Consolidated Communications works with AT&T call centers, stores in New England

Consolidated Communications (CNSL) announced it has joined forces with AT&T (T) to give customers more ways to order Consolidated Communications' residential Internet service by offering it through AT&T's call centers and more than 50 retail stores throughout Northern New England. Customers who purchase Consolidated Communications Internet service at speeds up to 1 Gig through AT&T will receive the same high-quality Internet services and features as customers buying directly through Consolidated Communications. Additionally, DIRECTV satellite customers who bundle their DIRECTV service and Consolidated Communications Internet service through this program may be eligible for an additional monthly credit on their DIRECTV service for 12 months provided they meet certain requirements. Consolidated Communications is responsible for the installation, maintenance, billing and customer service relationship with customers who order service through AT&T.

Market Perform
Consolidated Communications downgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche downgraded Consolidated Communications to Market Perform from Outperform and lowered her price target for the shares to $11.25 from $13.50. The analyst also downgraded the Rural Local Exchange Carrier sector to Underweight from Market Weight. She believes Consolidated Communications has the ability to sustain its dividend. However, she is concerned that any sort of restructuring, or perception that a restructuring could occur with Frontier Communications (FTR), "could put a stain on the whole RLEC group." If Frontier has to do "some creative things" with its balance sheet, investors will look to who could be next and Consolidated Communications could be on that perceived list, Fritzsche tells investors in a research note.

Buy
Citi upgrades AT&T to Buy with shares down 23% year-to-date
Citi analyst Michael Rollins upgraded AT&T to Buy from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $34. The stock closed yesterday down 24c to $29.91. The analyst expects AT&T to further benefit from the "measured" promotional environment in wireless, while improving its competitive position from FirstNet and the marketing of its network enhancements, branded 5G Evolution. Further, the company has "several levers" to manage free cash flow and support its net debt deleveraging goals for 2019, Rollins tells investors in a research note. In addition, the analyst believes the stock's 23% decline year-to-date provides a better risk/reward scenario. AT&T trades at a price-to-earnings ratio of about eight times the analyst's revised 2019 outlook and at a dividend yield of about 6.7%. He sees a buying opportunity at current share levels.

Overweight
AT&T likely to raise dividend despite deleveraging goals, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simon Flannery said he expects AT&T to raise its quarterly dividend by 1c to 51c from 50c per share as early as this Friday, which would be in-line with its timing last year. He would view such an increase, which would not be that notable normally but takes on added significance due to the company's high leverage and desire to delever, as a signal of confidence in the recent 2019 business and financial outlook, Flannery tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $37 price target on AT&T shares.
