      DividendInvestor newsletter and also our director of equity-income strategy. He recently sold AT&T (T) and purchased Verizon (VZ) in his model portfolio. We're going to talk about why he made that swap. Josh, thanks for joining me. Josh Peters: Good to be here, Jeremy. Glaser: So, you recently made this change between AT&T and Verizon, which at a high level are very, very similar businesses. What prompted you to go ahead and make this move? Peters: It started, really, with my dissatisfaction with AT&T , which has been swelling and compounding over the years. It's tough to own a stock for four years, as I did with AT&T , and feel like you've never been happy with a single decision that the company made. I remember, not long after I first bought the stock, they went after T-Mobile (TMUS) and that ended with a gigantic breakup fee that they paid plus some spectrum to T-Mobile. And where is T-Mobile now? It's their biggest, keenest competitor, trying to take market share away and, frankly, causing them some problems in the industry. I don't know that AT&T can be blamed entirely for that, but it certainly didn't help to help finance one of your smaller competitors that way. And
      message that finally sank in over a series of years was that AT&T wants to do, it seems, everything except focus on its core business and just be content with paying a large and rising
      the highest-yielding sector of the S&P 500 index, by virtue of Verizon, AT&T , CenturyLink (CTL), and some of these other names having really high dividend yields. So, on one level, you could think, for income investors, is telecom just too big to ignore? Do I need to have a stake there? The answer to that question is no. You do not need to own telecom if you are an income investor. Utilities would be very hard not to own at least some of, but telecom isn't an industry you need to have an exposure to. And what I did is, in selling AT&T as well as another foreign telecom stock that I owned, I actually increased my exposure to the sector. I put more cash in than I raised by selling these other two names in order to fund a purchase of Verizon--because Verizon stacks up pretty well, not just as a telecom stock but as a high-yield stock in any industry. And the contrast with AT&T is really strong in that AT&T has leveraged its balance sheet to go off and try to make all sorts of different acquisitions, really broadening and diluting its
