That piece basically ignores the AT&T deal, and I think it was written before earnings.

Frontier jumped nearly 11% yesterday on nearly quadruple volume--with a small earnings beat and decent guidance. At current share price (which should drop a bit), it still pays a 7.8% dividend.

I have more than enough of the stock, which has treated me very well in less than a year. But FWIW, I think Frontier is turning the corner and the AT&T deal will be a strong plus.

I do note that the COO has just been named to the FTR Board, which could mean that Maggie Wilderotter is preparing an internal succession. I think she's been a great CEO, undistracted by all the noise, with a long-term turnaround plan that seems to be bearing fruit. Would miss her--but would also trust her judgment on an internal successor.

JMHO, of course.
