We should also use multiple websites like Finbox and SimplyWalls to get a more accurate “Fair Value” and do a comparison with companies in the same industry.This being said, I made a comparison with AT&T, Shenandoah Telecommunications Company, Vodafone Group Plc, T-Mobile Us, Inc and Telephone and Data Systems Inc., and this was the outcome:

Now we just need to compare the “Fair Value” from different sources and see if it makes sense to invest now. Finbox says that the “Fair Value” for Verizon is  80.37$ and SimplyWalls says that it is 86$. My calculation was 75$. The current price of Verizon Communications is 57.59$, meaning that if it reaches the 76$ mark there is a valorization of 31%, adding to the 4.36% dividend yield. In my opinion it is a good buy right now.
