Verizon Communications (VZ) was formed in July of 2000 when Bell Atlantic and GTE merged.  Before the merger, the company traded under Bell Atlantic (BEL).  Also, in January of 2006 MCI was merged into Verizon (VZ).  The overall return of Verizon for the past 30 years has been relatively poor in comparison to some of the other companies featured in the Stock Performance Guide.  However, a $5,000 investment, in the company that would eventually become Verizon, in 1985 would have grown to over $103,000 by the end of 2016.
*In November of 2006, Idearc, Inc. (IAR) was spun off VZ shares
**Verizon shareholders received 1 share of IAR for every 20 shares of VZ they owned

*In March 2008, part of Verizon was spun off into Spinco and then Fairpoint Communications (FRP)
**Verizon shareholders received 1 share of FRP for every 53.0245 shares of VZ they owned

However, currently neither spinoff adds much value to the overall return of Verizon stock so they are not included in the overall Verizon returns.

*In 2010 Frontier Communications was spun off.  Verizon shareholders received 1 share of (FTR) for each 4.165977 shares of (VZ).  This spinoffs adds about $1,827 and $484 to the 1985 and 1990 investment respectively.  The value added to the 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010 are approximately $425, $147, $182, and $173 respectively.
