Very interesting in the context of discussing how Apple should by Netflix, Cramer suggests that buying Sprint or Clearwire is practically a necessity for Apple:
"I know Apple's been tantalizing us with the idea of a new gadget, but unless they buy a Sprint or a Clearwire, the airwaves could elude them. I simply do not believe that the cable companies are willing to comply with Apple."
And the CLWR board wants to sell to S for $2.97/share? Please....
You do realize Cramer has been telling everyone to sell CLWR since it was 86 cents, right? Now that it's $3.30 he's tickling our fancies with a buyout fantasy involving Apple... When this baffoon says sell, you need to buy (I did); now I'm wondering if I need to sell.
Cramer is actually catching up to what this board had been speculating months ago. Apple needs to reinvent themselves or they will have a shareholder revolution on their hands pretty soon. They need to find another unique position in the market. That is how they got to be what they are and I do not see them changing that strategy anytime soon. Perhaps that is why they have been hoarding cash all these years so they can buy their way out of a rut when they hit that threshold. I think they may become a player in the spectrum space and offer a unique package to users that will blow everyones socks off. The problem is that Google may be thinking the same thing. Some may say I am dreaming and need to come back to earth. However, what else could they do to distance themselves from the competition besides coming out with another revolutionary smartphone/tablet or TV or getting into entertainment. I think the options are limited for them and they will have to bundle offerings of some sort to take the lead again.
