Geez smalls. I think you need a diversion like bocci ball or something.
Analysts need to resolve a healthy beat bottomline with a miss topline. The simple fact is that the dividend is secure at these levels and as long as T sticks to its knitting, rather than overpaying for more marginal assets, they'll survive and maybe thrive.
Lead with your biases and sell with your stupidity. By GAAP standards T could not include close to 2 billion in income that they actually logged prior to July 24. Had they been able to, they would have beaten the high end of estimates and blown away their quarterly net. But go ahead, sell it off, I'll buy more and eventually an analyst with his head actually swiveling will see what actually happened this quarter.
