Between the dividend payout yesterday and the market weakness, AT&T Stock moved lower which opened up excellent Put Selling opportunities once again today. AT&T Stock has continued to perform brilliantly for Put Selling but there are warning signs it may fall lower.
AT&T Stock Sell-Off
All the major telecoms were lower today with AT&T down 1.29%. The stock slid lower as T-Mobile announced an increase in their customer base by 1.6 million users in the last quarter. However they are also paying up to $350 per line to consumers to break their contract with bigger rivals to switch to T-Mobile. Meanwhile just two days before AT&T’s stock started falling as the company promised to pay a $200 credit to every T-Mobile customer who switched to AT&T and $250 for any T-Mobile customer who also traded in their phone.
The fear now is that an all-out price war may emerge for mobile subscribers which in the end will hurt everyone’s bottom line. With competition this stiff, all the telecoms declined.
