I have owned DISH shares for 15 years and have profited nicely especially with the special dividends...Ergen would not sell this company for less that $100 a share. In his heart of hearts he believes that this company will one day control media distribution and he hates any and all content providers so he will own this stock indefinitelly. remember I dont even think this guy is 60 yet.
Stay long and you will continue to make money in this stock. this spectrum he accumulated over the last several years is a goldmine. Also, I wont be surprised if he spins off blockbuster in the next few years like he did with Echostar.
