Decrease in Estimated Annual Dividend

This week marks the first time since the inception of the FiveTwenty portfolio that the Estimated Annual Dividend decreased from the previous week. The decline was caused by the T declaring a quarterly dividend of $0.2775 per share for Q2 2022, down from the $0.54 a share in Q1 2022. In the same announcement T outlined the details of the transaction that will spin-off WarnerMedia and merge it with Discovery Inc to for Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc (WBD).

Given that even after the dividend reduction T’s yield is still above 4%, we are not divesting out position in the company at this time. However, we will wait for the spin-off transactions to settle and re-evaluate our options in the coming weeks.
