Rhetoric, sorry I must be an analyst or work for CNBC or a writer for Forbes!! hahahahah!! Actually I want to make sure those guys aren't revered like the guys at AIG or Citi or GM. They should have been wiped from this Earth as they have wiped others in their wake...anyways.
"Over 80% of AMT’s Intangible assets are lumped into the category of “Customer Relationships” and “Acquired Network Location” for reporting purposes. Most of these assets are determined by AMT to have a useful life of up to 20 years (or as long as the underlying land lease). This type of accounting is not too distant from the “Mark to Market” (and its analog Mark-to-Model, and the fictitous Mark-to-Makebelieve) accounting used by financial firms and others such as Enron with such disastrous consequences over the past decade"
"You hurt your own case by inflated rhetoric." hahahah!! You go ahead and invest in a company where the insiders have sold over 70% of their holdings. Lets see if you can find this guy on the boards in 6 mos?
I am not trying to make a case just trying to find out why anyone is actually purchasing this at the moment and why any one would suggest that it is a great buy at this pps?
I have owned AMT since single digits. I have gone to annual meetings. I read the Wall St. research.
If the predictions of a first year dividend of .80-.90 this year and then 9-10% annual increases come true, it is my belief that AMT will serious outperform the U.S. market in the next few years, unless we get a level of recovery going that I certainly can't see right now.
