Subject:  VZ - hold or sell? Date:  10/10/2013  7:54 PM

Hi everyone,

My wife and I have about $30K worth of VZ which was inherited and sitting in an account at Computershare. It's doubled in value since 2005 as we're reinvesting the dividend, and as between jobs at the time, we're looking at possibly selling this as cashflow for the next few months.

Question is, since it's just been sitting there anyway - is it better to let it set another 15 years until retirement or pull $$ out of a different source, which are:

$180K in mutual funds at Vangard
$150K in HELOC credit at variable which is now 4.25%

Thanks for any advice and perspective!
