AT&T: A Telecom Giant On Flash Sale (Part 2)

As of Friday's closing stock price, T is trading at about 23% discount to its fair value of $40 as determined by a P/E of 15 multiplied by its 2017 earnings estimates.

On the downside, historically T has never traded below a P/E of 11 since last recession. Therefore, the P/E of 11 becomes our worst case support for this stock and translates into a risk of additional 9% downside from Friday's stock price.

Building A City Of Dividend Stocks

I like to track my investments in a visually fun and appealing manner instead of just plain boring spreadsheets.
