The Company's operating subsidiaries provide local telephone, cable, Internet access, interexchange facilities, cellular and PCS services, along with many other associated services. " (2/9/2017)

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "SHEN has traded down 37% since peak last year, we believe due to temporarily weak NTLS subscriber metrics post acquisition and acquisition-related accounting confusion. We believe the worst of the integration is behind SHEN. Shares trade at a significant discount to the low end of our SOTP valuation, and we think provide an attractive entry point ahead of positive catalysts. Led by a strong mgmt team, SHEN should benefit from improving organic performance, accretive wireless, and possible cable acquisitions." (2/3/2017)
