I don't under stand this companies financials and how they are able to pay a dividend of more than they make ... keep up the good work. They are located in Illinois. They have some good accountants in that state, very creative. This company shows strong leadership rewarding the share holders...strong BUY!
Just had my first experience with Consolidated customer disservice today. After being a customer of Surewest and Roseville telly before that for 30 years. Told me I was in a six hour window to get my internet reset and would call me back, No call back had to call them and stay on phone for 45 minutes. Polite people but I think much thinned out since the takeover. Sad to see this happen, moving on.
The quality of customer service at Surewest has deteriorated. They now have an off shore customer support center, and you must ask for a Level 2 technical support person to getting proper technical support. It seems they are trying to cut corners. I've had Surewest for years, but am considering switching because their customer service is so poor. I've also been a long term investor who is seriously considering selling my large position. They seem to have wrecked Surewest, and thus CNSL, with their acquisition.
Institutions getting things ready for taxes on their books. The whole market dropped. They still have paperwork etc. to do before vacations commence. I feel the big reason for the drop. Also tapering may begin earlier.
