Jim Cramer Says AT&T Will Have To Cut Its Dividend By 50%

Jim Cramer told AT&T Inc (NYSE: T) investors who want income to sell the stock Monday via Twitter.

What Happened: AT&T and Discovery Inc (NASDAQ: DISCA) announced a definitive agreement to combine WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery's entertainment and sports businesses to create a new global entertainment company.

AT&T shareholders will own 71% of the new company, while Discovery shareholders will own 29%.

"This agreement unites two entertainment leaders with complementary content strengths and positions the new company to be one of the leading global direct-to-consumer streaming platforms," said AT&T CEO John Stankey.

"During my many conversations with John, we always come back to the same simple and powerful strategic principle:  these assets are better and more valuable together," said Discovery CEO David Zaslav.
