Eric Brandt: certainly not opposed to something that creates value for our shareholders
Eric Brandt - Chief Financial Officer
Yes, and I would say look we understand that and I think that’s why I said I think it’s an important year to prove that we can deliver on the mobile strategy. In terms of spinning out broadband or infrastructure or those sorts of things, it’s hard to say that they create a whole lot of value. I don’t really know. I do think that there is lot of shared technology and a lot of the secret sauce exists in central engineering. I mean a lot of that sort of is partition between wired and wireless and there is analog that everybody uses. But I don’t know, we are not -- certainly not opposed to something that creates value for our shareholders.
Joe Moore - Morgan Stanley
And the push we get on the some of the parts is that mobile and wireless will -- could lose money I mean and you are trending -- operating margins are trending low single digits now.
In terms of how we feel about the stock price and the issuance of equity, we are very focused on it. I think we’ve probably designed a compensation system more towards the momentum based industry and probably not as much around sort of capital return and TSR. And we will add TSR this year to our performance metrics and the way we measure ourselves as a management team.
If he did it's working and up we go! Don't miss out or get hurt being short this one. The company and stock already proved that it is "real" and very little fins are being paid out. What more proof do you need that the company is on the "up and up"...LOL
this avoiding towns and sensitive area's will work real well with the ND railroad tracks layed in the late 1880's. The towns East of the Mississippi had rail before the Civil war .. The towns and cities grew up around the rail tracks, and the builders decided to put up bridges over rivers instead of diverting the water..
More audits will take care of the problem..
Discussing absolutely baseless buyout possibilities is a waste of time and energy. I see this on every board and find it quite useless. You have a better chance of picking out buyout stocks through blindfolded dart throws.
