Verizon will outperform the market for the simple reason it's been beaten down too much the last couple of years. I like telecom stocks with low P/E ratios. I tend to be contrarian in nature and while the S&P 500 was up over 20% in 2017 VZ… More

Its a solid dividend payer, but 4+% is a bit steep in an increasingly competitive market, and with an increasingly impatient customer base that can jump to another carrier pretty easily.

I think the stock will go up, but will ultimately not beat the market. Looking at the last 5-10 years, its grown, but not keeping pace with the S&P.

An oligopoly position in 5G should bolster its history of both dividend increases and stock price growth.
