Rusin Skewers the Street

July 31st, 2008 by · Leave a Comment

Over on Telecom Straight Shooter, Dave Rusin has a fantastic post about how little Wall Street understands the telecom business.  I’d call it a rant if his aim weren’t so deadly accurate, it is very much worth reading  His sentiment echos some I have received on this blog from readers, such as Anthony’s comment today:  many of the depressing macro trends we hear about – gas prices rising, companies looking to cut spending – they tend to benefit telecom, not hurt it.

And lately I’ve been looking for effects of the macro environment on the telecom business, and I have not been finding anything negative at all.  Is it time for the market to wake up to the fact that telecom – both equipment and bandwidth – are the real deal?  It has taken a very long time to clean up after the bubble, but that cleanup is basically done.  The industry is healthy and looking toward a long period of growth – no wild assumptions seem to be required.
