Son is making a presentation on Monday to try to get TMUS even though everything is against him. That's how valuable TMUS is and how bad he wants it. If not Sprint, Dish is coming in with a bid, and this company will thrive even on its own. Its a WIN WIN WIN triple win situation. Very few stocks are like this with such a bright outlook.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Sprint Dish and TMUS will IMO come together. Not sure how just yet , but Son and Ergen are good at what they do in creating business partnerships. Dish and Disney are dancing now... So, why not others...
Son is still trying to make an offer for TMUS- he'll be speaking about that next Tuesday. If he gets shut down Dish may make a move, it sounds like Charlie doesn't want to fight over TMUS but he didn't say he wasn't interested at all.
Sure, maybe if Sprint's network is built before the end of next year, and if Dish's spectrum was usable for phones. Or they could make a purchase that gets them immediate access to the resources they need.
that could work but you forgot about dish. dish will almost certainly go after t mobile if sprint declines. than sprint has a problem because you add t mobile with dish's spectrum and customer base and sprint has a major problem. dish could than bundle tv and internet and t mobile cell phone together. comcast could buy t mobile and then offer a quadruple play instead of a 3 play.
I think that sprint makes an offer even if it means a regulatory fight for 45 a share of the 67 percent.
how much will the rest of the shares move up to I do not know.
Now here is a change of heart DT will invest in TMUS now in hopes to keep the share price up so they justify 45 billion. before all the wanted was out of the U.S. market so unless they pump more cash into TMUS they will get nothing close to what they feel they want. I myself say Son go for the Back door and work TMUS and others away from their carriers for far less then what it will cost to buy TMUS .
Think about it do you need all that real estate and stores that come with that cost ? NOT !
Sub the Phones lower the rates and give more GB per phone and win them customers away from the others .. Stand out and be Noticed. with the New Network nearing completion and better faster speeds win them customers away with much less cost.
If TMUS can brag on 4 mil subs you can do that 10x over while DT pumps money into a dieing company.
Give me a break for that kind of money Sprint can do a lot more damage to TMUS for a whole lot less and maybe even lay them to Rest .
Sprint is the only one to get the Galaxy 5 1st in their stores with that and a ETF like TMUS did and lower rates for all customers along with the new network Sprint could stick a R.I.P. sign in TMUS front lawn for a whole lot less money.
Not to mention the partnership Sprint has with Dish could do even more harm. then if there was anything left of TMUS Sprint could pick it up for pennies on the dollar.
I hadn't seen the news about DT saying a sale was unlikely when I posted earlier. I wonder if they'll invest more in TMUS to play the long game, or just sell their stake when the holding period expires?
Time to jump ships ghettopcs. Read older post from today S is making some major leaps on coverage and speeds. Sooner or later the numbers will shock many. You are probably right. I am actually expecting a good old fashion short squeeze tomorrow or Friday. It will actually be entertaining. I love those weak AXX Shorts running to cover a .10 cents pps increase.
if sprint fails to offer wont dish make an offer in the near future? how could the government block that ?
wont that keep the big boys in for now? is it 100 percent that son will not make an offer? couldnt his lawyers argue his case when the government tries to oppose it?
i do not believe it was $45 anyway. looks more like $4-5. the hyphen was missing by mistake i think. market will make that correction now. anyway does anybody know where is the next free party for the invited and the uninvited?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
why not release the data for all phone manufacturers. they think it is very clever to alienate possible customers. what a way to build your customer base!
definitely bad news. I was very happy to see it at 32.25 today only to watch it drop down to 31.40 after hours and do expect it to drop more. Dish will end up being the most likely suitor by years end. but for now some of the big boys like Loeb could bail taking the profits they have made so far. I will be ready to sell early in the morning if it starts dropping fast. I bougt at 30.50 hoping for an offer from sprint but will now be looking to sell without a loss hopefully.
45? These people a few weeks back they were calling out for $60 lol. Tomorrow is going to be ugly. The big boys will not hold this bag after these news.
