    A TMobile-Sprint merger would be hugely positive for T & VZ. No more suicidal price wars over subs & the cable companies would continue to lose share. 5G will be the inflection point for video-capable broadband. No need for local wifi.

    Buy the telecoms at 52week lows is a no brainer. The div yield is better than a bond, and the news always swings from bad to good. Every dog has it's day, buy when it's down.

    Verizon Wireless plans to disconnect 8,500 rural customers from its network, citing the roaming charges the customers rack up.

    VZ should acquire Hammer Fiber (HMMR) to solve last mile delivery costs to rural areas. Somebody is gonna end up buying them like STRP was

    FIFTY DOLLARS A SHARE

    iS A LOT BETTER THAN $44'S.

    VZ is going to be the low cost wireless provider. It will be able to do big wireless deals. It could do another VZW type deal and Comcast can do the majority funding and VZ developes it so it could be sold as a separate sub (with adjustments) and managed by VZ just like VZW -- another 55% - 45% ownership arrangement. A deal like that could attract an investor who would put in an initial cash investment with a future Capex commitment of $billions per year to build out the 4G/5G network. VZ has lots of options. 5G better work!

    Verizon is telling its fake news service Yahoo Finance, to tell us we should be thankful if we keep Obamacare.
    Verizon , you suck. I have Obamacare, and I pay 960 a month. and you can go to hell for helping make me keep it for next year.
    Actually, I owe you something Verizon. Each and every one of you in management, who is hurting me. You'll' get yours.

    For the majority of VZ investors - As long as DIVIDEND is safe who cares what range VZ trades in?
    Have a few extra bucks - buy on a dip.
    Otherwise hold for the next 2,5,10, 20 or 50 years.

    No improvement since Verizon took over Yahoo ! Filters don't work, Conversations don't work, users are gone.
    I thought once Marissa Meyer went to Pornhub things would improve here but the have not! ... #SAD

    5% dividend, 2.5% margin through IB, plenty of FCF to pay for dividend going forward, and lots of subscribers coming back to Verizon to get 5G and subsidized iPhone X in the next 12-18 months... what's not to like

    As far as who is saying YHOO was a bad investment. You apparently don't know Verizon. They have a 188B market cap for a reason. They bought Bell Atlantic and GTE at a price. .. They now have yhoo which everyone checks their phones 10 times a day and see ads. Maybe they like them, maybe they don't. .. Good?!?!
