Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Segment, Monday March 21.

AT&T (NYSE:T), T-Mobile (OTCQX:DTEGY), Verizon (NYSE:VZ), Sprint (NYSE:S), American Tower (NYSE:AMT)

AT&T (T) may go from "worst to first" with the "brilliant" acquisition of T-Mobile (OTCQX:DTEGY), which will take out Sprint (S) as a competitor. Now it is only AT&T (T) and Verizon, with the former having the distinct advantage with T-Mobile's huge consumer base. While both AT&T and T-Mobile had quality problems, Cramer thinks the combined problems will make these issues disappear as AT&T can improve its infrastructure and increase its number of towers. American Tower (AMT) sold off on the news, and while Cramer believes in the company, which seemed to have "seen something coming" with its aggressive international expansion, he doesn't think AMT can be owned right now with its numbers falling.
