Q: I hold these three and I'm wondering about consolidating into one. What would be your pick or is it a reasonable strategy to hold all three for diversification?

Read Answer Asked by Jacques on February 08, 2023

Q: Hi 5i,
I was watching a recorded market call yesterday from early Feb, with Ryan Bushell. He made the case that T will outperform BCE in the coming years (he seems to be very much a long term investor) and he laid out a number of reasons why he thought BCE might underperform T. It made me look at my holdings in each and wonder if I should switch out my BCE for more T.
In reviewing them, the share price of BCE has declined just over 8% in the past year while T is down 9.3%. Their P/E is near the same, but BCE's ROE is currently 15.6% to T's 12.7%. The current yield on BCE is 6.26%, compared to 4.9% for T. Based on my purchase price, I'm earning a little more than that on each - 6.55% on BCE and 5.12% on T.
I know that Ryan's take is based on his view of the future for each name, and he thinks the future is rosier for T. But based on the numbers I've laid out above - which I recognize are all about the past and not the future - I don't see a compelling reason to jettison the BCE I hold in my RSP and use the proceeds to bump up my T.
I would be very interested on your thoughts on the two, looking ahead.
Thanks,
Peter
