AT&T: Merger Problems?


AT&T (T) appeared on the verge of closing the Time Warner (TWX) merger in the near term until the news from Brazil today. A top regulator has concerns about the competitive threat of the merger.

AT&T remains under threat from a competitive domestic market where wireless and pay-TV customers are a struggle to keep. The big question is whether the merger problems alter the investment thesis in either AT&T or Time Warner?
