I've been accumulating VZ in a trust I run for the last few weeks. Kind of discouraging the way it has kept moving down. Still, it technically doesn't look too bad and then there is that 4.3% yield. I'm going to stick with it although I had planned to be shedding a few shares by now. I'm a little overweight and it just keeps doing feebly. It has been banging on that 200 day line for a couple of weeks now.
I picked it up on account of the high yield and I figured it would not get hit to hard if interest rates rise in the coming months. It may be that investors figure it is a paraiah in a rising interest rate environment and keep puking it out. I guess we just have to be patient until the sellers are all gone.

In the last few years, we have reduced our home Verizon land lines from 3 to 1 and dropped all prepaid call plans. Our bill has dropped almost 80%. We keep one land line for: emergencies; outgoing 1 800 calls; conference calls where we need a good speaker. Virtually all of our incoming calls come from the Verizon - permitted telemarketing scammers.
Many people in our apartment building have dropped land lines entirely. I'm guessing that your grandchildren will ask - what's a dial tone?
And no, we do not own Verizon stock.
Why a $2.788 billion global box office movie record-breaker could launch DEQI into the exploding mobile gaming industry and how traders can capitalize right now
thank you , i think that a key fact that most retail investors fail to grasp is the
total power of dividends .... check out MSFT ... the current div is modest , but
if one had shares purchased around 30 , well before the 1st spit , that would
now be 128 shares ... multiply that by the current div , then div that buy original
share purchase price and you are making well over 100% per year on original
investment ... why sell something like that ???
eventually , your $25 shares will be returning 20% or more , i'll have to
wait a while longer for my 31's , in the meantime , i sleep well ... g
I agree with you hawcreek, but watch out, the longs don't like bashing. I mean, how dare you voice your opinion here!!!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Crazy Alert ---- Crazy Alert ---- still_my_dime isn't making any money so we should have a pity party? Oh, and blames Verizon's success on a telemarketing firm.
As far as FB, yes Trump was right and I never would have figured that one either.. It's all about timing as well. BTW I am hearing larger investors are moving monies back into Private Equity. Something is up.
Skeetz, hey for every seller there's buyer, right? I do have a good luck story for you. I bought MNKD on the bio tech hype. I had a good "feeling" about that one too. It was that dry powder "feeling" that I got. So my "feeling" was that I got in after FDA approval of their drug at around $6.90. FDA approved it and the stock went up to $11 ish. I had this "feeling" though, maybe I should set a stop loss. I did that and Q2 came out and the hype went bye-bye. Moral of the story: Do you really have that Lovin' Feeeeling?. Yes, I made some $ but is it worth the hassle? Ask Trump if you want to know. I have the $$$ but I am not that crazy
Did you buy Yahoo at $15.80 when coldone told you to? That was the play. Yahoo has over doubled since then on Alibaba's value. Look for Yahoo to gain another $10 per share once Alibaba is fully valued.
Verizon Communications, Inc. (NYSE: VZ) Berkshire raised from 11,022,743 shares to 15,000,928 shares. Again interesting he doesn't own T.
Tell that to the smart folks that sold at 53, 52, 51, 50, 49, 48!!!!!!! How low will it go? You are certainly not convincing anyone to buy!!!!!! Bwaaahahaha!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Forget the federal govt. Its called "follow the money". I cannot imagine that Verizon is so technically lame that they can't figure out where these calls originate and stop them from entering the network. Of course, if they are getting paid to carry the calls ....
Uncle Sam and the state you live in thank you for the capital gains tax you freed them. My cost basis in VZ is ~$33. I pay no tax on the divs. When VZ gets to $60 and beyond- and you know it will sometime, who makes out better- the trader or the holder?
Interesting that Warren owns VZ and not T. VZ has T beat hands down, but T's dividend is better. I own both.
