    Son commented recently that he is typically 2 years in front of everyone else in seeing what's coming......agree with a lot of what you said...except the bashers, I DO fault them since they are criminally irresponsible in the spreading of misinformation.....I don't buy that it's just misinformed....they are attempting to spread misinformation for their own purposes or paycheck....all I can say is karma is a beeeatch when it comes to misleading people about money......

    ...AND you can add to that some administrative's a BIG deal...bottom line this model plus the in-progress cost cuts and additional cuts for 2016 are going to allow Sprint to reduce debt to debt/ebitda 1:1.....which in turn saves a lot of money in debt service (basically reduces costs about 400 Million per quarter).........Sprint is going to be VERY profitable just on that basis .... THEN you toss in JV's to get to full utilization of 2.5GHz and Sprint starts to look like a growth stock that is also paying a big dividend ( as Son said in his last cc, he expects Sprint will be one of two major cash drivers for SB)

    you sound more and more like a T-Mobile T-Mobile paying you to post......because it sounds like something they would do based on their network moving to last in the country and just how spotty and poor it is......yet you are always a little fan boy aren't you

    let me simplify what takes douche-paid-by-the-word team rep three errant clueless paragraphs to's a cash flow issue.....1) it IS very important and valuable (not "over-hyped") because Leasing is becoming the de-facto way to have a phone, Sprint apparently going fully to this model soon....2) as this becomes the main way to have a phone, it ramps up the number of leases....add in shorter lease turnarounds (as in iPhone forever wherein literally you could have the customer turning the leased phone in for upgrade a month later) it causes a ramp up of cash burn, 20 Mil phones for instance at 700 per phone is 14 Billion also applies to the network equipment lease company you really want 20 Billion out of the cash flow....that money becomes "parked" for a really long time...... rep as usual doesn't know what he's talking about....he paints distinctions where there is no difference and in general is illogical and clueless...anything he says is designed to say "Sprint is bad" because SOMEONE (he won't say who) is PAYING him to post...shame on you teamrep for deceiving people.....

    mw, and I tell you I think Dish is in serious need of some more reliable way of delivering OTT....because the longer I have Sling TV...the more I see what a mess it's SO glitchy....I'm going to be cancelling crashes...sometimes you can't even watch CNN or ESPN or other starts buffering...and I have none of those issues with Netflix or other apps...even Bloomberg as a separate app works just fine on Roku...but on Sling TV it's a mess at times......

    ....odd part is, sometimes it works ok, then acts up......really unreliable......and has been getting worse in the last 2 point is that Dish has no real solution for anything with Sling TV or anything similar because if they are to bet the farm on something like that, forget it....and I don't know if the problem is with cable providers messing with the traffic priority or what......but Sling TV is a direct competitor to the cable wouldn't surprise me to find out that a cable provider supplying the broadband is somehow making like difficult for Sling TV......wouldn't surprise me at all...... Dish getting some really surefire way of delivering OTT seems perhaps vital......a partnership with Sprint would make some sense in that regard......

    Claure sets analysts straight

    take it up with Bloomberg Intelligence and their top notch analysts...they put a value of 86 to 115 Billion on the 2.5GHz spectrum alone...that's 22 to 28 dollars per share in value.....

    ...and as I have said it's the trapped value Sprint is clearly not getting value for 2.5 or other spectrum or even the value of the ongoing is truly the single most undervalued big brand name security in the market will find that out as the debt begins to be lowered to the target debt/ebitda ratio of 1:1 (as per Son in the last cc) and as the subs numbers continue to improve right along with the network.....of course by the time people like you realize the veracity of what I am saying, it will be much too late.....

    ....28M is the 10 day average....and per regulation (Sec Rule 10b-18) SB cannot buy more than 25% of the volume in a day....and they are not even getting I said, and you make my point clearly once again, trying to educate you (a moron) is difficult to don't even understand what is being said let alone the facts behind it.....

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 Sep 26, 2015 3:01 PM Flag

    ...and by the way I don't use the term psycho haphazardly....let me give you an example...the full extent and intricacies of the next gen plan is not even yet disclosed and yet team rep is out saying it won't work.....forwarding all sorts of opinion while he doesn't have the full details....THAT is what psychos do's illogic all's nuts....and it's fairly much impossible to argue with them since they spew more nuttiness or claim they are an expert and you are not.......if you are unfortunate enough to ever make the mistake of hiring such a person ...get rid of them is the only cure for the havoc they will wreak....

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 Sep 26, 2015 2:45 PM Flag

    it is beyond all reason that people here like jugs and team rep claim to know more then the engineers at Sprint and Softbank....honestly, my real opinion is these guys are psychos...and they are paid by the word to post....the hiring criteria was...can we find some idiot who a) hates Sprint and b) doesn't know enough to realize that he has no clue what he is talking walks team rep and jugs, one or two sentences later from them're hired....!!!!

    what is a waste of our time is your dull-thinking and constant negative spin borne of self-serving nonsense, dementia or has no idea how much of the volume is A to B back to A or day trades or programmed's not all accumulation.....also average volume is more like 28 million with some days a lot lower........Son can buy up to 25% in a day...and he certainly is not getting that.....look jugs...explaining stuff to you or trying to educate you on market makers or how markets a task well beyond the scope of posting here...go to school, watch and learn, get a little older where you grow up and stop being a snot-nosed moron, these things can help...otherwise skip are doomed to lose

    ...also note the real world speeds Sprint is seeing with 2x carrier aggregation....100mbps+......Sprint doesn't need it and by the time they do need it, the playing field will be entirely different due to some structural changes/JV/mergers....

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 Sep 26, 2015 1:13 PM Flag

    well before that spectrum would be usable, clearly there are going to be potential combinations and/or structural shifts, the first that comes to mind is a JV with Dish to create a wholesaling business. Based on the last Sprint and SB CC, Sprint has a very surefooted path to profitability and rapidly paying down the debt......which includes a very cost effective plan to move the network to #1 or #2 in 80% of the markets.....Sprint doesn't NEED to be the biggest carrier or do anything particularly dramatic at this point...if they focus on what they are doing which includes the advantages of the relationship with Brightstar, the fat that Claure is cutting from opex, and the assistance of SB with the handset and equipment leasing companies.....Sprint will be VERY profitable......and THAT is VERY good for shareholders....then over time JV's will take care of the rest as Sprint has the only real capacity game in town with 2.5GHz for awhile.......

    nonsense should re-evaluate your logic and your understanding of markets as both are flawed.....1) any large market always has people selling for any number of reasons that have nothing to do with the fundamentals of a stock 2) large institutional holders do not panic sell out of a stock, in the absence of SB any large seller would take longer to distribute shares..... part of your flaw in logic is attempting to draw a definitive conclusion that the price would be much lower.....seriously, not bustin' your chops, just for your own good, your logic is flawed and your concept of market dynamics/mechanics is off......figure it out spartaa or just stop being a loser troll

    I think it's also noteworthy how much effort if takes to accumulate shares based on the small public float...Softbank started buying on August 10th ....and have accumulated a little more that half the total they can buy to get them to 85%.......and remember the first half is the easiest....the public float is now much smaller....and you can see in the daily buys on the Form 4 that Softbank is now getting only in the 2 Million range per day......if Softbank is only able to accumulate 2 million per day it will take 48 trading days to get the rest.... early December.........if they average 3 million it's 32 trading days......early to mid November....

    you are SO paid by the's a like a meaningless free word association exercise with you...why don't you come clean and tell us who is paying you....

    Per the 13D filing of 8/31 there are 3,968,170,784 total shares
    Per the Form 4 out yesterday (9/25/15) Softbank now has 3,276,600,381 shares
    That equates to 82.572%
    3,372,945,166 shares equates to 85%
    Softbank can buy 96,344,785 more shares

    Check my math and my assumptions below, but those are the numbers. The recent Form 4 buys show less shares purchased each day surely reflecting the dwindling public float (now at 691 million shares). Consider also that some of these shares are held by insiders (Claure with 18 Million for instance). Consider also that with new insiders coming aboard that the next 13D will reflect a slightly higher share count which means that Softbank will be able to buy slightly more - if an insider is given a million shares, Softbank can buy 850,000 shares to stay at the 85% ratio. Also consider that the total institutional public float holdings as per the last 13F filings were 721 million shares, the top 10 public float holders had about 550 million shares and the top holder (Dodge & Cox) had 172 Million shares.

    There is a wild card in Norges Bank (holder of 102 Million shares) since as a sovereign wealth fund they report yearly and about a month or so ago it was rumored in the media that the fund might be a seller due to the issues with the Norway economy based on dropping oil prices. So if one were to speculate that there is any large seller in the market Norges Bank would be the best guess.

    Shorts have not really been a factor in selling since in the last two reports (a total of 4 weeks) they have reduced the short interest 12 million shares - note the short interest is still at 133 million shares, which of course is 133 million shares that have to be bought to cover.

    Last factor to consider would be applied game theory - the best action of each large participant assuming Softbank is going to 85%, short interest at 133 Million, top 10 concentrated ownership, Sprint structure changes to improve financials coming, etc

    very straightforward path to profitability and payment of debt....a Sprint with a debt/ebitda ration of 1:1 is a totally different company......opens the door to the dividend
