I just got done visiting a AT&T retail store that is one of their big stores in my area that historically helped me with all my T services. I made the appointment on line and arrived 5 minutes early but still had to wait about 15 minutes. No big deal and I was lucky to get a friendly individual. The bad news was they no longer are allowed to provide service on anything but cellular services. I question why they even have the retail stores. Maybe that is what T management is doing in their own slow inefficient way. The store I visited was about four times bigger than it needed to be. The visit makes me believe that T has a lot of cost cutting opportunities. They really need a operations guy to streamline their business and put their money where it is needed. My experience reinforces my opinion that T desperately needs new management and they need it now.
"This week's report won't be pretty. Revenue will decline for the fifth consecutive quarter. The promise of 5G connectivity to boost usage and rates hasn't panned out. AT&T's wireless business is facing competitive challenges, and its legacy business is fading away. It's dangerous to buy into AT&T until its spinoff is completed cleanly, the new dividend is settled, and organic revenue growth returns. Until we check off all three of those items, this is going to be a bad connection for investors."

Hi all, first day on this Board, I bought in this morning, with Div of near 8.1% seemed like too good to be true, I see the stock is knocked down quite a bit over the last 6 months, I had not done any DD but knowing the company and how long they have been around figured they were not going anywhere, is the OAN the only thing driving the price down? I did not see anything else in the resent news?
How do you know when you are making the right investment choice ? IMO, change, chance and incite. Incite I will leave to a expert.
Omaha, Neb., super-investor Warren Buffett disclosed Thursday that he bought more than two million common shares of American Telephone & Telegraph Co. in the third quarter for an investment in the telephone company worth about $80 million at current prices.
About change and chance. To have change, changes must be made. T is making real changes. To have a chance, you must take chances. T is taking chances. T has brand, scale, and leadership willing to make changes and take a chance. IMO for the reason above T's share price is near its bottom.
You wanna make a political statement about T vis a vis cnn or oan, fine. But pls stop trying to link stock performance, earnings potential, m&a implications etc to these. They don't move the needle.
Have not posted to a yahoo board in 21 years. Lost everything in the tech wreck of 2000. Started accumulating ATT 3 years ago and have been watching this board along the way. Has been a painful journey but feel the tide is finally starting to turn. Volume towards the end of the week was huge. Many weak hands being shaken out but for every seller...there has to be a buyer. I'm just going to grit my teeth and see what next year brings. Hope springs eternal...so they say.
Remember, After 2022 spin off, shareholders receive dividend from both companies. Shareholder will receive shares from Discovery/Warner Media to make up difference of smaller AT&T. Added together shareholders much richer than today's AT&T share price. Unlocking value, reduce debt, streamlined businesses and grow business is management goal. October 21st is AT&T conference call. Long & strong AT&T!!😃
KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst Brandon Nispel upgraded AT&T shares to sector weight from underweight, but he thinks AT&T’s target for $20 billion in 2023 free-cash flow is “unachievable” and argued that while AT&T should be able to support a dividend payment of more than $8 billion, “the company is likely to miss its payout ratio target of 40%-43% of free-cash flow.”
This sounds like one more analysts that is not confident in T management.
'Dun'e movie looks to be a blockbuster both critically and with movie viewers. 'Succession' is the best show on TV. HBO Max has the best content, hands down, & this stock is being treated like its GE going bankrupt.
Don't understand why there is no class action suit against BOD for failure to perform their fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders. Seems there is never any accountability for bad decisions and leadership at the top. Shareholders always feel the economic impact in share price, but at the top they still are over compensated receiving bonuses and stock options regardless.
the only way to read a positive chart for this stock is to choose "max" option and go back to 1993 :)
20 years ago today.... T was at $42.00/share. Enough said. 100's of millions in compensation have been paid to management over that time, including Stankey. For what?
People aren't working and are taking themselves out of the workforce. Especially the women. The Govt will provide Food and shelter and Internet. What more does one need.
Selling begets more selling. I understand why people want out. I am nibbling here,and the lower it goes,I might sit down and eat. I am sorry for people's losses here. The first stock I ever owned was the old Bellsouth. They sent some info with the phone bill about buying their stock and I did. This company has made collasal mistakes,and the shareholders have paid for it. I hate that for them. I do think this is starting to get a little cheap. After the spinoff,T is still going to pay a nice little dividend. The stock price won't stay cheap forever. I like viac much better as a media investment,don't really want the spinoff,but core At&t at the right price is attractive to me.
Why does $T keep falling? Thought this would be a boring stock with a decent dividend. Expected it to move with the market, not against.... What am I missing?
Just a personal thought. Been at this game a long time. I would not listen to any Analyst, Internet Advisory services, or the self appointed experts on CNBC. It's all manipulation, and yes anything but "fair." More often than not, when people tell you to sell they are buying it up- and of course the revers is also true. Net net, at the end of the day you have to use your own gut- It boils down to risk vs reward. Amazing, one Analyst changes his target and huge panic sets in. I wouldn't trust any of these people having learned from the last meltdown where these Analysts had A ratings only to see tons of their picks go up in flames.
One thing is for certain- the funds and MM know how to create fear and shake out the sheep. They have every advantage. At these levels I'm buying.. GLTA D
Many posters don't seem happy with their investment in T. We all know life is too short to accept that. So leave, be happy some where else. Why not ? Motor on down the road.
Doing an informal poll here. If you’re a AT&T shareholder. Are you planning to keeping shares in the new media company or selling them. Hit thumbs up for keeping and thumbs down for selling. Cheers!

8% dividend yield at this price. Can't go much lower, we're closing in on book value. I honestly don't get it. Cellphones and internet are right up there with water in importance to humans. LOL
It's T time. I don't know how much lower it will get. I'm buying for every 50 cent drop. T is one of 6 companies on earth that own all of under-ocean fiber cable. Sure their forays into Satellite TV and other content have been disasters, their fundamentals in wired and wireless communications are peerless. Even VZ falls short. I'm not gonna watch day to day.
