+ Watch VZ
on My Watchlist
A leading communications provider, Verizon offers wireless service and telecom for home and business.
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.
reasonable growth in eps in flat economy
Beginning start price $51.08
Div. (Yield) $2.12 (4.2%)Current Yield . . . . . . 4.6%
Berkshire likes it. Mega likes it. I like it.
leading company in the leading sector of the economy right now
Buffet and dividends
low p/e high div not going away any time soon makes it an easy buy n hold pick simply long term value play
Technology savvy company
infrastructure stock with good div. Should be able to make money and survive next "big dip". If the market still exists VZ should too.Biggest challenge - gov't.
With full ownership of Verizon Wireless (the best network), most of their pension shortfall resolved, and positive operating leverage, Verizon should be able to grow earnings 10-15% a year over the next few years and also increase the dividend. It also helps that Sprint and T-Mobile are still ineffectual competitors. (Sprint's "Framily" ad campaign is a massive "frailure".)The legacy business is more than made up for by FiOS growing revenues 20% a year and growing margins. In a decade or two (once streaming demand catches up with the technology) FTTH economics will become as attractive as cable companies.
Solid company, great service, steady earning growth despite being off from analysts expectations. Now is a good time to get into this stock for a long term position.
CLASS LEADER BIG MOAT
Div. (Yield) $2.12 (4.4%)
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.
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.
