A Sneak Peek in the Domestic Telecom Industry

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  - www.rothmanresearch.com - No economies in the world, whether in booming periods or recessionary times, can forfeit the growing telecommunication industry. Putting it in a more to the point format, the world is now a huge telecommunication network. One of the leading markets today is the United States of America which for the last 150 years has been a pivotal component of the U.S. economy. However, many industry experts tend to agree that the U.S. telecom services industry has reached an optimum and is currently on a downtrend due to some key factors like surging network maintenance expenditures and a shortage of product innovation amongst others. Two of the key players in the U.S. are AT & T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Qwest Communications International Inc. (NYSE: Q).

AT & T Inc. is set to release its quarterly report in the next two days, and it would seem that the saturated mobile market in the U.S. and a feeble economic environment of the first months of 2010 might impact negatively on the company's earnings for the first quarter even if AT & T has been actively pursuing a cost-reduction strategy in recent months. "We believe AT & T is in a tough spot right now... there are a number of challenges that the company will have to prioritize in the short an mid-terms, one of those is the effective management of network congestion that could brunt its exclusivity deal with iPhone," commented Mathew Collier of www.rothmanresearch.com.

Another Company that is making headlines recently in the telecom services industry is Qwest Communications as the company has been aggressively working towards its debt reduction program. At the end of 2009, the company managed to reduce its total debt to $14.2 billion. Furthermore, Qwest announced that it will be paying a quarterly dividend of $0.08 cents per share on June 11 of this year. "The telecom services industry is currently at a cross road in the U.S. Investors should play this sector neutrally as it is an obvious analysis that this sector has a tough competition environment, and growth prospects are dwindling as the industry seem to have attain its peak," stated the chief analyst at www.rothmanresearch.com
