High stakes poker: Dish Network, DirecTV, and AT&T are at the table

  • Shares of Dish Network (DISH +2.1%) are putting in another day of solid gains as the stock continues to benefit from M&A speculation stirred up after a story broke on talks between AT&T (T +0.1%) and DirecTV (DTV -1.3%).
  • Some media analysts think the dalliance of AT&T with DirecTV is just a bluff to get Dish Network to the table on a deal for wireless spectrum. If that's the case, it would be the type of poker that Dish CEO Charlie Ergen is also known to play.
