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.

It dropped more than the S&P. The trend was up and to the right. This is a good purchase. If we break through $208 then we are headed to $196. Take half your position now.

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.

Owns and operates wireless communications towers globally. Primarily in US, Brazil, and India. Good time to buy this week with the mini-selloff. Lots of runway for growth, as we need the cell phone data. Great long-term, secular growth rate. Yield is 1.73%. (Analysts’ price target is $220.80)

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.

5G? He bought into this back in Q1. It is a REIT of commercial towers around the world. He has a target of $223 -- very close to market. Yield 1.8%

They build towers for telcos. They've grown with 3G and 4G and they should be a major beneficiary of 5G. Trades at 25X earnings, very well run company, it's global. Great growth overseas as land lines have disappeared in places like India.

Interest rates are waning now and REITs like this perform well in this environment. Low beta stock of 0.7. They own and lease cell towers. Lots of runway for growth in this sector. Particularly in EM. Great visibility. Interesting name long-term but it went a little too high now.

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.

He is watching it now. Many of the REITs in Canada are staring to perform. Yields moving up are less of a concern now. Dividend should increase over time. He still prefers the staples and health care names.

REITs as a whole are having a tough time with rising interest rates. However, American Tower is one of the highest-growth REITs, performing well ahead of its peers. Own it for a rising dividend. It is not economically sensitive. AMT is great if you're looking for an income stream though the shares may not rocket higher. A good income-producing stock.

This has the cell towers and fiber-optic networks that are going through all US cities. He is more attracted to the bonds than to the stocks, because it is a highly leveraged company. They are on the edge of investment grade, so a downturn could hurt. Demand for speed and 5G is coming and is going to be an opportunity. If you want to go into a company like this, the volatility is going to be very high, so you only want to go in with a half position, and manage it over time.
