What are analysts saying about AT&T stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AT&T stock:

  • 1. Macquarie analysts commented, "We expect this trend will accelerate given its efforts to integrate DirecTV, promos including HBO GO and a US$25 bundling credit, and simplified plans coming soon. Total linear video net adds came in at -233k (excluding DirecTV Now)." (4/26/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "T reported largely mixed 4Q16 results, with both top-line and adjusted EBITDA misses driven by fewer upgrades and continued legacy service weakness. Lower depreciation expenses helped lift adjusted EPS to $0.66. Strong international and entertainment revenues were key to offsetting ongoing weakness in consumer mobility and an anemic business solutions segment, which continues to be handicapped by weak legacy service demand. Promotional pricing of DIRECTV NOW, with zero-rating, saw strong initial adoption, helping to offset churn from the 2G network shutdown. With Ajit Pai recently named as chairman of the FCC, net neutrality is likely to be overturned; and zero-rating will likely be endorsed, paving the way for T’s bundling strategy. Potential tax and regulatory reform should help the telcos attack cable’s historic advantage through a fiber-lead investment uptick amid consolidation." (1/26/2017)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acquisitions and strategic collaborations have played a major role in shaping AT&T’s growth. The acquisition of DIRECTV and QuickPlay Media Inc. by AT&T has positioned it as the leader in the U.S. pay-TV market and boosted AT&T’s earnings and revenues. AT&T’s recent collaboration with Intel should boost software-based network services and IoT. Additionally, AT&T is focused on expanding its 4G LTE wireless networks and field testing the next-gen 5G technology. However, AT&T operates in a saturated wireless market where spectrum crunch is a big issue. Moreover, loss in access lines, stringent regulatory measures and union issues are major headwinds. Additionally, persistent losses in its wireline division is a worry. The company has also been facing intense competition from peers, compelling it to lower the price of its services. This will dent AT&T's margins going ahead." (10/17/2016)
  • 4. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We believe Q4’16 will be the ‘rubber meet the road’ quarter as we gauge the customer acceptance of the new over-the-top (OTT) plans. Our new FY2016E revenue and EPS are $164.2B and $2.87 vs. $164.0B and $2.87 prior, and FY2017E are $167.7B and $3.01 vs. $167.0B and $3.00 prior, respectively." (7/22/2016)
  • 5. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Mellanox reported a nice Q2 beat. Q3 guidance was modestly disappointing, and the company continues to make progress on Ethernet. However, with guidance implying Q3 InfiniBand revenue potentially down Y/Y, it’s hard to get over our concerns around competition from Intel. Maintain Hold. Solid Q2, Nice Ethernet Contribution. Q2 revenues totaled $215M, beating the Street’s $213M. Gross margin hit 71.4%, roughly in line with Consensus of 71.6%. Q2 EPS hit $0.87, beating the Street’s $0.83. Looking at contribution by application, Ethernet grew 28% Q/Q (we estimate ~11% ex-EZCH) to ~$88M (41% of revenue). Omni-Path Seems to Be Gaining Share at 100G. Mellanox stated that Intel is pricing Omni-Path aggressively, consistent with our checks (see our recent piece: Omni-Path Threat Continues to Mount, but Ramp Will Be Slow; Maintain Hold). Mellanox also acknowledged some wins for OPA and price pressure but the company still believes that OPA market share will be limited, perhaps to ~10%. However, Intel, on their earnings call tonight, stated that 50% of new systems in the June Top 500 Supercomputer list used OPA, and the company believes OPA has achieved 30% share of 100G fabric market."
