thx hey all you guys got me wrong I am a long, a disappointed long.I am learning and my take on VZ is that it is a utility stock that is unable to raise prices as necessary in order to conduct business because of de-regulation and competitive pricing pressure.VZ will never breakthrough with technology they will always lag and bottom feed.What ever you see as upside is beyond me,,,I see maybe $50 paying a divvy.Good-luck.
Hard to say,it all depends on the new contract and what it means to earnings going forward.
I cant look anymore,guess I am holding long term as in FOREVER.Its like paying for your own dividend with declining share price!
and I guess you don't call anybody NAMES ever now do you?Like I told killroy the same applies to you.Nothing of substance just rah-rah VZ.Share price and earnings don't lie!
YOU started the "obnoxious games" with the spelling of doddle and killroy you add nothing of substance you are only a cheerleader so rah-rah VZ.I cant look anymore.The share price don't lie!
Build Keystone,let the bitumen flow to the USA refineries and the USA has a reliable source of oil for decades without having to station the USN 6th fleet off the coast of Canada!
Its supply and demand BUT the supply part is also political.The Saudis and Iran are rivals in the middle-east.The Saudis don't like competition from USA/Canada.The Saudis own USA politicians.Now that the Saudis are a max production they are DONE they played their trump card.
Give it a rest and the dividend gets expensive when the share price drops--total gains?NO IMMATURE STUFF---please.
Thanks for explaining that I was wondering how eliminating preferred shares is an advantage.Maybe now CHK is an even more attractive take-over target!
