VOD isnt going down cheap - = VZ comes up with an agreeable buy - VZ is home free now -
that will knock down earnings for awhile - = for sure - = will this make VZ investors looking at a less than .03 % divy ? checkmate ?
If VZ gets the rest of wireless, with the existing cashflow plus what it will become with the extra 45% will take care of the debt. Money is cheap today, cashflow isn't. If they are going to go into debt, now is the time.
