When a company makes its initial public offering, it’s designed to go higher in the first few trading days. This creates a sense of momentum. And when that doesn’t happen?

Streaming War Battles Point to Oversold Value

AT&T (T) shares first rallied on Monday on news the company was splitting off its media assets. However, shares closed the day lower as traders saw what looked like a poor deal for the company.
