No, I don't feel the same way. The merger is about the future, growth and increased payouts which will happen when this passes.
The SEC has responded. Now it's time for management to get this matter straightened out and behind us. Or they need to get out of the way and let someone else get the job done. Where is Carl Icahn when we need him?
As a subscriber I like Cricket's service and value. As a stock holder I definitely don't like the direction. As a relative of an employee, I think the problen is a bloated, unfocused organizatiion, that is too slow to react and respond. Merger might be the ultimate solution, because it is a tough industry. However, the cure could also be found in a new aggressive management, and a much sleeker organization, forcused on something other than the glory days ($70 stock) of the past.
