I just bought some CTL and like the tone of this article, also will confirmation of the merger/acquisition help the pps?:
"CenturyLink has been falling all year, but now the bulls are stepping in.
optionMONSTER's Heat Seeker tracking system detected the purchase of more than 4,000 July 41 calls on the telecom stock for $1.15 and $1.20. Some 2,300 January 2013 40 calls also changed hands for $3.40. Volume was more than four times the open interest at both strikes."
I'm not sure how you ever call a bottom in a current market but I like a lot of what I'm reading about CTL lately. It was impressive today that several major telecoms were down yet CTL rose. I'm a long time holder of WIN and T, based mostly on the excellent and reliable dividends and management. I'm still new to CTL but this one might be another long hold for me.
