Abstract

Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) operates the largest wireless and second largest wireline telecom networks in the United States. These two segments focus on providing communication, information, and entertainment to consumers, businesses, and government agencies. Verizon is based out of New York, New York and was incorporated in 2000.

Through both, qualitative and quantitative analysis, this report contains detailed information regarding the industry in which Verizon Communications competes, the market and sector it functions through, and the current growth structure it holds. A detailed valuation model from historical data, market statistics, and pro forma forecasts is attached. From this valuation model, the calculated stock value as of November 30, 2018 was USD 58.64. Per quantitative valuation, Verizon's stock price is fair to undervalued. Taking into consideration all the parts of the analysis, I initiate a hold recommendation for the common stock of Verizon Communications.
