RE:Dividend in Jeopardy?

It appears that Bell Alliant has made a 25% cut to the dividend for 2014.  By changing the payout date from the last day of the month to the first week of the following quarter they will only pay out...read more

RE:RE:RE:Bell to buy Aliant?

All the talk of a possible purchaseis strictly due to the fact the BCE owns so much of BA already.  Although the free cash flow will be down it is still very positive.  IF BCE did buy BA it would have...read more

RE:Scotiabank today raised Aliant to outperform with $27 target

Scotia is a wide holder of BA across accounts so they have no interest to downplay how poor 2014 guidance is and the outlook for BA. It's extremely unlikely BCE will pay $30 for BA under 2014/2015...read more
