    He said he made 100k. So I assume he sold his position when he had 100k gain.

    Sprint's future is not T-Mobile...it's SoftBank

    I don't believe Masa Son is going to let T-mobile survive the price war. Masa knows that Sprint will need to get T-Mobile off it's back so that he can fight with AT&T and Verizon. I am speculating that he is going to use Spark network to fight with these big boys. But before he can deal with them, I bet he wants to get rid of the weakest competitor.. Masa Son appears gentle but he is a fierce competitor. He wants to be #1. He picked his chief to start the battle and to put an end to T-Mobile. There will be no mercy for T-mobile. Lastly, there will be no suitable telecomm company willing to step into a price war with SoftBank....especially after Alibaba's IPO. US regulators made it clear for AT&T and Verizon to stay away from T-Mobile. So what telecomm company is brave enough to buy T-Mobile if SoftBank declares a price war? T-Mobile is going have a tough time finding a buyer willing to infuse cash to battle SoftBank. What company wants to buy T-Mobile if they see that T-mobile subscribers have no loyalty to the company and switched to lower plan offered by Sprint? Sprint is getting ready for a fierce war but T-Mobile doesn't have the capital to survive the price war. I put my money on Mr. Maya Son to win this war.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • The reason of wanting to buy T-Mobile was to get rid of the weakest competition the easy way. Merge to get rid of the competition. Now that Sprint can't join T-Mobile,it is simply going to compete on the open market by launching a price war. As long as SoftBank is funding Sprint, Sprint can outlast T-Mobile and make DT withdraw from US market once it runs of cash to compete. T-Mobile will be forced to file a bankruptcy if DT abandons T-Mobile. It may take few years but eventually Sprint will get most of price conscious T-Mobile subscribers to abandon and switch over to Sprint's lower price plan. The current T-Mobile subscribers are not loyal to a carrier...they are loyal to saving money. Masa Son knows that and for that reason hired an aggressive bandit like Macelo Claure to start the war and knock T-Mobile out of the competition. Maya Son has hired the right CEO to make John Legere think twice about bad mouthing Sprint. It will be an interesting battle between two CEOs. But ultimately price war is won by the company with more cash.....that's Sprint...thanks to SoftBank.

    As long as SoftBank is supporting Sprint, Sprint can squeeze T-Mobile out of business by doing a price war. T-Mobile doesn't have the cash to compete with Sprint. Masa Son was trying to diplomatically make it into 3 carriers in USA, but now he is going to use $20 billion (the money he was planning to buy T-Mobile) to go on a price war with T-Mobile and wipe out T-Mobile the old fashion way....cash.

    If I was Mesa, I would form a partnership with Dish so that lifeline of T-mobile is cut off. After Dish partnership, cut the price so that T-Mobile can't survive if they have to match the price. Since T-Mobile doesn't have subscribers on a contract, it allows current subscribers to jump to Sprint instantly. At the end of price war, there will be 3 major carriers in USA....T-Mobile will not be one of them and John Legere will learn his lesson for bad mouthing Sprint.

    Paid by Masa? Funny. If you think you can do better than Masa while don't you put your billions into this company and run the way you like it. If you don't have billions, then get out Sprint investment. There no reason to be invested in a company where you no faith in the leadership. If SoftBank wasn't backing up Sprint right now, I wouldn't be investing in Sprint. Getting rid of Dan Hesse was the best move Masa Son has made. I believe in Masa's leadership and have accumulated more Sprint at this price. Sprint purchased CLWR for $5 ...it's no brainier that Sprint is currently oversold. Instead of taking advantage at this price, you rather complain about how Masa is running the company? Think what's in front of your eyes if you want your Sprint investment to pay off.

    Bingo...Black Friday sale has arrived for Sprint. It's no brainier to accumulate at this level.

  • Marcelo Claure is not going that let John Legere bad mouth Sprint anymore. Marcelo is going to knock John's teeth out and give him a pink gummy smile to match his pink t-shirt. Masa Son hired Marcelo to put John Legere in his right place....it's time for immature John to go to his corner for time out; otherwise, he is going to get his long overdue beating.

    Price war is horrendous strategy

    Price war is needed to squash T-Mobile. The main reason why people are going to T-Mobile is because of low monthly plan. Sprint needs to either match or beat T-Mobile's current price but add unlimited regular 4G (not Spark) data plan. T-Mobile doesn't have the capital nor the vast frequency to compete with Sprint. Sprint can afford to give out unlimited data..T-Mobile can't sustain giving out unlimited data.

    Sprint has a potential to additional income by charging another $10 premium for smart phones capable of utilizing Spark Network. It's capable of delivering peak wireless speeds of 60Mbps. That's faster than my current home Fios internet service! I would be willing to pay unlimited Spark internet service for my house if it's cheaper than Fios. Sprint needs to make public aware of difference between Sprint Spark and T-Mobile LTE. Make commercials of showing slow T-Mobile LTE vs super fast Spark. Show a commercial showing that there is another alternative to Fios. Imagine if Sprint offers unlimited Spark data bundle for home internet and smart phone data for $99. I bet lots of people will leave other 3 carriers to sign up for Spark bundle. Sprint's Spark network is going to be a big threat for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Cox Communications, and Comcast. None of the competitors are able to compete with fast wireless Spark network. Sprint is only 2 years away from making this happen nationwide. http://newsroom.sprint.com/presskits/sprint-spark.htm

    What's wrong with being at this price? Sprint is having early Black Friday sale. Love it when goes on sale! Sell if you are having a panic attack. Buy more if you are bullish.

    What did you do to make 100k off that deal? What is your strategy to make another 100K from this event?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • If I recall correctly, I believe Sprint was trading around $8 before it popped above $10 as the result of T-Mobile merger news leaked end of last year. The current price of $5.60 is a reaction of being oversold. Should see Sprint back to near $8. Be patient and you will get rewarded.

    Sentiment: Hold
