AT&T stock (NYSE:T) has declined by around 9% over the last month, underperforming the S&P 500 which has gained about 5% over the same period. There are a couple of factors weighing AT&T
stock down. While AT&T published a stronger than expected set of results for Q2 2022, posting strong growth in the lucrative postpaid business, it cut its free cash flow outlook for the year from $16 billion to $14 billion. The lower guidance is partly due to the investments the company is making into its 5G network and also due to slightly later bill payments by customers, amid a weakening economy and low consumer confidence. Separately, over the last month or so, investors have warmed up to beaten-down technology and growth stocks and this could be hurting low-growth value picks such as AT&T.
