    Moody's probably didn't connect the dots;
    Mothership SoftBank.... Who we all know owns 80% of S and the master himself holds a 34% stake in BABA , who btw is up a astounding 20% since the IPO ...Sprint is in good hands...

  • Rating Action: Moody's downgrades Sprint's CFR to B1 with negative outlook
    Global Credit Research - 17 Dec 2014
    New York, December 17, 2014 -- Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") downgraded several ratings of Sprint Corporation ("Sprint" or "the company") including the company's Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") to B1 from Ba3, the company's Probability of Default Rating ("PDR") to B1-PD from Ba3-PD, Sprint's senior unsecured rating to B2 from B1 and lowered the company's Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating to SGL-3 from SGL-1. Moody's also assigned a Ba1 rating to Sprint's existing $3.3 billion revolving credit facility. Today's rating action reflects our expectation that intense competitive challenges and Sprint's limited ability to respond effectively will lead to a sustained period of very weak earnings and cash flow. Consequently, leverage is likely to increase, which when coupled with negative pressure on cash flow from installment billing plans and its phone leasing option, is expected to lead to a steady deterioration in Sprint's liquidity position. Sprint's rating outlook is negative reflecting what we believe to be limited ability to reverse current trends in the foreseeable future.

    BABA Knocking on 109

    So chronic manipulator, Cooperman sold out and closed his total position in Sprint?

  • Ting, a Sprint (NYSE: S) mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) partner, is building its own 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) by purchasing Charlottesville, Va.-based Blue Ridge InternetWorks (BRI).

    Initially, the focus will be on bringing services to customers in the Charlottesville market. According to a Washington Post report, Ting will provide 1 Gbps service for about $100 a month, and expects to hook up around 12,000 homes in Charlottesville beginning in the first quarter of next year.

    In a blog post, Ting said that it wants to appeal to local customers by applying the same level of customer service in Charlottesville that it had done in delivering its wireless service.

    "In short, BRI and Ting are beautifully aligned: We both believe in a hands-off approach to the Internet at large and a hands-on approach to customer service," wrote Andrew Moore-Crispin, senior content manager at Ting. "Together, we think we can bring home Internet subscribers in Charlottesville the sort of shockingly human experience and fair, honest pricing that our mobile phone subscribers have appreciated so much these past couple of years (love you guys)."

    While Charlottesville is the first market, the service provider indicated that it would explore the possibility of looking at other communities.

    Taking a page out of Google Fiber's (NASDAQ: GOOG) "fiberhood" playbook, Ting has encouraged consumers to express their interest in having them bring fiber to their town by telling them on their Internet page.

    Dish and Netflix news.....

    Tr... sprint will never be more then a stronger # 3 in wireless w/o as you often stated innovation... And IMO innovation leans towards mergers and/ or partnerships with other business's like Dish... sprint and TMUS will get crumbs from the fleeing low hanging fruit at T and VZ.... Assuming T and VZ move away from 'price war back and forth and realign efforts on network expansions etc..big blue and big red are called the duopoly for the obvious .....and for sprint to sit around and hope the Feds might have a change of heart regarding 3 and 4 merging if a new administration is voted in is wasted effort....Claure needs to keep pressing while Mr Son finds the right fit for his huge American bet....

    Dish and Netflix news.....

    Sprint Dish Google Netflix...... Nah....

  • This looks interesting... Charlie's no shrinking violet for sure....
    Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) is the first major pay-TV operator to integrate the Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) app into its set-tops, announcing Wednesday that second-generation versions of its Hopper DVR currently enable the SVOD service.

    Users of second-generation Hoppers can access Netflix programming alongside their linear TV channel guide, provided the set-top is connected to broadband. Dish said it will announce Netflix availability for its Joey client devices at a later date.

    The integration of Netflix into the living rooms of Dish customers comes as Netflix is making a concerted push to partner with major pay-TV operators. Through its partnership with set-top maker TiVo, the SVOD service already has entry into the subscriber bases of smaller operators, including Atlantic Broadband, RCN and Grande Communications.

    "Pairing Netflix with Hopper represents the consolidation of two incredible video experiences," said Vivek Khemka, Dish senior VP of product management, in a statement. "This app integration eliminates the need to switch television inputs to access content on varying devices. It gives our customers easy access to their favorite shows and movies, on both Dish and Netflix, without ever having to leave their Hopper."

    "As the first major pay-TV provider in the U.S. to add the Netflix app to its set-top box, Dish strengthens an already robust video entertainment experience for its customers," said Bill Holmes, global head of business development at Netflix. "Many households subscribe to both Netflix and a traditional pay-TV service. Our vast library of TV shows and movies, combined with DISH's lineup of live television content, gives customers easy access to a wide variety of complementary programming."

    SB and Son made a huge bet on Sprint... I'm sticking with Mr Son's comments regarding his turnaround timing... 4 more sprint earnings reports will round out his 2 year timeline. Make no mistake about this, EACH report needs to SHOW measurable improvements....if not, well goodbye and good luck Mr Son....

    I'd really like to know what's going on with Ergen and Son....

  • It would be great if Verizon were gaining market share, but for that to happen, Sprint and T-Mobile will need to stop their price war. How might that come about? Both of the smaller players are losing money.

    Thus, it might eventually occur to regulators that it would be better for the two of them to merge into a third, well capitalized competitor (something Sprint tried to bring about earlier this year).

    This would surely be preferable than to have both wither and potentially fade, losing money and market share and leaving the U.S. with Verizon-AT&T duopoly.

    Or T-Mobile or Sprint’s foreign overlords, Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) and Softbank (SFTBY) respectively, might discreetly nudge their subsidiaries to revert to a rational pricing model and operate profitably in an unspoken but convenient collusion.

    Short sellers have been right about Sprint for most of 2014, but with a short interest ratio of 15.22, it would take more than three weeks of buying for shorts to exit their bets against this stock. That makes it a prime short squeeze candidate, even if it's one you should own a smaller piece of.

    So, from your perspective... the term 'oversold' is more then a opinion ?

    so, while AT&T and VZ exacerbates....Jugs the Jihadist m a s turbates......tisk tisk.....

    However, Goldman analysts believe Sprint's aggressive marketing strategy is exacerbating disconnects at AT&T and Verizon as these two hold the line on price as a preferred alternative to re-pricing their base...

  • so, Marcelo is making a difference.....

    For 4Q14, we estimate 15k net postpaid phone losses, previously -115k, and for 2015, we estimate 507k net postpaid phone adds, previously -243k. The driver of our improved outlook is higher phone gross adds, due principally to elevated churn at AT&T (T) and Verizon Communications (VZ) ," Goldman said.

    Some of the churn at competitors is seasonal and related to iPhone contract expirations. However, Goldman analysts believe Sprint's aggressive marketing strategy is exacerbating disconnects at AT&T and Verizon as these two hold the line on price as a preferred alternative to re-pricing their bases in order to hold onto their most value-conscious subscribers.

    Analysts, therefore, expect Sprint's combination of "generous" data plans, smartphone leasing and price undercutting to drive a meaningful improvement in Sprint's postpaid phone subscriber share.
