    yeah, i was surprised the stock was going up, given that they were in a poor position with the lawsuit. the judge hated them. if they settle they would have to pay a fair amount. i guess it could have been a lot worse. $700 -80 = 620. 620/16000=3.9%. I seriously doubt the recent run up factored in a 3.9% hit to the stock due to a large settlement.

    • The 3.9% doesn't even count how many subscribers they lost. So far everyone is hush, hush about it. I am sure within the next week we will see just how many.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • "From an ongoing business perspective, the inclusion of the licenses is perhaps the most interesting part of this deal, and speaks unambiguously to Dish's desire to follow through on building a wireless network," Craig Moffett, a Bernstein Research analyst, said in a research report.”

      "The 500 megahertz spectrum is very high frequency and not suitable for mobile network deployment," he said in a report. "This spectrum can only be used for point-to-point applications and it requires line-of-sight. Therefore, we believe it could be used for fixed wireless and potentially mobile backhaul."

      It looks like “ smart money “ likes the wireless spectrum licenses part , The 620 million was a surprise to me but in the long run its two good quarters of
      free cash flow for Dish. The CC will be interesting this time.
