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.

It has benefited from a secular change. With 5G you are making a bet on that with this stock as it will give them continued growth. They are stable and global and you always have to weigh global risk.

Likes it. Largest operator of wireless towers. A lease on data. Consumption of data is increasing. Low beta vs. the S&P. Won't jump as much when the market bounces, but a nice long-term name to own.

For a 5G play, he would bet on Apple because everyone will need to buy a new phone. American Tower is a 5G play, and they charge rent from telecomms for their towers and equipment. They can't lose in that opportunity. The company is also figuring out new ways to increase the rent base.

This REIT has growth, and growth is more important than a high yield. This plays directly into 5G beautifully. He owns few REITs but likes this one.

They are dominant in the US. They don’t have the small tower business but they have a global footprint. There are many markets globally that are not mature. This is a business he really likes.

Develops and owns wireless communication and broadcast towers globally. Need for a lot of data is as unavoidable as death and taxes. Data consumption in US is doubling every two years. Good defensive name. Yield is 1.78%. (Analysts’ price target is $222.53)

AMT vs CCI? AMT has been a gift that keeps on giving. In the REIT space, it has great dividend growth. 5G is coming down the pipe and they are well positioned. Tactically, there may be some re-allocation going on that may cause some pull back. CCI is similar and both offer dividend growth.

Infrastructure. They own cell phone towers. They've had a good run over the last 3 years. They penetrate in areas around the world, and a play on cell phone usage. Not a bad stock, but long-term he prefers Brookfield Infrastructure for its geographic diversity.

Almost a REIT for the wireless business in the US -- as they rent space on the towers to large cell providers. However, AMT is a bit expensive with 20 times multiples. 50% of their business is outside the US, so the name is a bit misleading. They are still deploying 4G LTE in the developing markets and now 5G is rolling out.
