••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Verizon Communications Inc is a provider of communications, information and entertainment products and services to consumers, businesses and governmental agencies. It offers voice, data and video services and solutions to wireless and wireline networks.

Verizon provides communications services to consumers, businesses, and governmental agencies via two segments: wireless and wireline. Verizon Wireless is the largest carrier in the United States, serving approximately 114 million retail wireless connections and focusing on high-value postpaid customers. The wireline segment is undergoing asset optimization, with the divestitures of select fixed-line operations and data centers and the acquisition of other fiber assets.

Guru Investment Theses on Verizon Communications Inc

Bernard Horn Comments on Verizon Communications - Apr 21, 2017

Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) missed fourth quarter earnings estimates, as it added significantly fewer mobile subscribers, even after heavy price cuts and promotions. The company is slated to adopt unlimited data plans to meet competitive threats, which may further erode margins in the near-term. To reinvigorate business, Verizon approached Liberty Media about a merger with Liberty’s Charter Communications, which would create a behemoth with the biggest wireless and internet subscriber base, as well as the third largest television customer base.

From Bernard Horn (Trades, Portfolio)'s Polaris Global Fund first quarter 2017 shareholder letter.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Verizon Communications Inc. - Nov 02, 2016

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) (1.0%) (VZ $51.98 NYSE) is one of the world’s leading telecommunications services companies. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Verizon Wireless, is the largest mobile operator in the United States with over 113 million retail customers. On April 1, 2016, Verizon announced completion of the sale of its wireline assets in California, Florida, and Texas to Frontier Communications. The transaction is valued at approximately $10.5 billion (or approximately $7.5 billion net of taxes) and concentrates Verizon’s landline operations in contiguous Northeast markets. On July 25, 2016, building on its previous acquisition of AOL and launch of Go90 (mobile-first OTT video service), Verizon announced that it will acquire Yahoo! Inc.’s (0.4%) operating business for approximately $4.8 billion in cash. The deal is expected to close in 1Q’17. Verizon expects the acquisition of Yahoo’s operating business to accelerate its revenue stream in digital advertising and put the company in a highly competitive position as a “top global mobile media company.” This transaction significantly expands the scale of the company’s online content business and should allow VZ to leverage its ad-tech platform across a larger content portfolio and user base. In addition, Verizon expects that combining Yahoo with AOL will result in meaningful cost synergies.
