    • Your sill post. This is what the pros say.


      Of all the companies I'm featuring here, Sprint(S_) is the only one that is also on my list of the 11 Worst-Run Companies of 2011. The company's cash flow from operations has deteriorated for years. Sprint's Z-Score of -0.63 indicates that the company is at risk for bankruptcy.

      I won't want to waste any more time or space by beating this dead horse other than to add that it is definitely one to avoid.

    • where are you getting those number..they have less than 3.7 billion cash as of sept 2011..they had 5.17 billion at the end of 12/2010...i really don't care to check the rest of your numbers but i am sure they are wrong...its the cash that is the issue..your need to overstate is the problem..if they had not refinanced the march maturity they would be near 2 billion or less...i just don;t think this going to turn around soon.

    • Where are the 8 billion of new lte debt needs in your great sprint numbers that are coming in 2012?

      Where is the 20 billion apple commitment factored in with your 2011 thru 2013 numbers?

      Where is the great curve that shows the lost 40 billion of shareholder value as the sprint shares have fallen from more than 20 per share 3 years ago to just over 2? 40 billion of lost value is one heck of a performance record for sprint.....a company that had a value of 50 billion 3 years ago is now with less than 7.....

      Go back to Harvard and create another pump it up statement....

    • How about posting the all important post paid customers....


      The only way the iphones shows profit later is if they get new customers, because a reup is a loss...

    • Sprint still hasn't recovered from the excuses they used the last time this dropped hard a few months ago... They got the iPhone, the funded CLWR, they are building their own LTE Network to lease out, They are finally doing things right but the ANALysts are saying SELL... Hahahaha what a bunch of clowns and corrupt POS's.

      In addition
      504K postpaid loss .....250K+ postpaid gain
      $55 Postpaid ARPU ...$58+ Postpaid ARPU

      The comparison period is when Sprint was last bouncing around these pps levels

    • Profitable in the Q4 if not for so many Iphone sales? Here's for those who have already forgot. Enjoy!



      "Additionally, the company reported operating income of $208 million, a net loss of $301 million and a diluted loss of $.10 per share for the quarter, which includes $261 million in equity losses of unconsolidated investments and other. This compares to an operating loss of $213 million."


      Includes $261M in equity losses! Only $40M away from break even.

      • Not sure I fully understand what you're suggesting with these numbers, but I will say this: those "equity losses" from unconsolidated investments are real economic losses, not just some discretionary accounting choices. Sprint has quite a few "equity investments" - it's so routine that one could argue that the equity gains and losses SHOULD be included within Operating Income. Professional analysts and forensic accountants don't like the use of one-line equity investments because there is no transparency behind the numbers. And we frequently 'reclassify' these items back into Operating Income to develop a more realistic picture of the company's ongoing performance.

      • The Epic Touch 4G is the Sprint WiMAX 4G version of the globally successful Samsung Galaxy S II. The device was first released in Asia and Europe, and in five months sold 10 million units, setting a Samsung sales record. The previous record was held by the predecessor to the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Galaxy S. Since arriving in the United States, global sales of all models of the Galaxy S II have shot up past the 30 million unit mark. And soon after Sprint debuted their version of the Galaxy S II, the Epic Touch 4G, Samsung moved past Apple as the leader in global smartphone units sold.
