    $MNGA conversation
    from dr. michael -puke STRONG BUY ALERT quotes ES "we experienced
    a 50% incr in metal cutting fuel rev q2 17 vs q2 16. Sounds impressive.
    But what was the $amt? $40k - $60k? How much, if any was highly touted
    MG. Such is deception of ES. Believes in old military code "don't ask don't
    tell? Then goes on to recite "our Sarasota location blah blah is on pace,
    pace? to generate $1m rev All this in one breath. Then Puke goes on
    quoting ES' s heroic bs. dr puke was totally seduced. Little did he know?

She believes management's updated guidance will provide a catalyst for the shares and the main driver will be AT&T's (T) FirstNet build out along with deployment of its AWS/WCS spectrum.

    Can anyone educate me on how the evolution of 5G will impact AMT? Or are there any other communication technologies in the near future that would utilize and lease antenna space on the existing towers or new towers?

    I just sense there is something coming that I am not aware of and it is justifying the positive run up in this stock. Thanks

    Another reason I'm not a fan of Zacks.
    Headline: "American Tower Touches 52-Week High Amid Multiple Risks

    I read the article and I don't think I read the word "risk" once--what the frank?
    I did read:
    "Taking the stable performance of the stock into consideration, we expect American Tower to scale higher in the coming quarters."
    "competitive edge"
    "We are also impressed with American Tower’s efforts to reward stockholders with a quarterly cash distribution of 64 cents per share on shares of its common stock. The distribution will be paid on Jul 14, 2017 to stockholders of record at the closure of business on Jun 19, 2017." (Yes, they used the wrong tense)
    "We note that earnings estimates for American Tower have exhibited a healthy uptrend."

    So now we are at 145. I know I sound like the proverbial broken record, but I keep trying to get folks onboard. I hope that there are more than 3-4 readers here that are long term holders.

    So here we are at 140. I posted this two month ago and am re-posting it. Everyone hold tight."TJ - I have been posting here since I bought AMT in the teens. The world-wide growth for AMT has been outstanding, and since they switched to REIT status, they have kept their promise of increasing the dividend at an excellent rate every QUARTER. Investors believe that as the demand for broadband continues to grow around the world, AMT will be able to maintain the dividend growth long into the future. Dividend discount models done by analysts keep coming up with higher present values (i.e. the current stock price). I suspect that I will be an owner for many more years."As to the split question: Institutions (who own most of AMT) don't care at all about splits and they are costly to companies. They do NOTHING for you. I now have a ten-bagger on my first of several purchases and have trimmed some in a non-tax account, but I am holding tight on the rest. As that great investment strategist Wayne Gretzky once said: "Skate to where the #$%$ is going, not to where it has been." AMT is where the #$%$ is going.

    The buyouts by big customers should Not slow revenue growth for AMT. Towers are still in demand for all kinds of phone service, cities are growing.

    I looked up facetious. ( a synonym for smart #$%$).. Nothing personal, ,the media has a fetish for the word "pummel" as we have seen. I will look up "rubenesque" , "Remember that term from those personal ads 30 yrs ago?"
