What are analysts saying about Frontier Communications Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Frontier Communications Corporation stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We modestly reduce 4Q revenue and EBITDA, largely driven by a lower FiOS broadband net add outlook. Despite tempering our outlook, we anticipate improving trends in CTF markets. Significant attention will be paid to 2017 FCF (and implied EBITDA) guidance, where Street expectations are low. Should management stick to the $4+bn adj. EBITDA outlook (established in Aug.), we see a favorable setup, with ample dividend support either way." (2/17/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "We are impressed with Frontier Communications’ focus to rake in more profits through customer retention, market share gain, new product introductions, broadband expansion and improved sales and marketing initiatives. The company is trying to derive benefits from the growing Business Service Segment. As a part of its marketing plans, the company launched its first retail outlet in Southern California. Purchase of Verizon’s wireline assets in California, Florida and Texas although bodes well for the company as it has expanded Frontier Communications’ landline business, broadband, video, voice and FiOS services in the three states but reports about outages, bad telephone service and problems with billing has sprouted. The company continues to suffer from the loss of legacy fixed telephony business to wireless and decline in access lines and wireless backhaul revenues due to customer migration to Ethernet solutions at lower price points" (10/24/2016)
