    $48.115 is the value posted on the VOD website.

  • dwb360 by dwb360 Feb 19, 2014 4:33 PM Flag

    Would anyone care to guess what the dividends on VZ and VOD might be after all the dust has settled?

    Sentiment: Buy

  • dwb360 dwb360 Sep 8, 2013 9:43 PM Flag

    I expect that after the distribution the stock will slowly rise back to around $32 providing a dividend return of approximately 5.26%.

    I believe that after we have received the special cash dividend and verizon stock vod should be priced to yield a dividend of approximately 5 %.. Taking the new dividend rate of approximately $1.67/share I would hope that Vod would sell at approximately its current price.

    Why Mitt LOST

    by greedyoilbastards Nov 8, 2012 7:14 AM
    dwb360 dwb360 Nov 9, 2012 6:23 PM Flag

    He lost because he kept changing his positions on major issues and could not convince the voters that his tax plan was credible would solve the unemployment problem.

  • What we need is a President who has shown that he is willing to compromise and that is not Mitt. During the Republican debates he indicated that he would be unwilling to accept a deal that included $10 in spending cuts for every 1$ in increased taxes. He has given no indication of backing away from that position. He has also signed the Norquist Tax Pledge. Even the CEO’s of the largest U. S corporations are calling for compromise and realize that increased taxes must be part of the “deal”.

    Bloomberg was at one time a Republican. Powell still is but both supports Obama. What does that tell you? Moderate Republicans are leaving the party because of its far right agenda which does not represent the majority of the population. After having voted for Eisenhower, Nixon, Goldwater, and Ford I find that Republican party of today no longer reflects my views.

    Why I can't vote for Romney

    I can agree with your point regarding Social Security. However, as I'm sure you are aware for each buyer there is also a seller. So while you might have made money in the market someone else was a loser. Unfortunately a lot of individuals as well as fund managers sell towards the bottom of a correction and fail to buy back into in a timely manner. These individuals are the ones that benefit most from Social Security.

    Sorry, You are wrong. I went to one of the best private liberal arts college in the nation I voted Republican for a number of years before changing my registration to "decline to state." I am still a fiscal conservative but Romney's financial plans just do not add up. . Additionally he is a flip flopper which you can't deny.

    Where Romney would take us

    by dwb360 Oct 30, 2012 5:50 PM
    dwb360 dwb360 Oct 30, 2012 6:25 PM Flag

    He will take us in Bush"s footsteps. Wars that are unnecessary and not paid for, less regulation (repeal of Dodd Frank) , etc.

  • Obama’s accomplishments and where Romney would take us.

    Who you vote for as president comes down to which candidate’s plans are credible and whether you believe the candidate will work in the best interest of all Americans. We have listened to both conventions and watched all of the debates and many of their press releases. Here are our conclusions.

    Obama has to a large degree fulfilled the promises that he made prior to for his first term. He ended the war in Iraq, eliminated Osama bin Laden, got a heath care bills passed that ensures that everyone can get insurance even if they have a pre-existing conditions, eliminated don’t ask don’t tell, navigated our country through the worst recession in our lifetime despite obstacles put up by the opposition party, and signed a financial reform bill designed to prevent similar financial meltdowns in the future. He policies also helped save the American automobile industry.

    Did he do everything that he promised? No. He was unable to reduce the deficit, close the prison camp at Guantanamo, increase taxes on those making more than $250,000 or make changes in our countries emigration policy. In many instances his efforts were blocked by Republican filibusters in the Senate.

    While Obama has not laid out a specific agenda for his 2nd term he has pledged not to sign any legislation that retains the Bush tax cuts for those making more than $250,000 per year. He supports spending policies that stimulate new industries, protects our environment, rebuilds our countries infrastructure and improves the education of our children. He believes that a strong middle class is essential to economic growth.

    Romney believes that by further reducing taxes on both individuals and corporations and by cutting regulations hundreds of thousands of new jobs will be created and that the economy will grow. However, he has not provided any details other than to talk about reforming the tax system and not raising taxes on anyone. His economic plan is just not believable. You can’t reduce taxes across the board by 20 %, increase defense spending and balance the budget all at the same time without making major cuts in programs that impact peoples lives and adding to our country’s unemployment. Additionally, he has shown no willingness to compromise on major issues. He has signed the Norquist “no new tax” pledge and promised during the primary that he would reject any deal that reduced spending but raised taxes.

    He is in favor of repealing the “Dodd Frank Act” that was enacted to regulate financial institution and provide financial protection for consumers and the “Affordable Care Act” that grantees insurance to everyone including those with pre-existing conditions. He is also in favor of cutting funding to Planned Parenthood and Public Television.

    On foreign policy Romney appears to be a Hawk in that his advisors served in the Bush administration. He wants to increase defense spending and take a strong position against our adversaries abroad. He believes that respect comes thru strength.

    Now it’s your decision to make.

    Your problem is that you would not no a fact if you saw one.

  • What Romney believes!

    1 Reducing taxes and regulations will create jobs. This was the policy under Bush that took our country from a budget surplus to a budget deficit and failed to sustain a vital growing economy.

    2. Only those individuals currently covered by medical insurance should be covered for pre-existing conditions.

    3. Competition between the insurance companies will reduce medical costs. Isn’t this what we have today for everyone under the age of 65? Have you premiums gone up and health care improved?

    4. The current Social Security system should be changed to allow individuals to invest their retirement funds in the stock market in hopes of getting a higher return. How much money would you have lost if you had sold the stocks in your retirement fund at the bottom of the recession?

    5.You believe that higher income earners (those in the top 10%) should pay taxes at lower rate than Warren Buffet’s secretary or the average wage earner.

    6. Taxes and regulations, not the lack of demand, were the major cause of the recession.

    7. That the banking and financial industry does not need to be regulated. What do you think caused the housing industry to collapse and the banks to need financial aid from the government to survive?

    8. Women should be paid less than men for the same job.

    9. That the United States should increase its military spending even though the U.S.
    already spends more on defense than the next 13 countries with the highest defense budgets.

    10 That companies are people and should be allowed to make unlimited political contributions without disclosure.

    It is your vote. This former Republican is voting for Obama
