UAW leadership and members sitting back on their butts while BO and GM shipping your jobs over seas. The latest: China shipping in BUICK SUVs. You also are letting FORD build Fords in Mexico and ship into the country. Just why are you paying high dues to this union when they are not looking out for your interest.???? When I belonged I expected the union to take care of me. It is not happening with UAW. AJMHOOC........
I have run out of money. I can't buy any more. Think a little. Softbank/Papa Son, insiders and funds have accumulated right at 85% of Sprint, leaving about 100 million share on the open mkt to be traded. My crystal ball tells me that Sprint mgt will get this thing turned around. In the mean time the pps can drop farther, but once it gets turned the pps will go higher than it has been in the past few years. Big money is not going to let the fish belly up. JMO and I hope I am correct.
Counting the 85% Softbank owns;, the insiders own, institutional holdings and my count is there is less than 100 million shares available for trading on the open market. If so the slightest move up and the shorts are in terrible hot water. and would have to pay through the nose to pay their short. Something is not right with info provided to the street. MO
fun must have all of his money in S and TMUS. It looks like he is the biggest poster on both message boards. The big short squeeze is coming on both of these stock. TMUS to $72: S to $25+ jmhooc
From my computations, SB owns 85%, insiders and institutions own a very big chunk leaving not too much over 100 million shares on the open mkt. It is reported that there are over 200 million shares sold short. This tells me if news is very good in the morning and the stock was to go up substantially on that news, the shorts then needing to buy share to fill there orders the price/share could go way up. Think about it.
Buying Sprint is a much safer bet than the Casino #$%$ table. I've played them both. As a rule you cannot lose all of your money on one purchase of Sprint, you can lose everything on one roll of the dice. Today I am betting on Sprint.
With SB, individuals and institutions owning most of the common stock I do not believe the company is headed to BK, possible but I don't think so. I just bought another 1,000 shares. My bet with M & A's taking place in the wireless industry in 2016, the pps of S will hit $10/share-my bet. Shorts alone could push this up to 10.
Another thing that may be in the making with Sprint is that Papa Son will take this company private. There are not very many common shares on the open mkt today. Think. Papa Son owns 85%, insiders own a big bunch plus funds own a big bunch. This could happen.
I was at a very large mall in Virginia yesterday, Saturday, looking at the many small businesses within. Even with todays MW of $7.25/hour plus the taxes the employer must pay I could not see how in the world the small businesses could make any profit. I did talk to one mgr and he said if the MW did go up he would probably have to close. MW is great if the employer like Wal Mart, Gen. Motors, Target raise their starting wage, this is great, they know they can pay it. When gov't mandates wages and benefits it is a job and business killer.
I was shocked also yesterday I heard Ralph Nader state that he approved gov't mandated benefits. Poor fellow must not have taken ECON 101 in college. The course tells you how bad gov't is. mo
From what I have read on the internet, some estimate the value of Sprint's spectrum, retail stores and the wireless branch well over 50 billion dollars. I don't think Papa Son will let this company go BK.
Softbank own now 85%, insiders own a bunch and institutions own a bunch. There is probably less than 100 million shares on the mkt that can be traded. The number of shorts is questionable. The way I see it the pps can skyrocket or at the same time if mgt does not do right the pps can go to pennies. My bet it will go to 10 in the not too distant future.
Just looking at the facts that surround Sprint, SB owns about 85%, insiders own a lot and funds own a lot, imo BK is not the order of the day. I am long and I have no more to invest. Imo the pps can go down to pennies, but at the same time the pps could go to a hundred. My best guess it will go to at least 10. Just remember, investing in the stock mkt, you can lose all that you invest. You should never bet the rent or grocery money.
Illogical that stock holders will owe a big tax bill. Someone might. U. S. corporation tax-about 35%, Ireland corporation tax-about 6.5% Why should any corporation want to stay in the U. S. The first big company to realize they could make more money outside of the country: 1946 Singer Sewing Machine left. Why? Taxes, rules, regulations, minimum wage and unions. To date they ain't come back.
MO. I have invested big chunk of my retirement money into both Sprint and TMUS. My bet that both are going to make stock holders a bunch of money. One analyst says TMUS is worth $72/share. Another analyst says that Sprint can go either way: up or down: down to pennies or up to $100.. Softbank, insiders and funds own over 85% of Sprint. I cannot see how it will go to the pennies. My bet is it will go up
