    • The dividend right now is C$ 1.54 per annum.

      But I think stay away from this stock. Factoring out the Nortel hysteria and temporary insanity at Ontario Teachers Pension Fund and you will discover that this company has been lacklustre for decades and not much one can see that's gonna change that.

      Plenty of other Canadian high yielding stocks with better upside potential and without the moribund risk associated with this chronic under performer.

      Here's a little recent tid-bit from Stock Chase --

      "Traditional telephone providers are not going to be the winners. It will be wireless for personal communication and wires for TV sets. Cable companies have won that battle. Thinks dividends are safe for the next couple of years but questions if they grow. Would rather own the debt (which he does) rather than the stock." -- Analyst Lyle Stein 6/30/09

      Well I'm not sure I'd want to own BCE's debt (or anyone else's for that matter), but clearly the Cable Guys have been winning the battle. Not a trend I'd want to be on the losing side of.
