There's wireless competition coming. They executed well in Q4, beating on subscriber growth and showed reduced churn. He sees 3% revenue growth and 7% dividend growth with a 75% payout ratio. It's a defensive, quality long-term owner. It's a yield proxy. If you own, you're okay, but don't buy a first position.

He's long owned this. A good 7% dividend grower. The whole space is challenged by revenue growth by the wireless side. Telus has actually been expanding the data side. He likes it.

He likes is the telco in general in Canada. A year ago when interest rates were expected to go higher, they didn't look that attractive. He owns Rogers for some of their media assets. But still likes this one. Projecting a dividend increase.

The bad is that last quarter they had lower margins. and there is more competition. But they are executing well. Growth of 8 to 10% 2018 to 2020. 80% payout ratio. All in this is a good name. It won;t lead our portfolio higher but it is a good name without a lot of downside risk. (Analysts’ price target is $51.73)

He briefly owned this. He's heard that Telus has spent a lot of money building their fibre-optics network and could increase their free cash flow. Its growth rate isn't high enough for him, but it is the strongest telco in this sector. A good stock.

BCE vs Telus BCE's growth potential is a little limited vs. Telus. Telus' dividend is okay, but a little lower than BCE's. BCE was one of the few stocks rising when the rest of the market fell. Not a bad idea to also buy Telus. Both are good for cash flow through their dividends. That's why he bought BCE. Telus has a little more growth.

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. Attractive yield. Nothing wrong with this company as part of an income bucket.

Loves the pure play wireless positioning that Telus has. The more we do on our smartphones, the more we drive data usage and that translates into higher bill and more dollars and average revenue per user going up. Been spending a lot of money with expanding the 4G network and the technology. Feels that some of that capex is softening which is good has dividend growth investors, should see some cash come back to boost the dividend. Like the positioning and the valuation. Yield 4.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $50.77)

A pure play wireless name. We're doing more and more on our smartphones, which means data charges are rising. He sees continued growth. He's long held Telus. Telus is at the end of a capex cycle, spending money on 4G networks. So, there'll be money leftover to pay back shareholders through dividend growth.

T-T vs. RCI.B-T vs. BCE-T.  Nobody knows which one will do better.  The best way to play it in the utility space is ZWU-T, which gives exposure to Telco's, pipelines and utilities.  These things are interest rate sensitive so you will not get much capital gains and you have to be cautious.

Telus is the strongest of the Canadian telcos with great numbers. It looks good going forward. Their cash flow will help them weather rising interest rates.

A name that had some capex issues in the last couple of years, but they had seen the inflection here.

Likely to post solid future growth longer-term. Currently, we have spiking bond yields, which impacts telco valuations. This one is at a level that is not cheap, trading at 17.5X 2018. However on Q3 they guided to lower CapX for the 1st time since 2010. That's a suggestion they have built most of their footprint. Also, they beat on new subscribers both wireless and wireline. He models them growing EPS at 15% for 2017-2019. With this pullback, because of the climb in bond yields, you can write a Put and oblige yourself to own it at $45, and get a nice little premium.

Telus (T-T) or Bell Canada (BCE-T)? He owns both. They are very similar, especially in the Canadian marketplace given how small the market is. You can own both. It's the idea of having some diversification in the portfolio. Both pay a great dividend and have a history of raising the dividend. The dividend on this is about 4.2%. If yield is important, and you are retired, you are likely to lean more towards BCE because of the greater yield. He likes the focus this has on the wireless side.

Bell Canada (BCE-T) or Telus (T-T)? He owns all 3 Canadian telcos, because people are addicted to their cell phones, which is why he loves cell phone companies. There has been a little rotation out of interest sensitive companies, but he sees many, many years of earnings growth. Prefers Rogers (RCI.B-T) out of the 3, as he thinks they have better assets and faster growth.

Has a great yield of 4.3% and trades at about 17X earnings. With Alberta having such difficulty with oil, the stock kind of collapsed. Prior to that it was doing incredibly well. They also had very good growth on their mobile side. They are doing a massive CapX expenditure like BCE in order to do fibre to the home. BCE was doing it in massively dense populations so it wasn't as costly. Telus is working in Alberta, and the costs are for more expensive. Looking at their balance sheet, their CapX is going up substantially, but the free cash flow has fallen a lot. They have to get through this, where the CapX starts to go down again and free cash flow grows. He would stay with this.

Not cheap, trading at around 18X 2018. Has a pretty high payout ratio around 86%, but sees that coming down. On Q3 their CAP X guidance was lower for the 1st time since 2010. They've laid most of their fibre and have done their footprint, so costs will be coming down. At the same time, there is a lot of strength in wireless and wireline. He models 15% per share growth 2016-2018. In 2020 this trades at a 15X reasonable multiple. He would buy at $46.

Having doubled my money, do I buy more or diversify into something else? A theme that has worked in this market for a long time is dividend growth. This company has been a poster child for years and years. He is not a huge fan of the telcos, because it falls into the camp of the bond proxy like sectors. Within the sector, this has a very high exposure to wireless, and technically the stock looks very, very good. It has just broken old of a 2-year base, and consolidated the breakout, so next year looks quite good.

This has been extremely well-managed. Relative to Bell (BCE-T) it has made great strides positioning itself, not only within the wireless market, but also profitability wise. Has a good dividend history. With a long-term view, this is a good stock to own.

This has basically been threading the needle between 2 of his technical break points, and has been doing it for a long time. The bottom side is at about $40 and the top side is at about $54. It has a nice yield, so he would continue holding it. If it sets back to $40, that would be a Buy.

November 3, 2017

Has underperformed its peers for the last 2 years. Trading at a bit of a PE discount because they have had rising Cap X, lower cash flow, concern about their dividend payout ratios. They've really been building out their fibre, but believes that is going to reach important milestones in 2018-2019 and CapX is going to start coming down. By mid-2018 they will have completed 50% of their targeted footprint. By the end of 2018 it will be 60%. This should lead to rising free cash flow and multiple expansion. Dividend yield of 4.2%. (Analysts’ Price Target is $48.50.)

He likes this company. On any of the Canadian telcos, you are not going to go wrong owning them. This company's concentration in wireless is quite high, among the highest in Canadian telcos. An area where he sees growth going forward, based on that we are all doing more with our smart phones. The average revenue per user is rising. Valuation is reasonable, trading at 17X. Make sure you are not too heavy in this space. Dividend yield of 4.2%.

He likes this very much. This and Bell Canada (BCE-T) would be his top 2 choices in the telecom sector. If you want to stick a stock away for the next 10 years, his choice would be Telus. He takes his hat off for their buildout of the fibre to the home over a five-year timeframe, versus BCE which is over a ten-year timeframe. Currently they have guidance for a 7%-10% annual increase in dividends. When the buildout is finished in 2020-2021, he thinks they’ll be able to renew that 10% a year dividend growth rate.

They are among the most concentrated in wireless, an area he continues to believe will grow. There is a lot of capital going into making sure we do more and more on smart phones in the future. They’ve done a great job investing and expanding their 4G networks by about $2.2 billion. Recently rolled out Telus TV, a good way to cross sell another service to existing clients. Dividend yield of 4.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $48.50.)

In the meantime it has a decent yield. The kind of thing you can tuck away in your portfolio and not worry about it.

This is based out of Western Canada, so they haven’t been strong just because of the economic picture. He likes the telecoms and thinks this is a good company. Right now he would prefer BCE (BCE-T) or Rogers (RCI.B-T). If looking for growth on capital, there are probably better places to deploy your money over the short term. However, if you just want to park it and forget it, you are probably fine with this.

Sell? He owns this and likes it, but less than he did a couple of years ago. Because they are essentially only in the wireless space, they are going to need to invest significantly in acquiring spectrum and upgrading networks. It’s a CapX heavy business, and there is not a whole lot of growth in it. A safe name to have in your portfolio, but if looking for some real growth over 3-5 years, you need to go to something like Alphabet (GOOGL-Q) or Amazon (AMZN-Q).

A Western Canadian-based telecom provider. Many years ago they made the wise decision not to get into content. They’ve had a very successful record over the years of paying a dividend and growing it. Over the next couple of years, they will have to pay for some spectrum. Debt has increased on their balance sheet, so they really should slow down their dividend growth rate. They will face more competition with Shaw, after Shaw having acquired Wind Mobile.

A good name longer-term, but there are competitive pressures with Shaw right now. Thinks their dividend is going to be over 100% of their free cash flow this year due to their heavy CapX. Trading below its five-year average, and lower than the group. Telecoms are pretty expensive here. They have been acting as a bit of a yield proxy. Excellent management team. If he had great capital gains, he would be selling some of this.
