Sold at $5.99 making about $0.45 gain - missed big jump by ONE day. Haven't bought back in as my buy in is $5.50 or lower and it just hasn't gotten down there yet, so now I am waiting until after ex-div to look for a new buy in point.
ribert....Another investor that uses entry and exit triggers. How did you do on the run up to the REIT talk when CTL made FTR run. Stay, hold em,or fold em? I am out right now but I do have a buy order in........ at a price.
Maggie won't post lost lines... Too much to hide. Not forth right and up front with investors. Another reason I am out !!! Make sure you wear a skirt with those pom poms of your Sage...
cd_iso - I agree. I am in both T and VZ along with other good paying dividend stocks. Taking dividends with FTR does create a mess at tax time if you have traded in and out of FTR because of the way you are required to treat the non-dividend (i.e. return on capital) with respect to having to adjust your cost basis. I would rather play FTR for small capital gains (i.e. .50 or more) between ex-div dates. Currently I am out, waiting for a pull back, but rather doubt that we will see that before the next ex-div in early December.
I was with AT&T for over 12 years with Uverse triple bundle ???
Sorry, but Uverse has only been around for six years.
AT&T Inc. announced its plans for a fiber-optic network and Internet Protocol television (IPTV) deployment in 2004 and unveiled the name "U-verse" for the suite of network services on January 6, 2008. Beta testing began in San Antonio, in 2005, and AT&T U-verse was commercially launched June 26, 2006 in San Antonio. On December 22, 2008 the product debuted in Birmingham. Later in 2009 the product launched in Chicago, San Francisco, Hartford, Indianapolis, and other cities in their vicinity. On January 25, 2010, AT&T announced that U-verse was available to over 2.8 million households. Later that year, U-verse was launched in Milwaukee, Dallas, Kansas City, Detroit, Los Angeles, Cleveland, San Diego, Oklahoma City, and Orlando.
FTR is offering $50 credit to affected customers, but it is frustrating for the few of you that there are.
Migrating a million customers onto a new platform has its challenges.
I'm out as well, I did not expect this last lift before EOY, but I'm not a fortune teller. Sold in @ $6.85. bought BABA, AAPL and BBY, all home runs and made more with AAPL in the last Q than FTR the past 4 years. If this one drops back into the 5's again, I'll probably by a couple of K's.
No only 3 since the last sale. Then again you don't seem to count when I sold at the 7.14 on the reit talk 7/29. Then bought back in on the drop and sold then bought and sold two more times, I am out right now. Ya I left some money on the table with the last two triggers. But, I am way a head on those dividends seem to have collected about 9 of them. So how are you doing since the Reit Gift?
I am in Connecticut, I was with AT&T for over 12 years with Uverse triple bundle I never had any problem. Now has becoming an ordeal to deal. What a joke... Trying for 6 days to get my account ID on line, I called 6 times already, beside waiting on the phone for over 25 minutes or more to get a human voice and not that stupid music.... finally when you get someone they switch you to someone else or hang-up and when you get the right person they cannot find a solution. I'm thinking of canceling to another cable or satellite provider.
Longstanding? Well if customers switched over the outages, line loss is even worse Sage... Every single customer is important these days.
