"The market right now is torn between data that suggests the U.S. is waning, and reports that many companies are increasing guidance and beating earnings estimates. This has created a lot of volatility, and if you already have enough strong growth plays in your portfolio, adding some large, established companies with stable cashflows and hefty dividend yields could ease some of the anxiety you may be feeling.Such an approach, in my opinion, is superior to bonds, since bond yields are just too low at these levels. That means you actually risk capital losses if they go up. In addition, safe dividends paid by leading companies are higher than bond yields. And unlike bonds, big companies usually can adjust prices in accordance with inflation.There are a lot of companies for an investor to choose from, but BCE Inc. (BCE) jumps out at me immediately. It is a dominant, well-managed company, and it has strong upside potential.Let me explain...In the new world of telecommunications it's not enough to be the dominant supplier of wireline services to the home. Wireless and Internet telephones are where the big growth has been. That's why telecommunications companies now offer the "triple play," which means bundling home phone service with their Internet and cable television services. This bundling lets providers offer a cheaper price for the bundle than a consumer could get by buying each service separately."cont'dhttp://seekingalpha.com/article/221771-bce-has-canada-covere...
