In early 2019, CenturyLink -- now known as Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) -- slashed its quarterly dividend by 54%, from $0.54 per share to $0.25 per share. Lumen stock has lost more than a quarter of its value since the dividend cut was announced. Despite this rocky history, Lumen still has a very high dividend yield.
Three that our Fool.com contributors think are buys before the start of 2021 are Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA), Broadcom (NASDAQ: AVGO), and Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN). Shares currently provide an annual yield of 1.8%, but the shareholder payout ate up only 30% of the company's free cash flow generation (revenue minus cash operating and capital expenses) through the first nine months of 2020.
It’s a mixed start to the day for the majors. Failure to move through the pivot levels would bring support levels into play.
