Verizon Communications (VZ-N) is a multinational telecommunications conglomerate headquartered in New York City. The stock has experienced ups and downs but has shown recent strength, with stabilizing interest rates contributing to its recovery. Despite concerns about debt, good treasury management and stable demand for telecom services make it a potentially attractive investment. However, competition in the US telco market and pressure to reduce prices pose challenges for the company.

BUY
Secure US yield play.

Yield is around 6.5%, typically lower beta. Were having a rough time, but recently moved above the 200-day MA. A lot of this is due to stabilizing interest rates.

PARTIAL BUY

Recent share price has been strong due to overselling after the pandemic. Lots of debt a concern for investors. Could be a good time for investors. Good treasury management has resulting in good debt load execution. Telecom demand not going away, however investors must weight against other options in the market.

WEAK BUY

Telecom sector's had a bounce, along with infrastructure. He's very keen on infrastructure. Likes it better than BCE, as US companies have a bit more in terms of growth possibilities. Not a bad decision to own it. US telco playing field is more competitive than Canada's.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 25/23, Up 5.5%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

Our PAST TOP PICK with VZ is progressing well.  To remain disciplined, we recommend trailing up the stop (from $33) to $36 at this time.

BUY

Telco. companies not performing as well as expected. With pause in interest rate hikes, could be a good time to buy. Owns shares in company. Stable business with excellent dividend. Will continue to hold.

Unspecified

The price historically has been flat and the average price target is about $40 - the price is now around $38. The dividend yield is about 7% but is not eligible for the dividend tax credit since it is a U.S. stock. If you buy, it should only be for a registered account. Canadian Telecoms have done better than ones in Europe but have been under some pressure to reduce their prices.

BUY

This and AT&T have been hit hard from the anti-dividend stock trend, but also have huge upside if interest rates decline. Are not undervalued and, yes, carry a lot of debt. Yes, there are cable-cutters, but people still watch live sports and that won't vanish.  Is oversold.

COMMENT

Pays a 8.37% dividend. He targets $39.80, 27% upside. It's seen a waterfall of decline in the past year. This will fall to $27, book value, first and that's when he will consider it.

HOLD

They may report positively next week. The dividend is safe. They're laying off staff and cutting or halting 5G capex spending.

DON'T BUY

The chart has broken down. If it consolidates and moves up, then that's a different story. Otherwise, don't buy.

Verizon Communications Inc., commonly known as Verizon, is a multinational telecommunications conglomerate and a corporate component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The company is headquartered at 1095 Avenue of the Americas in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, but is incorporated in Delaware. Social media mentions are up 1025% in the past 24h.

HOLD
Investments have lost money.

T-Mobile has taken all the growth in the industry, eating the lunches of AT&T and VZ. AT&T and VZ carry fairly large debt loads. He'd argue the bad news is already baked in. Lead in cables is a red herring, not a reason to sell. Canadian telcos might be more attractive.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jun 02/23, Down 29%)

All telecoms under pressure with rising rates. Still a good, defensive stock. Good cashflow. Largest wireless carrier in the US. Predictable, recurring revenue. Beat Q2 expectations. Dividend sustainable. Yield almost 8%.

telephone utilities
DON'T BUY

Has neither growth nor a dividend.

telephone utilities
DON'T BUY

Not a favourite. Revenue per share is down, yet still spends $20B a year on capital expansion. Not getting much for their money. Low marks on growth, and that ends the discussion for him. Hefty and unhealthy dividend yield of 7%.
