As one of Shaw's direct competitors, Rogers Communications (RCI) deals with many of the same challenges that Shaw is facing right now -- and a massive short interest ratio.
At present, short-sellers have shoved Rogers' short ratio to 58.42 for shares of the stock's U.S.-traded equity. Rogers is ahead of Shaw in one respect: The company is already Canada's largest wireless provider. That market positioning means that Rogers is able to take advantage of major cross-selling opportunities among its sizable subscriber Rolodex.Shares have already posted double-digit gains this year as management continues to plow a massive chunk of free cash into share buybacks and dividend checks. With a nearly 4% yield and similar financial health to its peers, Rogers looks like a reasonable risk/reward situation right now. Rogers is one of TheStreet Ratings' top-rated wireless stocks.
