Dish Network Corp. Message Board

  • gstrus gstrus May 10, 1998 10:02 PM Flag

    Why should I buy DISH.

    I feel that the satellite industry will grow very
    rapidly over the next 5 years or so. Currently, I am
    looking at USSB and DISH for investment purposes. Since
    this is the DISH message board, I am asking all you
    folks why should I buy this stock.

    Also, DISH is
    reporting earnings Monday. It's EPS estimate is -1.72.
    Should I buy before their announcement or

    Thanks in advance,

    • I believe subscriber numbers indicate beating the
      estimate.... How they account for the current round of promos
      may make a diff in the short run but I'd buy now...
      this will be the first quarter where 1,000,000
      subscribers will have paid their bills.. even at the cheap
      package that'll be about $50 tp $60,000,000 in revenue
      for the quarter just from subscribers. With costs
      pretty much fixed (in re. to programming) this ought to
      be interesting...
