An article that cannot be ignored is from this week's Bloomberg's BusinessWeek is that DISH, by their measures, is the worst major US company to work for. Paradoxically, this may enhance DISH's long term appear for a number of reasons. The article makes this point as well. Nevertheless, I would want to see the stock price substantially below current levesl (ie $37) to start accumulating.
My Daddy's advice to me years ago was great then and still is. In this country we are blessed with choice. Now if you don't like working for company X, for what ever reason, quit and find yourself another job.
Too many Americans think they are ENTITLED to everything their way. Actually companies are entitled to things their way.
Think about it.
Chances are that ATT will jump into the Clearwire mess and buy DISH. It makes sense. I bought DISH 2 years ago with the hopes that ATT would buy, and now it seems the rumors may turn to reality. I'd buy now, as ATT would probably pay $50+ for DISH.
