"Because of the consistency of the stock over the past year..."
Dude FTR underperformed the NASDAQ and the S & P by 30%.
I guess everything is just because you say so. Forget reality.
Let's post about the stock and not you and your double talk.
"AT&T To Test Next Generation Services in Alamama and Florida
The outcome of AT&T’s experiments may help regulators decide whether or not to allow AT&T and other telecom companies to stop offering traditional wired service, opting instead for new wireless services as more and more customers migrate in that direction.
AT&T has picked two different communities in Alabama and Florida to use as test sites. If the project is approved by the Federal Communications Commission, it will affect thousands of people in rural Carbon Hill, Alabama, and thousands more in the larger community of West Delray Beach, Florida, where many elderly retirees call home; almost a quarter of the population there is older than 65.
The company will begin by asking customers to switch to the new wireless services. If a later version of the project is approved, the company could be allowed to stop offering the traditional wired services altogether.
"We want to make sure our customers are comfortable with the new services,” said Hank Hultquist, AT&T’s vice president federal regulatory said, speaking with Bloomberg"
Times they are a changing....
Well gattorick -- let's break down your post:
"This is what the satellite companies thought too. lmao!"
You say "this". T is using wireless spectrum not a satelitte.
"Copper will never be replaced."
Is Comcast laying copper? Google? T? VZ?
"Its referrred to as brick & mortor structure."
Ever hear of Amazon? (No not the river)
"So did Maggie get a non_compete clause in the CT deal?"
If you are asking if Randal Stevenson has agreed to not install home wireless in CT -- I doubt it. VZ will be doing the same thing so T is not going to sit on the sidelines and see VZ take wireless share while T just sits there. Not to mention S & T-mobile because they may try and do the same thing as well.
"AT&T Inc. (T) proposed offering digital-only telephone service in towns in Alabama and Florida as it moves toward abandoning its aging copper-wire network and escaping the U.S. regulation that goes with it.
The regional experiments, which are subject to approval by regulators, will help them decide whether AT&T and other telephone companies will be allowed to stop offering traditional wired phone service as customers migrate to wireless and Internet-based communications.
More than 70 percent of residential customers in AT&T’s 22-state service area have abandoned traditional wired service, the company said in a filing last year asking the Federal Communications Commission to end rules preventing them from dismantling legacy systems.
“The transition’s happening. What we’ve really got to figure out is, how do we finish it,” Hank Hultquist, AT&T vice president-federal regulatory, said today at a press briefing in Washington.
The experiments will take place in West Delray Beach, Florida, and Carbon Hill, Alabama, AT&T said in a statement"
"Looks to me like FTR is going to break above 5.. soon... and not return below 5 for a long time."
Because you say so?
You were probably too busy to say why.
"I'm just Gypsymann cd, just Gypsymann. Just an old telephone man that worked in 5 states."
I assume you have seen Di Nero in Everybody's Fine...
"Ooopss. Someone just took the bowl back to the kitchen."
"To further spike the punch!"
Look closely, is that a turd floating?
Or maybe chocolate frosting from the cake?
sage might have taken a swig from the punch bowl and some frosting rubbed off his beard.
"After all one could argue FTR is safer than a 10y Treasury note."
A 10y T bond will pay the stated rate until maturity.
FTR has a junk credit rating.
It's as if you are comparing a fish to a BMW.
"Is this guarantee as solid as your guarantee yesterday?"
Nice retort bwarnteun -- terse and snarky yet legal.
I'd keep in mind that owens was a long who felt he got burned by Maggie.
He seems to have some kind of fetish. But he would need to get a professional opion.
So you may want to be more gentle -- if FTR closes above $5 today he could get ugly.
Another day to observe the behavior of Australopithecus aFTRarensis -- aka FTR-MAN or as known on the street "NICKEL-MAN".
This critter is known to jump for joy at a $.05 move -- and if it's red lookout!
