He got concerned with the lawsuit, sold and bought SLF instead, but there's nothing wrong with MFC. He has shifted away from insurance to REITs, because the latter will benefit when interest rates are cut. You will do fine with MFC in the long term. Pay a 4.3% dividend, so you're paid to wait. This should drift a little higher. The valuation is reasonable, about 1x book.

He owns Verizon instead where he'd rather be when 5G falls into place. Verizon is focussed on 5G. AT&T is not ready because they are distracted by merger talks. Switch to Verizon if you hold AT&T.

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.

He really likes this. A really interested Montreal company. They help brick-and-mortar run accounting, point-of-sale and other ways to run those businesses. The IPO was priced correctly. He sold out at $25 and missed this last leg. It is wildly popular. Wait for a lower stock price under $30. Business will be volatile, but LSPD is the real deal.

Given the lower rates offered to consumers by Canadian telcos. Investors think the rate cuts (unlimited rates for broadband) it'll cut into their profitablility, but this model has existed in the US for a long time and the American carriers are still very successful. The Canadian telcos needed to correct its offerings to consumers in this way. He prefers Rogers, whose stock has performed a little better. Bell is spending more in laying fibre, while Rogers is spending on 5G.

This used to be his largest oil holding. Investors are worried. The whole oil complex is under pressure, but this is a good company. Canada doesn't have a pipeline, and he doesn't see that changing soon. However, if another pipeline is built, then CPG will greatly recover. He doesn't own much oil, only 3-5% in his portfolio.
