    Base Building in $44's

    That's fine with me.

    If after VZ reports Q1 it does look like Revenue is going to grow in the 4% range and Operating EPS up in the 18% range for 2013 then the stock should tack on a few points and run in the $48 dollar range. If Q2 confirms the trend then it could run a little on the expectation of a bigger than norm dividend increase or a debt pay down, or some other capital move like a share buyback of size. A share buyback makes more sense for T in my view because they own 100% of wireless. If VZ could buy back VZW shares it would be a no brain-er -- but a share of VZ gets you some wireline asset repurchase implicit in the price. T's wireline looks better and they are actively managing the biz. Not that VZ doesn't do a lot of things right but the profits per dollar of revenue are better at T.

    Whatever the case, if Operating EPS heads up to a growth rate in the 20% range it will be a very good year.

    My big concern is a cut back in Fed spending at too fast of a rate. The negative GDP for Q4 2012 on a drestic drop of Fed spending was something to consider. Thank Steve Job's for the iPhone to lead the way to the smart-phones becoming like wrist watches.
