Ok guys what u guya getting out of todays sprint announcement of a 2 billion capital raise?
The crazy idea of clwr getting a buy out offer from another company is not so far fetched. They were willing to pay 8 bil for metro plus another 2 bil cap raise may mean 10 bil buy out for clwr, to outbid whoever bid for clwr.
Wonder if Dan and Ralph will lunch together? Or watch the same pole dancing soirée at the local tata lounge next door... What a concept! The next few weeks will be the most dynamic for Sprint and Clearwire, in my opinion.
When (if) Clearwire's current course of actions flesh out, the dependence on Sprint will become a healthier balance and what other company's CEO might say at conferences not so overwhelming a concern. The facts are that Clearwire has been too dependent on Sprint out of necessity. Part of that is just in the timing of outside developments... still outside of Clearwire's direct control. A healthier situation should emerge and must if Clearwire is to grow sufficiently to survive.
So what if Hesse says stuff? What Clearwire does is more important. Sprint must pursue partnering with others to achieve a better balance in spectrum and market mass with which to compete.
This is a chess game.. don't expect the other side not to make their own moves.
Hope speaks on Tuesday. I said this last October prior to a similar CFO CC: Don't expect much by way of news. Hope is Solo tomorrow. If there were a big announcement, CEO Prusch and others, including Stanton, would be there too.
If Clearwire cancels the meeting Tuesday of if there is some indication that Prush or Stanton or both are attending the meeting -->
