Verizon is reporting that its second-quarter earnings nearly doubled after securing full ownership of Verizon Wireless.

Profit jumped to $4.32 billion from $2.25 billion, or 78 cents per share. Net income per share grew, but at a lower rate, to $1.01 per share from 78 cents per share. That's because Verizon issued shares in February to pay Vodafone shareholders for their share of Verizon Wireless.
