WIN Company Profile
Windstream Corporation (WIN), also known as Windstream Communications, is a provider of advanced communication and technology services to businesses across the United States. Some services provided are broadband, virtual servers, managed firewall, data storage, and cloud-based voice systems. Founded in 2006 and based out of Little Rock, Arkansas, the company also provides residential broadband, voice, and video services to consumers in rural areas in its coverage zone. Windstream has suffered in recent years from losses in consumer voice lines, amid competition from cable companies, wireless carriers, and providers using other emerging technologies. Windstream's dividend has not changed since 2007, and the company has paid out $1.00 annually. Windstream's main revenues today are driven from demand for business communication services as well as data center services. Windstream's current payout ratio is 333%, and it does not appear to have a sustainable dividend.

Windstream Q3 Profits Fall 10% as Traditional Phone Customers DwindleNov 7, 2008Telecom provider Windstream Corporation reported its third quarter results early Friday, saying that profits fell 10% from the year-ago period. The company's EPS numbers came in at 25 cents per share, a penny shy of analysts' estimates. Windstream's revenue also declined 3% to $794.1 million, below expectations of $802 million. The company's traditional phone line subscriptions are down 4.8% from last year, now sitting at 3.08 million access lines. This decline was partially offset by a 16% jump in high-speed Internet subscribers. The Bottom Line We removed WIN from our "Recommended" dividend stocks list on Aug. 21, when shares were trading at $12.03. The stock currently has about a 12% dividend yield, based on last night's closing price of $7.88. Windstream stock is down about 35% in past year, which is largely in line with the S&P average. The stock hit all-time lows in late October, so there is not much support underneath the current trading price. Windstream's dividend yield is intriguing, but the share price and revenue numbers need to stabilize before we will consider an upgrade. The stock is fairly valued at around 10 times next year's estimates, but its dividend may not be sustainable with revenues and profits continuing to drop. Windstream Corporation (WIN) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
