The rising market has lifted this stock, but CCI looks like the weakest wireless play out there: stalled revenue growth over last four quarters, share dilution, $11 billion debt. For good reasons, Schwab currently rates this in the bottom 1% of all stocks.

More Smartphones = more needed bandwidth = more repeaters = more towers = growth for CCi.

Hi debt, barely if at all profitable, and v high P/B.
Sure, we need more cell-phone towers, but where's the barrier to entry that would justify this kind of valuation on far-future projections?

LT Debt is high, but they have no maturities until 2014 and have locked in favorable rates via swaps on the floating. In addition, they have almost $1B in cash on-hand.
CCI operates like a REIT, so ability of the company to increase operating income during the previous 2 years is impressive.

Overvalued, too little tangible value on the balance sheet.

The last time that I checked, this company was still losing a lot of money, had a sky-high, forward PE ratio of 266, a huge debt load of $6.54 B, and net tangible assets of negative $1.5 B. Miraculously, the stock has increased over 3-fold since November, 2008. Sooner or later, it has to come back down to earth and reality.

Well there's this thing called earnings, and they ain't got it. Also to be more formal I think that a lot of the anticipated demand for additional bandwidth due to new 3G phones and more data intensive applications, isn't going to arrive as quickly as expected. I'm basing that off of the belief that teenage employment is going to get weaker as more and more adults take jobs that were once the primary domain of teenagers. Also many college graduates aren't going to be able to find good jobs as quickly as expected and many will have to make cutbacks is nonessential areas like deluxe cell phone plans.

Crown Castle has a downloadable to cell phone TV offering which should ramp nicely based upon similar services elsewhere around the globe and this will add nicely to their revenue growth.

CCI has begun a project to shore up its real estate holdings. With enough manpower, they should be able to increase land held in fee and push back the overall lease horizon by decades. Combined with the recent acquisition of Global Signal and the development of Modeo (which is wireless television), as well as the booming wireless market, there is nowhere for this company and its stock to go but up.
