"Charlie Chat" is the little-publicized monthly live show on Dish Network featuring Echostar's CEO Charlie Ergen, and sometimes other company execs as guests. Production values are not all that great, but I always find this an informative and entertaining way to gain insight into the company's current activities.
Anyhow, this month's show is tonight, May 14, at 9PM Eastern time on Channel 100. They take live calls at 888-621-2078, or FAX at 888-621-2079 or email to email@example.com. If you haven't seen one of these, check it out! --Rich
Dish had a great run-up in anticipation to earnings. The stock in the past 60 days has increased over 33%. It also reached new highs. Your going to have some profit taking. I'm in for the long term. If they keep adding 200k users per quarter they should have 1.8 million by the end of the year. Dish's financial position can only improve even with the company investing in generating new subscribers.
Oops! In regards to the previous message, I called Dish Network today to confirm the "Charlie" broadcast, only to find they'd rescheduled it for the same time, 9PM Eastern, but on Friday the 15th. Apparently they didn't want to compete with Seinfeld.
