COMMENT
BCE Inc.

It has raised its dividend again with dividend growth being 3 to 5%. annually. Although growth has slowed for Canadian Telcos, BCE is one of the biggest providers of cell phones.

BCE Inc.

Significant capital expenditures. Announced a further 3-year plan, and that will stress the EPS and cashflow numbers. Once the build is complete, capex should decline and earnings should grow. Dividend increases should, perhaps, be slowed. In 3-4 years, the payout ratio should normalize. In the meantime, it's vulnerable to something going wrong, payout ratio and credit rating getting stressed, dividend getting cut. He doesn't see that happening, growth is predictable and not as subject to inflationary pressures. Still expensive at these levels, try for mid-low $50s.

(A Top Pick Nov 30/22, Up 0.1%)

High quality, as blue chip as you can get. Stable, recurring revenues. Nothing fundamental to change the thesis. Share price dropped against the macro backdrop. Yield is 6%.

TOP PICK
BCE Inc.
Likes their fat dividend and strong subscriber growth--their cell phone growth is driven by immigration. Fibre-to-home build-out is reaching inflection, around 80% by 2025. Capex will slow in coming years. Not cheap at 17x 2023, but boasts a 6% growth rate. Safe and pays well. (Analysts’ price target is $66.42)

TOP PICK
BCE Inc.
It is in a very strong competitive position along with Telus and has excellent assets. He prefers both BCE and Telus over Rogers with its internal issues and Shaw takeover proposal, and BCE over Telus. BCE is is a long term stable company in a non-stable environment. It is extremely well priced with a dividend of 5.8%. There are regular dividend increases. Buy 6 Hold 11 Sell 0 (Analysts’ price target is $66.42)

Metrics to determine if dividend is safe? Telcos have high capex expenses for fibre optic cable, and those are planned for. BCE has a reasonable payout ratio in relation to earnings, so margin of safety built in. Pretty good yield. Good long-term hold.

BUY
BCE Inc.
BCE vs. RCI.B vs. T 3 great companies. Lots of drama with RCI.B, valuation is the most attractive, you have to buy it. BCE is doing great things, becoming more of a utility over time, sets up well. Telus doing everything right, but high valuation, best executor, but not as much upside. All are buys, in order: RCI.B, BCE, then Telus.

BCE Inc.
He added shares over the summer. He wants dividend payers like this. Some argue this is a consumer discretionary stock, but BCE is well diversified. The dividend is safe.

BUY
BCE Inc.
Telcos are right up there in his dividend strategy. He's been picking away at this one. Don't buy it if you think interest rates will continue higher, but he thinks we're getting to peak hawkishness. Attractive time to buy, as you might get the tailwind of falling rates next few quarters. 5G capex rollout mostly complete.

TOP PICK
BCE Inc.
Likes the near-6% yield, which is safe and it keeps increasing. They're benefiting from more international travel, given roaming cell revenues. Also, immigration is ramping up in years to come; immigrants will buy cell phones and internet access. BCE is building out its fibre network, targeting 80% of their footprint covered by 2025. Capital spending has ramped up. Once they cover that, they will generate a lot of free cash flow. (Analysts’ price target is $68.46)

BUY
BCE Inc.
Steady eddy with a beautiful dividend, and his favourite at this time. A good stock to own in this environment. Of the big 3, most evolved in fibre to the home, and they did it when rates were low. Maintenance capex will be pretty light. Could be multiple valuation upgrade.

TOP PICK
BCE Inc.
We're in a tough environment. He wants big dividends and a stable business. Win by playing defense. 52-week low today. Wireless is performing well, record low churn, roaming is back, fibre journey is more than 50% complete. On cusp of becoming an infrastructure-light, cashflow generator. Yield is 6%. (Analysts’ price target is $68.46)
