Our Reports on Stocks in the Telecom Services Industry
Image Source: Mike Mozart.  Our reports on stocks in the Telecom Services industry can be found in this article. Reports include CMCSA, DISH, T, TMUS, VZ, SBAC, AMT, CCI, PARA. The telecom industry is characterized by rapid technological change, intense competition and pricing pressures. The mature wireline segment remains under attack from cable/wireless products. Mobile technology enhancements such as the iPhone continue to attract new wireless subscribers in less saturated markets, but this has not lessened the intensity of competition. Industry constituents continue to pursue acquisitions in order to reduce bloated cost structures and achieve synergies. Average revenue per subscriber and churn rates should be monitored closely. We’re neutral on the structure of the group.

Verizon’s Big Share-Price Drop Opens Opportunity for 6.8% Dividend Yield
Image: Verizon’s shares have been punished, but this has opened an opportunity for a 6.8% dividend yield. Image Source: TradingView. With Verizon’s dividend hike to $0.6525 per quarter in September this year, 2022 has marked the 16th consecutive year of a dividend increase. Shares yield ~6.8% at the time of this writing. Though we wouldn’t be looking to add Verizon’s shares to the simulated Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio or simulated Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio at this time, it may be worth a look for high yield and income investors. Its big share-price drop has made its dividend a head-turner.

American Tower Ups Dividend Payout 6%+ But Shares Not Immune to REIT Sector Weakness
Image Source: American Tower. Cell tower operator American Tower raised its dividend more than 6% from its last payout in October, and while we like the payout growth momentum, we’re taking note of weakening AFFO and free cash flow trends. The REIT’s net debt position takes on greater prominence in the current rising interest rate environment, too, and its forward estimated dividend yield stands at just ~2.9%, about in line with traditional near-term rates on certificates of deposits. We’re watching deteriorating REIT economics closely.

2022 Showcased the Value of a Valuentum Membership
In bull markets, almost everyone is a winner. But 2022 was different. This year was a big test for Valuentum, and we passed with flying colors. We delivered across the board during the year from ideas in the Exclusive publication and the efficacy of the dividend growth methodology to the resilience of high yield ideas and simulated Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio relative performance--despite setbacks from Meta Platforms, PayPal, and beyond. Tune in to the latest video installment from Valuentum. Thanks for listening!

Market Whipsaw: Crypto Collapse and a Lower-than-Expected Inflation Print
Image: Uncertainty in the cryptocurrency markets has surged with concerns over the liquidity of a key exchange. Investors are weighing the spillover effects of crypto with the view that the pace of inflation may have peaked. The U.S. equity market continues to be highly volatile as it whipsaws between concerns over the health and sustainability of cryptocurrency and optimism over lower-than-feared inflation readings. We maintain our bearish/defensive stance on equities, but at the same time, we continue to be “fully-invested” across the simulated newsletter portfolios in part because we don’t want to miss out on days like today, November 10, when the markets are soaring ~2.5%-5.5% depending on which index you are monitoring. We’re also not ruling out a Santa Claus rally through the end of the year. Merry Dow Jones, as they say!

VBI Ratings Not as Impressive As We Would Have Liked in 2022
Image: How the VBI rating system has ranked equities so far this year. At Valuentum, we use the Valuentum Buying Index (VBI) to source ideas into diversified simulated newsletter portfolios, and the VBI may be most applicable to the simulated Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio, where we generally like to include ideas when they register a high VBI rating and remove them when they register a low VBI rating. We always use the VBI in a portfolio setting and never by itself. Let's talk more about the VBI rating system in this work.

AT&T’s Free Cash Flow Coverage of Its Dividend Is Looking Better But Economic Malaise Awaits
Image: AT&T’s dividend obligations have been substantially reduced, aiding in its coverage of the payout with free cash flow. Image Source: AT&T. AT&T’s free cash flow generation in the third-quarter 2022 was good enough to significantly cover the cash dividends paid in the period, generating a free cash flow dividend payout ratio of 52.3% versus 98.1% in the same period a year-ago. Though its massive net debt position will continue to weigh on its Dividend Cushion ratio, AT&T’s free cash flow coverage of the dividend is looking much better these days. Still, AT&T has a lot to prove, and CEO John Stankey has said as much. The WarnerMedia acquisition and spin-off has left a sour taste in many an AT&T investor’s mouth, and while we liked the improvement shown in AT&T’s third-quarter 2022 results, we’re not looking to add the shares to any of the newsletter portfolios at this time. Our fair value estimate stands at $16 per share, and its Dividend Cushion ratio is decidedly negative. Shares yield ~7.1%.
