With increased use and resolutions of video, and 10x the connections with IOT, At what point does the increasing pace of data usage surpass the available capacity? Looks like very soon, just starting now, but growing over the coming years. Which carrier is best positioning itself for the next big growth phase? Content was king, but now with so much content out there, maybe carrier is the new king. I'll take mine unmetered, unfiltered and neutral.
Far from it!
A growing population, burgeoning business needs, and growing data demand are giving wireless companies plenty of paths to grow their bottom-line.
Wireless research firm CTIA noted that U.S. mobile data usage doubled between 2012 and 2013 and is expected to increase by an additional 650% by 2018. A big component of that is mobile video which is expected to see traffic grow by 600% between 2013 and 2018. Yet, the coup de grace for the wireless industry could be its massive wireless connectivity potential between devices and appliances. CTIA predicts growth from 36 million wireless machine-to-machine devices in 2013 to 263 million by 2018.
Gonna need to get that 2.5 in place...
First run of 300 units sold out. Not much news since...makes me wonder about current production numbers. 'Retail' Robotics is in its infancy and this market is vast and untapped.
At that price point It's clearly not for everyone. But there is a huge market for this type of device. People paid more than that for the first flat screens. It's a bargain as: teaching device in schools; a marketing/customer service device for business; an elder-care device; a toy for the rich (Bluetooth with your cell phone and home-automation devices "Pepper, turn off the lights in the kitchen and don't forget to have coffee by 7 tomorrow morning.") For those that stand to make millions off a head start in development, it's a steal.
Pepper coming to the USA is something to get excited about.

Merger of Near Equals: T-Mobile and Sprint
The merger of T-Mobile US Inc. (NYSE: TMUS) and Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) is a merger that was already expected to happen, but it was given a thumbs-down view by U.S. regulatory powers. AT&T Inc.'s (NYSE: T) effort to acquire T-Mobile also failed, and AT&T had to pay a $4 billion break-up fee. Still, Sprint and T-Mobile are effectively tracking stocks as they stand now. Sprint claims to have 56 million customers, and T-Mobile was recently shown to have about 55 million customers.
One has to wonder how profitable it can be for Sprint and T-Mobile to keep trying to suck away subscribers from AT&T and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) at any cost that can be conceived. Price wars are great for consumers, but not necessarily for the companies involved. If one of the companies were to run into a serious financial issue, then regulators might be unable to say they still want four major wireless carriers.
T-Mobile was recently trading at $32.35, within in a 52-week trading range of $24.26 to $35.50. Sprint has been trading at $5.09, in a 52-week range of $3.79 to $9.76. T-Mobile has a consensus analyst price target of $37.00 and Sprint has a consensus price target of $7.28. Comparatively, T-Mobile has a market cap of $26 billion, versus Sprint and its market cap of $20 billion.
So basically the short-sighted FCC needs one to really flounder before realizing they weakened telecom USA just to expand the consumer price range...VZ and T haven't lowered rates...so the majority of the consumers aren't that price sensitive, or feel that pricing is already at an affordable level. Plus there are already much cheaper options for the extremely budget conscious...what was the FCC thinking?
Another ascending triangle formation forming. Look for tightening of range over the next few days to stay above 50dma. A move to close above 5.23 will confirm impending breakout towards 200dma, at least ~5.80.
