BCE Inc.

Return on equity not strong. Does not own shares. Payout of dividend is high, but wouldn't expect capital gains. Recent weakness in business a concern. Canadian oligopoly of media good for business model, but probably wouldn't survive competition. Better options for investors out there.

Long term in a non-registered account

The telco space isn't exciting and there are better sectors. BCE peaked around $75 in January 2022 and has been a waterfall down since. He'd be concerned if this broke below $49-50; holding it for the dividend is not enough.

BCE Inc.

Hit fairly hard over last year. Since Rogers-Shaw deal, lots of pressure in the industry to reduce costs. Hit profitability for all, layoffs ensued, trying to right-size cost structure. His issue is growth. Reasonable valuation. High dividend that's covered by free cashflow, safe. Not a lot of downside, but better opportunities.

BCE vs. Enbridge

Prefers utilities though both pay a 7% dividend. ENB has more certain growth, than the telcos which also face regulatory pressure.

TD vs. BCE for capital appreciation, plus attractive and sustainable dividend?

BCE beat, raised dividend, but free cashflow problems and layoffs. Dividend is really good. Will probably go to $48 before all is said and done. When there's bad news, stocks take a while to fully bleed out. Doesn't mean there isn't good value here from a dividend point of view.

For TD, banks are a tougher story due to capital ratios and inability to grow. Best balance sheet, due to failed takeover bid in US. Between the two, he'd pick this one right now. But instead of a bank, look to MFC or SLF.

PAST TOP PICK
BCE Inc.
(A Top Pick Dec 20/22, Down 9%)

He's not selling on recent news, even though it will probably tick lower. Still a great company. Rogers deal brought competition, regulatory overhang. Stock will still work for next 10-20 years.

PAST TOP PICK
BCE Inc.
(A Top Pick Apr 19/23, Down 13%)

Nothing wrong with BCE, but a victim of rapidly rising bond yield. BCE shares have regained some of its losses in this period. Telus has traded the same way, though he prefers it. BCE continues to pay a juicy yield that will continue to grow.

BUY
BCE Inc.

It pays a good dividend of 7% and she is looking for a multiple year return of 5 to 7%. BCE has spent a lot on building fiber networks and supplying it to homes. That expense should be tailing off soon. The stock is off with a small rebound and is interest rate sensitive.  She has a 20 year plan for owning stocks.

WEAK BUY
BCE Inc.

Solid, but its big growth lies behind it. Everybody now has cell phones. The stock is undervalued buy going forward this won't be a big grower. A safe place to invest money and bide your time.

BUY
BCE Inc.

Has owned this 17 years. Now is a great time to buy it as it pays a safe 7% dividend. There were concerns about the dividend, but shares are creeping up as that concern fades. Great margins and cash flow.

BUY
BCE Inc.

Owns shares and likes ~7% dividend yield. Falling interest rates will be good for the business. Wireless industry basically an oligopoly. Immigration into Canada will be good for business. Demand for interest also rising. Expecting to see further growth.

BUY ON WEAKNESS
BCE Inc.

~5% yield is safe. Good for defensive investors. Rising population good for business. Recent share price weakness a good place to buy. Would hold if already own shares. Good infrastructure in company.

PARTIAL BUY

BCE vs. Telus.

Close in valuations. Owns and likes both, but Telus a little better at these levels, as it has not as much capex ahead plus diversified businesses. BCE has more debt. Looking to increase weight of Telus. Both seem to be bottoming. Regulatory looks tougher going ahead. Be wary of any slowing in immigration, especially with any change in government. 

Not the total return stories of the past 5-6 years, but good solid dividend yield. Start picking away at half positions.

BUY
BCE Inc.

He doesn't see much downside and the 7% dividend yield makes it attractive. A former top pick of his. Last year, telcos faced pressure, but this year will be better. People won't give up their cell phones and 5G internet to their homes.  Now is a pretty good entry point.
