A neighbor called yesterday, complained about his 1% interest from his bank CD - we talked stocks.
He has some stocks .. D, old philip morris ??, etc. (not much)
We talked Telecoms & 5% divy's .. I pushed T over VZ. for $ per share, the growth for Rural areas that T is working towards (U-verse), and that we live rural, he has "old centel" & I have VZ (both copper). However he has a cell tower one mile from his house and VZ cell ser.
I reminded him that AT&T was the Long Lines that VZ was split from .. then it made sense to him about T's expansion
I'll have to check with him and see if his purchase pushed T stock up today (??) .. chuckles ...
