Verizon And AT&T: One Could Potentially Triple In 5 Years

Jan. 20, 2023 7:15 AM ETAT&T Inc. (T), VZ208 Comments


  • The bond market is certain that a recession is coming in 2023 and 85% of economists and CEOs agree.
  • Historically the S&P should fall about 20% from here, making for a volatile and frightening few months for investors.
  • Low-volatility high-yield telecoms like Verizon and AT&T are a solid choice for such likely market environments. One of these two averages 9% declines in every bear market since 1985.
  • One of these defensive high yielders offers a superior yield, a much safer dividend, a better balance sheet, and a slightly faster growth rate.
  • One is more undervalued and could potentially benefit investors in five years. One is a far better recession buy, that can help you sleep-well-at-night no matter what's coming next for the stock market.
