    Why stock price drop in last week.

    There is speculation in the market that the land line companies will continue to lose their customers to cable companies and wireless companies....while that holds credence in the cities, it is not the issue with the rural phone companies....the last two quarterly reports that WIN reported has shown this to be the case and on their conference calls they reiterated the same...Pat Dorsey at Morningstar indicated months ago that he was skeptical as to wether or not they can continue paying out the dividends over the next five quarters...WIN has reported higher than expected earnings the last two quarters and is also paying down debt...this is not a trading is a long term investment that pays a very good dividend { which is also qualified for tax purposes at 15% } and is basing at this level considering all that is going on in the market...This is a great stock IMHO for conservative investors and those who want something long term for retirement prospects....One more note, Scott from Bulls and Bears on FOX recommended the stock as well.....
