    • You are trying to influence investors with false statements. You should show your intellect with thorough research before publishing false statements.
      DTV's CEO just stated that North American growth in customers grew by over 100k and that Mexico and South America divisions exceeded their projections. (which by the way was for more than 1 million new customers).
      Take a look at the biggest shareholder for DTV. That shareholder is Berkshire Hathaway which over the last two years has taken a position in the company that controls almost 10% of the shares. Who do you think readers of your posts will believe: your thinly researched statements and suggestions that this is a poor investment that should be sold or will they believe the #1 shareholder, Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire Hathaway routinely is the best investor in the country keeps on buying DTV shares. I go with Warren Buffet as I do not see you yet demonstrating the intellectual content to encourage any one to sell DTV.

      Give us some specifics as to why we should sell. By the way, you said DTV lost 50 thousand international customers to DISH last quarter. I suggest you read the annual report for DISH. DISH does not operate outside the U.S. That is right, no international customers while DTV is projecting 20 million international customers by end of 2015 (including Mexico and South America).
