    I read all these comments as if AT&T was a "day trading stock"...........stop it. You are playing in the wrong venue. AT&T is a long term holding............lets discuss six years from now. That is the AT&T venue. If you don't understand; get out of the AT&T playground.

    People need to get out more

    Strange question. If you sold in order to buy at a lower price, well done. If you sold because you don't understand the Dish deal.......then you need to get out more and see the world. Wishing you best of luck.

    I have the advantage of traveling throughout the world and when I get out of the USA......I see nothing but the tv dish on every roof top. For 75 to 80 percent of the rest of the world, fiber optic cable is never going to happen. (Seems like AT&T just goes up a little everyday. Must drive the "shorts" crazy.)

    The proposed deal with Direct TV will take at least a YEAR to work out. I believe the deal will go through. I believe this deal will move AT&T to a much higher level of customer base and revenue. Television/content/delivery is a highly evolving business. There is no ideal time to get into this business, one must simply "get in" and have a clear view toward the future. AT&T needs satellite for rural and emerging Central American markets....BUT....at the same time AT&T is rapidly moving through the fiber expansion of their delivery. The market has not dismissed this deal. AT&T stock price is adjusting to the deal. Short sellers and day traders are playing their games. The dust is settling...........and the sky is NOT falling. I believe, at the end of this deal: the sky will be the limit.

    Now, it is all about CONTENT

    Your post is old news. I am talking the future. If you don't get it..........don't buy it. Fiber is growing. There is wireless. New technology is part of this. T WILL be good at this. Content will be a part of it.......a huge part of it. You just look at today..........this deal is all about tomorrow. Wait and see how many understand that when the market opens.

    My hope is that AT&T will (actually, I like AT&TV) execute with their own version of a "Disneyeske" like persona.........and dominate the home entertainment world as the undisputed class act. (I'm going with a value of $65.00 a share sometime in the next four years......and, perhaps, sooner then you think. But it is all content, price, and execution. A tall order.

    Direct TV aquisition...question

    AT&T has already claimed what you are saying......a long time ago.....and are doing a lot in expanding fiber. So, you have pretty much supported my claim. Thanks.

    There has been more negative press than positive press on the Direct TV acquisition. What am I missing in this deal. I am under the impression that AT&T, looking forward, will develop state of the art wireless, expand Direct TV to include 'content,' bundle the package with internet/phone service, and position themselves for the best phone and home entertainment package in the market. AT&T also will position themselves in South America......which provides new opportunities in a whole new continent. Granted, this strategy will take time but I believe there is a HUGE future in home theater entertainment. People stay home and they choose what they want........that technology is still in its infancy. What am I missing? Where are the misconceptions of what I have spelled out here? Please..........serious and informative responses. Thanks.

    What Some of the Analysts are Saying

    AT&T had so many short buyers, so the unwinding takes time. Your numbers are "spot-on". I have freed up other holdings if AT&T goes below $34.00....I'm a buyer, on top of the 4,000 shares I now own. Direct TV purchase is perfect. Opens whole new markets in South America and bundles the services including internest, tv, and phone. One can still plug in Apple tv and get Netflix.......plus whatever program they choose from Direct. The future is inside everyone's home......it is internet driven along with content. The content will come as AT&T grows into this market. And.......I do not rule out an eventual merger with Vodaphone........three to five years down the line. Then, AT&T would own the world.......and that is a pretty good objective. Two years time AT&T will be a $50.00 stock........with the same dividend payout.

    Brokers are people that invent a story to get people to buy a stock so the broker can skim a percentage. Most brokers follow directions. Give your money to charity before you follow the advise of a broker.
