I started following these companies in March of 2014: Comcast, Time Warner Cable, AT&T, Google, Verizon, DirecTV, Dish Network, Sprint, T-Mobile, Outerwall, Netflix, Time Warner Inc., Lions Gate Entertainment, Twenty First Century Fox, CBS Corporation, and AMC Networks. In my opinion, the telecommunications is the most fascinating industry out there. In 2014, I look forward to learning as much as possible about the industry and its powerful players.
