Q: I can book a tax loss on BCE (never thought I would be saying that), just wondering if I intend to buy it back in 30 days would RCI be an ok placeholder (Telus already owned) or placeholder not needed and just wait the 30 days in cash? (brokerage fees not a consideration). Thanks,

Q: I am thinking of buying Rogers Communications for future growth in the share price. My investment horizon is more than 10 years. Would you say that Rogers is a better choice than BCE or Telus? Please explain the reasoning.

Also, is the current share price of RCI at a good price to buy it or would you wait for it to drop some more?

And what class of shares would be better to buy (Class A or Class B)? Please explain why. Thank you for your insights.

Q: Dear 5i team.

Does it make sense to just buy equal amounts of the big three in Canada, or is there an ETF that provides good exposure to these, along with other adjacent companies?Thanks for your help.

Q: I am a dividend growth investor and Iím running out of patience with Rogers who hasnít increased its dividend in over 3 yrs. It appears that Rogers takeover of Shaw is almost certain at this point. This takeover will cost Rogers 20 billion and likely add significant debt to their balance sheet. Do you see Rogers increasing its dividend anytime soon or ever again? Iím considering selling my Rogers shares for a small profit and using the proceeds to increase my Telus holdings and was curious as to your thoughts on this move. Really appreciate the great service that you provide.

Q: Hello 5i team,

The shares of Rogers Communications are at a more attractive level these days. In your opinion, have they reached a bottom or will they continue to go down because of the expectation of lower earnings due to customer rebates? Is the company a buy, hold or sell? If one was to buy, what would be a good entry point?

Many thanks for your insight.

Q: Hello.
I have owned all 3 of BCE, T and RCI.B for years in an income-generating portfolio of dividend stocks, around 12% of the total.
Considering selling RCI.B and splitting the proceeds between BCE and T, to simplify and to capture more income from BCE and more growth from T.
Does holding RCI.B provide some "diversification" value amongst the three?
Thanks as always.

Q: I have held BCE & RCI.b for 15 years as my Telecom Holdings (5% each of my equity portfolio). I just sold my RCI.b shares due to poor performance over the years plus the current squabble just pushed me over the edge.

Do you think Telus would make a suitable replacement for RCI.b in the Telecom space given its diversification in 5G, health, international etc. even though it doesn't own the Toronto Blue Jays or any other sports teams.
