AT&T: Dividend Sustainable, Growth Prospects Strong


AT&T is a telecommunications company providing consumers services in voice, data, messaging and digital TV.

AT&T, unlike its competitor Verizon, has two main factors driving its growth - Mexican expansion and DirectTV. In addition, it is doing very well in its postpaid plans despite competition.

Investors may do well layering into positions at around $37.50 per share, despite high valuations.

Company Introduction

AT&T (NYSE:T) is a telecommunications services provider giving consumers services in voice, messaging, data and postpaid TV services. AT&T is facing fierce competition from value competitors, T-mobile and Sprint, but the company is doing a great job adding customers through its paid TV services.
