    • Any pullbacks are good entry points, based on what Verizon reported this last quarter, it should sweet going forward. Would expect Verizon to announce a dividend increase in September. Base on the track record, it would probably be safe to assume a .015 cent dividend increase, anything above that hides the real strength in the Verizon numbers. Dividend increases since September 2000, this is what I found.

      09/13 - .53
      09/12 - .515
      09.11 - .50
      09/10 - .4875
      09/09 - .4750
      09/08 - .46
      09/07 - .43
      2006 - no dividend increase
      03/05 - .4050
      09/00 thru 12/04 - .3850

      Perhaps the price is going down to increase the dividend yield.
