AT&T (NYSE: T) trades at roughly 10 times this year's expected earnings and pays a dividend that yields 6.6%. The big yield is partly the result of weak stock performance, with its share price having fallen roughly 19% over the last five years while the Nasdaq Composite index rose 192% across the same stretch, and there's admittedly some uncertainty surrounding the company's outlook. The company ended last quarter with roughly $169 billion in debt on its books after making a big investment in spectrum band for its 5G network.
