  1. Qwest is in the same business and they have the same fundamental problems. I don't know if they have fraud but they don't need fraud to go under.

  2. quest was one of andersen's biggest clients, and like WCOM, went to KPMG.

    andersen billed Q $11.9 million versus $16.8 million for WCOM. i can't tell over what period this is by the sheet i'm looking at.

  3. cool, i didn't know the link to anderson. That just makes me more negative on them. Could be a sort of rolling crash in the telecom sector just like what happened after Enron with the energy companies.

  4. Perhaps someone could email Martha and see if she has any thoughts on more companies that may be in trouble.

    Just a point worth noting for where Wcom's trading at the moment is if it manages to get above 0.10-0.11 it'll lose a decimal point,instead of $0.064 it drops that 4,.....get a bit of buying happening they can really boogie once they loose that 3rd decimal.
    May or may not get the chance but if it does get back up there it might be worth watching.
