give me a break, "uncontested"......it's just a meaningless term...I was giving you the benefit of the doubt......you must be the luckiest person alive...because if you were depending on trading knowledge...you would be beyond broke...maybe you are......
loboosh, trust me, based on your knowledge level, it is dangerous for you to be trading stocks.......
In fact, the RootMetrics results show that Sprint’s overall call quality is actually better than T-Mobile’s in many areas and is virtually equal to the coverage that is provided by AT&T. The reality is, while T-Mobile may have devoted considerable resources to improving its network reputation over the last couple of years, the broader coverage it provides in many rural areas is still seriously lacking.
See the graph posted on Claure's twitter feed, T-Mobile is serious behind on call quality......
1) SB can't buy more than 25% of the daily volume, so adjust your calculator
2) the share are hardly "uncontested", SB has not been able to near the 25%, in some cases a much smaller percentage, from the way it's trading there is a lot of accumulation going on...remember Dodge&Cox bought 55 million shares just last quarter, now 172 Million shares....
if you listened to the last cc of Sprint and SB you wouldn't ask that...do your own DD and don't be fooled....
Sprint announces it will add 1,050 jobs in Chicago by end of 2016
Sprint said Tuesday it would add 750 jobs throughout Chicago by the end of 2016 on top of the 300 new jobs in Chicago it committed to in March..
Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined Sprint leaders including CEO Marcelo Claure for a news conference announcing the jobs at the Loews Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.
In March, Sprint said it expected to invest $45 million in network infrastructure in line with plans to make Chicago its first city upgraded to an LTE Advanced network, which would allow for high-speed mobile downloads. On Tuesday, it revised its estimate to $150 million over the next two years in Chicago.
The latest jobs will include positions for retail workers, wireless experts and network technicians and engineers. Sprint currently has 800 employees and more than 160 stores across Chicagoland
MW, this is my all-time favorite post of yours....."Masa Son, Avid Sportsman and newly minted Bear Trapper...."......marvelous.....
In the end it is about utilization of Spectrum, it is about network quality...if anyone is interested in Sprint they should listen to Softbank and Sprint's last cc's...must-listen events...info-packed
could a basher check to see if these items have been accounted for in the list of 53?
Sprint is ahead of schedule on the 1.5 Billion in cost cuts for this year
Sprint has another additional 1.5 Billion in cost cuts for next year
Sprint with Softbank will remove additional costs from the model with a Handset Leasing company, so to make handsets a neutral cash flow item
Sprint may do the same with network equipment
Son in his Softbank CC talked about how a similar program was used at the time of the Vodafone acquisition, which started with a higher debt/ebitda ratio than Sprint, Sprint will be brought to a 1:1 debt to ebitda ratio
The fact that Brightstar is also a Softbank company affords Sprint big advantages regarding handset purchases and handset disposition
The next gen upgrades also will take opex out of the model
You can add in the likelihood of any number of joint ventures and MVNO's, both traditional and non-traditional, which will get Sprint's 2.5GHz spectrum in to use and add to the bottom line
even the bashers love this post as they secretly think jugs went too far with his lies.......I think jugs pays teamrep......jugs are you paying teamrep to post...teamrep won't say
I stand by this comment, note the market action of late,...seems to agree......SO much value in Sprint 2.5GHz spectrum...do you own due diligence so not to be fooled by many bashers/haters here
search term: shortie watch out, shortie don't cry......SB will be still buying.....when Santa comes to town ...(based on likelihood of being able to get about 2 million shares per day as the public float dwindles).....
do not underestimate what Sprint can do with SB and Brighstar at their side.....it's all part of the plan...bashers want to wish it away like those relationships and advantages don't exist...well, let me tell you, they do exist..they are REAL...and they are part of the Sprint advantage...
profitability into focus as per the last cc.....and value like this cannot be ignored.....bashers will they ever learn.....answer...no
the market agrees...Sprint is hanging in there as the market crumbles.....and all jugs is left with is a handful......of excuses
DISASTER.....to have called Sprint the greatest she sure-fire short, the can't miss trade of a lifetime..and what happened, the market went kaploooey and Sprint went UP up and UP....up today while market down 302 now....this is not what basher-lowlife's wanted...in fact it's a disaster...Sprint going to $8-$12 will make it worse...much worse
...one can almost hear the thump-crash of basher fists hitting computer screens...preceded by worried hand-wringing as they peer into the abyss.....
isn't it about time for papertrader jugs to tell us he covered at $3.20?
search term: unhappy bashers boom cheap used computer screen sales
