The Paragon Report Provides Stock Research on AT&T and MetroPCS

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 25, 2012) - Telecom stocks have been known as safe havens to investors in times of global economic uncertainty. Telecom companies generate a majority of their revenues from within the U.S., where the economy has remained relatively stable. With the near-record low yields on 10-year Treasury bonds investors have flocked to the Telecom Sector. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Telecom Industry and provides equity research on AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and MetroPCS Communications Inc. (NYSE: PCS).

Over the last three months the Telecom sector has been the strongest performer of the 10 sectors in the S&P 500 index according to a recent Wall Street Journal article. The sector has recently reached the No. 1 spot on Bank of America Merrill Lynch's ranking of sectors' price momentum relative to the broader market, and earlier this week was labeled "near overbought" by the bank. "They are becoming a little bit more stretched, as far as momentum goes," said Stephen Suttmeier, technical analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. "More investors are aware that these groups are outperforming. You've got to be selective [picking stocks] when you get to these levels."
