Tremendous balance sheet. Benefit from 5G. Caution that the rollout may not be as smooth as expected. Longer term, well situated. Too expensive for him today.

Operates like a REIT, buying and leasing back to AT&T and Verizon cell and broadcast towers, though more outside the U.S. They just bought 30,000 towers from a Spanish company, so the number of towers is growing. The problem is that it's always been pricey, trading above 50x earnings. They grow through acquisition and they need to keep doing that. Likes AMT, but not their PE.

It's going down, because it depends on interest rates, which are very low. He prefers Crown Castle.

It is a well run business and they will benefit from the growing use of data and the 5G trend. It is not overly cheap. Now might not be a bad time to look at it, though.

Risk of interest rate hikes, if they happen. He continues to like the business as a long-term hold. Big moat. Long-term contracts, built-in escalators, capacity for multiple tenants. Great business model.

(A Top Pick Oct 04/19, Up 0%) He's still actively buying it. Hasn't done much, as everyone is buying growth right now, not value. 5G will be big for it. Good one to own and at this price.

(A Top Pick Nov 21/19, Up 13%) Long term aspects of AMT looks good. US data usage doubles every two years. Carriers will continue to invest in domestic markets for 5G. In developing markets, the move to 4G will continue to increase. A REIT type name. The stock shows some sign of fatigue but it still pays a good dividend. Neutral on this stock.

Has done phenomenally well. Looks as though it's rolling over. FMV is 54% lower than current price. Price to book is 21x. If growth/momentum continues to swing to value, he'd be nervous. Technical support at $229-230 and you can hold it there with your heart in your hand. If that lets go, it will join others on the downswing.

Are there Canadian cell tower stocks to play 5G? They don't exist here, because the telecoms here own their own towers. He prefers to play pure cell towers which is more scalable and offers more leverage (i.e. several telecoms can use the same tower). Look to American Tower and Crown Castle in the U.S. American has never been cheap, because it has a strong string of towers in the U.S. as well as India and Europe, boasting double-digit growth over many years. He has owned this for a decade.

(A Top Pick Oct 04/19, Up 14%) Growth play and yield play. With 5G and smart cars, more equipment has to be mounted on towers. Not sexy, but steady. Sees a growing dividend over time.

CCI vs AMT? He owns both. They are both tower businesses operating in the US. CCI also has a small cell business -- mini towers in urban centres. 5G will require these small cell towers and this gives more leverage to 5G. However, AMT has more diversification as they have a larger global footprint. Sometimes CCI overstates reporting results, which although not a concern at this time, it does make AMT a little easier to follow. At current valuations, CCI is better value and better positioned for the 5G roll out.

There is so much more data usage working from home. 5G is coming and will be revolutionary. They will charge more rent on towers for the equipment. He loves it. (Analysts’ price target is $262.50)

As a 5G play? Entry point? Buy some now, if you don't own it, then follow it and buy another tranche. He buys in systems of three tranches. AMT is a leader in towers for 5G. They are aggressive in Africa. They pay a decent yield below 2% that they likely won't increase this year as in past years.
