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.

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.

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.

A 5G play? AMT-N did run into a technical break point at $235. Fundamentally, it is extremely highly valued -- 60% over valued by his models. There is an acceleration in current stock price move that he attributes to the 5G influence. You are paying for it now as it pays out most of its earnings in a dividend -- $3.68 per share -- that has a high payout ratio. You are speculating at this point. He would not buy here.

Down 30% last month! It should be a steady-Eddy story, but the change in interest rates has been negative on this. He likes XLRE-N as it holds 40% in data centres and towers. At the end of the day, apps files and photos all require more data-bytes which will be going through 5G towers. If strong economic rates resume, this will likely get beaten up. He will likely be stopped out of his position.

American Tower is participating in the 5G evolution in the US. Their problem is being a REIT, it creates all sorts of tax issues for Canadian investors. In the build out of 5G, a lot of smaller towers are required -- not exactly their forte. Crown Castle is probably better in this space.

Unsightly towers are put up all across the country and then carriers put equipment on these towers to transmit frequencies. Once the tower is built there is really no more expense to the company. They collect rent from the carriers. As you add them to your tower, your margins skyrocket. 5-G will be the dominant theme over the wireless space but it will be very lumpy. Carriers will have to deploy small cells between towers. He does not expect this to be the dominant theme in the near term.

He prefers another name, Crown Castle, CCI-N, which does the same thing as AMT-N, but trades at a 2-multiple point discount to American Tower. AMT is the bellweather, but CCI benefits from the towers they run but also in small-cell applications, which is like the next generation of 5G. CCI also pays a nice dividend and benefits from lower rates.

A great company and likely a good long-term hold, but it keeps setting new highs. It has great prospects for growth with the influx of 5G. It's structured like a REIT so they payout 90% of income. The yield has fallen to 1.9% because the stock has zoomed up. The 50-day moving average is $170 so look for that level.
