What are analysts saying about Shenandoah Telecommunications Company stock?

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shenandoah Telecommunications Company is a holding company which provides a broad range of telecommunications services through its operating subsidiaries. The Company's operating subsidiaries provide local telephone, cable, Internet access, interexchange facilities, cellular and PCS services, along with many other associated services. " (5/11/2017)
  • 2. 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)
