BCE vs. Telus The dividends are as safe as it gets, bolstered by the work-from-home trend and people using more data. Telus has a home security monitoring which ties in with their connected internet of things theme, and a telehealth business which will likely grow in coming years. Both companies are good and even in quality--can't choose one. It's splitting hairs.

A risky telco? He does not own RCI in his portfolios. The dividends are secure, but he prefers BCE and T. They are all facing similar challenges. He thinks RCI has not been as good at controlling costs.

BCE and Telus Owning either is fine. It's splitting hairs to choose one over the other. Tech stocks are the big focus of investors now. The current 5% dividend yield + 5% dividend growth rate = your likely return. Be patient with them, because these stocks won't leap in a given day. Positives: both are staples, with cell phones indispensible in our lives as people work more from home and are using more data, which adds to their revenue. Also note, they are low-beta stocks, so, they don't rise or fall as much as the wider market, but are safe. They're part of a regulated oligopoly. He'd give a slight edge to Telus because of Telus Health which will become more a part of our lives as we go forward.

Telephone companies are going to benefit from the stay-at-home phenomenon. People would not give up their cell phones but they might take a lower package. BCE-T is a fairly good place to be but they will have to do a lot of CAP-X for 5 G, although it will be a benefit in the long term.

They are using Huawei to a great extent. Are they a good investment? There is now better appreciation for their stability during the pandemic. BCE-T is the steady blue chip of the sector while T-T is more of a grower. There is also a lot of insider buying of T-T over the years. He would prefer T-T. He would not be too concerned with use of Huawei. We are now moving away from globalization. There won't be enough impact to dissuade someone from investing in either of them.

Increase dividend? The telcos are in a good spot. Work from home, the thirst for data, and the need to connect will do well for them. Their latest earnings said their pension is fully funded. They are a 5G play as well. He does not know if they will increase the dividend, when the payout ratio is already 85%. At this price level, he would prefer Telus, but you could buy here.

T-T vs. BCE-T. Why do you own a telco – for income or for growth. These are about as good as it gets for income. Demand for their products is pretty resilient. There might be better opportunities for growth out there. He likes both of them.

BCE-T vs. RCI.B-T. They both have this perpetual cap-x spend in front of them and have a challenge in growth looking forward. But the telco space is not as expensive as some of the other defensive stocks. You would do well by owning any one of these. They score quite similarly. You can hold these through long periods of time.

Telcos are an oligopoly here. It pays a great dividend, but it's a mature, low-growth company. Young people are cable cutting and streaming everything instead. BCE should hold up well. Even with 5G, BCE won't grow much. You're buying this for a growing Canadian economy and being a well-run company.

He still owns a little of this. Its dilemma is that a segment of revenues comes from land lines which is a shrinking business; people are streaming more and more and cutting their cable cord. This could become a long-term shift and pressure telcos, including BCE. Careful with telcos offering really high dividends, because they may not be sustainable.

He likes it. It is a utility with a nice, consistent dividend. They dumped a lot of money into 5G. He worries on the media side. It will take a little time to come back, e.g. Sports. He recently added it. He likes safety over growth.

The stock is trading as much as it was in terms of PE as at the high. The telecom sector should benefit in the short term. They have committed to their cap X program in the short term, which is a good thing for them. A great dividend and they are committed to it. He would look to buy these companies.

Dividends safe? Regulated businesses stand a better chance to keep dividends whole. BCE and ENB are both regulated entities. Canadian banks have had a history of not cutting dividends, but you never know. It will depend on how long COVID lasts -- if we are still locked down next year, he would be a seller.

telus vs bell He owns and likes both equally. Telus has less competition out west, so they enjoy a duopoly with Shaw. Telus has grown its subscriber base well. They will spin off their international division, maybe next year, and they made an acquisition in Germany. A great capital allocator. Bell has the media side, which distinguishes it from Telus. You can buy either now.

As consumers the best thing we can do is to watch their programs and consume their media. A lot of people in work-from-home situations should be helpful to the cable companies. He does not think they have ever cut their dividend. This is a safe-haven stock.

He likes telcos. Bond proxies have become overpriced, but telcos are less overpriced compared to REITs and utilities. They're stable with decent valuations. BCE is a good place to hide now. He's also long Rogers and Cogeco. Telcos can move lower, but less so in a market sell-off. When markets recover, though, telcos won't move up as much.

Buy the stock or ETF? Yes, buy the stock. He doesn't buy ETFs. He wants to own exactly what he wants. You can own this through XIC or XIU, but you'd be buying lots of other stocks you may not want. BCE isn't a bad stock, but it's slow-growing. It has most to lose as people drop landlines. Also, the CRTC is pressuring telcos to lower cell phone bills in two years. It's defensive and low yield. Safe in an oligopoly. There are better ideas out there.
