On today’s show we speak to Ben Claremon and Eugene Robin from Cove Street Capital about the intrinsic value of Lumen. Lumen Technology is a new name for a merged entity between Level 3 and CenturyLink.

We discuss how Level 3 holds the hidden upside value while only being one-third of the new entity, and CenturyLink's dying business model is distracting the market attention. Ben and Eugene make a great case for why there may be a special situation between the two right around the corner that could be a catalyst for the stock price to soar.
