Attractive 5.4% dividend especially in relationship to the 10-year 1.9% Canada bond. A huge spread. Likely that the stock will rise and the yield will decrease. (Analysts’ price target is $58.94)

It is a good solid dividend payer but he is challenged by the growth prospects. He is not in that sector. The dividend is safe. It is being challenged by NetFlix. The new generation are streamers and don't watch TV.

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.

Don’t worry that it is not participating. It will be impacted by rates and a rush to safety. If it was bought recently it has declined a little bit. It is a little over extended. It will probably stick in the current range. BCE-T will be impacted by rates. $51 - $67 will be the range it is stuck in.

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.

Can telcos get impacted by the lack of rising interest rates? To offset this lack of rising rates, you need a company with earnings growth. AQN fulfills this, for example, but not BCE. You can hold it for the 5% yield though.

Sold off and has moved counter-market in the last little while. Has always liked the stock, a good solid stock to have in your portfolio. Very competent management, safe dividend, a sector that will grow with the country. Holds it as a cash flow generator. Adds to it when it's down in the cycle, or takes profits when it gets too big in the portfolio. A core holding.

Buy during rising rates? Good company with a 75% payout ratio. Dividend growth to come. Rising rates won't upset that--he sees 5% dividend and share growth in the coming year. Valuation is in the middle at 15x. Not a huge grower now or a screaming buy. But in a few years, BCE will benefit from 5G when it hits Canada.

Is it a stock to sit and wait? Telecoms, utilities and consumer discretionaries are usually a good place to park cash when the markets get nervous. In early/mid-2017 he sold his interest rate-sensitives, because interest rates were marching higher. You must be careful with such stocks, because they don't deal well with inflation and rising rates. Doesn't know if BCE's dividend is safe or not.

Telecoms are high-dividend payers. Great income, but this has been falling, trending below its 200-day moving average. Great cash flow. There's more room for wireless penetration in Canada than the US. But rising interest rates will pressure telecom stocks. Better to wait until rates settle in 12-18 months. Better to look for dividend growers than high-dividend payers.

Over 10 years, this will be fine. Less than that, you will be unimpressed by the share price, though you'll be collecting a decent 5% dividend. BCE gives you stability, not price appreciation. Over the long term, expect an overall 7-8%
yearly return and there's nothing wrong with that. A low-beta stock long-term.

Always been a fan, especially for clients who require cash flow. Because of its dividend, it’s considered interest sensitive and it gets sold off. Broad representation of the telecom industry. Management is on the ball. Safety factor is that they’re Canada-wide. Loves the dividend, you’re not looking for a big capital gain. Dividend increase in next year or so is quite likely. (Analysts’ price target is $59.52.)

All of the interest sensitives have been beaten up to some degree.  People forget that this is an equity.  With rising interest rates you are seeing it selling off.  They have more wire-line business that the market does not think is the way of the future.  They are doing great things but you have to remember that they are an equity.  There will continue to be downward pressure to interest sensitives.

However, they can now do so with better, more efficient technology than their peers. The shares do have the highest dividend yield of any of its peers and this why they hold it. He thinks he would add to positions if it were to drop into the mid-$40 range. Yield 5.7%.

If you are looking at them at this point in the cycle it can be painful.  The fixed income proxies and bond proxies are selling off.  If you look at the multiple you will find it is still pretty reasonable.  This is different from a newspaper.  This is an absolute necessity.

A long-term holding for him.. It has increased its dividends a lot over history, though the recent share price is lagging its peers. Dividend increases are going down. A few acquisitions like Manitbo Tel, could wring out some synergies, but there are no new purchaes to support future dividend growth.

BCE vs. ATT. Stock performance has been similar over last year. Comes down to the wireless space. For ATT, it’s the only thing they do, whereas with BCE it’s only one thing they do. In Canada, there’s more runway for wireless growth. He’d go with BCE, good dividend and cash flow. It’s a little early to own high dividend names, but once interest rates start falling, these names will look interesting.

Defensive play, so doesn’t suffer same seasonal fluctuations. Can be a good place to hide in the summer. Best time to own is December 6 to March 13, even though that’s risk-on for the market. Pullback starting to base. Support at $53 would be a good risk-reward point, and also provides a tight stop. Moving averages are rolling over. Seeing lower highs and lower lows.

Today’s paradigm is that growth is good and value is bad. Big dividend payers like BCE are out of favour and telecoms are down significantly globally. However, telecom companies tend to grow with the economy. If Canadian GDP grows 10%, the telecom market will grow 10% along with it. BCE provides a fairly safe income stream and at its current level, he would add more.

This is a transitional move that will get market share from the cable companies. Good balance sheet, great management. Trades at lower end of EV to EBITDA. Has underperformed other Telco’s for last 6 months. Best growth profile and best dividend profile.

He owns this and recommends it as a holding you can feel comfortable with over the long term.  It has a low beta with the market, which makes it less volatile during downturns.  The stock has appreciated like a small, riskier growth stock.  He likes the dividend and expects 2-3% share appreciation annually.  Yield 5%.  (Analysts’ price target is $59)

Nice beautiful dividend. Continue to find ways to grow it. Payout ratio 85% is a little stretched. EPS growth is limited. Trading at 15 times. You would have better growth in other Telco’s. He wouldn’t put fresh money into it now.

If you want to replace it, he would look at ZWU-T because it gives you all the Telco's.  It gives you a couple in the US as well as pipelines and utilities.  He is not looking for a lot more downside.  It pays north of 6%.

They will be benefiting for decades to come so it is a good time to buy Telcos in Canada in general.  T-T is a pure play and BCE-T isn't a pure play but he owns both.  BCE-T have the best assets in Canada.  He shied away from Rogers (RCI.B-T).  There is churn and customer service that has to be improved.  When it is beaten up it is probably not a bad time to buy it but he prefers the other two companies.

There is going to be some growth in book value and therefore shareholder value growth this year.  After it pays out the dividend, there is not much left over.  It is getting close to 2.5 times book value ($50.51) which is a bottom for it.  It will be at an attractive technical position and he would buy it there.  The dividend is pretty safe.

He normally doesn't pick telcos as top picks, but this one offers increasing cash flow for the next few years. It's the dominant player in this space and will do well. One headwind could be upcoming CRTC spectrum hearings which could present a buying opportunity for new buyers. 5.4% yield. (Analyst's price target is $60.71.)

‘On Balance Volume’ is looking at the buys and the sells.  When buys are hitting the bid it is positive.  Otherwise it means people are selling into the market.  It has broken below its channel here.  Yield plays are out of season here.  It has done okay but struggled.  Wait for it to get back into its trading channel.

The dividend is safe and will grow over the next number of years.  It is a great overall package.  The group is growing more slowly than before and the valuations are high, but you should be absolutely fine with it here.

They have done a good job rolling their fiber program. The Canadian side is like an oligopoly vs the US side with a lot of competition. Hesitant to go into this sector. Big part of the business sis shifting away. Attractive for the yield for dividend investors.

Should I add to my position? It trades at a fair price, but comes with a fair amount of debt. They had a good wireless quarter.  What could shake things up is if true wireless competition will become real. Yield  5.4%.

Good earnings with many new subscribers, but have a high payout ratio. Increased their dividend by 5%. There will be spectrum auctions and outflows from the company. So, when do you stop the dividend and pay for things that the company needs? Defensive stock. Good subscriber growth. Own it for the income.

TOP PICK
BCE Inc.(BCE-T) 

February 7, 2018

BCE will come out with earnings tomorrow and is well positioned for growth and sustainability of dividends. They are half way through their goal of 8 million homes to receive fibre optic lines. BCE has free cash flow available and he thinks this leaves potential for dividend growth, unlike Telus (T-T) and Rogers Corp (ROG-T). Yield 5%. (Analysts’ price target is $61.78)

BUY
BCE Inc.(BCE-T) 

February 7, 2018

If you're an income-oriented investor, it's a good time to enter this name. Don't expect much earnings growth. Alarmforce was a good acqusition. Dividend will likely rise. Rising interest rates in Canada won't mirror those in the U.S. and expects only one or no hikes here, so will lessen impact on BCE. Reasonable valuation.
