The Motley Fool: The animals of Wall Street
In 1873, working with a customer with a good idea, I patented and made the world's first pair of denim jeans. The company has a high debt load and primarily operates in the increasingly competitive wireless industry. Proposed lower taxes and a business-friendly environment in the U.S. should provide a tailwind for profits. AT&T is becoming a growth engine again, too, with its acquisition of DirecTV and its proposed takeover of Time Warner (which isn't guaranteed to be approved). Bundling its pay-TV, wireless and broadband internet services gives the telecom giant tremendous leverage in delivering media content across multiple platforms - especially if it excludes that content from data charges across its own networks. If the GOP succeeds in lowering corporate tax rates, that will also help AT&T.
