    Value of Dish spectrum

    Assest speculation at play. Subtract out the value of the spectrum and what do you have. He reminds me of the Hunt brothers trying to corner the silver market. The companies which are bidding up the price of spectrum are already purveyors of spectrum, fully integrated companies. Charlie is running out of time to put his early purchases to use and had to get an extension from the FCC to make sure he did not lose access to some of his older spectrum purchases. He needs to to get a cell company, or to put his limited range satellite trial in operation. He needs the asset value to build something where he can begin collecting revenue on his investment. If the govt just continues to put bandwidth up for sale and that bandwidth is bought by the current big users doesn't it impact his real future value? In areas where home building was a great driver of the local economy big new developments always had a impact on home prices of the older homes who were in competition with the new developments. The billions he has spent are only valuable when he puts its purchases to use or are we talking about another Amazon with no profits on its investments and mounting loses. Company growth was not responsible for the increase in value. What is the time cost on the value of his investment. It will be great if he can find a partner. Interesting comment in WSJ about his current negotiations with content providers to DISH hinted that he needs them more than they need him if he wants to go to a a la carte satellite product using all that spectrum sent to phones, tablets, computers, homes. Great stock for traders. You are going to see an amazing PE before DISH settles down.
