Dividends4Life: Dividend Investing: Here's Why Verizon Is Better Than AT&T

Life would be simple for AT&T (NYSE: T ) investors if Verizon (NYSE: VZ ) didn't exist. For years, the two companies have gone head-to-head over landline and wireless customers. Now that Verizon wholly owns Verizon Wireless, the competition is sure to be even fiercer. But, the good news for AT&T is the company is improving. The bad news, however, is Verizon may still be the better option.

In the battle for wireless supremacy, AT&T always seems to be playing second fiddle to Verizon. In the current quarter, AT&T managed to match Verizon in a few ways, but Big Red still holds the lead. The bottom line is, AT&T is doing OK, and in some respects has improved its operations. The big problem is, Verizon is doing better by several measures. Long-term income investors should favor the stronger-performing Verizon over AT&T's slightly higher dividend at this time.
