American Telephone & Telegraph Company
American Telephone and Telegraph is widely known for the dispersion of its stock; its stock is probably the most widely held of all corporate securities. At the end of 1971 there were reported to be 3,009,768 holders of common stock and 696,545 of preferred. Thus it is not surprising that the percentage of total stock held by the top 30, 7.5 percent, is substantially under the percentage held in other utilities or in corporations generally. The largest single block of stock is that held by the Chase Manhattan Bank (through three nominees), totaling 5,906,510 shares, or 1.1 percent of the 549,310,000 shares of common outstanding. Eight New York banks held a total of 3.0 percent of AT&T common. Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith held in its own account 4,363,971 shares or 0.8 percent of the total. However, if the 2,894,746 shares held for it by Cede and Company were added to the amount in its own account, the total of 7,258,717 would be 1.3 percent and would make Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith outrank Chase Manhattan as the chief holder of AT&T's common stock.
