ATT Trading Alerts and Improvement Suggestions

The company has accumulated 237.59 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 1.27, which looks OK as compared to the sector. ATT Inc has a current ratio of 0.91, which means it has a negative working capital and may have difficulties to pay out interest payments when they become due. Debt can assist ATT until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, ATT's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like ATT Inc sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for ATT to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about ATT's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

ATT Greeks

Most traded equities are subject to two types of risk - systematic (i.e., market) and unsystematic (i.e., nonmarket or company-specific) risk. Unsystematic risk is the risk that events specific to ATT or Communication Services sector will adversely affect the stock's price. This type of risk can be diversified away by owning several different stocks in different industries whose stock prices have shown a small correlation to each other. On the other hand, systematic risk is the risk that ATT stock's price will be affected by overall stock market movements and cannot be diversified away. So, no matter how many positions you have, you cannot eliminate market risk. However, you can measure a ATT stock's historical response to market movements and buy it if you are comfortable with its volatility direction. Beta and standard deviation are two commonly used measures to help you make the right decision.

ATT Volatility Alert

ATT Inc has relatively low volatility with skewness of 0.73 and kurtosis of 3.8. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate ATT Inc to ensure all accessible information is consistent with the expectations about its upside potential and future expected returns. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure ATT's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact ATT's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

ATT Implied Volatility

ATT's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of ATT Inc stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if ATT's implied volatility is high, the market thinks the stock has potential for high price swings in either direction. On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that ATT stock will not fluctuate a lot when ATT's options are near their expiration.

ATT Fundamentals Vs Peers

Comparing ATT's fundamentals to the average values of its peers is one of the most widely used and accepted methods of equity analyses. It helps to analyze ATT's direct or indirect competition across all of the common fundamentals between ATT and the related equities. This way, we can detect undervalued stocks with similar characteristics as ATT or determine the stocks which would be an excellent addition to an existing portfolio.

The market value of ATT Inc is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of ATT that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of ATT's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is ATT's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because ATT's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect ATT's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between ATT's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine ATT value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, ATT's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
