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.

(Top Pick Jan 26/16, Up 21.60%) He still likes it, but it is having a hard time getting anywhere. He would not buy it here anymore.

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.

T-T Vs. BCE-T. It is West vs. East. He had to decide when to move toward growth. That means getting rid of some of the "steady Eddies". He owns none of the telecoms right now. Multiples are extremely high. T-T ranks number 1 with customer service and the ability to generate cash flow. Both are great dividend growth companies.

It’s a high wire act, and right at the top of its peak. He needs to see it get above that. If he didn’t have any money in the stock, he would be waiting for it to cross that line. If it got down to around the $34 level, he would probably get into it. Until it proves otherwise, he would be a seller here.

This seems to have a lid somewhere in the $45 area. It is really not a trending stock, it has gone up and down like a yo-yo. Currently it is kind of closing in at around the top of the range, and could get near the top of the range or just decline back down to the high $30s. He probably wouldn’t be a buyer at this time, unless you are just interested in the dividends.

A great company, but is in a sector that has a lot of difficulties passing through fee increases, and he wonders if it can grow out of it. He owns nothing in the telecom area.

(A Top Pick Jan 28/16. Up 14.7%.) Had felt the selloff last year was too dramatic. People had worried about what was going to happen in the Western economy. You are going to get an 8%-10% dividend yield over the next few years. Still reasonably valued.

If you own this for the dividend, it is just fine, as they will continue to grow the dividend. The CapX continues to go down, so they will be able to maintain it. If you own for capital appreciation, you are facing some challenges because of increasing interest rates, and potentially more aggressive competition from Shaw (SJR.B-T). A well-managed company.

5-10 year hold? This is a little bit richer than what he would like it to be. The over all long-term hypothesis is fine, so you could own this pretty much through any cycle. Dividend yield of 4.6%.

(Market Call Minute.) Along with the other telcos, this has been hit recently with the upturn in interest rates. He still likes the company. 9% dividend increase this year. Looks pretty solid for the long-term, but wait to see how this negative trade on interest rates plays out.

It is probably time to sell as all the telcos are pretty expensive. The Cap-X requirements leave them with little or no free cash flow. Telcos are not going to outperform. Interest rates will be a headwind while the tail wind from the last 7 years has gone.
