unfortunately the readily obvious reality is they aren't doing one or the other very successfully - and have NOT done either successfully for 11 straight Quarters!
Am I the only one of three or four people on this Board capable of reading and correctly interpreting such things as a Company's financials? AND, are there only three or four people on this Board (including me, of course!) who RESEARCH a stock before jumping in with cold, hard cash?
I see, "snuffy-hottie-ette" is now using SEVERAL alternate ID's - but still beating the same broken drum!
Well, considering in just three Quarter this year Sprint's lost $2,536,000,000 (that's $2 BILLION, 536 MILLION !), so what? Even if they started saving, "...$2Bil annually..." right NOW, they'd STILL be losing money!
Also worthy of note: the analyst is referring strictly to the NEXTEL part of the infrastructure. Considering that's already a money-loser for Sprint and the Division that's losing customers the fastest, I suspect that savings estimate is WILDLY optimistic! AND, guess everyone forgot how much Sprint is spending on REBANDING the Nextel stuff! THAT, in itself, was a multi-billion dollar effort!
Some analysts REALLY shouldn't be reporting on telecommunications as they're simply not knowledgeable about that market!
