are you new to stocks , or corporate analysis ??? sounds like you are one of those who buy a stock to proxy
for a lottery ticket and expect some news story to launch your shares to the stratosphere ... to wit:
1) .. IF this device is the real deal and not just another iteration of what 10 other companies have , then WBS
would be remiss to being bought out , when they could license their proprietary device to everyone ..
2) it would probably be cheaper for VZ to pay for a license , than to buy something outside of their
core competance that could wind up being obsolessed in a few years ....
VZ is like a broker , same as an auctioneer , real estate agent , stock broker .. they don't have to own
anything to make bales of money(yes they need a building and such , VZ needs switches on cell towers ...
they lease space on the towers and put up devices built by somebody else ...
RdRunner522003: No. Not VZ, but Fidelity's service. My big fairy tale is: The VZ CWA union in Brooklyn, is so united, it would never cannibalize any of its own members and that the CWA is a such a big safety net that a dignified union member will never lose his job. No: only if you act as a thug during the strike do they bring you back. If one is a saint he is doomed; for, he doesn't fit the profile.
