    Verizon Comm., Inc. (VZ) -- Bi-Monthly Update

    I just completed my weekly study of all my High Profile Telecom / Fixed Line Telecom. This is a study that pleases me to do because I have spent so much time and experience in the study of Companies like (VZ). Each time, it is like visiting with an old and dear friend.

    My objective is to identify changing trends for my Forecasting Analytics. Simple stated, I want to have current notes to quickly refer to on the anticipated direction of this Sector and Industry Group.

    A Special Note for Seniors & Retired Investors - Dividend Yield: 4.36%

    I believe you folks deserve much better service and investment direction and guidance that either Wall Street or the Brokerage Community is / has been providing. Being a retired Asset Manager / Financial Analyst is a joy for me to assist you and meet your investment - needs, goals and objective. Peace of Mind for you is my mission. Let me know when I can offer you support. Perhaps reading my support article will be of interest.

    Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:

    Verizon Comm., Inc. and other Utility / Telecom Companies are tracking well. Although (VZ) is in a strong Rally it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics.

    My Forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon request).

    My Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.

    If you own or are considering owning Telecom Companies, the securities are definitely a mixed bag. Verizon Comm., Inc. is currently strong Technically but I have reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, there I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."

    Fundamentally, my Valuations remains relatively strong but are "Flat" and on the Decline. That produces future declining valuation projections.

    Technically, my Indicators are clearly breaking down. The current mini pull-back since April at about $53 to a current price of $47 is serious - this time and offer strong support for my Bearish "Warning." A re-bound rally is in the making and will occur - - the strength of which will be very important as to when I will advise Clients to "Take Profits - and - move to Holding-Cash."

    I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (VZ) !

    Selectivity

    "Selectivity" is what I preach and is what separates the Average Investor and Mutual Funds from the profits that come with long-hours / hard work and "Selectivity." You might like to read my most-recent article on why I believe Selectivity is so critical for profiting in today's Marketplace.
