Q: Non-registered account with goal of primarily dividend income has done quite well, with all of the noted holdings nicely in positive territory. In hind sight MG and SYZ would have been in a registered account. SYZ is up 63%, MG 24%.
Overall account yield is currently 3.8%. Would prefer it closer to 5%
Need some help with this "good problem". Take capital gain now and move into yieldier positions, or let running stocks run and deal with bigger gain in future?
If I move out of some of the growthier stocks, which div payers minimum 3% yield to move into?
Overall portfolio diversification is pretty decent, and diversification within this account does not have to be perfect - dividend security within this account is more important.

Thanks,
Jim

Q: They are all high-paying dividend stocks, but I want to know why BCE consistently has a higher dividend. Is it because the market is reflecting that BCE doesn't have good growth prospects or are people missing something. Seems like they have at least similar prospects as Rogers (while I know Telus is doing many things outside of telecom so might deserve a higher valuation and lower dividend.)

Within the telecommunication industry, I want to seek for companies that have good growth forecast, reasonable pricing, and mild volatility compared to peers. Dividends Not important. Among T, BCE, and QBR.b, which would be your preference and why, or is there another name you like better? Thanks.

Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,
Portfolio Analytics shows a 6.78% allocation for GSY. (Thanks so much for recommending this company and helping us to grow our portfolio). Would it be prudent to trim GSY, and to what level would you be comfortable with? PA also shows that we need to add some Communications Services, and we presently own only BCE. I was thinking to add some Telus or Rogers, and would appreciate your thoughts. If we go for Rogers, which one (A or B) do you recommend? Thanks as always for your insight.
