Telus vs. Rogers The telcos are an amazing business in Canada, because they lack competion and keep adding new lines of business. The telcos control the internet which everyone keeps using. He owns both, but would choose Rogers, because they get a whole bunch of assets, like the Blue Jays, outside the internet. Rogers also has a smart CEO who is improving the balance sheet.

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.

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.

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 few years ago, he was looking at BCE, which was right up against its FMV and not going anywhere, then sold off. Now, Telus is doing the same thing: the stock is bumbling along with stock forecasts heading nowhere. Telus is tired and will fall 20%, he thinks.

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.

Telecoms are pretty vulnerable here. Pricey relative to its group. They surprised to the upside on guidance on Q4. They have a network advantage. He is modeling 17% earnings growth, 7% dividend growth and a payout ratio that support that dividend. 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.
