I wouldn't touch this company with a ten foot pole! Its days are numbered, perhaps not soon, but eventually. It pays a nice dividend right now, but that must come to an end eventually. A lot of its business is in landline communications in the western part of the USA, although it is TRYING to get into the internet communications business. Landline business in the Great West is very expensive to own and maintain, due to the distances involved! I give it, maybe, five years before it begins its swoon.
