earnings conference call Thursday. Level 3 had a very good quarter with lots of good things happening, including lots of solid integration of disparate deals put together to extend the terrific franchise that is going to be THE on-line video company.

Of course, the losses are substantial. No kidding. That was forecast. But what's missing is that the interest rate environment is so good that Level 3 can refinance almost everything that it can and fix this balance sheet in a form that will change everything for the better.

The deals this company made have turned it into a telephone powerhouse that will generate giant cash flow. I don't think it will have to lay out a lot of capital because most of the properties it has are fresh.

I'd use this dip to get in. This is the kind of story that's not stopping here, even as traders and less knowledgeable people bolted before the darned conference call!
