TWX T

As for its wireless business, AT&T expects handset upgrades to fall by 900,000 annually due to longer upgrade cycles in the smartphone market. That's why investors were rattled by AT&T's recent warning that its third quarter US video subscribers would drop by 90,000 for the quarter, despite the addition of 300,000 subscribers for its streaming platform DirecTV Now. But if we look at AT&T's dividend as a percentage of its free cash flow (the cash dividend payout ratio), it looks sustainable.

But while investors are unimpressed, behind the scenes Verizon is investing in its network in preparation for the eventual launch of 5G, the ultra-fast next generation of wireless service that will enable not just more mobile binge-watching, but also purposeful advances like driverless cars. But in this environment and as AT&T begins to reap the benefits of owning HBO and other TV networks, it's possible the door is still open for a Verizon deal.
