Posted this three weeks ago and no Pollyanna's stepped up to make a case to buy/hold Toll.
Hmm....must be the red hot economy.
If this story is correct, then there will be another 100,000+ people out of work.
Kmart employees believe the company is nearing bankruptcy and is in the process of shutting down all its stores.
The chain has closed one-third of its stores in the last decade, and sales have been cut in half in the same time period.
Store-level employees who spoke to Business Insider said many of the remaining 941 Kmart stores now appear to be in the midst of liquidation.
Stores are being entered into numbered phases — such as Phase 1 and Phase 2 — employees said.
The company has told employees that the phases are part of a "P2P" or "path to profitability" strategy to make stores more profitable.
But employees say it's a liquidation plan, with each phase triggering different cost-cutting measures such as layoffs and labor-hour reductions.
Frontier has been very aggressive in fixing problems and that's probably enough to stop any major erosion in its newly acquired user base. It's not all that easy to switch cable and internet providers so most people will not do so simply because there were some hiccups.
That means that there should not be any major surprises when Frontier reports on August 1.
PPG just announced the sale of their plate glass operations to a Mexican company in favor to their faster growing paint and coatings businesses, ending 100+ years in the glass industry.
Still obsessing over line run off?

Buy FTR, sit back, and collect one of the highest yields in the market.
Wow....and to think the FTR bashers want us all to believe all others are perfect...lol
There are several components that make up the trust...so yes, from time to time SOME FTR gets sold. I have been consistent on this point, though you make it appear that I don't
The Pittsburgh-based paint and coatings maker announced Monday that it will unload $1.6 billion in pension obligations it owes to about 13,400 current U.S. salaried and non-union hourly retirees by purchasing group annuity contracts from Massachusetts Mutual Life and MetLife.
The $1.6 billion represents about 30 percent of the $5.3 billion in pension obligations PPG had on its books at the end of last year. Spokesman Mark Silvey said about 15,000 participants will remain in the company’s U.S. pensions plans once the transaction is completed, which is ex

Houston has been decimated by the drop in oil prices.
It kills me how people think everything is OK.
Came home yesterday and my wife told me the neighbor's across the street just moved out. They lived there for maybe 12 years. The wife was played off from Nextel in 2010 and never found similar employment. Rumor was they hadn't paid on their mortgage since then. They didn't say goodbye to any of us. Just left. Now we get to wonder how long their zombie mortgage will sit. Sigh.
Periodically some has been sold to fund college expenses and other important family needs, but seldom.
Also, portion of dividends are classified as return of capital.
Each dollar of FTR dividends you have reinvested has compounded your losses by adding principal all the way down until today.
Losses are only realized when shares are sold, so not really sure what you are implying. My cost basis is less than $2/share at this point, and your weak analysis does not factor yield into the results. Several splits in past decades has resulted in a lowered cost basis.
It's all cash rolling in at this point.
