+ Watch VZ
on My Watchlist
A leading communications provider, Verizon offers wireless service and telecom for home and business.
Punch #15 – Verizon (VZ)I'll keep this one short and sweet. VZ is the dominant player in two "essential" industries with very little competition, basically sharing duopolies with T and CMCSA.I think VZ future cash flows are almost certain to increase materially over the next decade or longer, and that VZ is selling cheaply in relation to those future cash flows.
For creating the spinning tool of the Devil, underperform for the life of the paid watcher.
While Verizon is currently the leader, and increasing it's customer base, there is a definite limit to their capability. Most of the industry is moving to lower service prices, while VZ is stubbornly holding onto it's overcharging. Furthermore, threats from companies such as Google, who are developing internet services, hold a lot of ground against the current leaders.

Bought shares of VZ today.
VZ is just a solid, well-run company. No, they aren't likely to grow much, but they have been making good choices for many years and have the best cellular network in the country, all under their ownership and control now. Beyond that, they understand wireless, and where it is going with respect to cable. There is room for growth here without sacrificing returns. Solid dividend stock that isn't going downhill any time soon!
Hiking interest rates, and making a stronger dollar, makes the safe dividends worth even more. T too
Got my stock from Vodafone. High Yield Div (4% plus) and market dominance means I am happy to stay.
Trying something new: picking companies with high customer satisfaction rankings as recorded by various polls/reports.
Market leading position in US mobile telephony. Digesting 45% of Verizon Wireless not already owned.Paying down debt and focusing on rolling out increased 4G Coverage, means that over the next 2 to 3 years it will throw of prodigious quantities of cash as it pays down the debt.
