AT&T to Sell Data Center Colocation Operations to Brookfield

Under the terms of the agreement, AT&T (T) will transfer the ownership of 18 Internet Data Centers in the United States and 13 in international locations to Brookfield.

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Banco de Chile BCH. This is because this security in the Banks – Foreign space is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Banks – Foreign space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 20 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.

Meanwhile, Banco de Chile is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.
