  • Windstream Holdings' (WIN) CEO Tony Thomas on Q4 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    There the long transcript (above), then there's today's stock price of a little over $8 a share. I think the share price pretty well sums up both Windstream's current condition and dismal prospects.

  • BTIG moves Sprint to Sell, 'tired of waiting' on Softbank [View news story]
    No news here. Sprint has been a "sell" for the past ten years or so.

  • Old Republic declares $0.185 dividend [View news story]
    No complaints here. The management of Old Republic is as good as gold. It (management) kept faith with shareholders all through the Great Recession, somehow managing not only to maintain the dividend (while many other companies slashed theirs) but to raise it (if very modestly), thus preserving the Company's exalted status as a "Dividend Aristocrat": 34 consecutive years of dividend raises. . .and counting!

    —Third of four generations proudly "long" on Old Republic International.

  • Frontier Communications misses by $0.01, misses on revenue [View news story]
    Is this really bad news or only moderately bad news? I can guess it isn't good news--missing expectations is never good news. Still, it seems that a +12.7% (annual) increase in revenue can't be all that bad.

  • Oppenheimer: Sprint will be forced to make sales [View news story]
    My plan doesn't have as many "bullets" (small black dots). I was thinking that members of the management team, past and present, might fall on their own swords to expiate for bringing shareholders to ruin.

  • CenturyLink's Solid 5.5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    And yet the price is collapsing today in the wake of a downgrade to sell by (I think) Goldman Sacks.

  • What Do 1,750 New Stores Mean For Sprint? [View article]
    "In other words, this move was not wise for Sprint or its shareholders."

    Well, yes, the move isn't at all prudent. Sprint has done very little over the past decade plus that has proved "wise" for itself "or its shareholders." The only shoe left to drop is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. But I would love to be 100% dead wrong.

  • 3 Trends To Watch In Frontier Communication's Upcoming Earnings Release [View article]
    A very good point. Thank you.

    The S&P report to which I was referring was provided by, on a complimentary basis, Scottrade, and the name does include "Capital IQ," just as you note. It was the writer or writers of this report that had a positive view of the FTR's proposed acquisition of AT&T's assets.

    I'm guessing that you disagree, and for good cause. The aforesaid report also dropped its recommendation on FTR from "buy" on "hold" (I think on "valuation," meaning that the price had already increased to a previously announced buy target, or something like that).
