  • Windstream Q3 Profits Fall 10% as Traditional Phone Customers Dwindle

    Telecom 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.
