i am often right, and i see verizon as a buy. my simple reason is verizon is so far a strong survivor which is due to realign with the major indexes on a ten year track. to do so will mean a nice move up from here. the annual charts and fundamentals like debt really do not look so good, but if verizon doesn't just fail completely i think long term holders will cause this one to push up to around 50 dollars a share. it is sort of like walmart finally just moving up to catch up. i saw that one coming.
