Business Telecom Provider PAETEC Remains Attractive to VE Models

  Today, we re-iterate our buy call on PAETEC Holding Corp (NASDAQ:PAET).  The company continues to display extremely promising short and long-term forecast figures, favorable valuation, and a high overall composite score.  The company is down slightly since we first mentioned it in our bulletin on September 7th, but recent market trends show an increased call volume for the stock.  

  ValuEngine has issued a BUY recommendation for PAETEC HOLDING. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that PAETEC HOLDING has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE 5-year annualized return, market valuation and price/sales ratio.

  The question for PAETEC and other telecom providers concerns employment trends and business hiring.  Because companies such as PAETEC are dependent on business growth, uncertainty about the economy may hinder their growth despite the favorable fundamentals.

  PAETEC HOLDING, through its subsidiaries, provides integrated communications services to business and institutional customers primarily in the United States. The company offers network services, including local telephone services and domestic and international long distance services; and data services comprising broadband Internet access services and virtual private network services, as well as related services, which include Internet Protocol (NYSE:IP) traffic classification, network storage, PC back-up, and virtual NXX services.  The company was founded in 1998 and is headquartered in Fairport, New York.
