mmorris, a lot of information there on the Sprint investor site. Do you want to ask the Magic 8 Ball a question about Sprint?
SpecEd, you seem grumpy, is this your typical temperament or is something troubling you. It was the "4x" portion of your post that generated my comment about your math skills. With most of you basher-types I typically only read to the first inaccuracy, negative spin or illogic, since reading further, from my experience, only degenerates into a further plunge into layer upon layer of illogic and misrepresentation. So that means I usually only read one sentence. It's a real time saver for me. So I apologize profusely if you indeed stated something of a sound and factual nature in the balance of your post, and frankly thinking about it now, the odds are great on a law of averages basis, that eventually you would do so.
With a smartphone or tablet in hand, you listen to your favorite song, get directions to a restaurant or share a video that has everybody talking. Most people tap a touchscreen and think little more about how their app is working with a wireless network.
That’s just the way we like it. We know our customers value an experience when the information or entertainment they want is a simple click away. Behind the scenes, though, our teams at Sprint make that great experience possible by taking a responsible, thoughtful and vigilant approach that balances access and security.
Vulnerability of connected devices like phones, cars, and even airplanes against an Internet attack has been in the news recently, and as a wireless network provider responsible for moving data between devices, we thought we’d explain our network approach.
Sprint’s network is built to support an open Internet for its customers, developers and device manufacturers. By “open” we mean that we do not block lawful Internet traffic or protocols. We do not restrict access to applications and content, nor do we prioritize one content provider’s traffic over another. This approach spurs innovation and gives businesses and consumers the ability to connect to whatever services, information, and entertainment they choose.
“Sprint bends over backwards to help,” Clark says. “Troubleshooting is easy, and they address problems quickly. I’m glad its network is performing so well because for Rocco Fiore to win, we have to communicate wirelessly quickly and effectively in the office and with managers and field employees.”
Pct. ratings “poor”: 14.7%
Wireless service provider T-Mobile’s customer service reputation took a serious hit this year, causing it to make the Hall of Shame for the first time. This year, 14.7% of respondents rated the company’s service as poor. While roughly 63% of respondents rated the company’s service positively last year, the rate dropped to 58.3% this year.
The company appears to have overtaken Sprint as the third-largest wireless carrier in the country, and while it might make up for being a runner-up to frontrunners AT&T and Verizon with exceptional customer service, it also struggles in that department, as well as in other metrics. In the most recent report by Rootmetrics, the gold standard measure of network services, T-mobile ranked dead last for reliability by a considerable margin.
Making the list for the third consecutive year, AT&T is yet another cellular service provider with waning customer satisfaction. Nearly 19% of customers surveyed rated their experience with the company as poor, a slight jump from last year’s figure of 17.5%. This is bad news for the over 120 million consumers who choose AT&T.
The company’s business practices have recently caught the attention of federal authorities. The Federal Communications Commission reported last month its intention to fine the telecom giant $100 million for misleading subscribers of its so called “unlimited data” plan. According to a an FCC press release, AT&T significantly reduced data speeds for those customers. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said the Commission was taking action because consumers were “deceived by misleading marketing materials and insufficient disclosure.”
Along with deceitful sales practices, AT&T does not appear to provide the same level of coverage as other cellular service providers. According to testing by Rootmetrics, AT&T fell behind Verizon, its chief competitor, in five out of six measures of network speed and reliability. An inferior product is bound to have a negative impact on overall customer experience.
..and as to the magnitude of the coincidence, Claure had not posted since July 24th, 3 days prior...so to Ask the question "Where is Claure?" in error to the Magic 8 Ball...and virtually simultaneous with the question, he posts to twitter.....it's quite a coincidence....
So that's good news on the 4th from the magic 8 Ball. It was a little uncanny yesterday, sir Sandoval asked a non-standard Magic 8 Ball question (not a yes/no question), along the line of "where is Claure"...you see, I had also been watching the Claure Twitter feed off and on and was looking at it at that time, and I kid you not, just moments before Sandoval posted his question, Claure posted to his twitter feed. Coincident, or the Power of the Magic 8 Ball?
Either way, we just got some good news about the 4th from the Magic 8 Ball.
"Will Sprint's turnaround finally be recognized on August 4th?"
Magic 8 Ball Response: "It is Certain"
coreym72, has asked a question: "Will Sprint's turnaround finally be recognized on August 4th?"
I will now ask the Magic 8 Ball, stay tuned.
For all the braggadocio of the Shorts and wanna-buy-lower crowd, who yip yap about going lower, the question is not where is it tomorrow or next week, you don't cover or buy shares "tomorrow" or "next week", you have to decide each day, is today the day I cover or buy. Already, you see, you could have gotten a better deal yesterday, so did you cover TODAY, did you buy TODAY?
The reason I bring this up is because too all often, the bashers, and this is especially true of the mathematically challenged crowd like jugs, they never report covering or buying, and then lo and behold, a month later with the price 100% higher, they claim to have bought or covered within a few cents of the bottom.
This became so ludicrous at one point that one mathematically inept fellow, let's call him.... jugs, swore never to cover, and began doubling down on short shares, as Sprint rose from the low $2's......if his proclamation of share purchases had any validity, the number of shares that this fellow would have been short began to approach the entire float! Double and double and double again, I'll NEVER cover he screamed. And then Sprint went to $11 and he changed his name, he called it "re-inventing" himself. And yet now, he is here claiming to have been "right"........if you are ever asked to provide a real life example of illogic and lunacy, you can always find it on the Sprint Yahoo Message Board...
..come to think of it' that's a good name for Spectrum Educated..."never mind"
yes, it's pretty hilarious...he just eviscerates this poor fellow who maybe was posting genuinely...and in his tirade he gets the math completely wrong, so his whole rant is just WRONG....it reminds me of that old Saturday night live bit...where Gilda Radner goes on this tear about something in a news commentary, and it's based on her not understanding something .........like the one......"What is all this fuss I hear about the Supreme Court decision on a "DEAF" penalty?.....deaf people shouldn't be penalized and on and on.....
....and after the tirade on it chevy chase says, it's not DEAF, it's "death penalty".... and Gilda says "never mind".....
SE, still trouble understanding this....
If starting price is $3:
100% GAIN is achieved when the price moves to $6
200% GAIN is achieved when the price moves to $9
300% GAIN is achieved when the price moves to $12
400% GAIN is achieved when the price moved to $15
If you are starting with say $6 as your base price, then:
100% GAIN is achieved at $12
200% GAIN is achieved at $18
..and let me add 4 Billion in cash which then equates to 28 Billion net debt....so the debt is not the issue shorts make it out to be...except that the market is penalizing Sprint ...apparently on a "Show me" basis... as in show me tangible results before the market will take Sprint out of the penalty box...getting not fair value for any of it's assets, the ongoing enterprise....
b.san, yes, that is correct, and this has been one contention I have had....Sprint is not even getting credit in the share price for the CLWR acquisition....Sprint is so wildly undervalued...I reiterate...Sprint is THE single most undervalued big name brand asset in the market today.......
40 Billion spectrum (Bloomberg Intelligence says worth 86 to 115 Billion for 2.5 alone)
20 Billion network assets
57 million payng customers
backing of Softbank, Brightstar
Turn in subscriber trends
key position in the industry with 2.5GHZ position to take advantage of OTT and Internet of Things trends
likelihood of consolidation, numerous JV's
Do your own DD, but it's crazy undervalued
ahem, hey math challenged Spectrum educated, if you are going to try to "school" someone, you should at least get your basic math right....LOL....what a tool.....a 200% GAIN from $3 is $9...not "4X".......you don't change the initial starting price mid the calculation......you have a bad habit of speaking arrogantly, yet you don't know what you are talking about......just basic stuff...come on man....do better
$12, by the way, would be a 300% gain, starting at $3
