Dig a little deaper Tig. The automated calculators are a mess because the dividend is paid twice a year and those two aren't the like amounts either. Annual total is just over a $1.60 for a dividend just under T's yield and above VZ's current yield. People who talk about cash flow squeeze either don't dig or are merely trying to paint a bad picture. Gander capex being rolled out for 4G network in EU to cover +90% by March 2016 as well as fiber builds underway.
VOD was essentially a mobile stand alone with a developing virtual wallet network in Africa. They've made major moves to become a triple bundler with fiber/fiber hybrids which includes very advanced fiber networks held under the cable company purchases. Those who don't read up on the two big purchases, Kabel Deutschland and Ono, as well as some who do read up, fail to recognize those two have pretty comprehensive fiber. Ono has a network in Spain that will dovetail nicely with a fiber initiative VOD had going with Orange. The former Spanish gov't monopoly Telefonica fiber network pales in comparison to Ono/VOD. The joint VOD/KD cable/fiber/LTE now covers 97% of households in Germany. Direct ownership of networks in 13 of 16 with a war chest to roll into the other 3 instead of using an agreement with DT. Emerging markets will provide tons of growth for years to come while it moves into a fortified bundler across core European markets.
Again, I'm not the one bringing up VOD but I will talk about it here to T longs if they want to talk VOD growth versus DTV
Article suggested Tmus (Legere) & Tmus potential sutor are two of the most flamboyant Crack-Pots in the telecom industry .. so that will promote that union to a "TWO RING CIRCUS" :-)
I don't think so. I know it cracks me up to see a person post about how busy a store is and make an assumption about that but here I go: Was on a major L.A. freeway today and the number of trucks was astounding. This may not be 4% growth but the economy is or country is busy. I am on these freeways every day :( Have been for 13 years now and I am telling you, busy times.
35.5 = 5.18 % Doesn't thrill me. Rather buy VZ or KMP or maybe even BA. Stephenson worries me. Even you who like him, he gave away 4 Billion dollars, that's a huge mistake.
Argentina? don't cry for me?
not sure it is argentina as much as Russia and some earnings but you know Obama will do whatever it takes to keep the market up. Without the DOW he has accomplished nothing. Just a ton of handouts.
Tried to buy back some of the 37.25 shares I sold but didn't get 'em
Seen this tired act before. The sky is falling, sell you suckers! Oops, made a mistake. Thanks for unloading your shares to us on the cheap. The "Argentina crisis" really wasn't that bad after all. Did we say 'thanks' for unloading your shares to us for a cheap price? Thanks again, suckers, see you again soon for the next 'crisis' or 'rally', LOL!
You and your posts are dumb, and as you said in one of your posts in June----you use lots of aliases. Get some ambition and get out of your mommy's basement.
