TCM is interesting to me. Submarine cable is the only viable way to link continents for the bandwidth demands of today (and tomorrow). However, which telecom companies will thrive in this area is still in question.

Someone will make a killing on submarine cable, just not sure it will be TCM. I'm a TYC long, and always though the submarine cable unit was an appealing part of the company.

The high debt/equity ratio disturbs me. This is a big burden to carry, leaving little margin for error.

Does anyone have a well-condisered view on why TCM is still a buy with this debt load?

Fool On and Happy Thanksgiving!
