Jim Cramer Likes AT&T’s ‘Bold Move’ With

Jim Cramer likes that AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) is making a bold move to revitalize its stock with, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), the “Mad Money” host said in a recent discussion.

The comment comes from the Mad Money host as a report from The Wall Street Journal revealed that AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) will likely be the sole carrier for the much-anticipated, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) 3D smartphone the internet commerce giant is expected to debut tomorrow. According to the report, people familiar with the plans for the, Inc.

Cramer explained his opinion by saying:

“I like AT&T making a bold move because [their] stock has been stuck and they’re are doing an acquisition. Real pulse down there at AT&T. Verizon [is] back to almost to $50. I think that AT&T is a company that makes sense on a yield basis to give you a little growth.”

Cramer’s partner then replied by saying that he thinks AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) is not a growth stock and that they are doing a deal because this is what they know how to do. To maintain their dividend and payout ratio, the company has to do the deal, he added. The carrier is set to acquire DIRECTV (NASDAQ:DTV) for $49 billion.

Cramer said, however, that AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) needs to keep moving in this business. He added that if the carrier’s plan with, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) takes off, people are going to be sitting asking how the two companies figured that deal would be beneficial for both companies.
