Company Profile

Exchange: NYSE
Sector: Technology

CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) is a leading provider of communications, high-speed Internet, and entertainment services in small-to-mid-size cities in the U.S. through its broadband and fiber transport networks. It has strategic partnerships with Verizon and DIRECTV. The company was founded in 1968 and is based in Monroe, Louisiana. CenturyLink is affected largely by general economic conditions, along with changing technological trends. As well, regulatory pressure on state and federal levels can have an impact on CenturyLink’s business. CenturyLink has been paying dividends since 1990, and has increased them consistently, except for one cut in 1998, until 2013, when it cut them to $0.54 per quarter. They have remained stable since then. CenturyLink pays its dividend quarterly.
