T = Trends for a Stock’s Movement
AT&T is a provider of telecommunications services in the United States and worldwide. Services offered include wireless communications, local exchange services, and long-distance services. AT&T operates in four segments: Wireless, Wireline, Advertising Solutions, and Other. The communications products offered through AT&T’s segments reach audiences using just about every widely adopted medium: Internet, voice, television, and mobile. As consumers continue to adopt this technology, providers like AT&T stand to see rising profits.
AT&T is reportedly close to selling its wireless towers to Crown Castle International Corp. (NYSE:CCI), according to people familiar with the matter who spoke to Bloomberg. The sources estimated that the towers could be worth $5 billion but also cautioned that an agreement has not been finalized and that the talks could still fall apart. AT&T could put the cash toward its $14 billion network update and acquisitions in Europe. The cash will also strengthen AT&T’s balance sheet before a planned stock offering.
