Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan give Verizon a lift

Morgan Stanley has resumed coverage on Verizon (VZ +2.8%) with an Overweight and $52 PT, and JPMorgan has added the carrier to its Focus List two days after resuming coverage with an Overweight and $57 PT.

MS' Simon Flannery calls Verizon's valuation "attractive," and likes its mobile competitive positioning. He suggests shares have been pressured by the impact of Vodafone's 1.27B-share distribution following the closing of the Verizon Wireless deal.

    Is Morgan Stanley raising the price target on Verizon because they need to issue debt or shares?

    You would think that the price war on cell plans was over or something.
