Vodafone (VOD) – Buy This Undervalued Dividend Stock VOD is a high quality company that pays in dividends Apr 8, 2015, 10:12 am EDT | By John Kilhefner, InvestorPlace Contributor
Vodafone (VOD) – Buy This Undervalued Dividend Stock Vodafone Group Plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VOD) completed the sale of its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless to Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) a little more than a year ago now, and VOD stock has been in a slow slide ever since.
