  • Cox sues AT&T, claiming three patents infringed [View news story]
    AT&T invented Multiplexing back in the 50's. They also developed Lightguide to where it is today. If it weren't for AT&T and Verizon, T mobile the un-carrier would be out of business as they would only have cell sites just as a reminder.

  • Molycorp's $560 Million Intangible Assets Are Worthless [View article]
    What would happen if the Defense Department gets wise and stockpiles these rare earths in the event China boycotts selling them? Would this benefit MCP as they are basically the only rare earth provider in the USA? I think MCP is worth
    a lot more then you think.

  • Molycorp rocked again, -18% as J.P. Morgan piles on with downgrade [View news story]
    I'm beginning to believe that I invested in a rock mine. (well I did) They could probably make more money selling crushed rock. I am about to throw in the towel now.
    Sorry guys, this company is not going to make any profit soon. I been waiting 3 years now and keep hearing each quarter the excuses and how they will improve.
    Everything they say is forward looking.

  • AT&T -3.3% post-earnings; reactions to wireless numbers mixed [View news story]
    I think that AT&T rebuilt T-Mobile with that cancellation fee incurred. Again, without Verizon and AT&T leasing line capacity, T-Mobile would be nothing. It
    harkens back to the days when MCI built itself on the back of AT&T, leasing prime routes between major cities.

  • Frontier flies higher as Street cheers subscriber, margin imporvement [View news story]
    The officers of FTR are over-compensated for what they achieve in performance for this company. The recent filings showed they as a group received over $10 Million in shares total. Well, they beat by only $21 Million. The board needs to reign in this over compensation in my opinion.

  • Report: Top 50 polluters emit 75% of greenhouse gases [View news story]
    AT&T has been converting all their vehicles to CNG so this article is misconstruing the facts. I know that they have a lot of vehicles on the road at any given time but their carbon footprint is decreasing with each one converted. How about mentioning this in your article next time?

  • "We believe AT&T (T) is overpaying for Leap’s (LEAP) spectrum," says BMO's Kevin Manning, expressing a common view. He estimates AT&T is paying $5.25B for Leap after factoring debt and lease obligations, or $2.31/MHz/POP. That's well above the prices attached to recent spectrum deals (I, II), something attributed to a desire to keep Leap out of T-Mobile's (TMUS) hands. Much of Leap's spectrum resides in the AWS band, where T-Mobile has a huge presence. Though few analysts expect a higher bid, Leap closed 13% above AT&T's offer price, in part due to expected spectrum proceeds. One unanswered question: What will happen to AT&T's AIO prepaid brand, given the carrier's plans to support Leap's Cricket brand? (AT&T/Leap: I, II[View news story]
    Would like to know who it was that made over $1 Million trading in
    options on Leap before the disclosure of this deal.

  • More on Frontier: Residential customers fell by 28K Q/Q to 2.86M; business customers fell by 5K to 281K. Total customer loss down from 50K in Q4 and 73K a year ago. 28K broadband net adds, 18K video adds. Business ARPU +4% Y/Y to $644, residential ARPU +2% to $59. Q1 capex was $189M, -9% Y/Y. Local/local distance revenue -9% Y/Y due to continued voice sub losses; data/Internet service revenue +2%; switched access/subsidy -9%. Thanks to free cash flow decline, dividend payout ratio was 48%, up from Q4's 45% and Q1 2012's 39%. FTR +0.2% AH. (PR[View news story]
    I think all Telco's are losing landline customers as most are migrating to Cell Phones but, when Frontier is gaining Broadband and video subscribers in the thousands this will offset those losses on the
    landline side. If they will just engineer in additional fiber cable then they can gain more and more customers for their High Speed Internet services. This is where the money is with local subscribers.
