Shares of telecommunications companies were more or less flat in the wake of mixed earnings from one of the "big four" carriers. Shares of T-Mobile US rose slightly after the carrier said it grew its subscriber base in the third quarter, though investors were somewhat disappointed that the company gave no indication of long-awaited merger plans with Sprint.
AT&T shares ticked down ahead of its earnings and after the carrier extended the termination date of its Time Warner deal to reflect delays in regulatory approvals.
