This deal is extremely accretive to VZ bottom line. The future is in wireless. They are the superior carrier and will own the market going forward. This is a fantastic long-term investment as well as a great time to get in for just a short-term trade for the next few weeks. I can't believe the dribble I'm hearing on CNBC about VOD being the stock to invest in. Are they kidding? VOD needs the money, period, end of story! Europe is extremely regulated with respect to wireless and VZ will have enormous growth potential going forward. Talk about small minded! VZ is an exceptional company, great yield, great company, great growth. Should be owned in every portfolio.
