While T's yield is tempting, I have looked at my basis ($ 30-31) which equates to nearly a 2X (total return) in just under 4 years.
That's more than 20% per/yr. I like that. I'll parlay the basis for awhile.
Garce's advice caused me to look deeper and when I did the return is hard to beat. VZ fundementals seem sound for the near term. I'm holding for now.
