Underperform
Frontier Communications downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst David Barden downgraded Frontier Communications to Underperform and slashed its price target to $4 from $19 due to dividend concerns. Barden said Frontier is evaluating the dividend quarter to quarter, while trying to reduce net leverage, and cannot assume with certainty that the dividends will get paid.

Overweight
Morgan Stanley says CenturyLink can outperform after industry's challenging 2017
Noting that 2017 was a challenging year for wireline telecom and that CenturyLink struggled to hit guidance for the third consecutive year, Simon Flannery still believes that the Level 3 merger is transformative and contends that CenturyLink's (CTL) valuation should ultimately diverge from legacy wireline peers such as Frontier (FTR) and Windstream (WIN) if the deal proves successful. If 2017 marks the trough in operational performance, CenturyLink is poised to outperform "meaningfully" next year and beyond, said Flannery, who trimmed his price target on the stock to $21.60 from $26 but maintains an Overweight rating on the shares.
