    bro, I don't want to see anyone lose there house. Here's the deal, assets are valuable, but the company needs to be able to monetize them.
    Vendors and employees can't be paid in bricks of a building; they need cash. They are burning through what they have now at an alarming rate. Their margins are shrinking and they have been pumping "productivity gains" since forever.
    The company is being thrown in too many directions at once to recover and begin generating positive cash flow to support its operations. Even if they were to chunk off their stores they still have an unbelievable amount of debt to pay down from continuing to support their failing business before they could return any cash to share holders.
    This is a quick summary of this disaster of a company. There are many more reasons that this company is failing.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    It's certainly true that it is just a stock, but this is an internet stock message board, so let's play. The company cannot continue with the same "c" level people and expect better results. The CFO departure could shake things up some but with the rest of the high level officers and board of directors in place nothing will change. The company's assets are certainly valuable but if management can't deliver to the shareholders or even keep the company afloat itself, it doesn't seem like this is a good investment, at least not now. Maybe when the company is a little closer to the brink then it might get bought out at a rock bottom price or unfortunately for shareholders, not get bought out and just end in bankruptcy, with all the debt the company has shareholders will get nothing (they generally don't anyway).

  • I've been in and out of this company over the last several years. Now I'm out for good. The company seems to be managed on par with the bluth company. The latest round of poor management was firing their CFO who sounds like he shouldn't have been there in the first place. Add to that the constant "weather related" earning misses the delays in the FTC review which I'm sure had to do with the reason the CFO "resigned", the suspension of the dividend and the outrageous executive compensation package in their proxy. The company might one day be able to make some money if it stops tripping over itself but it's not something that looks like it will happen in the near future.

    At least you didn't pick up some call options like me right before they made this announcement :-).

    I really do think the company is pretty damn good though. If AMZN can skyrocket making zero profits and just showing a ton of growth year after year I think T-mobile could be treated in a similar manner over the next few years at least with what they are doing with their business.
