What are analysts saying about Windstream Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Windstream Holdings stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Windstream reported mixed financial results for the first quarter of 2016. The company incurred a narrower-than-expected loss in the quarter, while revenues lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Windstream is well positioned for long-term growth based on its investments in fiber-to-the tower and broadband networks and proper cost management. We expect the company to record solid results at the enterprise segment on the back of robust solutions and a customized approach. However, Windstream’s position in the Ethernet market is discouraging and putting the company far behind its rivals. Moreover, despite management’s efforts to modify its financial profile, concerns regarding Windstream’s highly leveraged balance sheet persist." (5/9/2016)

  • Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "We believe this should provide some comfort to CSAL investors who may have been concerned about Windstream’s credit position, and ability to continue to fund their $650m annual lease payments to CSAL. CSAL’s yield remains attractive – CSAL’s equity has rallied +19% YTD in sympathy with the telecom sector as well as reflecting some progress on diversification with the PEG broadband deal, which will account for about 10% of revenues. The company also recently announced a small $3m tower deal with Windstream, which is consistent with its growth strategy. Despite the rally in CSAL’s stock, it still yields nearly 11%, well north of Windstream’s ~8% yield, yet CSAL’s dividend is effectively senior to Windstream’s as it is primarily funded from the Windstream operating lease. CSAL’s yield appears to track closer to Windstream’s unsecured debt, the 2023 notes yield about 12% to maturity, for example." (4/1/2016)
