Re: Really Mr. Moffett?

I disagree. Wireless is growing and has been for a few years. iPhones sell like hotcakes and other smartphone usage (and the extra revenue) has grown exponentially in the last year or two with no signs of slowing for the next couple of years. Once LTE is deployed, who cares about minutes and SMS...the carriers will be metering your bits, not the minutes.

Stemming churn is not growth. Just because VZ isn't losing as many customers, doesn't mean the investment in FiOS is generating revenue at the expected rate.

All companies are TOO short sighted and have unrealistic expectations when it comes "expected revenues"...

If it doesn't make A LOT of money VERY fast, it is a failure, even though it may have very good revenues.

Don't twist what I said...
I said they all seem to have HIGH expectations on revenues, if they don't hit those numbers, they consider it a loss, even though they ARE making a profit, and in many cases a good one, just not what they HOPED FOR...

As an example..
A company I worked for EXPECTED to make 15 million dollars PROFIT one quarter, when they only made twelve million, they considered it a three million dollar LOSS.

You're right. I should've wrote, "How dare companies try to make their revenue targets."

Considered it a $3M loss for what purpose? Internal management's loss? Missed earnings so the company's stock was hammered?
