"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

i started with 100 shares back in 1985, i have a wonderful nest egg of at &t, held it long term, from 1985 , not selling for at least 10 more years, up 623 percent, and thats not including dividends
they have been giving dividends out since the 1980s, and raised there dividends every year, i dont know why people always look at the short term, thats why they never get the nest egg when they retire
i really dont understand the pessimism regarding this report. on a scale of 1 to 10 i would rate it a 4 or 4.5. before the report VZs stock was trading at around 50.70. right now the stock is trading at around 50.90, so that is a 20 cent gain based on a one cent gain in earnings. so tomorrow T should lose maybe 20 cents and not more. i was slightly disappointed in the report but i also saw a lot of positive signs coming out of it like the dtv merger possibility, the incredible growth of uverse(25% revenue). also they took a 2 cent charge because of costs integrating LEAP....some idiot posted that as being a failure of the merger but thats a one time charge and should not be used in calculating future earnings. another one time charge was the 4 cent increase in the sale of AMX shares which i believe stephenson said was due to some tax issues that were non repeating. also ATTs prediction of 800,000 postpaid subscribers came up a little short i believe. so if you toss out the non recurring charges on the amx stock sale and the LEAP integration costs you are actually +5 cents over earnings estimate. still i am a little disappointed but far from panicked. the stock should be discounted maybe 20 cents as a result of this report and maybe not even that.
I told smalls to beat it because he's a clown not worth my time, and my record will clearly show that. You're an embarrassment, harassing T investors here because you are pouting over VOD being a pitiful investment lately and not getting bought by T. LOL at your bitter lower lip.
that depends if labby is a pet dog or a stray dog. if a stray dog then you can check with other animals around and if pet dog then check with your owner. you can not check with smalls because you have already burnt that bridge.
the dtv merger, if done, would be acquired by shares not bonds so debt has nothing to do with it. ATT would keep its A rating for debt.
NO empathy from WALL ST for Middle East - Total GREED ??
Hey, Wall St knows those 600 civillians that have been killed were about 50% Hamas soldiers in civillian clothing, hiding in the regular population, using their own women & children as "human shields" .. launching rockets from schools, hospitals and neighborhoods etc. .. into Israel.
It's a good thing they're just (deadly) bottle rockets on steroids
BUT on the bright side .. our U.S. MSM is making up for WALL St's LACK of Empathy for Gaza and the "Hamas Terrorists" .. as they're being picked on by those 'mean ole' Israeli Soldiers
Go get-um Israel .. enough is enough (Shalom) !!
And your folks are saying 'Thank God Boston hasn't "SWICTHED" to Men' .. (that they know of ??)
.... but "Bos ton", only you & your closet knows for sure ?? .....
PS .. see, I told yall boston couldn't spell worth a dang - dasa fact !!
These heartless souls need their money fix - markets won't even go down in sympathy. A token showing the other day, but nowhere near the levels it should have been! Pure greed and fiction.
I'd do great too if I could just make up revenue and earnings numbers with nooversight and some payola.
The markets are RIGGED!!!!!!!!!!! Obviously.
I like when the reporters come on tv and state that there was bad news such as the the airlines cannot fly into Israel, yet the "markets shrugged it off and airline stocks went higher." Even the reporters look like they want to say #$%$ and don't believe it. But they can't. At least, not publicly. What a scam!
Yep, I did notice subscribers were up and that's a good thing .. but I'm not going to add to either T or VZ other than continue to reinvest divy's
