Telecoms? Rogers is an interesting name. He owns BCE instead. A push for lower cell phone rates along with greater investment in 5G networks are key headwinds in this sector. Telcoms will face a lot spending to build up 5G, which will impact the financials for the next few years. He likes the dividend they pay, however. If your time horizon is long, then holding is fine.

Had a large uptick in the first half of 2019, then fell, then jumped up again in October 2019, but since then has done nothing. May to September is seasonality. Chart shows the same, consistent pattern in past years. Hold off on telcos until seasonality. Pays a 4.6% dividend.

He likes it on a longer term basis because of their diversification. They have been quietly investing in these businesses and not getting a lot of credit. Their spending on fiber to the home is much more advanced than BCE-T's is. They don't own a content business.

Great company for the long term. If you are looking for more upside there are different places to look. Vodafone just announced they are going to spin out tower and the stock jumped almost 10% today. Would recommend AT&T if you are looking for more yield. Generally the dividend yields on Canadian telcos is quite low relative to other parts of the world.

Telcos are pretty defensive, so he wouldn't be too concerned in a recession. But, do you put new money in right now? It's not cheap, but a great dividend that's expected to grow. If you own it, he wouldn't add more, but you can sell calls on it for a nice second stream of income.

This has been a dividend play for years. They did a really great job of growing it over time. The defensive sectors are very expensive. Telecoms have that group risk built into them. But he prefers to focus on stocks that have a higher divined growth rate. The total return over the next few years should be pretty decent.

Given the lower rates offered to consumers by Canadian telcos. Investors think the rate cuts (unlimited rates for broadband) it'll cut into their profitablility, but this model has existed in the US for a long time and the American carriers are still very successful. The Canadian telcos needed to correct its offerings to consumers in this way. He prefers Rogers, whose stock has performed a little better. Bell is spending more in laying fibre, while Rogers is spending on 5G.

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 regrets not buying this years ago. Very well-managed and has done well in wireless. Today's prices anticipate growth, but the wireless market in Canada is saturated. Margins will remain high, because wireless in Canada is an oligopoly with little competition. Be cautious here. BCE is the dominant player in this space. He wouldn't buy it at current prices, but would likely hold.

If Canada bans Huawei would this company be hurt as they are using Huawei equipment to build the 5G network - They do have a lot of their equipment from Huawei. They would have to replace this equipment. It might cost them some money but eventually it will be passed through to the consumer. It is an incremental expense but will be manageable.
