FTR Update

Frontier Communications Corp. (FTR) continues to hold at the 20-day moving average, $9.26, or above.

The analyst downgrade that prompted the return to bear phase, discussed in this morning's post, isn't all that terrible.

Basically what the S&P Equity Research analyst says is that the stock has hit its valuation target, and so won't be going way higher anytime soon. They don't identify any specific risks going forward -- just the general risks of integrating new markets acquired last summer from Verizon.

Well, OK.

I intend to hold my position over the weekend to see what develops on Monday. A significant break below the 20-day moving average would change my mind, prompting an immediate exit. (The price in the waning minutes of the day has moved down to $9.24, but I think that's just end-of-day trading pressure. It tends to revert upward each time.)
