Why AT&T and Verizon Stocks Tanked on Thursday

Why AT&T and Verizon Stocks Tanked on Thursday

The two leading U.S. telecom stocks, AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ), came under significant pressure on Thursday. The source of this was a media article about the market entry of a potentially powerful new rival. This put enough fear in investors to drive AT&T's share price down 5% on the day, while Verizon's suffered a nearly 3% decline.
