Insiders Look to this Telecom for a WIN and a 12.5 Percent Yield (

If you want to know what lies ahead for a company, keep an eye on its insiders. A case in point exists in Windstream Holdings, Inc. (WIN) — a Little Rock, Ark.-based telecom focusing on cloud computing services and integrated voice and video service delivery to consumers in rural areas.
