He is less concerned with conditions out west and more with cyclical conditions. People are unhooking from cable. They have good cash flow, buying back shares and raising dividends. There is no growth here, however.

This is a stock that normally does very well in the summer. That is good, because there aren’t many stocks that do well in the summer. The stock has been in a range in the last little while. As it moves above its current trading range, then you have upside potential.

Telus (T-T) Bell (BCE-T) or Rogers (RCI.B-T)? He owns BCE which he likes. Telus has always been a very well-run company. They are going to take apart of some of the wireless business from Manitoba Tel (MBT-T). The issue is that Alberta is very slow, and this may be a good opportunity to buy it here.

They have decent earnings growth and dividend growth. It is trading slightly below its 5 years average. They have some upcoming Shaw competition from a launch they will do. Because they have an Alberta base there is a bit of a headwind. Despite all this he thinks you could buy it.

Like a lot of utilities, pipelines and telecoms, there is not a lot of growth. All of them have done a really good job of squeezing out whatever growth there is, and now there is a little bit of fight on the phone side and cable TV. This has the most Alberta exposure, which is why it has been weak. Longer-term, this one is the best bet.

Telcos have been good at competing cooperatively, a very cozy place to be. Looks at these as free cash flow machines and how much cash they generate. Today they have some challenges. Some parts of the business have structural issues, and they have been very good at managing that. Over time, there are things that have to be monitored, in terms of competitive intensity in things like wireless. Right now it is pretty even, but we are going to have to see what happens with Shaw and Wind Mobile which can tend to be disruptive. Well-run and the dividend is safe. Wouldn’t count on much more than the 4.4% dividend at this point.

If you are a dividend investor, this is a place to put money. This is a telco that will probably do well as oil turns around because of their Western exposure. Canadian telcos have been the beneficiary of lower oil pricing, in the sense that people wanted money out of the energy space and went into telcos. Valuations in Canadian telcos now are about a multiple turn more than in the US. If the Canadian economy improves, you might want to take some chips off the table at that time.

A particularly well managed company. They are continually eating away on the heels of their competitors. He has a problem with their multiple. On the positive side they have a higher dividend. In terms of valuation he finds it hard to justify most of the telecom stocks. He owns just a little of BCE as a lot term for some of his clients.

Trading at a reasonable valuation. Has a little bit more Alberta orientation, but likes the 4.3% yield. This is his favourite in the Canadian telecom space.

It dipped down when Wind was acquired by Shaw. Also, T-T has a larger exposure to Alberta. She does not own telecom right now. She goes other places for yield. T-T has announced they plan to increase their dividend 10% per year going forward.

Lightened up, mainly because of the focus in Alberta. They have done a lot of good business in Alberta, but the stats coming out of that province are not looking good. Until we get the oil situation straightened out it is going to be a tough market area to do well in. Prefers BCE (BCE-T).

For his more conservative clients seeking income, he prefers Bell Canada (BCE-T), but for those looking for more growth, Telus offers the best growth. Everybody has to own at least one telco, and maybe 2. Every time the CRTC does something, somehow the majors managed to make more money than they did before. It is like magic.

A lot of their business is coming from Western Canada, so the stock has fallen off quite a bit. He would probably look at this again at some point, but technically it is still below the 200 day moving average. He would stay away until there are more signs of strength. Needs to get above the $41-$42 level before he would dip into it. (See Top Picks.)

He likes the name. All the Telcos in Canada are a buy. Foreigners are not going to come into the space. It sold off because of what happened in Alberta. Smart phone adoption in Canada is a lot less than in the US. Great dividend.

(His top picks are dividend growers.) When a company raises its dividend, it is signalling to investors that it thinks the year ahead is going to be good. This one has been a wonderful dividend grower with many, many years of dividend growth. 2 dividend increases last year added up to about 10%. The stock has been hurt by the sentiment of its exposure to the energy intensive provinces. Dividend yield of 4.56%.

The cheapest of the big 3. It recently set back to excellent support at about 2.5X Book. For this stock, that is quite cheap. Has nice upside potential and a 4.7% dividend yield.

An incredibly well run company that have done a terrific job over the last decade. A big part of their problem now is the oil sector and Shaw. Shaw will be quite aggressive against Telus (T-T). He thinks you can do better elsewhere, e.g. with Rogers (RCI.B-T).

Has fallen off a little in the last couple of months due to its exposure in the West as well as the Shaw (SJR.B-T) Wind Mobile deal. Likes their dividend yield of 4.7%, and that they are determined to grow that dividend yield by 8%-9% per year over the next few years. The stock has come down to the 15X forward earnings level with a 10% growth rate, which is not too bad.

Doesn’t own any names in the telco space. She got out a few years ago because of regulatory and competition concerns. That has lifted a bit, but this company took another drop when Shaw (SJR.B-T) announced they were buying Wind Mobile a few weeks ago. She is not inclined to re-enter the sector right now. Shaw will be a stronger competitor, and Telus has much more exposure to Western Canada, where there could be much weaker wireless growth.
