    Then, why did Ktumle sell all his shares ? He is one of the biggest proponents of this stock. I think he knows something that most don't. !

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Queenbeetoo ! What is this so called 21st Century telecomm company going to consist of ? What services are they going to provide if land lines are going to be a thing of the past ? Cloud computing ? VOIP? Internet and data? When I see it, that's when I will believe it ! Right now, it's just smoking mirrors !

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Windstream -6.3%; higher costs/spending pressure EPS
    Thursday, May 8, 8:36 AM ET | WIN
    Windstream's (WIN) adjusted free cash flow rose 27% Y/Y in Q1 to $314M, thanks to lower fiber-to-the-tower investments and cash interest payments. But a 6% increase in SG&A spend to $252.2M, and a 1% increase in cost of services to $644.6M (compares with a 2% revenue drop), led net income to fall to $16M from $52.3M, and EPS to miss estimates.
    Like other wireline carriers, local loop disconnections continue to pressure Windstream's top line. Voice lines declined by 19.1K in Q1 to 1.703M, and business customer locations fell by 7.7K to 598K.
    High-speed internet subs fell by 0.5K to 1.17M, carrier special access circuits by 6.7K to 93.4K, and digital TV subs by 3.4K to 398.9K.
    Business service revenue was flat Y/Y at $748M, with higher data service revenue offsetting voice losses. Carrier revenue fell 3% to $162M, consumer revenue 4% to $313M, and wholesale revenue 7% to $142M.
    Windstream is reiterating guidance for -2.5% to +1% 2014 revenue growth, as well as for full-year capex of $800M-$850M and adjusted free cash flow of $775M-$885M. The company's 2014 dividend payout ratio is expected to be within a steep range of 68%-78%
