  • Windstream Holdings: Making The Right Moves With Growth Efforts [View article]
    Reaffirming one's "neutral stance" on Windstream hardly seems like sufficient cause for anyone even to stir and his chair. This company, which came to me years ago because of a modest position in Lincoln Telecom, has been one of my greatest disappointments in investing. Of course, I hope that will change because, obviously, I was never smart enough to know "when to fold 'em."

  • 3 Reasons CenturyLink's 7% Yield Could Grow [View article]
    Well, yes, of course, the yield will increase just as fast as the share price collapses. Aren't we already at yearly lows?

  • A High-Yield, Low-Price Stock That's Traded In A Tight Range For 5 Years Is Great For My Immediate Income Stream [View article]
    All to true, spparowlake. The liar-in-chief, however, is no longer CEO. She (Maggie Wilderotter [spelling?]) is, however, on the BOD. Some critics have effectively argued that, for some years now, the company has pretty much been run almost exclusively for the benefit of management, which, as you note, has materially profited from how the company has been run--or better, not run. Good luck to all shareholders, including me, who was never smart enough to know "when to fold 'em."

  • NRG Energy Is Ready For A Turnaround [View article]
    Not too many years back, I had shares in a company with this name--NRG something, maybe "Energy." At any rate, it went bankrupt, and I took the loss on my tax return. At any rate, I wonder if this is an iteration of the same company, which has somehow come back from the dead, as it were. If so, I wonder if I should again trust it.

    Sagacious response. I might add that S & P Capital thinks the dividend is safe.

    Publishing an article that stimulates a lot of informed or at least entertaining discussion about investing is a good thing, especially on a day (Father's Day) when we might be inclined to think about something other than money.

  • Frontier receiving rural broadband funds, upgrade from Bernstein [View news story]
    All this good news, and yet the service lowers the target price. Reminds me of a physician's saying, "your health is improving, but I don't expect you to live as long as I supposed earlier."

  • Teradata -4.1%; JMP downgrades on competitive fears [View news story]
    This story recalls the wisdom of Mr. Buffet's advice against investing in technology, for example, there's just too much to know, what needs to be known changes almost daily, and, consequently, the chances of investor mistakes are relatively high.

    What do you think lies ahead for Frontier Communications? (You obviously know a lot about this sector.) Thank you.

    This reminds me of the "strategy" of doubling one's bets after losing at the roulette wheel.

  • Frontier Communications: Bull Case Is Deeply Flawed [View article]
    On a hopeful note, the latest issue of Conrad's Utility Investor opines that Frontier's recent acquisitions increase the likelihood of its maintaining its payout (dividend). It also recommends selling the stock should it reach $10 a share, an event that, in my opinion, isn't even imaginable for the next several years.

  • Teradata Corporation Is A Great Company At A Fair Price [View article]
    My "take" on Teradata: No dividend, poor price performance history, and too many better places to risk one's money.
