I am with you, didn't lose as much as you, however, I would not have been in FTR except for the fact that I owned VZ and received shares of FTR two or has it been three years ago. It really looked good then, so like a fool I bought more then subsequently got burned. I also believe that you are much better off with stocks that pay 3.5 to 5.0 percent in divs. To name a few, HIW, T, VZ, MO, SO, ED, TE.
I believe ftr is going to have to do something spectacular in the near future. Too many people have shares riding on this. Remember FTR has a lot of employees too. From what I am hearing they are continuing to stream-line everything. No more open check book. I kinda knew this would be a wait and learn stock. The If the divy would get cut again I will probably be out of ftr. If they turn it around this year or some better signs going forward, I'll stay.
