Frontier and Windstream Find New Revenue Drivers to Keep Dividends Safe

The Bedford Report Provides Investment Research on Frontier Communications and Windstream

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - With the markets in the midst of a correction, investors are looking for safe havens. High yielding dividend plays traditionally get attention during hectic times in the market as investors are more likely to believe in the company's security and real earnings power. One of the more popular dividend plays is via companies in the telecom sector due to the steady revenues most telecoms earn. Even during the recession, while many companies cut their dividend payments, most telecoms did not. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Telecom sector and provides equity research on Frontier Communications, Inc. (NYSE: FTR) and Windstream Corporation (NASDAQ: WIN).

Most companies in the telecom industry are seeing a secular shift away from wire-line communications. While this does not necessarily pertain to internet access, consumers are looking to their mobile phones as their primary connection as opposed to old fashioned "wall connections."

The drop in home phone line demand has prompted many diversified telecoms to adopt new business models. For instance, Windstream Corporation has been working to transition its business more towards broadband in hopes of cashing in on the growing levels of mobile data consumption.
