  • There Are 4 Reasons AT&T Is Creating Separation From Verizon [View article]
    TigerTail and Joe are correct. SBC purchased AT&T. There was a debate on which name to keep and ultimately Ed Whitacre had final say and decided on AT&T which was a brilliant move.

    John and La make very good points. Remember what Randall Stephenson said when he became CEO... " everywhere, at every moment and on every device."

    I think he means it too. Their footprint is getting larger and larger.

    Google has a long road ahead too if they want a network like AT&T. AT&T has the ability to match Google speeds very easily and much more quickly.

    "If you aren't growing, you're shrinking." AT&T is definitely looking for growth in M&A. What is Verizon doing? Hmmm?

    AT&T's annual dividend is a $1.84. The dividend you are referring to is the quarterly dividend. Do the math. You are wrong.

    Don't forget that the company still actively buying back shares too. It may explain the stock going to $34 or below and running back up. Just a thought...

    Also, AT&T has a history of raising the divvy. I do not see them changing this anytime soon. I expect a $.01 per quarter divvy increase this coming December. Good Luck to everyone!

  • AT&T's Other Dividend Growth Story [View article]
    You're right. For growth it is not a great investment at the moment. However, the stock is very stable, AT&T isn't going anywhere, and the dividend yield is 5.3%. They raise the dividend every year too. They've been paying and raising the divvy over 29+ years.

  • AT&T's Other Dividend Growth Story [View article]
    You need to make a correction. SBC acquired AT&T among other phone companies. Ed Whitacre was credited with putting AT&T back together although not his intention or main goal at the time. The political and economic environment presented itself and he took advantage of it. He could have never done it in this environment. Look how difficult the new CEO is having trying to acquire additional telecom assets.

  • Update: Hedge Funds Load Up On Alibaba [View article]
    I would like to get some perspective on what everyone is expecting going into the holiday season? Has anyone heard what the market is anticipating as far as sales?

  • AT&T's Intrinsic Value Implies 10% Upside In Shares [View article]
    I am a long term investor in AT&T. They have a very long history of raising and paying their dividend. Once the DirecTV deal is done, this will allow them to preserve the dividend while continuing to improve their network. Great Company!

    p.s. if you are looking for another telecom company, I would look at T-Mobile. What a great turnaround story.

  • Did BlackBerry Sell 200,000 Passports Or A Million? [View article]
    My point is that the question you pose is moot. There is no need to carry two phones. No employer (or at least very very few) that I am aware of require you to use Blackberry for work. It's all BYOD. Financial services, Government services, Medical....doesn't matter; There's no requirement that you use BBRY. And from an employer's standpoint, isn't this a good thing? Now they don't have to hand out and keep track of thousands of company owned devices....the employee owns and brings his/her own device to the table.
