Just opened a long position in VZ. I think the $42 price we saw was the bottom. Nice dividend and a good outlook ahead thanks to being the first to roll out 5G.
july 4th celebration came a little late at vz. this patience will pay off for sure. hold long and strong. forward pe 11 of vz. it should be at least double of that. reality will catch up.
Is the earnings date really October I thought they were reporting next week?
BUY AND ENJOY 5.3% DIVIDEND. it is more than 5 yr trailing avg dividend of VZ.
y is the up?. Long on this one!
bought yesterday. was feeling the vibe
Well. Added some more shares today. Hard to pass up the dividend.
Just a thought exercise: in the time period from 2012 to now, would Verizon's performance had just been better if they hadn't purchased: Telematics firms, Vodaphone's stake in Cellco, AOL, Yahoo. Could they have just made a case that they would utilize their economies of scale to sell bandwidth at better prices than their competition, and pay a safe, healthy dividend to their shareholders as a low-risk, low-reward investment.
As a heavily indebted, riskier investment, it's not like the stock has stellar returns over the past five years. It wants to frame itself as a competitor to Google, but I'd frankly just buy Google if I wanted to make that type of investment. I see absolutely no competitive or comparative advantage it has over Google, and if I wanted those kind of risks in my portfolio, I'd take them.
I come to the yahoo message boards for the sharing of ideas, and having informative news stories along the right side. For some reason, Verizon seems to think that Business Insider is somehow in the business of giving us valuable information. They are not. Verizon, everyone thinks your news sources are a joke. Its too bad you didn't improve that after buying yahoo.
Has every one read the post by 'The Street' in which they predict that VZ is ready for a huge surge? I note that the stock is 'edging' up last three-four trading days. Hope is eternal!!
Most Reliable and Best Service in the Business. Verizon, Sprint service is going down fast. The Last 2 months my service with Sprint has drastically gone down. So sold my Shares of Sprint. Bought VZ , next back to VZ service.
Can you hear me now! !
leasing their cellular network to their competition then not adjusting prices to compete, just painful, been with them from day one. CEO got to go, imho
Verizon playing the T-Mobile/Sprint game vs Comcast and Direct TV with their Fios service by offering up to $500 early termination fees to switch as they build out the Fios network........Proves that with VZ wireless dominant network doesn't have to give away the farm for customers!
hey! bottoms up horay horay
2nd day in a row going up! start of something good I hope :)
I'm selfishly focused on the dividend. If it's safe, I can live w/ ups & downs.
