Is $VZ stock a buy?

Currently, Verizon Communications stock matches one trading strategy:

ATH buy setup

One of the most recommended trading strategies is to buy on All-time Highs (ATH) breakouts. The good point of buying at all-time highs is that shares price doesn't struggle with upper resistances, and usually it scales fast. However, there's the risk of a bulls trap that may trigger your buy order and then falls sharply. That's why a stop loss is so important. Price is now at 4.30% of all-time highs and it can breakout at any time, so if you want to trade this setup it's recommended to setup your order at $60.64. The stop loss would be ordered at $54.58
