Telus is one of my favourite stocks, Telus is the third largest telecommunications company in Canada. Some highlights from the latest quarter are:

  • Added 115,000 net postpaid wireless, Internet and Telus TV customers.
  • Industry leading wireless monthly postpaid churn* of 0.94 per cent.
  • ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) growth of 3.8%, 24th consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth.
  • Announced 12th dividend increase in the past six years.

*Churn rate is the amount of customers or subscribers who cut ties with the company.

Transaction Details

Before this purchase I currently owned 69 shares with an average cost of $42.78.

On December 1st I purchased another 31 shares at $42 = $1,302 + $9.99 (trading cost) = $1,311.99.

Now I have an even 100 shares 🙂

Dividend

With the new dividend announcement Telus now pays a quarterly dividend of $0.48. So with the 31 new shares my forward income increases by $59.52.

Thanks for reading

    1. Thanks Tristan Telus is a very good stock for dividend investors for the last six years they have increased the dividend 12 times. I will look to buy more shares if they go lower.
