There’s no doubt AT&T Inc (NYSE: T) faces some steep challenges in early 2021. Just days before the company announced Q1 earnings last week, a Wall Street Journal piece featured the views of a prominent bear under the headline “Is AT&T a Train Wreck?”

Barron's is piling on with an article concerning AT&T Inc’s (NYSE: T) loss of DirectTV subscribers, following up on a cover story critiquing the telecom giant's acquisition of Time Warner last year.
