    Isn't it possible that Son/SoftBank know more about Sprint than you do? Do you believe you are smarter than they are? Do you believe they bought Sprint to lose money?

    I want to apologize to "pdb3838" (and everyone else) for calling him a "ridiculous excuse for a human being". I do not know him, I only know what he writes. What I wish I would have said, is that his posts are ridiculous. I will no longer read his miserable posts and I hope he changes, but I have no idea what type of human being he is. Again, I'm sorry for what I wrote in a previous post.....

  • As has been stated on this board, if Comcast and Time Warner can even consider a merger, why can't Sprint and T-Mobile? Comcast and Time Warner are already the #1 and #2 cable companies. If they merge, they will dwarf the #3 cable company. If Sprint were to merge with T-Mobile they would still be the third largest mobile phone carrier. They would have about 100 million customers, AT&T would have about 107 million customers, and Verizon would have about 117 million customers. This is just another reason why it is a good idea for Sprint and T-Mobile to merge. The best reason continues to be, that if Sprint and T-Mobile merge they will more effectively be able to compete with Verizon and AT&T. I can't imagine that Sprint and SoftBank can't come up with enough good reasons to convince the government to approve a merger with T-Mobile. I would expect, in the next month or two, Sprint will either announce a merger or call it off.

    You are right about one thing. I stated that I would not read your posts and I changed my mind. That was a big mistake on my part. After reading this post, I realize my mistake, and I will never, I repeat never, read another thing you have to say.

    That being said, I believe you are a ridiculous excuse for a "human being". This post (and every other one I have ever read) is condescending, egotistical, hurtful, irrational, and above all self-serving. You need to look in the mirror and decide if you want to continue to be the type of person you have shown yourself to be. I hope you are capable of change. Sadly, I doubt that you are.

    All that really matters (to most of us) is the price of S. "Motley Fool" published an article last week stating that S was a "sell" when it was trading at $8. A couple of days later S was trading at $8.40. I wondered, at the time, why "Motley Fool" did not publish an article to "sell" S at $11.....

    I think S long-term is still a great investment. I also believe if they make an offer for T-Mobile the stock will go up, at least in the short-term. When the realization sets in (again) that the FCC and DOJ are against the deal, our stock will probably tend downward. The only way S makes a huge gain in the next few months is if the T-Mobile deal goes through. If however, Sprint announces they are abandoning the deal, I believe there will be a "knee jerk" reaction and S will go down. I would look at this as a great buying opportunity. I believe Sprint will succeed with or without T-Mobile.

    You got to love those guys at Motley Fool. They just posted an article that states, "Use the stocks strength as an opportunity to sell." Strength ?? S is up from the mid $7.50's since the earnings report and is currently trading just above $8. This is "strength"? Where was Motley Fool when S was trading above $10? Why didn't they tell us to sell then?

    I don't believe Son/SoftBank bought Sprint to lose $1 billion per year. I believe they have plans to make Sprint a viable and profitable company with or without T-Mobile.

    S closed at $7.69 before the earning report so apparently investors liked what they saw. It isn't $11 but at least Sprint is heading in the right direction. I would sure like this T-Mobile deal to be settled one way or the other....

    4th Quarter

    billbrittain3 billbrittain3 Feb 11, 2014 4:22 PM Flag

    I believe S would have gone down today if the 4th quarter results had not been as good as they were. If Sprint cuts a deal to acquire T-Mobile, regardless of the DOJ and FCC, I believe it will go much higher. ($9 or above) Regardless, I think the results today indicate that Sprint is moving in the right direction, with or without T-Mobile.

    I agree with you that the downside for S is fairly limited. The results today helped in that regard.

    I am almost at the point where I think it would be a good idea for Sprint to announce they have decided not to pursue the merger and then we will see what the market thinks about Sprint without the merger distraction.

    Sprint to Merge

    I don't know anything about Level 3 Communications, but you bring up an interesting point. It is possible that if the T-Mobile merger doesn't work out, Sprint could merge with another company. I wonder who is available or if it makes sense to do it?

    This "POS", in spite of the recent downtrend, has made me a lot of money over the last 2 years. I have owned S since it was trading just above $2 per share. Did you buy this "POS" back then? "Shorts" will not be "in full control" forever.....

    At noon today my hopes are somewhat limited. I would like a close today above $7.80 and a close tomorrow above $8. Is that too much to ask?
