Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

After selling much of its ILEC business, Lumen may be able to return to sales growth over the next few years rather than face perpetual decline.

Bears

Lumen is in a death spiral, and its dangerous financial position will make it impossible for the stock to recover even if business improves.

Company Profile

With 450,000 route miles of fiber, Lumen Technologies is one of the United States’ largest telecommunications carriers serving global enterprises. Its merger with Level 3 in 2017 and divestiture of much of its incumbent local exchange carrier, or ILEC, business in 2022 has shifted the company’s operations away from its legacy consumer business and toward enterprises (now nearly 80% of revenue). Lumen offers businesses a full menu of communications services, providing colocation and data center services, data transportation, and end-user phone and internet service. On the consumer side, Lumen provides broadband and phone service across 37 states, where it has 4.5 million broadband customers.
