CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Monday his outlook on shares of AT&T as a dividend play has changed after the telecom giant announced a deal to combine its WarnerMedia division with Discovery.
“I don’t know if I want to own AT&T’s stock as much as I did before this,” Cramer said on “Squawk Box.”
Cramer said he sees benefits of Monday’s deal as it relates to AT&T’s core business and allowing the company to narrow its focus against other rival network providers.
