CAPS tossed this one up to me as a personalized stock pick. I'm tossing it back. The dividend is the only thing this stock has going for it. It won't keep it above the S&P. It rarely has been. The recent bounce back up to $28 should be a blessing to anyone looking to get out. Phone service, expansion in Europe, Kenya, wifi infrastructure, etc, might not make this a bad play, but 185,000 employees mostly in Europe with a high tax basis will not leave room for growth. Thinning the work force in Europe in a depressed economy is not an easy option. Workers have more clout than anywhere else on earth. Nice buy for the dividend, but I'll put my cash elsewhere.
