VZ is on borrowed time...The 30% new share creation is a downgrade waiting to happen...the new dividends add appx 2.6 million a year to a never ending loan and the bloated amount of new shares will create a negative pressure on the stock price ..the 70 billion in new bond debt used to also fund the VOD deal will take Many many years o pay back ...I am very interested to see the earnings report for VZ ..I wouldn't buy VZ until after the real VOD numbers reveal themselves...besides that VZ is overpriced compared side by side to T in any category and T is underpriced ...T is the best deal out there..here is my next underpriced tip for you HE
(IMHO) Yes, why not ? .. if your d.d. and intuition agree and meet a certain amount of logic - - example .. the two top u.s. telecoms, with established records of long term success ... and paying nice divy's
I have both T & VZ, and I hope I'm getting ready for the ride back up to $39 & $54 plus accumilated divy's over the past 4 or 5 years
If you're lookiung for yield, it may be better than de-worsification because there are no others of the same quality.
Anyway, you can try T and RDS or TOT.
If your account is an IRA or other nontaxed, I prefer RDS-B (instead of A)
