Stock Buy $VZ

Verizon Company LogoAnother opportunity presented itself this month and I’ve decided to snatch up some additional shares of Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) into my portfolio. The primary reason that compelled this purchase to me is because the company is being offered at great valuations and very near its 52 week lows. Also, I always wanted to equal out the ownership stake with (T) as these two oligopolies combine a great one two punches in my portfolio and the domination of the industry itself.

    Nice Buy. We own shares in VZ and the dividends have been very stable and dependable. At near 52-week lows, it’s looking very attractive these days. I would like to see it near $46 but under $50 is still a good value.

    Thanks for sharing. AFFJ

      Thanks, I thought so myself, so I will pat myself on the back. 🙂

      At $46 would be even bigger steal, though I really doubt it will go that low, if anything it will only go up especially with their new acquisition of Yahoo coming soon to a close.

      Either way, gotta make that capital work so I don’t have to.

      Good hearing from you, I hope all is well.
