+ Watch VZ
on My Watchlist
A leading communications provider, Verizon offers wireless service and telecom for home and business.
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!
everyone is addicted to mobile
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.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
PE 10.6 & ylkld 4.4%
another Mega Cap similar to MCD pitch.... ROE noted....market share....FCF...I had this equity as an underperform for a long time....thought the market would outperform it by a long shot...surprisingly it held its own.....closed the pick with a slight positive score...
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.

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.
