Download the FOCUS U.S. Communications Service Provider Quarterly: Spring 2014 Report

FOCUS U.S. Communication Service Provider QuarterlyAfter a strong performance in our Winter report, the FOCUS Communications Service Provider Index (CSPI) slipped in this most recent period with a loss of 0.2%. This loss underperformed the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ, both of which turned in modest gains for the period.

In the M&A area, activity in the Communications Service Provider sector started off the first three months of 2014 at a strong pace.

However, the announced dollar value of $68.8 billion already makes 2014 the biggest of the last five years in terms of announced dollar volume.
