SB and Son are serious partners in Sprint Corp. You just don't step up and place BILLIONS of dollars into a merger and then spend MILLIONS more buying shares on the open market without a game plan. IMO, Sprint will be a growth stock for the next 18-24 months as investors gain confidence in Mr Son and his business savvy.. Charlie Ergen is lucky to be associated with SB and he knows it....
Excerpt from 'all things digital' here; Initially the service will be offered in just one area — Corpus Christi, Texas — though there is a plan to expand to other areas if the trial goes well. Dish will install the service, using either a ruggedized outdoor router or an indoor one, with the service picking up a signal sent over the 2.5Ghz spectrum Sprint acquired from Clearwire. (Dish had also tried unsuccessfully to buy Clearwire.)
What are the. 4 explanations ? Isn't it as simple as investors are accumulating shares because they sense Mr Son is serious about growing Sprint into a competitive wireless contender?
sprint's pricing for the last two weeks;

every 10k shares would be worth 10,000 x .81....$8,100.00. My guess is most longs here hold a minimum of 50,000 shares; So, the gain on that is $40,500.00.......when you see it in writing, it seems to make more of a impression..
SB and Son bought millions of S common shares in Aug-Sept 2013 timeframe. Prices ranged from 6.28 to 7.05 I wonder how they must feeling right about now....Christmas in Japan must be a awesome experience....
yep and Sybil aka jugs Johnson, will add 20 or more aliases by then and swear that the goldman sux 4.50 price is right around the corner......Mr Margin has him on speed dial....
you create a alias one day ago and then start the subtle trashing of sprint corp. with outrageous conspiracy theories..imo of course...
Empty rumor? Trials are scheduled.....Sprint is up almost 4%Dec 17 (Reuters) - Wireless service provider Sprint Corp and satellite television company Dish Network Corp said on Tuesday they would jointly develop a fixed wireless broadband service on a trial basis in Texas using Sprint's wireless airwaves.
The agreement appeared to be a sign of thawing relations between the two after Dish tried to buy Sprint earlier this year but was beaten by Japan's SoftBank Corp, which owns 80 percent of Sprint after a bitter battle.
Dish, which has spent about $3 billion on wireless airwaves and is looking to buy more, has made no secret of seeking either a partnership or an acquisition of an existing mobile provider to help it enter the wireless market.
Sprint, for its part, has long said that it would be open to network sharing partnerships with other companies, including Dish.
They said their wireless service would be available in limited areas of Corpus Christi, Texas, in the middle of 2014 and is expected to be expanded to other markets.
Dish said it would install either an outdoor router or indoor equipment for the service, and use a high-speed technology Sprint is putting in its own network.
Sybil, phone calls holding on line 3 and line 4. Line 3 is Mr Margin. Line 4 is Dr Drew...
