    CenturyLink's stock extends bounce of 2-decade low after analyst upgrade

    Shares of CenturyLink Inc. rallied 2.6% in morning trade Tuesday, extending their bounce off last week's 22-year closing low, after MoffettNathanson analyst Nick Del Deo upgraded the communications services company, citing a "sufficiently compelling" valuation following the recent price plunge. Del Deo raised his rating to neutral from sell, but cut his target to $12 from $16. The stock had closed Thursday at $12.78, the lowest level since May 1997, after the company slashed its dividend by more than half. "There's a strong argument to be made that CenturyLink is a long term structural short and the stock is likely to grind lower as the 'Corporate Reaper' comes closer: its revenue losses continue apace; those revenue losses will translate into bottom line erosion; realizing anticipated cost savings carries execution risk; and it still carries a significant debt burden," Del Deo wrote in a note to clients. That said, from a risk-reward perspective, we don't see the current price as sufficiently compelling as to continue to warrant a Sell rating, and therefore are upgrading the shares to Neutral." The stock has tumbled 26% over the past three months while the S&P 500 has gained 3.1%.

    CenturyLink Comments On 13D Filing By Southeastern Asset Management, Inc.

    CenturyLink, Inc. always welcomes constructive input from its shareholders.  While we disagree with Southeastern's criticism of our recently announced capital allocation policy, we are engaged in discussions with Southeastern regarding their suggested director nominees.  While any potential director needs to be vetted through the Board's formal review process, it is our expectation that Southeastern will nominate a high caliber candidate whom we will ultimately be able to nominate to the CenturyLink Board of Directors.  Of note, CenturyLink's Board of Directors is composed of 13 highly-qualified directors, 10 of whom are independent and five of whom have joined in the last two years. While the Board is always open to evaluating suggestions for improved capital allocation and value creation, it is important to note that the Board unanimously supports our strategic plan to accelerate our delivering of the Company's leverage ratio to a range of 2.75x to 3.25x in approximately three years, while continuing to fund our growth and transformation initiatives and returning more than $1 billion of dividends annually to shareholders.

    CenturyLink stock rebounds after company slashes dividend in half

    Shares of CenturyLink rebounded Friday, two days after the company announced it was cutting the annual shareholder dividend in half, causing its stock to drop to lows it hasn’t experienced in nearly 22 years. CenturyLink stock (NYSE: CTL) dropped 12 percent on Thursday, a day after company executives slashed the dividend from $2.16 per share to $1. CEO Jeff Storey said on the call that the dividend cut is “not based upon any concern for the outlook of the business,” but instead is focused on debt reduction.
