.. to ever move this stock. Very depressing to see markets soar and this do nothing for so very very long. Problem is when markets go down so will this but when markets rise this does absolutely nothing. Good yield does not make up for this horrid long term performance. Hopefully DTV deal is abandoned or rejected (and the sooner the better). I feel this is a lead weight to stock price. Desperation move.
CEO MUST GO EITHER WAY - 1 penny/quarter div increase doesn't make up for terrible performance - throwing us crumbs.
We've been thru this before ~ your long term watching and my long term purchase.
If you had bought when you said (early 2009) then held since then with T's divy you'd be up $11 per shr plus the divy .. oh never mind, you'd rather beech than invest
But when you add VZ @ $28 + divy's, this helps that balance - then another utility that outperformed the S&P's 13.21% (2013) growth by 16.62% .. yes that's a 28.83% growth so don't sweat my accounts, they do fine WITHOUT your approval. As will AT&T
