OT: How low can WorldCom stock go?

  • From: Rowland, Alan D
  • Date: Tue Jun 25 20:29:44 2002

I keep waiting for someone to ask the FTC, SEC, etc., exactly what they've
been doing with their budgets for the past decade or so. Doesn't seem like
anyone has been minding the store except members of congress collecting
money from business interests with little, if any, attention to public
interest.

Enron was the number one contributor in the energy sector. Any bets on
WorldCom in the telecom sector?

If shareholders ever look up from the short-term bottom line they might
notice the horses are long gone from the barns.

I am pretty sure a 5 quarter restatement will reduce its chances of future
respectability.

Worldcom stands a chance of making money in the future, Adelphia has
absolutely NO chance of ever regaining any sort of respectability.

After all Wcom owns UUnet...they own the fat pipes..

Adelphia cries when it has to purchase a few T3's cause their cablemodem
system is clogged...
