Verizon delivers strong Q3 results

with 3 comments

Verizon today announced its Q3 results and they are looking good with strong growth in wireless division. VZ announced a 59¢ diluted EPS for Q3 from 44¢ diluted EPS in Q3, 2007. Its revenue grew 5.4% YoY. Wireless business saw the strongest growth, with 1.5 million new retail customers increasing the total customer base to 70.8 million. Its total wireless revenue was $12.7 billion of which data services accounted for $2.8 billion.  VZ also reported lowest churn numbers with 1.33% total churn, while its ARPU climbed to $52.18 a month.

However, the biggest worry for VZ continues to be its debt which increased to $44 billion. It is at more than half of its market capitalization of $77 billion. Like its other telecom bretheren, it too suffers from up-front investment costs which are necessary to stay competitive. VZ continues to invest in wireless technologies and has also sped up its FiOS roll out to counter the 12% decline in its traditional wireline customer base.
