    Does VZ ever do anything?

    This stock is the master of disaster.

      Go away - You're obviously not an investor. Here is something else you may not know,

      Verizon's taking another step toward doing away with landlines. It's already begun replacing landlines with routers connected by its wireless network as a way to quickly restore service after a storm, but those routers hadn't been made widely available. Now however, Verizon is beginning to sell one online, allowing anyone to connect their entire home internet and voice services to their wireless plan.

      Verizon sees it as a big help for travelers

      Verizon's descriptively named 4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice includes both voice and data service to the home, but the company sees it as much more than that: because it uses a wireless network — and therefore isn't tied down to a specific location — Verizon suggests that it could be toted around to hotels, vacation spots, and the office as needed so that travelers can always have high-speed internet and their home phone number with them. Though it can't function straight through a power outage like traditional phone lines can, Verizon is promising 4 hours of voice service off of a built-in battery backup.

    • you are correct , VZ doesn't do anything ..hell they don't even drop calls anymore ...
      actually , the stock, has climbed from 26 to 46(it was doubled from there when it was 54) .. VZ has also
      increased the div that it pays every quarter ...
      US large caps don't offer much juice day by day .. if you need an adreneline rush , then visit a casino ,
      this is a steady grower that won't yield much fun ...
      you might want to invest in Tesla , or facebook .. big price moves , questionable businesses , no dividends , but
      great fodder for cocktail parties ...garce

    • Hmmm. I have doubled my money with VZ from 2010 all the while (and in addition) getting a dividend of around 5%. Some disaster.

    • Dow recovers to go up 17 points,while VZ chooses to stay down 58c. I keep telling people VZ follows the Dow up just a tintsy wintsy,but follows with force to the down side when the Dow goes down. This stock has been a disaster since the split back in 1998. This stock is looking more and more like the Philadelphia 76ers,Oakland Raiders, the Cubs and Mets. Thanks Guys!
