Stocks to trade after AT&T closes deal to support 5G wireless services

After AT&T's $1.6 billion dollar acquisition of Straight Path Communication, the "Fast Money" traders discuss how the telecom giant is making power moves in its sector and which market plays to make as other companies adjust.

Trader Brian Kelly said he likes Century Link because it's the next move for AT&T. Kelly said the company owns a lot of fiber which AT&T needs to support its growing infrastructure nationwide.

Trader Guy Adami said he likes AT&T because the company is well ahead of its competitors in terms of innovation.

Trader David Seaburg said he likes T-Mobile because the stock will get bought by Sprint or Comcast. He also said if Sprint misses out on the acquisition of T-mobile the stock will move lower.
