Shares of AT&T Inc.

+5.05%

rose 1.5% in premarket trading Thursday, after the telecommunications and media giant reported a third-quarter adjusted profit that matched expectations, while revenue fell less than forecasts. Net income fell to $2.76 billion, or 39 cents a share, from $3.70 billion, or 50 cents a share, in the year-ago period. The FactSet consensus for net earnings per share was 51 cents. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted EPS of 76 cents matched the FactSet consensus. Total revenue fell 5.0% to $42.34 billion, above the FactSet consensus of $41.61 billion. Postpaid subscriber net additions were 1.1 million, with phone net adds of 645,000, while prepaid subscriber net adds were 245,000. Total postpaid churn was 0.85%, with postpaid phone-only churn was 0.69%. Communications revenue fell 3.1% to $34.3 billion but beat the FactSet consensus of $33.6 billion, and WarnerMedia revenue dropped 10.0% to $7.5 billion but beat expectations of $7.3 billion. The company sees fourth-quarter revenue being hurt by the partial closure of movie theaters and postponement of theatrical releases as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and by the decline in international roaming wireless services revenue due to reduced travel. The stock, which fell for 10-straight days through Wednesday, has tumbled 31.6% year to date, while the S&P 500
