless business is doing well. Have been cutting costs. Dividend appears to be safe. If income oriented, you can look at this as a long-term holding.

A fine company but he prefers Verizon (VZ-N). The wire lines business is more stable than wireless.

Transition from landlines to cell phones will be the driving force going forward. Pretty well positioned going forward.

6.38% dividend. Stock has been really beaten up and is down 40%. Blue-chip stock (fair amount of debt) on a distressed sale. Some people are cancelling landlines or not getting as much cell phone or add-ons as they used to but it is still a major company.

Better positioning in the enterprise business compared to Verizon (VZ-N). Line losses are also less. 6.3% dividend is quite stable.

Major carriers in the US are going through a tremendous change. Voice business is basically going away. The key is, can they make a transition bringing the TV and Internet into homes. It will be very expensive and will take a while. Have managed to stabilize cash flows. As long as they don't get into price wars, the stock is stable.

Wireless sector. Has a contract with Apple (AAPL-Q), which has turned out to be a little disappointing as clients have been able to unlock the phone and not sign with AT&T. Likes Verizon (VZ-N) better, which has a better strategy in terms of being able to deliver other products to the consumer. Both Verizon and AT&T are very strong.

This is 2 businesses, local phone company and wireless. Local phone is a terrible business but wireless is fantastic. Rather than owning a good and bad business, he prefers Sprint (S-N), which is all good.

Nice dividend yield. There is room for the stock to go higher. Getting some price increases in their enterprise business. Starting to push out a TV service that is having some traction. Looking for a dividend increase this year.

Really likes some of the US telephone service providers. There is a rebuilding going on at the network level that will allow the telecom service providers to charge more for the services and sell different types of services. There is also new content being pushed through the pipes.

One of the worst performers in the last 5 years but is now showing some pretty good performance. Has gone through major restructuring. Cut a lot of costs and reduced capital expenditures. Through consolidation, he is seeing some pricing power. 4% yield. Low economic sensitivity.

This is one of his long time favourites. He owns it, his clients own it and he is buying it for new accounts. It is the cheapest of the 5 banks. It is a safe place to be in a slow down. Evaluations are fair.

The wire line phone companies in general have not performed very well over the last 2/3 years, but they are not terribly economically sensitive, they’re cash flow generating machines and the environment is starting to improve for them. They are also getting price increases on their wholesale business.

Has a lot of issues to deal with, but does have a good yield. A big issue with telecoms is the large amount they have to spend to move in the direction of Voice Over IP. Telecoms have a lot of competition, from cable, etc. Generates a lot of cash, but they are not growing. Basically they are a utility. If they can maintain market share they'll be fine.
