    9-month cash flow analysis

    Operating cash flow of 4,408.00 easily covered capital expenditures and dividends 2,211.00 + 986.00 = 3,197 leaving cash for stock buy backs of $1,198.00 and debt buybacks of $49. I would say the dividend is well covered here. Need to look elsewhere for the continuing decline in the stock price.

    • Or debt repayment and divs. Plus Savvis is gaining momentum and now with Tier 3 and the move to Seattle for CTL's headquarters the traction should really start to pick up.

    • Thank you for a helpful post. Two areas of discomfort include the dilution of land line customers and the fact that pure earnings do not cover the current dividend. It will be continual management struggle to overcome these conditions.
      Separately, you might look at DNP for preservation of capital, monthly income and a current return of about 8
      percent. We have held DNP for more than 10 years, have found the investment income stable even through 2008/2009. . . for what it's worth.
