Wall Street expects a year-over-year decline in earnings on lower revenues when Consolidated Communications (CNSL) reports results for the quarter ended December 2018. The earnings report, which is expected to be released on February 21, 2019, might help the stock move higher if these key numbers are better than expectations.

For the past half-decade, a controversial yardstick called the CAPE has been flashing red, warning that stock prices are extremely rich, and vulnerable to a sharp correction. And over the same period, the Wall Street bulls and a number of academics led by Jeremy Siegel of the Wharton School, have been claiming that CAPE is a kind of fun house mirror that makes reasonable valuations appear grotesquely stretched. CAPE, an acronym “Cyclically-adjusted price-to-earnings ratio,” was developed by economist Robert Shiller of Yale to correct for a flaw in judging where stock prices stand on the continuum from dirt cheap to highly expensive based on the current P/E ratio.

In the financial community, this has been a topic of an ongoing debate between estate planning attorneys and financial advisors.
