+ Watch VZ
on My Watchlist
A leading communications provider, Verizon offers wireless service and telecom for home and business.
Verzion has worked hard to get the market share of wireless users and I see no end in sight. They are a marketing machine with the capital to back it up. They have designed a system that lures customers in with a quality system and then over time has steadily raised the cost to the consumer.
Solid management. Great cash flow. I expect some value addition and good dividends.
Largest number of cellphone users and largest coverage are in the United States. And most people I talk with that use the service think it is the best.
The P/E ratio is just too high. Verizon is in a saturated market, even with improved income from data.
going with a cramer hunch
Because it's better than AT&T (despite AT&T's cute commercials) - just the facts, fool (my opinion)
This account is an experiment to see if good customer service reviews on www.yelp.com for public companies which have locations in or near Vista, California (my hometown) will lead to market-trouncing results. Any business that gets a 2.6-5 star rating will get a green thumb, and any business that gets a 0-2.5 rating will get a red thumb. For businesses with multiple locations in Vista, I will take the average of all of those location’s ratings. This isn’t intended to be exhaustive…I’ll probably only rate 100 tickers at absolute max – this is simply intended to be an experiment. It’s a flawed one, I know, but hey I might as well have some fun here. :)Currently, the 10 Verizon Stores in and around Vista have an average 2.7 star rating on Yelp, thus this company gets a green thumb.
We just completed our transition to T-mobile and we couldn't be happier. saving $60/month, every has "unlimited "data on their phones, and cell service seems to be identical as before with VZ.Shorting VZ and T based on expectation of losing customers over the coming year as contracts start expiring.
Best wireless carrier should have improving profits after they repurchase Vodafone's stake.
Their recuperating customers lost to cable companies.
real $$$ play
I started my position on VZ 2 1/2 years ago it has outperformed the S&P 500 and delivered relatively high dividends. I also acquired AT&T at the same time and although it has performed well VZ has done better. I am not a customer of either company.
This stock can last forever. It can support my portfolio much. By this, my whole portfolio will outperform the S&P.
Most Americans have cell phones and see their bills as a monthly necessity. Verizon is the biggest carrier in this "must have" industry. Steady profits will be the norm for years to come.
Greedy company, limiting/controlling customers, and manipulating smaller competition. Income has been falling for the past 5 years. Expenditures not slowing down. Won't ever been an innovator and in turn will fall. Nothing but a big'ol bully. I'm going to Sprint.
Strong dividend, growth and security.
good customer service, better coverage, consumer reports loves their service
The King of Wireless. Everyone else's days are numbered
