My biggest worry is that although they are paying a fat dividend, they are simultaneously reporting substantial losses.

Hi Koakat,

ALSK reported 2005 earnings loss of $1.04/share, but S&P is estimating a positive $0.35/ for 2006! They have finished the CDMA buildout between Anchorage and Fairbanks, with towers to Denali Park. So looks like the huge construction expenses are ending. With the CDMA, any cell phone can call anywhere thru ALSK's system. Just in time for tourist season!!
