Are Frontier's Woes Over?

Shares in rural telecommunications provider Frontier Communications are up more than 10% since reporting a solid quarter last week.

Frontier still poses a number of risks to investors as it continues to manage through acquisition integration challenges, a highly leveraged balance sheet, and declining revenue and customer numbers. In the following video Brenton and Austin discuss Frontier, and reasons to be cautious when considering a potential investment.
