  • AT&T's share price recently hit a decade low. We see this disappointing performance at a time when the markets are near their historic all-time highs.
  • Shareholders who bought shares of AT&T in 2009 have seen a meager return on their invested capital.
  • However, taking dividends into account puts AT&T's image as a return killer somewhat into perspective.
  • E.g., investors who put shares in their portfolio for roundabout $22.5 in June 2009 still had an annual return of 5.8 percent.
  • But is this now a 2009 situation again? Well, I doubt that we are looking at a blood on the street situation like the one that prevailed in 2009.
