    7% dividend yield (and growing) - you can't go wrong with VZ.
    Holding this stock for almost 8 years now collecting about 60% without any capital gain - even better for tax purposes.

    Merrill price target is 51.

    I'm worried about what Hans and his team have to announce on the upcoming 10/21 earnings call. He's already acknowledged a net drop in wireless subscribers. I get this feeling there's another shoe to drop, so I'm hesitant to buy even at multi-year low share prices.

    I'd like to hear others' considered thoughts.

    If you can't tolerate a big drop in share price of a major American company, you probably shouldn't be investing in the stock market. Someone said 5G won't move the stock: Wrong! It hasn't moved the stock yet because it's not the primary network, but once things start to switch over en masse we'll see Verizon stock revive. I do not have a crystal ball, and anything can happen, with Verizon going down to $15 or up to $60 by January 2024, but I'm in it for the long haul, so who cares if it falls more. I expect the share price to move up soon because nearly everyone has a cell phone/internet today. Verizon is not like Ford, a car company that fell drastically, as plenty of people can use public transport or pool rides. Even if Verizon doesn't return above $50 for three years, I'm fine with that, too, because the dividend keeps coming either way, and even if they reduce the dividend, it'll still be high enough. What's not to like?

    Hans is on track to destroy his 2nd Fortune 500 Company, the first one being Ericsson. Congratulations Hans!

    Remember when people said this was like having a 5% bank account?
  • J
    How low can this stock go? I thought $40 was low!
    Looks like $38 is coming
  • J
    37.70 and then 35 are next lines of support. If that breaks, it's over.

    I don’t get why people ever thought this was a safe haven. Sky high debt. Decelerating rev profits subscribers. Only thing keeping this propped up is divvy.

    $INTC conversation
    6% dividend yield just like $VZ.

    Simple fact in US stock market for last 30 years - when blue chips hit 6-7% yield, we always had a spike in stock market regardless the market condition. Mortgage rate at 8%, bond market at 2% now also will push more fund into the stock market.

    Simple buy and hold will outperform all these exotic cryto scams aka "decentralized ponzi scheme" (by Jamie Dimon).

    Even in times of inflation people need internet and a smartphone provider, right?

    I’m surprised they have money for the disaster relief
