Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

The pay-TV industry can only do so much to stop customers from cutting the cord and relying on streaming services like Hulu or Alphabet’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube. The top pay-TV providers lost 2.9 million customers last year, up from 1.5 million in 2017, according to a report by Leichtman Research.

Not even virtual pay-TV providers like AT&T’s (NYSE:T) DirecTV Now or Dish Network’s (NASDAQ:DISH) Sling TV could manage to offset losses from their own companies, much less the industry as a whole. DirecTV’s satellite service lost 1.2 million subscribers last year; Dish lost 1.1 million. DirecTV Now and Sling TV added 436,000 and 205,000 net subscribers, respectively. The net adds for the virtual providers are notably down nearly 1 million combined from 2017.

Here are the overarching trends investors need to consider as they look at the cord-cutting trend.
