I'm not single in my 40's like the klown act here who is still double dating Rosy Palmer and Palmela Handerson. The klown was the one spending a Friday night in his basement. I did spend a couple hours in the basement late Saturday afternoon watching the tube as rain forced me inside for awhile. Playing outside for the balance of the weekend beyond that. Hosted kid's soccer team for a pool party yesterday and went for a dip as well.
Your call for fresh air for me is uncalled for as I had plenty ....and I do not live next to the klown.
I'll start it off with: "The Wolf of T Street" in light of his T fetish.(my favorite)
Another would be:"Future Man" in light of his ability to see the future.
Could also be "Fart Man" in light of the performance of his predictions.
Well you are for certain-not at&t LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Idiot !!!
Contraire Tiglet. $48B in Cash and stock PLUS the assumption of $20B in debt on DTV's balance sheet. Add in some advisory fees and legal costs and you are approaching a $70B gamble for pay TV bundlers to prevent new competition.
Vincent, the WSJ opinion piece. Even Netflix doesn't think it should be blocked BUT BUT BUT that the approval should have conditions which would pretty much be AT&T accepting Title II rules that they are fighting against in court. FCC could very well approve the merger but the question would be if Stephenson would accept the conditional approval stink bait that opens the door to fair competition among not only pay TV providers but for ISPs as well. The stink bait that removes competitive barrier and will make for an influx of pay TV competition killing the pricing power for DTV.
The key for DTV Mexico is that it is a minority ownership in that market. My math hits the mark and why the klown show won't touch it. As for outlooks.....Nearly 70% of M&A's don't hit their claimed synergies. No reason to believe AT&T management will beat the curve when they so poorly guided for 2014. $400-500 million synergies likely, not 1.6B or the 2.5B that T is now claiming. Most of the big growth is over in Latin America. Penetration is approaching 60% vs. what in the U.S.? ....in a lesser set of economies than the U.S. Even if penetration in Latin America breaks 80%, THE MAJORITY OF GROWTH IS OVER for Latin America. The additional growth will be shared with other pay TV pipes outside of satellite, including IP based TV.
AT&T is betting on Title II being beaten in court or altered by Congress. It was the courts that stated ISP needed to be classed Title II for FCC to impose net neutrality. Now tell me why the court would tell the FCC it essentially needed to move ISP to Title II if it was not within the FCC's power. Second, legal moves by Congress to dump Title II would be a waste as it would appear Obummer would block anything across his desk killing the FCC's move to impose net neutrality. You're the better part of two years out if the Dems lose the WH before Congress can save the cartels attempt to stifle ISP and pay TV competition. Still believe the DOJ should sue the Cable and Telco associations for operating a cartel in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. That would rock the boys club on their heals....and bring true high speed broadband investment by many that are being prevented from entering or expanding their ISP position.
Story last week that the government would not block such a deal possibly why T shares are acting better lately. Something has to make these shares go higher because very little they have done has worked out lately.
LOL So you bought a blow up doll with a tan. Not surprised as you also like latino tranny with a tan.... Loser at home on a Friday night with his blow up at his side digging through years old posts of another poster.
On April 2, T was at $32.66. So, if you bought, the odds already turned out right, You're doing much better than a CD. To get a great yield, buy T on dips.
Looks like his bet is that the courts or congress will save protect his $68B wager on DTV. Given his expectation that the FCC action won't hold water, FCC should deny the DTV merger based on Stephenson's assumption it will be struck down and the market concentration in overlapping UverseTV and DTV markets would harm consumers. ......or FCC require AT&T to accept the Title II provisions to gain approval. Will be interesting....
