DON'T BUY
It pays a large dividend, so it's attractive to dividend investors. However, the share price has tumbled recently which cancels that out. VZ has some legs in terms of capital, because they're involved in the 5G roll-out, but competition will eat into margins, namely AT&T but they cut their own dividend. In this environment, he passes on dividend payers and buys share-price growers instead.

DON'T BUY
They report Wednesday. He wants to know about new subscriptions. He still won't buy it--just because the stock may have bottomed, doesn't mean it's worth buying. Buy if it goes higher and he doesn't see a catalyst here.

DON'T BUY
Would stay away from traditional telecom companies. This industry was the worst performing sector of all time. There has been a tremendous destruction of profitability in this industry. Terrestrial communication through cable is easier than satellite. Mobile is more part of what people want to do. A completely commoditized product so people are not loyal to companies. Need differentiation. Not high quality companies.

HOLD
Conservative income play. Expects dividend to grow modestly over the next few years. Valuation is fair. Great for cashflow. 5G would be a catalyst, though it will be outpaced by the S&P at this part of the cycle. Dividend is fantastic, at about 4.5%.

DON'T BUY
A slow grower, 3-4% per year projected. Maybe their 5G investments will pay off, but it's risky. Trades at 11x earnings and pays a good 4.5% dividend, so those are pluses. VZ is not on his radar.

DON'T BUY

They report Wednesday. Will this stock ever move up? It's stuck and feels more like a bond, than stock. He expects nothing new. He prefers T-Mobil.

BUY

He prefers T-Mobile and is doing better than Verizon, but he's always recommended Verizon and continues to.

TOP PICK

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly VZ is a defensive stock that pays you to hold it with a great dividend, backed by a payout ratio of only 56%. The company provides internet, cable and phone services -- all of which are deemed essential in today's world. It has already been launching 5G giving it an early advantage over competitors like AT&T. We would buy this with a stop-loss of $51, looking to achieve $67 -- upside of over 17%. Yield 4.37% (Analysts’ price target is $62.06)

BUY
It shouldn't be down. Pays a 4% and offers a good balance sheet. Just reported better-than-expected earnings.

DON'T BUY

Seeking dividends Caveat: You don't get the dividend tax credit as a Canadian investor. For good dividends in Canada: telcos, pipelines, utilities (i.e. Emera, Fortis) and the better investment trusts. He buys a bundle of such dividend payers, but these stocks are still below their February highs, as low as 25%.

telephone utilities
BUY

VZ vs. T Dividend stocks are much more valuable in low interest rate environments. He'd go with Verizon. Do you want to just go for the very high dividend? This could be a red flag. Could be at risk, and wiped out with capital loss on the stock side.

COMMENT

She prefers to own a Canadian telco for dividends, especially as this does not qualify for the Canadian dividend tax credit. She owns BCE instead.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 22/19, Up 2%) A cash flow, dividend name that pays 4.25%. Low beta. Their wireless segment continues to thrive with the largest customer base in the US. $18 billion in free cash flow. A boring, but steady and defensive name.
telephone utilities
BUY

He prefers this to AT&T, because VZ's business model is better--rolling out 5G instead of being a streamer like Netflix and other fierce competitors. Verizon has the legs to expand strongly into 5G. They sold their wireline business three years ago, which was a smart move. They also pay a good dividend.
