telephone pole lines 185 7 Telecoms Where the Lines Are DeadTelecom stocks are very attractive for income-oriented investors, considering that they typically are entrenched businesses with high dividend yields. These are low-risk stocks, to be sure, but they are also often low-growth investments, too. That means what you make in regular quarterly dividends may be offset by a slide in share prices.

I watch more than 5,000 publicly traded companies with my Portfolio Grader tool, ranking companies by a number of fundamental and quantitative measures. And this week, I’ve highlighted seven telecom stocks to sell.

Each one of these stocks gets a “D” or “F” according to my research, meaning it is a “sell” or “strong sell.”
