Over the past 6 months, a key resistance level has formed in Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI).

RCI is the largest wireless service provider in Canada, with more than 10 million subscribers, representing one third of the total Canadian market.

RCI has been benefiting from increased Internet subscribers and a shift in these subscribers to higher price tiers. The company should see growth through its investments in 5G spectrum and partnerships with real estate companies that support 5G infrastructure deployment.

RCI’s debt level is high, with long-term debt $14.4 billion at the end of the third quarter, compared to only $1.7 Billion cash. The company has a solid profit margin of 11.4% and a current ratio of 1.1.

The company is reasonably priced with a P/E of 18.4. In terms of momentum, the stock has underperformed over the long-term, but has shown recent strength. RCI is rated a “Buy” in our POWR Ratings system, with a grade of “B” in Buy & Hold Grade and Peer Grade.
