The conventional approach to funding retirement is to withdraw 4% of your savings in the first year, followed by "pay raises" in each subsequent year to adjust for inflation. Over a 30-year retirement, the thinking goes, there is little chance of running out of money if this retirement portfolio is invested in a mix of dividend stocks, a few growth stocks and bonds. Today's world is different. Interest rates and bond yields have never been this low for this long, reducing future expected returns. And Americans are living longer than ever before. Instead of facing the uncomfortable decision of what securities to sell or wondering if you are at risk of outliving your savings, you can lean on the cash from dividend stocks to fund a substantial portion of your retirement. Simply Safe Dividends published an in-depth guide about living on dividends in retirement here. Many companies in the market yield 4% or more. And unlike with the 4% withdrawal rule, if you rely on solid dividend stocks for that 4% annually, you won't have to worry as much about the market's unpredictable fluctuations. Better still, you'll have a chance to leave your heirs with a sizable portfolio when the time comes. Here's a look at 20 quality dividend stocks, yielding roughly 4% or higher, that should fund at least 20 years of retirement, if not more. They have paid uninterrupted dividends for more than 20 consecutive years, appear to have secure payouts and have the potential to collectively grow their dividends to protect investors' purchasing power.

AT&T (T) shares are higher on Monday, helped by a vote of confidence from Morgan Stanley. Where we were: AT&T shares have badly trailed the market this year, amid wider underperformance for telecom in general, and concerns surrounding its takeover of Time Warner. Where we're headed: The telecom sector will soon be replaced by the communications services sector, and AT&T itself could get a boost, given its low valuation and potentially growing investor appetite for defensive stocks.
Before his first season with the Lakers even begins, LeBron James is going Hollywood, gaining influence in both business and politics.
One thing is certain: We’ve come a long way from the benevolent days of employment at “Ma Bell.” Kudos to Theo Francis and the Journal for reporting this travesty, which I trust will help lead to its swift correction. AT&T isn’t the first nor will it be the last to seek rebates from its retirees for overpayment due to the negligence of either the company itself or its servicer.
AT&T is developing an ad tech platform where it can sell targeted advertising on content regardless of where the person is watching and if they have a cable or satellite subscription. Ads could appear on AT&T's television shows and movies, as well as partner media companies' content.

AT&T's (T) addition of fully-controlled Otter Media to WarnerMedia business will help it create a new-era media company to deliver a variety of content to customers.
Tariff clashes between the United States and China is now making things difficult for the stock market. Thus, investing in stocks that provide excellent risk-adjusted returns seems judicious.
The reason American consumers are abandoning their cable subscriptions is not a mystery: It’s expensive, and cheaper online alternatives are everywhere. The answer can be traced to a few decisions in recent years that have set the stage for this extraordinarily lucrative and long-lived business model to unravel: licensing reruns to Netflix Inc., shelling out billions for sports rights, introducing slimmer bundles, and failing to promote a Netflix killer called TV Everywhere. The TV bundle with hundreds of channels, which took off in the 1990s and was ubiquitous in U.S. homes at the start of this century, has fallen from 100 million to 95 million subscribers in the past five years.
WASHINGTON—Almost from the outset of a blockbuster six-week trial this spring, the Justice Department appeared to struggle to convince U.S. District Judge Richard Leon that he should block AT&T Inc.’s planned acquisition of Time Warner Inc. Newly unsealed transcripts—from private bench conferences during the trial between Judge Leon and lawyers for both sides—show the government was having even more difficulty with the judge than it appeared. The transcripts, numbering hundreds of pages, show there were effectively two sets of proceedings at trial: the public witness testimony and a concurrent private dialogue between Judge Leon and the parties at the bench.

Ordering equipment and services from Nokia is just part of T-Mobile's larger plan to spend $40 billion to build out its 5G network.
Otter Media is no longer a joint venture between AT&T and The Chernin Group — AT&T announced today that it has acquired The Chernin Group's controlling interest in the digital media company. Otter Media was founded in 2014 and owns Ellation (which in turn owns anime streamer Crunchyroll and subscription video service Vrv) and Fullscreen (which owns Rooster Teeth).
CVS Health Corp. has dodged one hurdle in its bid to buy insurer Aetna Inc., as antitrust enforcers don’t see competitive problems that can stem from uniting companies that operate at different levels of a supply chain, according to two people familiar with the matter. The investigation by the Justice Department’s antitrust division hasn’t turned up vertical- competition concerns from the merger, according to the people, who declined to be identified because the review is confidential. CVS’s $68 billion deal to buy Aetna was announced on the heels of the Justice Department’s unsuccessful lawsuit to block AT&T Inc.’s takeover of Time Warner Inc., a vertical deal that combined a pay-TV distributor with a programmer.
CBS Corp. is seeking information from AT&T Inc. about conversations it had in 2016 with National Amusements Inc., the controlling shareholder of CBS, about a potential acquisition of the media company, according to a court filing. A CBS subpoena, filed Tuesday in Delaware Chancery Court, comes as the company is in a legal battle with National Amusements and its president, Shari Redstone, for control of the company. One of CBS’s arguments in trying to strip National Amusements of voting control is that Ms. Redstone has tried to force CBS to merge with embattled sister company Viacom Inc., while passing up opportunities for other deals that would be better for shareholders.
AT&T launched its media- and advertising-heavy strategy after completing its long-fought merger with Time Warner.
U.S. antitrust officials sent a stark warning to the federal appeals court considering AT&T Inc.’s acquisition of Time Warner Inc.: No less than the future of media is at stake. The case will help establish whether content distributors such as AT&T, with its massive network of pay-TV and wireless services, can acquire programmers, such as Time Warner, the Justice Department said in pressing its case to overturn the June ruling that allowed their merger to go through. The outcome of the appeal will set “the standard for determining whether industry participants will be permitted to merge into vertically integrated firms that control valuable programming content as well as the means of distributing that content to consumers,” the government wrote to the court.
