That ship has sailed IMO but T could afford it now better than it could have a year ago given the FX trade and a bid would likely have been in GBP and the U.S. debt market is still pretty cheap on a historical basis. It would be an interesting analysis to see if financing would be best in the U.S. or going to a Euro based issue with the current QE program. The odds would be a U.K. domicile for tax purposes which would be good for U.S. based borrowings, especially if the £ bounced back higher once debt was issued in the U.S. Same for euro denominated debt should the euro rebound in future years when the ECB tapers.
I have to chuckle thinking about DTV and share the same view as VZ CEO. Dish has great spectrum and spectrum is the blood of the mobile industry BUT he does not see a scenario of owning a satellite company that makes sense. He tried to throw a political bone and noted he was not being critical of any deal [DTV sale] out there. I would have to imagine McAdam is hoping their largest mobile competitor buys an AOL rerun [DTV] that will balloon the competitor's leverage and become a cash flow negative acquisition.
One analyst recently called it a commodity company dealing in spectrum as wired line is a minor piece of the pie. BTW, many tech companies turn out to be booms or busts. Not sure if you want that given many are here touting the tenured dividend and current yield.
Is that true? I haven't compared compensation packages but I would think a CEO who burned $6B in spectrum and cash wouldn't be making more than one who is wisely building their streaming TV service from the ground up instead of purchasing an AOL rerun in a satellite TV provider.
3% points performance difference with Verizon in just the month of March.
If that is not performance worthy of firing I don't know what is. And T pays more to its CEO than Verizon. Amazing!
That's because the Reps are going to be sick of hearing it be the election and the Dems don't care. It's a win-win for her.
Hits the 50 DMA and its as if it hit a wall. Back down to 33.4x
Would not be surprised if it ends red today too.
S&P at its highs and T cannot get above its 50 DMA. Imagine a 10% correction in S&P T can easily be in the mid twenties.
Bad execution leads to bad performance done by bad management. Bring in a new CEO, T is too incestuous.
“I'm going to step out on a limb and give both the CMCSA and DTV sales a 20% chance of going through”
Smalls, Only 20% chance? ATAT could have a lucky escape? I hope Stephenson doesn’t consider bidding for his first choice VOD? I don’t realistically think T could afford VOD now? IMHO that chance has passed T by.
No way to know. If you can tell us how long it takes for the courts to drag out then add another rough month to that figure I would guess. Without the information the FCC deems necessary to make a sound decision...if they are being denied such information then deep six it out of an abundance of caution. Apparently there is something to hide that would put a bad light on the deal. Given the dance by both merger deals I'm going to step out on a limb and give both the CMCSA and DTV sales a 20% chance of going through. There has to be something not good for their approval prospects if the players are working so hard to deny the requested information.
Yawn. Because we expose your topics as lies or ignorant posts. It is indeed a circus with a big liar Klown. That is why you delete the posting. Not just topics but pretty much all your posts. Are you saying all of your posts are pretty much worthless to the board since you delete them all? Common sense, General Logic 101. Klown can't pass the course.
What is the difference if you are posting continuous on one message board vs. spread over a couple if you are wasting the day? How many times just in the last month or so have you said you were putting us on ignore and not going to waste your time posting here? One silly Klown hiding behind a multitude of IDs. I am collecting dividends. Options expire and you have to make a move...Klown. KafkaKlown that Treword exposed to be a lonely fellow on a dating website. LOL You're admittedly single. Still doing the five knuckle shuffle in your 40s. You still need to figure out if I'm the single guy in California, a "porker" in Tennessee, a person posting on Pinterest or a latina poon star.
Someday the klown will learn how to run an amortization schedule, maybe not. A home mortgage in the current rate environment with a 3.375% loan will only be paid about 1.60X. (not your Klown 3X) Now calculate a return of just 8% over a 30 yr on that same principal money invested elsewhere instead of paying off the stupid cheap interest money. 10X the money. Let me repeat, 10X the money. Throw in a 10% annual return and you have 17X the principal money. Going with a conservative 8% my cost of interest of .6X the money vs. a near ten fold net value in investment account. Now who looks like a Klown? I've seen folks worth a lot more than you and I combined plus 10X who STILL have a mortgage because it is money better parked in an investment. I'm sure you will delete this post of yours to hide from view how I once again exposed your ignorance.
Who’s the honest one? me the poster with one name that never deletes his post history? OR the Clown poster with at least a dozen aliases, the one that deletes his post’s whenever he gets roasted (like every week) whenever he is caught out with his constant lies?
Regarding the old knuckle shufflers house costing $225K you know Clown, and I know the truth. The best laugh I had was when you said that you had paid off your mortgage. Lol That sounds like a very strange comment for a multi millionaire to say, don’t you think? Then when I followed up with I have never had a loan or mortgage in my life. That really hurt you. With you giving me constant abuse ever since. Lol
You like to think you are the big man, but in reality your not, far from it. You say that I am dead to you, good. BUT we have heard it all before, you will reply under another alias. You are fooling no one. Keep scrambling fool.
Keep golfing old Bachelor Boy. it’s the only hole you will be finding, any time soon. LMAO.

Did you ever look into Jon Corzine? I guess since he's a left POS the press gives that #$%$ a free pass. Maybe he'll go speeding around without his seatbelt again
And you're still the same stinky mess on the bottom of obumber's shoe
“Nige is the worst kind of liar as he says that others said things they didn't”
NO, I don’t tell lies unlike the Clown. What he is referring to is the purchase price of is house. He was boasting that it cost him $225K FACT. He didn’t like it when I replied that my brand new “new build” house in 2011 cost £180K (Pounds) or $270K. He then changed his story to “my garage cost $225K”. He also said that he had paid off his mortgage. He took further offence when I pointed out that I had bought my house for cash, and that I had never had a loan or mortgage. He then deleted his MB history to hide the truth, and destroy the evidence. No the Clown is the dishonest one. Why delete his history if he has nothing to hide? This way he saves face, and able to call me a liar. I don’t delete my history I wonder why that is? Could it be that I have nothing to hide? Why would anyone need aliases if they are honest with nothing to hide?
And that automatically make what I said wrong? Hold on the truth will prevail and you will appear to be the softheaded loser that is fool enough to believe anyone in the Clinton family or support groups. She will not run and if she does, she will lose.
