Verizon announces dividend


MONEY!Verizon Wireless has announced today that they’ll be shelling out 43 cents per share on November 1st., up 2.5 cents last quarter. This is kind of funny, considering some Vodafone shareholders wanted to drop Verizon so they could get more dividends. Irony’s a drag, ain’t it, ECS? This is the first time Verizon’s increased their dividends since March 2005, so no doubt their 2.5 million-odd shareholders will be pretty happy about the news.
