24 Stocks Posting Returns And Earnings Growth Of More Than 30%

Trefis Team , Contributor

 

Verizon, the largest U.S. wireless carrier, has been performingwell over the last few quarters, driven by its unlimited data plans, which have allowed it to post strong postpaid phone net additions.

In this note, we take a look at our expectations for the company’s various business segments over 2018, and some of the factors that are driving our $52 price estimate.
