Thank god shareholders don't run day to day operations!
There are loads of short sighted things investors will do to make a buck.. but if you bought share in January 2006, your up about $6, they sky is NOT falling for Verizon. Delaying deployment of the network and holding true to stories of REDLINING, false starts in deployments, arguing with franchises over petty issues, and screwing up in NOT offering reasonable upgrades/improvements in service are a good recipe for failure of the company, and lastly if you didn't already know, when a corporation as large as Verizon files for bankruptcy the whining little girl shareholders get NOTHING for their trouble, not a rusty red cent!!!!!!!!!!!!! Psst! Overspending on WIRELESS is also not a good idea, jackasses!
Let me say this again NOT A FRIGGEN RUSTY RED CENT!!!!!
SO TAKE THAT TO YOUR PORTFOLIO AND SMOKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, that being said, they wanna whine and complain, go ahead, on investor blogs, keep out of BBR, or reap our wrath!
Want to ride the portfolio rapids, might I suggest day trading in Haliburton, ExxonMobile, Geico Insurance, Banks, GoldFutures, Sony Corporation, Microsoft, Google, etc, etc, etc. Telcos are (supposed to be)regular revenue streams, not bullies scaring people with world politics, the ability to gas up your car, or prevent someone who rearends your lexus from OWNING you like a slave.
