Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ): Pimco and Blackrock (NYSE:BLK) collectively picked up more than 25 percent of Verizon’s enormous $49 billion bond sale Wednesday, which allowed the carrier to bring in the money all at once, rather than in pieces, as it had originally planned. Pimco took in $8 billion in bonds and BlackRock walked away with $5 billion; Seeking Alpha notes the two companies were also influential in persuading Verizon to price the debt at an above-market rate.
