DON'T BUY
Unlike in Canada, US telcos have done poorly in their competitive environment. Not a fan.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
Company caught in "value trap" where stock price looks cheap, however earnings disappoint and stock price continues to go down. Not much growth going forward and believes dividend must be cut. Believes a communication services company rather than a tech stock. Advises not to buy stock.

DON'T BUY
Significant debt. Overall business is not growing enough to sustain that amount of leverage. People get sucked in by the high dividend yield. Borrowing to sustain the dividend is not a recipe for share price success. He doesn't own any of the telcos right now, and if he did, he'd look closer to home.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
At $25, this is okay, but otherwise no. Sell if it rises $2. It suffers from a bad balance sheet, bad management and bad ideas.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
Yield around 7.5%, which is a warning sign. Rudderless. History of making poor investments, trying to buy its way out of a dying business with acquisitions. Lots of debt. Companies laying their own fibre optic cable can bypass the big telecoms.
Telecommunications
BUY
In a good position now, after disastrous acquisitions. Now a pure play. Cost-cutting on core businesses. Will be bringing down debt. Great yield. 5G will really help them.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
He owns no telcos right now. Very leveraged balance sheet is a concern. Stability of the business can usually handle more debt, but AT&T is not growing that much. Interest rate sensitive. Not a high ROIC. Like a ship that's slowly sinking by the weight of its liabilities. Look at BCE or Telus.
Telecommunications
BUY
He's taking a serious look at this. They're in a unique situation: they will sell some assets and acquire Discovery, and will cut their dividend in mid-2022 by roughly 40%, though it is high right now. Their new CEO started last year, and things seem to be heading in the right direction. If you want income, you can still invest in this and hold it in an RRSP. It trades around 9x earnings. The Canadian telecoms are a lot more expensive, by comparison at 17-19x PE, but you'd buy these for the dividends.
Telecommunications
COMMENT
You will get shares in the newly merged Discover-Warner company. The tax treatment is still unknown for Canadian holders of AT&T. For American investors, it is tax free. As a result of the transaction, the AT&T dividend is probably going to be cut in half. There is an argument that it will stop being a yield stock and become a hybrid. The stock is down as a result.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY

Today, Wall Street hailed news of the AT&T and Discovery merger as a transformational blockbuster, but he sees it as the final act in one of the dumbest deals in recent history, AT&T's $85-billion buy of Time-Warner of nearly three years ago. Why would a telephone company buy a media business? Synergy? Really? AT&T took on huge debt. The dividend has been slashed in half. This is a tremendous destruction of value. A disgrace.

Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
The dividend is safe and could even grow it in coming years. All the wireless carriers are investing and building for 5G. Capex will be high, but once 5G is built, AT&T will be fighting for customers. He'd rather invest in the towers because they don't need to wait for price competition. Rather, they benefit from the carriers as they upgrade to 5G. He prefers the towers to the telcos in 5G.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
You're reaching for their 7% yield, but you lose peace of mind. Pass.
Telecommunications
DON'T BUY

Pays a safe 7% dividend. An issue is that they bought Time-Warner, so they need to reduce a lot of debt in coming years. They are the second biggest player in pay TV and mobility. In mobility, there's a great opportunity in 5G which will come to fruition later this year and more so in 2022. A bigger problem is Time-Warner: ATT is way behind the streaming business, and movies are in trouble during Covid. How do these issues play out? Hard to tell. To compare, competitors Verizon has shifted towards a telecom company, away from a media one. He prefers Verizon.

Telecommunications
DON'T BUY
Too risky. Don't buy this only for the yield. Never.
