It is heavily indebted following a couple of huge acquisitions. They really need their streaming business to catch fire. The dividend is approaching 7%, but he is starting to question its longevity. He would continue to hold it here.

It has never been more than a dividend investment to him. If you look back a couple of months ago the 5G deployment strategy was going to create a long runway. However, the debt ratio is very high at 60%. He thinks cost savings and revenues from streaming services will help. His price target of $48 is contingent on 5G and streaming being successful. He would wait. Yield 6.9%.

Issue is direct TV. People are streaming a lot. Plus, took on a lot of debt. 5G will help them. Betting on being able to compete with Disney and Netflix. Nice dividend, not an expensive stock. In this environment, he thinks you're safe with it.

(A Top Pick May 23/19, Up 13%) This is doing what it should -- paying a 5% dividend and be less volatile. People are still watching tv. Their corporate debt is solid and they are paying down debt. He will look to buy more. Yield 6%

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.
