Nortel Hell

Phil Harvey

2:45 PM -- From Mark Sue at RBC Capital Markets :

It's still tough out there for Nortel Networks Ltd. ; it's now one of the smallest telecom equipment vendors; it has an aging product portfolio, a lack of end market focus, and a weak balance sheet.

Thing is, Mark's right and he might've even erred on the side of been too kind. I'm wondering at what point analysts will start using the term "dumpster fire" to describe companies.
