    ...the 100 Softbank Top Gun tech engineers mean business...the transformation to world class best is clearly underway.....

    ....sounds like Sprint is going to have a number of show piece markets.....100Mbps is rockin' and rollin'

  • (Reuters) - A U.S. bankruptcy judge on Tuesday said he will approve a plan by RadioShack Corp RSHCQ.PK to sell 1,740 of its stores to the Standard General hedge fund, which plans to operate most of them in conjunction with Sprint Corp (S.N).

    The ruling ends a hotly-contested, four-day hearing in which RadioShack’s largest creditor, Salus Capital Partners, opposed the sale. RadioShack has said it hopes to close the sale by Wednesday to avoid paying April rent.

    (above is relevant, comments from aqua, aka whadda aka jugs, team rep and other loons here, irrelevant)

    sure aquaman, the Bloomberg Intelligence recent study shows that Sprint's 2.5GHz spectrum may be worth 86 to 115 Billion dollars ......or about 21 to 28 dollars per share...this 2.5 valuation issue came up AGAIN at the CCA Global conference just last week in comments by the CEO....look, I can't help it if something which has on-going relevance isn't convenient to your bashing activities.....that doesn't sound like my problem....it does sound like yours....

    by the way, the topic is relevant versus irrelevant, it's analysts and industry people who keep asking about this 2.5GHz valuation....I don't see how that's the "CEO words"...and it's Bloomberg Intelligence's study.......I just find that you mischaracterize EVERYTHING to suit your bashing agenda..that's why you get called on the carpet so much.....

    and by the way aqua, I don't say that "watch and learn" just offhand...I really do think you need to re-evaluate your whole investment philosophy and understanding of investment basics...for instance you said the same thing at $2....you said it was going to zero.....well, many of us were buying at $2 and took the SB buyout deal.......so I disagree with how you are characterizing "mistakes" and timeframes.......you invent your own self-serving parameters and then claim victory...it's more than a little bit nutty.......

    three long-winded paragraphs with spin added, to state what could be said in a sentence....why not just admit again you are paid to bash the stock...THAT is relevant to your slanted misleading misinformed posts.......remember when I pushed you on this before...and you ADMITTED to being paid to be here.....

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 Mar 29, 2015 1:28 PM Flag

    ...another differentiator is content....note the comments of Claure in the recent CCA Global regarding content and consolidation.......a large content deal by SB might be an interesting possibility........especially considering SB's other interests.......read the list of the top ten media companies and see what is possible and who is already engaged......

    ....and my best guess is that at some point Sprint and TMUS will make another go at getting a nod from the FCC......I think Sprint's and TMUS's marketing efforts since the last attempt...and some clarity (at least for the FCC) on the 2 big mergers already in front of them.......possibly puts S/TMUS in a different light......

    ..one can of course add the relevance of "scorecard" items.......and trends are more important than a one-off number.....subscriber numbers are a key metric.....the quality of subscriber within that metric also key......but frankly, if Sprint takes care of the network, the subscribers will follow........

    ..Noteworthy in this is DT's wish to exit the US market, and not willing to invest in the T-Mobile network....

    Most of what is posted here on this message board is irrelevant at best and lunacy at worst. There are a number of serial offenders here who in long-winded posts consider they know more than the CEO of Sprint and Softbank, and more than the best tech people in the industry.

    Present relevant issues:

    1) Radio Shack BK hearing possibly wraps up Monday - possible 1700 more retail locations for Sprint
    2) LightSquared BK exit plan just won court approval - LS likely to again want JV with Sprint
    3) CEO at CCA Global - note interesting comments on content, consolidation, 600 Auction, LTE Roaming
    4) Rootmetrics results show Sprint Network improvement, effectiveness of Softbank tech reps now in US
    5) Bloomberg Intelligence evaluates Sprint 2.5 Spectrum value at 86 to 115 Billion dollars
    6) Enhanced Value of 2.5 is rooted in new tech - carrier aggregation and ability to pair 2.5 (unlink/downlink)

    That's what is going on now (that we know of), and can be viewed in the context of the big picture turnaround for Sprint which includes the brand new network put in place over the last 4 years, Softbank's purchase of 80% of Sprint, Softbank's goals, and a communications industry wherein traditional roles and relationships are blurring and changing. The inherent value in Sprint is highly relevant within that big picture.

    please tell me you are really not this clueless, examples in the market abound of unrecognized value....look how long it took the market to appreciate the baba stake within yahoo...get a clue loser

    what, did you finally post something sensible....law of averages was in your favor on that though.....

  • greekmonster101 by greekmonster101 Mar 27, 2015 12:48 PM Flag

    Consolidated here from my recent posts:

    "the moron crew here (ie Teamrep) and others always overcomplicate and misrepresent everything ...fact is there are accepted formulas for calculating spectrum value...it's clearly not all "the same".....but the 2.71 value per MHz pop IS the published average for AWS-3...and 2.5 now acts like 1.9.....Claure reiterated this just yesterday at CCA Global...watch the video.....he also said that in the upcoming 600 auction, spectrum might not sell for as much.....a lot has to do with auction rules...again watch the video and get yourself more informed so you don't look so foolish.....no offense, just tired of your arrogant spewing of misinformation.....".

    "..you can add to this that Bloomberg Intelligence has evaluated Sprint's 2.5GHz holdings...which is 120MHz+ in over 90% of the top 100 US markets....at worth between 86 to 115 Billion dollars.......so my calculation (done prior to the Bloomberg Intelligence numbers coming out) were conservative........point is this is a real asset...real value.......again Claure touched on this as well at CCA.......do the due diligence and be more informed......listening to fools is not a substitute for knowing what's going on......btw, "Bloomberg Intelligence" is NOT an "Article" as the morons have said....."

    they're called value buyers ...like the CEO buying 5 Million shares....like Orbis buying 69 Million shares last quarter...like Dodge and Cox now holding 96 Million shares (adding 33 Million just last quarter) ...and Norges Bank now holding 101 Million shares.........that's who is "propping it up"......LOL....if you had a clue you would at least have something

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 Mar 26, 2015 10:13 AM Flag

    yes, most here have little clue when it comes to spectrum, or are woefully misinformed......the key factor in valuation of course is Value per MHz pop, and in this the AWS-3 auction greatly surprised.....the value averaged 2.71.....which is well above the 2.00 value I used in posting this calculation...

    ...some of the new key factors are ability to pair 2.5GHz and carrier aggregation.......the latter causes 2.5 to perform more like 1.9........

  • greekmonster101 by greekmonster101 Mar 25, 2015 1:03 AM Flag

    Other factors beyond a strict Operational view:

    1) the inherent value in Sprint such as the massive Spectrum position...ie. Bloomberg Intelligence's evaluation that 2.5 GHz alone is worth 86 to 115 Billion, even a conservative fraction of that evaluation puts Sprint easily worth 4x the current price....

    2) that a trapped value situation such as with Sprint is not only to Sprint's benefit to unlock, but to other's as well....in other words Sprint is not operating in a vacuum....when value is this compressed, merger partners see that reorganization can unlock that value to their great benefit.....

    3) the reason Sprint is not already merged with TMUS is purely political...the 2016 election is an opportunity where that can easily change with a Republican administration......you can bet that right now Hedge funds are making a list of companies that will benefit if Republicans take the White House...Sprint is at the top of that list.....
