Q: Is it true that Telus's dividend has not been covered between 2020-22 and won't be for the following two years?

Other than the benefits of both this sector's limited competition in our country and
this government's immigration policy that has been put in place, are there any other reasons why Telus holds a relatively large PE valuation relative to the single digit PE's of both AT&T and Verizon?

Q: Hi Folks,

My RRSP portfolio consists of the above stocks all with relatively the same weighing. Can you suggest 5 names or so, (CDN and U.S) that I take a look at that would complement the above? I am looking for a company that would be a good buy today for both income and capital appreciation - total return.

Q: I know you don't like comparing ETFs to single stocks...but I'm going to put a question out there anyway. I currently hold TELUS in a non-registered account. As I've held it for a very long time, I'm up 20%, but I feel the stock is stalled for a number of reasons. Given that I bought it for the dividend as well as some growth, I would appreciate your advice on trading it for HMAX. Please compare total estimated growth for both T and HMAX over the next 3-5 years. Additionally, with interest rates expected to begin falling next year, how would that impact the price of HMAX? Thank you.

Q: I own the above high dividend yield Canadian stocks, just under 4% yield and up. I am looking to add maybe 10 to 20 % to 4 or 5 positions. The yield on these is enough for us now so no hurry to sell anything.
Retired, but still looking at safety of capital. I have left out O&G plays and other potentially riskier plays. (except Enbridge)

Which of these, or other stocks do you believe have the greatest potential for price appreciation over the next couple of years if/when interest rates drop.

I am looking for your top 5, here but feel free to add other picks.

Thank you. Take as many credits as needed.

Q: I own the companies in question in an unregistered investment account. To offset some capital gains I was thinking of divesting myself of some of these investments. Please rate them in order of disposition in your opinion. I am a retired investor who believes in companies with a history of dividends. Additionally, can you suggest 3 potential investment replacements, thanks.

Q: Hi,

Total return, long term investor with a diversified portfolio. If you had new money to add to a portfolio, would you consider CCL.B and T decent prospects, especially on weakness in the last year or so (these are small holdings in my portfolio)?
Thanks, Michael

Q: These stocks all have a dividend yield of 5% or greater and have market capitalization greater than 3 billion. When I see BNS with a dividend yield of 7.5% I have to think that the market is near a bottom realizing that the prices can always go lower. Please rate these stocks in two ways: safety of dividend and estimated 5-year total return. Do any of these stocks cause you any concern now or long term? Thanks.

Q: What advice can you offer when considering the purchase of a stock that has declined to attractive levels, but in so doing has become vulnerable to tax loss selling given the time of year? Kinaxis, Brookfield Renewable and Telus come to mind, but there are others.

Q: Hi folks,
I am looking at topping up to a full position in either Telus, BCE or ENB. This will be in my TFSA account. Can you recommend one that not only will have some growth when interest rates peak but the dividend will remain intact as well.

Q: These large cap dividend stocks have declined significantly. Would you consider them on sale now to add or purchase at these time? Eventually these stocks should recover perhaps even without cutting theirs dividends.
Thanks for your input on this matter.
