CTL debt service appears to be a weight on its operating flexibility. Its fundamentals don't look all that good.

Terrible customer service, poor internet reliability and bad reviews of PRISM I don't see them expanding without a serious overhaul.

This is a miserable company that I have my land line through. No one likes them. I am paying $82/month for one line, some extras. I believe their subscription level has continued to drop. I took a short on them starting yesterday, average 31.07. Investor's Business Daily rates them a 6 out of a possible 99 on the Composite rating. I understand the debt level is phenomenal. Centurytel management is probably filled with the yes men and have figured out how to put out great PR releases. . . It has gone up lately (now at 31.12) (from the 28's).

Too much debt, not enough income to pay it off
quickly. Watch for a dividen cut in '14.

For long term yield, this one is a sleeper. As they consolidate their holdings (and consolidate their business culture) I expect good things in 3-5 years. In short term compared to S&P not as hot, but that's ok. Long term.

Beaten down after giving a very poor explanation of earnings following the Savvis acquisition. But it's a profitable company and has that huge dividend, which provides some room for error.

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.

I am a new CTL investor since I owned pre-merger Q stock. So far everything is just great! My dividend yield has almost doubled and the stock is up too. What more could you ask for?
