A combination of a regional phone business in Ontario and Quebec along with the Aliant business in eastern Canada. Feels that landlines in these areas are very stable. Expected to grow at a 1%-3% range. 8% yield.

Will probably trade in the range of $32 to $35. Not a lot of growth. Acquiring Bell Nordique (BNQ.UN-T) and issuing some units. That puts pressure on the stock price. Once Telus (T-T) converts, it will be a better story than this one.

7.8% yield. Good quality. Well managed. Will grow at 1%. 2%, 3% a year. Dependable, measurable capital expenditures so you will be able to count on the distributions. Also has capital gain potential.

A stable business, but there is competition from the cable companies and margins are slipping slightly. Tremendous free cash flow business but there are problems on the horizon.

Bell Canada (BCE-T) still owns a lot of this. It does pay a decent level of income but doesn't expect there will be a lot of income growth. Would prefer a higher dividend-yielding name like Verizon (VZ-N) with a 4.6% yield.

Growth of only 3/4%. You are buying this really for the yield in the low 8%. Pretty fully priced.

Expected to yield 7/8%. Very little risk. Using it as a cash substitute.

Likes it. Won't be a high-growth business. Mostly wire-line. Generating lots of cash. Good yield.

About 8.5% yield. A little bit of attrition to the landlines. Would have liked it better if Bell had endowed it with the same asset base as Bell Nordique, where there is wireless and cable as well as the landlines.

A good valuation. 8.5% yield. Not growing a lot but there’s not risk in the core business. A decent size and thinks the yield will improve.

A very smart restructuring and was the absolutely right thing to do. Good for shareholders short-term and long-term. Very modest capital appreciation four people who were looking for steady income. There won't be substantial growth.

A great conservative, stable way to participate in the telephone industry. Yields about 8%. Conservative payout ratio of about 90%. Possible increased distributions in the next year or so because of surplus cash flow. Have some interesting acquisition opportunities.

This was a spin off of rural phone lines from Bell Canada (BCE-T). Generally, rural phone lines are less competitive than city lines. Doesn't like government control and can see much growth. Will be very tough for them to compete.
