They bought Direct TV, which is losing subscribers; also have internet and wireless operations. They bought Time-Warner, so they're going into the streaming business, but have taken on a lot of debt to do that. They've sold some assets to reduce that debt which remains high. Pays a nice dividend though. In contrast, Verizon, sticks to internet and wireless. Verizon is more expensive.

Owns it in their income growth fund. Tries to buy it below $35 and would start reducing over $40. A nice fat dividend. Stock has been reacting a bit to some recent acquisions. You own it for the dividend, the long term growth is there.

One of the most indebted companies  in the US. He thinks the money they spent on Time Warner wasn’t worth it. Over the years, management hasn’t made good decisions in allocating its capital. At these prices, it is fully valued. Dividend is 5.4%.

He would buy Bank of America. The stock is still very cheap, price to book value. It has a decent growth rate. This is the one to be buying in this kind of climate.

He thinks, as a yield holding, it is a good holding. They have made missteps along the way and will not likely grow in capital appreciation. Yield 5.5% (Analysts’ price target is $36.00)

He would buy it at current levels. They own it now. There is still good upside. Looking back over 5 years, it has under-performed relative to the general market. They need to get more savvy on the operations of their company. This means staying focused.

VZ-N or T-N? VZ-N is a high-quality operator, especially in wireless. Their ROC is 5 times higher than the peer group. You can expect them to continue and are well positioned for 5G, which is beginning to roll out in the US already. This can take market share away from some of the cable companies. He still prefers AT&T (yield 5.4%) as they have more upside once they clear away their current operations inefficiencies. Yield 4.0%

He has not looked at this US regional telco for a while (CTL-N). The issue for them is they do not have wireless infrastructure. This is a hindrance. Hopefully they will figure it out. A better play is T-N.

He would stay away from AT&T. He is not into the telco theme. There is a better way to get yield. He would like to see wireless competition stabilize -- it is a cut throat business. For yield, he likes real estate or utilities instead. He would hold XLRE -US as the ETF to hold for a yield of 3.1%.

VZ vs T? He does not see telecom as being a great place right now. There is intense price competition. Wireless is a brutal space. He would suggest you look elsewhere.

Buy Verizon? At this point in the cycle, interests rates are getting quite low, generally getting a telco is an interesting idea and been recommending this for clients. Recently got out of Verizon and substituted into AT&T. Nothing wrong with Verizon, 5G, fiber-to-the-home, etc. everything is going to work, just thinks there is a better yield opportunity with AT&T. Also owns Deutsche Telekom to play the T-Mobile Sprint merger.

They are 40% wireless now. Cable content and media are good he thinks. The wireless side has enormous competition and high asset complexity. He likes it now that it is more diversified. A good dividend works well during a flat yield period. He would prefer real estate if you are looking for yield. Yield 6%

The Canadian telco's are a staple in balanced portfolios. This is not the same story with US telco's. They spent a lot of money making acquisitions leveraging up the balance sheet. The dividend is high. However, the share price has been range bound. So the performance of the stock has not been meaningful. He thinks the chance of AT&T raising their dividend is very low. They are selling off some assets to pay off some debt.

AT&T vs. BCE. Two issues are currency and market size. Likes BCE's balance sheet better, but worries about ability to withstand competition if Canada ever deregulates telcos. AT&T has a lot of debt, and he worries about ability to pay it down and still pay the dividend. AT&T lives in a deregulated market. They're trying to pivot and be a data provider at a time when government's saying you can't sell data. The content war is big and rough. Would avoid the space.

Numbers last quarter weren't the greatest. Lots of debt. Media and telco space in US has a lot going on, very competitive. Trying to find a way to monetize the distribution. Prefers BCE, which operates in the much safer business environment in Canada, and has a good dividend of 5%.
