+ Watch VZ
on My Watchlist
A leading communications provider, Verizon offers wireless service and telecom for home and business.
Div. (Yield) $2.12 (4.4%)
Cheap exposure to smart phones. Strong revenues improving dividends.
I'm only holding because of the dividend; and, perhaps once the Vodaphone divestiture is history...VZ can focus on increasing equity value....or substantially increasing dividends.
with acquisition of VZ wireless completed, will be able to leverage best asset in the world to continued steady growth.
Verizon is a great one to buy and hold; I've been watching this ticket for years. Steady growth, solid dividends, but will not be the 300 lb fish you write home about.
They are the top dog and will be so for the next 3 years at least.
I just can't stay away. The low 12x P/E ratio, the P/FCF ratio that's nearly half that, and the generous 4.6% dividend yield all tell me this one is a great stock to own.
This company is needed so that is a good sign. Bought out Vodafone.
Great dividend with improved earnings and stock price in not too distant future.
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.
