UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded AT&T (NYSE: T) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $38.00 (from $33.00).

The analyst comments "We believe the stock is trading near all-time low valuations (and the widest gap to Verizon) given a mix of EBITDA declines, concerns over the debt load and secular issues impacting the space. The Time Warner transaction and accounting changes have compounded these issues, leading to a loss of visibility for investors. Our work suggests the company will return to EBITDA growth in 2H18 after a 6% decline in 1H18 given growth in Wireless & WarnerMedia and slower declines in Entertainment."
