I emailed investor relations on Dec 15 and again 2 days ago and didn't receive a response to either.
Maybe not a big deal, but in my experience not a good sign. Can't remember contacting investor relations for a company big or small without getting a response, except for companies that were really in trouble.
Since I'm long this slug, have to hope this time is the exception.
You have such good perception, I hereby nominate you to work in their IR dept. I've been long since the the spin-off from VZ, bought more at $5.60 in Nov, as I posted then and more again at $4.80, as I posted, a couple of weeks ago.
So I definitely hope everything works out better than has been discounted by a price of $5. But anyone who can't see that there are significant warning signs here, is either naive or stupid.
I emailed FTR Investor Relations last year -- fall of 2010 -- when there were questions about FTR being late on declaring a dividend. They promptly emailed back and said it was customary to declare it at a meeting coming up -- and so it was. They were prompt and courteous then. But the tone of some inquiries may have gotten negative lately given the slide of the stock -- and volume of investor emails is probably up. I would hope they would reply to a polite email that requested a reply. But they probably s-can aggressive emails.
My tone was was not impolite, nor what I asked much different than queries I've sent other companies that then responded. I think not even acknowledging that I sent 2 now, especially since I ended both of them with "a response would be appreciated", is what's impolite.
If they're too busy or too disinterested to respond to shareholders, makes me wonder what else is falling in a crack. Or maybe they should just fire the IR guy and save the $.
