If you believe that interest rate won't go up you can do well with this name. It has higher leverage but it was always like that. Stable business.

Sell now at $59 after buying at $50? Smart to buy during the Xmas pullback. The telcos are fairly valued now, so you can hold onto this and collect the good 5.3% yield. Internet demand won't diminish. Don't be anxious to sell it, but if you're a trader, sell.

(A Top Pick Feb 02/18, Up 11%) Good for regular cash flow and he expects a dividend increase. This sector continues to grow and BCE came raise charges. Telcos are a good space and BCE is the biggest player here.

He owns Telus. He recently bought Verizon in the US because of 5G. BCE and Telus are going to have to invest a lot in 5G technology. He does not see a lot of dividend growth going forward. These are not growth stories. You are buying them for their dividend and dividend growth.

Will the 5G conversion hurt the telcos? A challenge but also an opportunity for them. Look at how much capital they can tap, which BCE can without problem. Their stock price doesn't indicate that there's a big risk on the horizon. A great company with a fine dividend. You can buy and hold this and it will weather a recession. A big holding of his.

Blue chip. One of the premium dividend payers. One of the issues is that pricing power is not quite there. Not a growth story, but you can 100% hold it as a dividend play. Nothing to propel earnings higher in next 2-3 years, so she's not excited about it. No chatter about future acquisitions. Great company, great management team. Yield is 5.5%.

He's not a fan of the telecom sector. 5% yield, but it's only growing at 5% a year, so it will take you 14 years to double. Prefers stronger free cash flow, so dividend can be raised 10% a year. 5G will be extremely expensive, doesn't see the economic benefit.

BCE vs. BNS for dividend growth and a long-term holding He owns both. Two different companies. The view on interest rates is positive for both. BCE: telecoms won't suffer from cord cutting, since they have a stake in streaming as well; and wireless, cable and interest rates are still high in Canada. BNS: just added to his holding; been a poor performer in the past year, but their international exposure is a positive; pays a good dividend; and this is a safe stock. Canadian banks as a whole earn a lot of money, and he doesn't see problems in this sector. BCE is more defensive, but it comes down to which sector you want.

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.

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.

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.

Pressured by higher interest rates. Good for a TFSA. It's crossed its 100-day moving average, so there's momentum. Pays a good 5.5% yield. Also offers stability. (Analysts’ price target is $58.56)

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.

Pays a good 5.7% yield. It could be quite defensive in weak markets, and has done well in this current bear market, which is a good sign. It's at 2.5x book value. This could give you a nice capital plus the yield. (Analysts’ price target is $59.03)

The earnings are slow-growth. They pay a safe dividend. They sell products that people would never let go of (cell phones). But there's little appetite for slow-growers that pay dividends. BCE may be looking for another acquisition.

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.)

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%.
