Telecom giant AT&T (NYSE: T) has its problems to be sure. It was only able to offload part of its struggling DIRECTV business, and that part was shed at a loss relative to its 2015 acquisition of the satellite television brand. Never even mind that AT&T at least postponed a dividend payout increase this year for the first time in 36 years.
