Here is my 30 second rant against Charter. I have never, ever seen customer service as bad as this company. And I have had Verizon, Chase Bank and Comcast before!!! If you don't want people to be cord cutters, maybe try to be a little more accommodating and flexible. I have wasted so much of my life trying to fix the service from these guys, and basically gave up that they would EVER make things right. I dropped Charter and picked up the Dish and am LOADS happier. Great customer service, and the repair technicians actually come out when you call.

To rub salt in the wound, Charter refused to negotiate, even after threatening to drop their service. When I dropped them, they ran me through a series of salespeople to try to "save" my business. I told them over and over, "too late, you guys really suck." The lesson here? If you run a business that generates revenue which relies heavily on retention, WORK with your customers EARLY and don't wait until they are so fed up, that there's nothing you could EVER offer to make them want to keep the service.

I don't care if Warren Buffet buys the entire company, I would never invest in a company that treats their customers this poorly. Lost a customer. For LIFE.

I'm just an amateur at this, but I just don't see how CHTR is paying the bills. All of their stats are pretty anemic, yet the stock keeps going up and up? I don't get it.

Consolidation is going to benefit CHTR with or without Time Warner.

Don't understand this stock. IMO this company has too much debt and continues to be unprofitable. Not sure what Buffet or other investors are thinking. The Kicker is the stock acts as though it has a protective moat that is impenetrable. For those people I offer two words, Google Fiber.

Quoting Liberty Media SEC filing: "In April 2014, Charter announced it had reached a series of agreements with Comcast through which: (1) Charter will acquire cable systems serving approximately 1.5 million existing Time Warner Cable residential and commercial video subscribers for approximately $7.8 billion; (2) Charter and Comcast will execute a tax-efficient asset transfer of cable systems serving approximately 1.5 - 1.6 million residential and commercial video subscribers; and (3) Comcast will spin-off cable systems that serve approximately 2.5 million residential and commercial video subscribers into a new publicly traded entity. Charter will own a 33% stake in the new entity and provide it ongoing management services. In aggregate, these transactions would make Charter the second-largest cable company in the U.S., owning or managing cable systems serving 8.3 million residential and commercial video subscribers."

Google will expand their services. Their quality, pricing, and customer support will nudge out comcast and Charter.

Charter has become the best internet provider in Northern Nevada. Customer service and price on the Charter bundle is competitive

This company seems to me very overvalued. It's price/book is sky high and has been increasing. It's forward P/E is very high as well. It has massive debt/share and is currently losing money.

On top of that wired phone is nearly dead and the monopoly on TV service delivery will die to internet based services. That leaves them with high speed internet, but there's mounting pressure on that too from nonwired sources.
