Verizon’s (VZ) crisis could lead to opportunity.

After plunging from about $37 to less than $32, the stock is trying to pivot higher.  Helping, it’s also over-extended on RSI, MACD, and Williams’ %R. The last time VZ got this low was at the start of May before it ran from about $34 to $36.62.  The time before that, it ran from about $35.22 to $38.66.  We believe VZ may be setting up to push higher again from similar conditions.  In fact, we’d like to see it closer to $38.

While the stock fell on news of potential lead contamination, it appears a good chunk of the negativity has already been priced in. Making VZ even more attractive is its current dividend yield of 8.09%. While investors wait for a recovery, they can collect a dividend.
