    • Rian It’s not just about the dividend. AT&T (NYSE: T) may have a great dividend payout at 7.27% but it had been struggling to keep it’s stock price up.
      Last year, for instance, it lost over 20% of its stock’s price. Losing 20% to gain a 7% dividend is obviously not a great investment strategy, I suppose. This year, it’s stock price is down over
      2%.

      AT&T would have been a good 5G dividend stock if it can keep its stock up at a rate that makes sense. And they have been struggling to do so for a long time now.
      The company is currently making negotiations to secure a $14B loan in order to buy 5G spectrum. Of course, the purchase of the spectrums will strengthen its position but the impact of the strengthen position, on a stock price level, might not be reflected in 2021.

      • Thank you for your response. OK. Fair enough.

        I’ve done the math on reinvesting those divs back into the stock, down 15% over the last 5 years, plus more for inflation of course. A slightly lower price suits me just fine, and the average price is hovering basically around 29 now.
        I think you’re right though as long as the current leadership continues, but who knows?

        Thanks again.

          And yeah, who knows. AT&T can turn things around. Even so, they have to start turning things around before it’ll will make sense to go in. Until then, we just simply watch.
