Jeff Bewkes and Randall Stephenson gave their arguments to a federal judge this week as to why their mega-merger should be permitted to go through. Here's what they said.
AT&T Corp. was sued by a tech firm that accuses the largest U.S. provider of pay TV of stealing the startup’s technology for providing online streaming news and interfering with its launch.
Now let’s take a look at T-Mobile’s (TMUS) technical indicators and compare them to those of its competitors in the US telecom (telecommunications) space.
Now let’s analyze AT&T’s (T) dividend yield compared to its peer Verizon (VZ). A dividend yield is the true cash inflow to investors in return for every dollar invested in a company’s equity until the stock is sold. A dividend yield provides a steady income for investors. Long-term investors tend to choose stocks that have better dividend yields and dividend growth. AT&T’s dividend yield was 5.6% as of April 12, 2018. It was higher than Verizon’s at 4.9%.
Shares of AT&T (T) are higher on news it may soon launch a low-cost streaming service. A report from The Wall Street Journal details the telecom's plans to launch a $15 a month "skinny bundle" service without sports, according to testimony from its CEO during the antitrust case for its proposed acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). That would make AT&T Watch, expected to hit the market in the coming weeks, one of the lowest prices for a nationwide streaming live TV plan. Wells Fargo's Jennifer Fritzsche writes that the move shows AT&T is already making post-court plans. The service would be available to any customer--so a Verizon Communications (VZ) wireless subscriber can sign up--but it's free to AT&T customers.
On April 16, 2018, T-Mobile’s (TMUS) stock price closed at $62.75. The telecom (telecommunications) company’s stock price has fallen 2.0% in the trailing year.
On April 12, 2018, AT&T (T) stock closed at $35.16. It fell 13.3% in the trailing year. By comparison, Sprint (S) and Verizon (VZ) saw their stocks fall 29.5% and 2.4%, respectively, in the trailing year. T-Mobile (TMUS) stock fell 1.4% in the same period. AT&T’s forward PE valuation
T-Mobile (TMUS), the fastest-growing and third-largest wireless carrier in the United States, is expanding its distribution footprint as a means of driving growth in untapped US markets.
AT&T (T), the second-largest wireless service provider in the United States, is facing uncertainty related to its merger deal with Time Warner (TWX), which was announced in October 2016. The $85.4 billion merger is currently in court in a trial that began on March 19, 2018, and is anticipated to continue for eight weeks.
