Number One "Dog of the Dow" in 2017, with a 4.5% forward dividend yield. Verizon is the top US mobile carrier, with about a 20% lead in subscribers over AT&T. Should benefit from lower corporate tax rates. Has a new 5-year deal to stream NFL games on smart phones, tablets, and on any of its websites, including its recently acquired Yahoo. This deal is especially favorable to Verizon, because it includes the rights to show every in-market game, including playoffs and Super Bowl; no other company has the rights to all of the games. It remains to be seen what other content they license to fill their planned video channels. It's been reported that the carrier may be planning an 'over the top' content offering, and it's also working on a connected home product, a platform for residential customers to help managed things like smart lights, heating and alarm systems.

Verizon faces major challenges to its business model. It's not going to tank, but it's going to suffer.
