this whole thing with VOD has become far beyond my comprehension .. on the surface , it would seem a no
brainer for VZ to by that 45% of VZW ... now there is talk of a merger , or something with ATT and VZ buying
the whole show and splitting the spoils .... VZ has stated that it's in no hurry to do anything ... is there
potential poison in any of the potential dealings ? Also contrary to popular opinions , i have to believe
that there is still beau koo value in wirelines(obviously not all ) ...
does anyone have real numbers to share as to what any deal between VZ and VOD would mean ? the price
tag for that 45% seems to be around 135 bil ... that would buy a very nice revenue stream , as well
as CFC .... the preferred and common divs would also go to VZ , but i would imagine that the preferreds and
some common shares would be retired , thus reducing the cash outflows ...
this thing gets more confusing over time ... later .. garce
