AT&T (NYSE:T) saw its stock rise by over 6% today as it reported third-quarter figures that exceeded expectations. The company posted an adjusted EPS of $0.64, surpassing analyst estimates by $0.02, and its revenue of $30.35 billion slightly exceeded the consensus estimate of $30.2 billion.
AT&T also reported that cash from operating activities for continuing operations in Q3 reached $10.3 billion, marking a $0.2 billion increase compared to the same period in 2022.
