The simpler version of AT&T without its media assets has attractive upside, and investors should take advantage of the recent dip, according to UBS.

AT&T and Discovery on Monday announced a deal to spin off WarnerMedia and combine it with the entertainment company. Since then, AT&T’s stock has dropped 8%.

UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded the stock to buy from neutral, saying in a note to clients on Friday that the leaner version of AT&T had a clearer pathway to improving its cash flow growth.

And that shareholders would benefit in other ways even as the dividend is cut.
