Recently, Verizon's stock (NYSE:VZ) has slumped amidst a series of negative news stories regarding Verizon. These stories do not reflect the long-term potential of the company, and present an attractive entry opportunity.

(Yahoo Finance)

Earnings Miss

Last month, Verizon reported earnings per share of 86 cents compared to estimates of 89 cents. (CFO) Amidst challenges arising from the growth of competitors T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and Sprint (NYSE:S), revenue was down 5.6% in the fourth quarter. However, the company is still committed to long-term growth, with CEO Lowell McAdam saying "We are positioning Verizon for future growth and continued sustainable shareholder value."

Yahoo Acquisition Troubles

After a major breach of 500 million Yahoo accounts last year, investors have called into question Verizon's pending acquisition of Yahoo. (WirelessWeek) The breach, which could have further legal and administrative costs, should negatively impact Yahoo's valuation, investors argue. However, investors again aren't thinking about the long-term - when a content pipeline buys a content distributor, synergies often occur.


Employee Strike

Last year, 39,000 Verizon employees went on strike in one of the biggest US strikes in many years. (Democracy Now) The strike worried investors considerably, as they feared the impact of increased wages on the company's bottom line. News of an agreement, which was finally reached, sent the stock up just 1%. Again, investors are punishing the stock for somewhat insignificant events that grab headlines, but don't have much of an impact on the company's ability to generate cash.


Thinking Long-term

This earnings miss is a short-sighted look at Verizon, which is experiencing short-term pains for long-term gains right now. The company is at the forefront of developing 5G network technology, and has already begun testing it (CNET). This technology is key for a number of reasons:

4K Content

With 4K content finally proliferating, having a fast connection speed on the go is critical. Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) has already rolled out 4K streaming for some of its original programming, and the library will only grow larger. As phone displays increase in resolution, customers will soon want to stream this high-fidelity content, and only 5G technology can accomplish that.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is the next frontier in technology, and it needs a robust network technology to support it. Throughout the world, billions of sensors exist, capturing valuable data. 5G technology allows for the low-power communication of this data, creating vast networks of information which are incredibly valuable to companies.

Despite short-term road bumps which have made investors uneasy, Verizon's long-term dominance in 5G technology is enough to overcome just about any short-term negative catalysts. These negative news stories are mere flashes in the pan, and present attractive opportunities to buy. The average domestic telecom company is trading at 25 times earnings, whereas Verizon is now trading at 14 times earnings, making it a value play based on fundamentals as well as thematics.

But what about the short term? Where will returns come from? If this is you, rest assured knowing Verizon currently pays 4.72% dividend. The stock provides an attractive dividend for yields in the short term, as well as growth prospects through 5G for long-term price appreciation, enough to please any investor.

Disclosure: I/we have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Verizon completes its $4.48 billion acquisition of Yahoo; Marissa Mayer leaves with $23 million
Verizon says it has completed its $4.48 billion acquisition of Yahoo.
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer will resign.
The assets acquired from Yahoo will be combined with AOL brands under a new subsidiary called Oath, headed by former AOL CEO Tim Armstrong.

3 Stocks to Consider Buying Near 52-Week Lows

Shares of Nike, TJX Companies, and Verizon Communications
are trading at some of their lowest prices in a year,
and all three are worth a look for your portfolio.

Tyler Crowe, Travis Hoium, And Rich Duprey (TMFDirtyBird)Jun 19, 2017 at 9:31AM
Want to know what's even more surprising about the broader markets hitting all-time highs? The fact that it achieved this milestone while major industries such as retail, energy, and natural resources are in rough shape. While there's no guarantee that all of these stocks will get back to their former highs, a decent number of companies are trading at or near their 52-week lows and look like compelling investments.

So, we asked three of our contributors to scour the list of stocks trading near their 52-week lows and find ones they consider good investments at today's prices. Here's why they picked Nike (NYSE:NKE), TJX Companies (NYSE:TJX), and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ).

Can Nike Swoosh Past Analysts’ Estimates in Fiscal 4Q17? PART 4 OF 5
Nike Has One of the Best Upsides among Sportswear Stocks

By Sonya Bells Jun 26, 2017 3:26 pm EDT
Stock market performances of sportswear stocks
2017 hasn’t been a great year for sportswear stocks so far. Lululemon Athletica (LULU), Under Armour (UAA), and Columbia Sportswear (COLM) have fallen 29%, 16.5%, and 4.7% year-to-date (or YTD).

The performances of sportswear retailers have been even worse. Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) and Foot Locker (FL) have fallen 27% and 33%, respectively, YTD.

Nike Has One of the Best Upsides among Sportswear Stocks

Interested in COLM? Don't miss the next report.
Currency headwinds, a highly promotional retail environment in North America, and retail bankruptcies have been driving the poor stock performances of these sportswear companies.

Despite ongoing headwinds, Nike has managed to remain in the green. The company has risen 4% YTD. It has, however, underperformed the S&P 500 Consumer Staples Sector Index and the S&P 500 Index, which have risen 7.7% and 9%, respectively, YTD.

The Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLY), which invests 2.7% of its portfolio in Nike, has risen 10% YTD.

Is there more upside to Nike?
Nike is currently trading at $52.85, 14% below its 52-week high price. Wall Street expects its stock price to touch $62.02, indicating an upside of ~17% over the next 12 months. The company’s stock price has been revised downward in the last month. Read more about analysts’ actions on NKE in the next article.

Nike has a better upside compared to Under Armour, Lululemon, and Columbia Sportswear. The stock prices of these companies are expected to rise 1%, 9%, and 13%, respectively, in the next 12 months.

Nike is part of the dividend achievers list, which is made up of 270 companies that have increased their dividends for at least ten consecutive years. Nike, which has increased its dividends for the last 14 years, currently has a dividend payout ratio of 21.5%. The company has a goal of keeping its payout ratio in the 25%–35% range over the next four to five years.

Nike’s dividend yield is currently hovering around 1.4%, compared to Columbia Sportswear’s 1.3% and Foot Locker’s 3.2%. In comparison, Lululemon Athletica and Under Armour don’t pay dividends.

Nike Faces Target Price Cuts ahead of Its Fiscal 4Q17 Results

By Sonya Bells Jun 26, 2017 3:26 pm EDT
Analysts’ ratings and recommendations for Nike
Nike is covered by a total of 35 analysts, who have collectively rated the stock a 2.2 on a scale of 1 (or “strong buy”) to 5 (or “sell”). The company has received 60% “buy” recommendations, 37% “hold” recommendations, and 3% “sell” recommendations.

Nike has a better rating than most sportswear manufacturers. Lululemon Athletica (LULU), Columbia Sportswear (COLM), and Under Armour (UAA) have been rated 2.5, 2.3, and 2.9, respectively. While Columbia Sportswear and Lululemon have received 5% and 9% “sell” recommendations, respectively, Under Armour has ~18% “sell” ratings.

Nike Faces Target Price Cuts ahead of Its Fiscal 4Q17 Results

Interested in COLM? Don't miss the next report.
Sportswear retailers Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) and Foot Locker (FL), however, have ratings of 2.0 and 2.1, respectively. The two companies don’t have any “sell” recommendation yet.

Analysts’ recent actions
A couple of analysts have revised Nike’s price target downward over the last month. On June 22, 2017, Telsey Advisory Group cut its target price on the stock to $62 from $66. On June 20, Cowen and Company lowered its target price to $53 from $54.

On June 16, JPMorgan Chase downgraded Nike to a “neutral” from an “overweight” rating, citing a likely slowdown in sales on account of a mid-single-digit fall in its wholesale business and a loss of shelf space at its major partners.

Analyst Matt Boss wrote in a client note, “Based on our work, we see the N. America top-line picture likely worse before better modeling flat N/A revenues in FY18 (vs. +3% in FY17) driven by a mid-single digit wholesale decline (vs. flat in FY17) given 8-9% exposure to the consolidating brick and mortar landscape (317 distro points lost YTD on our math), shelf space loss at key partners. . . .and [a] multi-year shift from performance to lifestyle elevating the bar for continued International strength (+15% trailing 3-year growth).”

ETF investors seeking to add exposure to NKE can consider the SPDR Consumer Discretionary Select Sector ETF (XLY), which invests 2.7% of its portfolio in NKE.

Caterpillar Shares Have Made a Bizarre Surge to New Highs
Share this Article
Gary Morrow
Jul 14, 2017 4:11 PM EDT

Despite its well-documented challenges this year, Caterpillar's (CAT) stock has been rocking.

Shares of Caterpillar closed Friday hovering around new 2017 highs. The stock's steady climb since the March low, which includes four straight higher monthly lows, has now stretched to a 20% gain. This healthy bull run, despite light volume of late, appears headed for more upside and a retest of a major level near $111.50.

Over the last three weeks, volume has dried up considerably, while Caterpillar has drifted higher. While price action over this time frame remains bullish, this easing momentum may prove to be a warning sign. The stock will likely need a powerful boost in volume to clear the $111.50 area. Back in 2014, the stock left behind a major top here, just before beginning a one-and-a-half year bear cycle. Caterpillar may need a healthy consolidation before successfully clearing this level.

Layoffs At ConocoPhillips In Bartlesville
Posted: Jul 17, 2017 5:57AM CDT
ConocoPhillips is apparently poised for some layoffs at its offices in Bartlesville.

No numbers are being discussed officially, but a company spokesman based in Bartlesville says some jobs are being impacted by an asset sale which was announced earlier this year.

The company announced its quarterly dividend last week and as the end of March it listed a total of approximately 13,100 employees company wide.

Company officials say ConocoPhillips has a long history in Bartlesville and remains committed to the local community.

Verizon Is Ready for a Monster Rally -- Can You Hear $60?
By KEN GOLDBERG Follow | JUL 15, 2017 | 10:00 AM EDT

Stock quotes in this article: VZ
For most investors, the recent drop from Verizon Communications' (VZ) all-time high, near $54, to these low $40s hasn't been fun. Yet, the market's message was so clear up there, according to our DSE (decision support engine), which monitors dozens of objective indicators.

If you weren't able to hear the overbought warnings the market was broadcasting, don't worry. The equal and opposite message is now being broadcast to those that know what to listen for.

Can you hear it now? Let's listen in a language that the market likes to speak to us in: "marketese."

Price has fallen from $54 to this week's low near $42. Members of our live-market Trading Room and DSE Alerts services (Click here to join these services in a free 10-day trial) have been tracking this decline for a year, looking for a set of conditions that cause buy signals to be issued.

Many of those conditions are now in place, rendering an objective, empirically based, buy signal in this low-$40s zone. First, the stochastics that reached above the extreme overbought 90% threshold (sell actions indicated) have receded to the extreme oversold 10% threshold (buy actions indicated). This is also the case at the intermediate-term degree (weekly bars) of trend, as well as the short-term degree (daily bars) of trend.

Next, while price was at the upper two-standard deviation band (olive/gold line), which controls 95% of normality below the band, around $54, they have moved to the lower two-standard deviation band, which controls 95% of normality above the band, around $42.

In addition, the rise since 1996 now has all of the required structural components, based upon 200 years of pattern-recognition correlations, to conclude that the recent decline is over, or nearly so, and that a thrust higher is the highest probability ranked outcome.

If we use some basic guidelines of Fibonacci projections, this coming rise should mimic the rise in the blue box to the 1999 peak -- about 18 points. From this week's low near $42, that portends a test of $60 -- a 43% rally from this level.

Therefore, DSE warns vigorously that this is not the time for selling actions. Rather, if short, use buying actions to cover and take profits, or at least put protective buy stops in place at the $44.50 level. If flat, use this level or any further dip into $41 +/-$2 to begin establishing long exposure. If still long and wrong from the $50s, now is the time to add strongly per these parameters.

Buying actions are now indicated.
