Especially holders who have owned this stock over 3 years and are still holding. There seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Some analysts rate this stock a BUY. First time in some time now. (Zacks).Others say it is the must have in your long term portfolio. Seeking Alpha is also pumping FTR. Maybe Maggie could learn from her sister over at Campbells Soup on how to run a successful business, many peoples patience have run thin.
Yes, we're still here accumulating the dividends. I posted over on VZ how how my parents bought their house with the dividends from the stock. True story. I guess people don't get it. I am just saying, and I understand Mr. D.'s position in IBM, however I'd "STAY LONG STAY STRONG" LOL.cd. PS. I will help them in any way.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I can relate to your parents. Back in the 70s I bought HBAN. Held it for years re investing all dividends and stock splits than sold it in the 80s and moved to Hawaii. I picked up FTR as a LT investment. She is only a sliver of my portfolio but worth the risk.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Like Reagan said -- here they go again. I went over to the video posted over on SA. The interview with the sister was concerning to say the least. If sisters can't run a phone company, and CPB isn't doing very well either, so how do you fix it? Here's a thought, 1) listen to your employees. 2) Take the salt out of it. 3) Trust your managers 4) Step up results 5) Don't get up on stage and talk about how you don't like your employees because they don't have the FTR network. 6) Trust is shared. Just a thought LOL
Gypgy - Only going to say this once -- It's not always about money. When I am dead you can sit there as as manager and say, SAYYYY ep. When you said you drove Main to your death you can also say you didn't do it. I hope you live with that because of the corp. End of story. true
"I will probably sell when it hits $5 and move on. This stock basically sucks."
Looks like a contridiction. Because "when it hits $5" is a prediction that just doesn't jibe with "This stock basically sucks". Because that would be a 10%+ bump on an already high divvy yield stock so it's a big move -- especially for FTR which has been under $5 for over a year.
I'd suggest a change of expectation -- I'd change to, "If this stock doesn't hit $5 it sucks."
