Doubling it won't do IMHO. However, 57 would be a good number to anticipate. Notice that VZ is not suffering as much as most stocks during this this market turbulance? Earnings announcement tomorrow will strengthen VZ. Can't beat the dividend and can't beat VZ for a better long term investment regardless of what the "experts" on this Board state.. I have held VZ since retirement 20 years ago and math tells me that including dividends VZ has given me a 6.5% average annual return. Better than my 2% CD's.
