Yes a decent dividend is all very well but one look at the downward share chart and a Peg of over 6 says all is not well in Hull

I think a good set of results would be reassuring bearing in mind the recent weakness in the stock

Good spot lunatic. With the share price having dropped, it makes Kcom even more attractive ( if you have spare funds!) a cover of 1.5 is just about ok, I can't remember the debt level.

I found this on another site. "High-yield bright prospects For example, KCOM (LSE: KCOM) another telecoms company, which operates in and around Hull, currently supports a dividend yield of 5.3%. Management has stated that the company will hike its annual dividend payout by 10% per year for the next two years. Based on this commitment, during 2015 KCOM’s shares will support a divided yield of 5.8% and during 2016 the shares will support a yield of 6.4%. Current figures indicate that the payout for both 2015 and 2016 will be covered one-and-a-half times by earnings per share. Moreover, unlike Vodafone, KCOM continues to grow as the company is expanding into the broadband and services market. Growth and expansion into these markets is helping KCOM drive growth, despite falling fixed line revenues. By using this strategy, City analysts expect the company’s earnings to grow at a steady single-digit rate for the next two years. "

just to be clear...
ridiculous in the sense that is a great yield, not because i do not understand the calculations behind a div yield - sorry if that was not clear... anyway i was wrong at 90p its more like 6% not 6.5... i topped up at 94p so got myself 5% ish yield which is nice. looing forward to the results...
