Jefferies reiterates a 'Buy' on Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) price target of $6.00.

Analyst, Thomas Seitz, said, "Frontier reported 2Q12 results that indicate that operations continue to slowly but steadily improve. Adjusted EBITDA margin (49.3%) jumped to a post acquisition high as the company continues to take costs out of the business. We believe the maturity schedule is manageable and the dividend payout ratio is likely to stay below 50% for several years." (FY12 EPS estimate lowered from $0.19 to $0.16, FY13 raised from $0.26 to $0.28)
