Highland Capital Management, which manages Highland Global Allocation HGLB , misstated the value of one of the fund's largest holdings, TerreStar, last year. Beyond the restatement, there's reason to question Highland's valuation of TerreStar, a privately held licensee of wireless spectrum capacity. Highland appears to have valued the firm as if it's a stable going concern.

Although the T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and Sprint Corporation (NYSE: S) merger is far from a certainty, for now investors are combing through Sprint's fourth-quarter results to see if Sprint stock still is worth getting in on.Source: Shutterstock Shareholders liked the revenue growth and postpaid net additions in 2018 and did not worry over the higher capital expenditures. Today's network capital expenditure will pay off tomorrow through higher subscriber growth and average revenue per user.In the very near future, the introduction of 5G in select cities should accelerate that subscriber growth in the next few quarters.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips Strong Fiscal 2018 and Sprint StockSprint reported operating income of $398 million, while its loss of $1.9 billion is due to a non-cash charge of $2 billion. Adjusted EBITDA was $12.8 billion. Post-paid net additions of 710,000 is an increase of 286,000 from last year's levels.Cost controls resulted in a $1.2 billion gross cost reduction of services, general and administrative expenses. For this fiscal year, the cost cuts will be offset by incremental costs related to network and customer experience initiatives.The Mobile 5G offering is through the execution of the Next-Gen Network plan. In the fourth quarter, Sprint deployed 80% of its 2.5GHz spectrum, with 30,000 outdoor small cells deployed. The 1,500 MIMO radios will increase the capabilities of its LTE network.Sprint said that a software update will give 5G service in various cities in the coming weeks. Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Kansas City are the cities that the company plans to offer 5G services first. Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. are next, with deployment set for the end of June. Fourth-Quarter Results by the NumbersPostpaid additions of 169,000 were offset by postpaid phone declining by 189,000. Total wireless additions was a net 8,000. Churn in postpaid, postpaid phone, and prepaid all rose slightly but not enough to concern investors. ARPU was mostly steady except for prepaid, which fell from $37.15 last year to $33.67.Net operating revenue from service, equipment sales, and equipment rentals all rose. And on a non-GAAP basis, Adjusted EBITDA margin rose to 55.4%, up from 47.2% last year.With numbers this strong, Sprint has potential upside even though the merger with T-Mobile is uncertain. Citi calculated a bear-case scenario where the deal would fall through and said Sprint would be worth just $3 a share. But Sprint has a manageable debt load, cut its costs and is demonstrating higher profitability. The 5G rollout will only lift ARPU and could potentially help the company accelerate subscription growth. Merger Alternatives and Sprint StockIf the Sprint/T-Mobile deal does not work out, Sprint could instead merge with Dish Networks (NASDAQ:DISH). Dish Networks would benefit from having a telecom unit in its business, diversifying the company from its pay-TV services.Markets are confident that the T-Mobile/Sprint deal will go through because the stock, at $5.79, is not far from its high of $6.61. Sprint has a valuable network of 5G, so this high-speed network is of strategic importance for T-Mobile. Because T-Mobile has the low to mid-end of the spectrum, its signal can penetrate buildings in the city. Sprint is at the other end of the spectrum and offers high-speed services.Investors could buy Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) and get a regular dividend yielding 4.26%. The stock topped over $60 a share and closed recently at $56.63. AT&T (NYSE: T) is a dominant player in the wireless space. Its stock dipped recently from over $32 down to $30.53. The stock now yields a dividend of 6.68%. Your TakeawaySo few analysts cover Sprint stock that there is no price target available from Wall Street. Conversely, the street has a 15% upside target on TMUS stock. Analysts are even more bullish on AT&T stock, setting an 18% upside target price on shares. I believe the recent dip in Sprint shares creates a compelling entry point.If the deal with T-Mobile moves forward, shareholders will get rewarded. Plus, owning a combined T-Mobile-Sprint company is worth the wait.Disclosure: As of this writing, the author did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Much like Tuesday's action, Wednesday saw a rough start for stocks. Unlike Tuesday though, the market wasn't able to make anywhere near the kind of recovery it made the day before. Yesterday, the S&P 500 fell 1.65%, putting the beginning of a bigger pullback on the radar.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Mylan (NASDAQ:MYL) led the charge, falling nearly 24% after falling short of its first-quarter revenue estimates and then serving up an outlook that failed to assure shareholders. Papa John's International (NASDAQ:PZZA) fell nearly 4% headed into its post-close earnings report, though a first-quarter beat drove the stock back to where it was in after-hours action on Tuesday evening.Although few and far between, there were some winners. The most noteworthy of them was the 9.2% advance from NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) in front of an earnings report that also revealed a buyer was interested in acquiring the company.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips None are great prospects headed into the midpoint of the week, however. Rather, the stocks charts of F5 Networks (NASDAQ:FFIV), salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) and DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH) are of the most interest. Here's why. DISH Network (DISH)When we last looked at DISH Network back on April 11, it had just broken above a minor resistance line as part of a bigger-picture turnaround. While far from complete, it was another good step toward a huge recoupment of 2017's and 2018's meltdown.DISH stock hasn't actually made any net progress since then. But, the backdrop has continued to improve, setting the stage for a breakout move that's well within sight. Click to Enlarge * The big technical hurdle cleared a little less than a month ago is the resistance line at $33.70, plotted in red, where DISH Network shares peaked in November and again in February before punching through in April. * The bigger technical ceiling is still around $36.90, plotted with a yellow line on both stock charts. That's where DISH topped before the Q4 meltdown. * The key change in the meantime is the purple 50-day moving average line's cross above the white 200-day moving average line (highlighted). This technical event suggests the beginning of at least an intermediate-term rebound move. F5 Networks (FFIV)F5 Networks shares have been trending lower, albeit erratically, since peaking in September. That's a stark difference with other names as of January. Nevertheless, the bulls have at least drawn a line in the sand, preventing matters from going from bad to worse.That effort is weakening though, with yet another test of a key support level now underway. In the shadow of a lower high and a handful of other red flags, current owners should be concerned, and potential short-sellers may want to keep close tabs on the chart. * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality Click to Enlarge * The make-or-break line is around $149.60, plotted in white on both stock charts. That level has kept the stock propped up since December. * All four key moving averages are now sloped downward, making clear that the momentum is bearish in multiple timeframes. That's a key characteristic of trends pointed in either direction. * Should the floor near $149.60 and fail to hold FFIV stock up, the next most likely downside target is around $114.80, plotted in yellow on the weekly stock chart. Salesforce (CRM)Through the latter part of 2018, Salesforce remained a story stock, driven by hope more than fundamentals. The fourth-quarter drubbing, however, appears to be something of a wakeup call. CRM stock bounced back in January and February, but the effort stalled out in a big way beginning in March.So far, it's nothing more than a pause that's well framed by recently developed support and resistance lines (plotted in white on both stock charts). Given the fact that the story stock aspect has shown new vulnerability and a trading range has formed, a break below the lower edge of that range could be the beginning of a paradigm shift … for the worst. Click to Enlarge * The lower edge of the near-term trading range currently stands at $154.80, tagging all the key lows made since March. * If the lower boundary of the trading range fails to hold the stock up, the white 200-day moving average line could still serve as support. If it fails too though, CRM may not bounce back for a second time like it did four months ago. * Zooming out to the weekly chart we also see a fresh bearish MACD convergence and a Chaikin line that's on the verge of falling below zero. Both, when seen at the same time, have historically signaled major selloffs for this particular stock.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Arguably, it's the most controversial initial public offering in recent memory. This week, Uber stock will be available to the public for trading, and why not? The ride-sharing platform has taken mainstream society by storm. Why then should the Uber IPO be any different?Source: Shutterstock Already, I see various opinions sprout up on the internet. On one hand, advocates of the Uber IPO claim that it's far superior to rival ride-sharing platform Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT). While the two look similar on surface level, Uber offers greater scale and more synergistic opportunities. Perhaps not coincidentally, LYFT stock collapsed after its debut.But on the other end of the scale, many decry Uber's painfully disruptive service. Uber directly impacts hard-working Americans serving in the taxi and transportation services. The New York Times' Farhad Manjoo called the Uber IPO a "moral stain" on Silicon Valley.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThat's sharp rhetoric coming from a major news outlet. At the same time, we can appreciate the strong sentiments. As I said, Uber stock is probably the most controversial investment of this decade. It's also going to be the most important. * 7 Stocks That Are Soaring This Earnings Season Some analysts, like Wedbush's Dan Ives, believes Uber stock will become the "Amazon of transportation." For me, that descriptor doesn't go far enough. Uber is really the Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) of life. Here are three reasons why: Uber IPO will Spike International TravelI first used the ride-sharing app here in San Diego, California, as a test run. Prior to January 30, 2019, I'd never used the Uber app.But since then, I've used the platform any time I can't or don't want to use my car. This includes rides to the airport as well as the night out in town. But my most frequent usage isn't here at home, but instead, in foreign countries.Previously, hailing a taxi in an unfamiliar environment required intimate knowledge of the area's language and customs. Now, everything is handled through the app, essentially centralizing global transportation networks. Under this arrangement, you no longer have to worry about getting ripped off from your taxi driver. It's brilliant, and it's one reason why I support the Uber IPO.Another reason? In many parts of the world, riding with Uber is safer than taking public transportation. A key example is Russia. I've always wanted to visit this country, but one thing has kept me from buying that ticket (and a visa): I'm not white.Russia has a long, complex relationship with xenophobia. Let me be clear: I'm not saying that Russia is a racist country. However, enough people believe in certain nationalistic ideologies to make travel for non-whites dangerous.With Uber, I can sidestep the metro system, where neo-Nazi thugs hang out and search for victims. It's no exaggeration to say that the Uber IPO is the practical visa that I need to visit the country.But this isn't just about avoiding racists. Indirectly, Uber stock allows people worry-free access to the global economy. That's a major development that will positively change many people's lives. Uber Stock Thrives on SynergiesAlthough I speak competently about the technology sector, in my personal life, I'm not big on technology. For instance, even though everyone around me is encouraging me to sign up, I don't have a Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) subscription. I'm still watching TV through my increasingly-outdated Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH) provider.And until I get my new ride, you can still catch me stick-shifting away on the road. You can almost say that I'm tech-deficient. In this smart-device-obsessive culture, I take that label as a compliment.Where I diverge significantly from my Luddite personality is Uber. Moreover, I'm not just a fan of the core ride-sharing component. A few months ago, I tried Uber Eats, the company's food-delivery service. Like the ride-sharing app, Eats was quick, convenient, and relatively cheap.Of course, these services aren't necessarily cheap on an absolute basis. But depending on your circumstances, they may represent great value. If you don't have any food in your fridge, going out to eat takes time. In the gig economy in which many Americans ply their trade, time is money. Therefore, saving time saves money.Plus, millennials love food-delivery services, which bolsters the case for the Uber IPO. Younger workers, despite not earning as much, favor experiences over attaining stuff. Uber, Lyft, and similar companies have become ingrained in youth culture. That trend will only rise as the emerging Generation Z takes over the wheel. And Yes, It's the Amazon of TransportationAfter spending so much time on how the Uber IPO will change the world, its ride-sharing platform seems an afterthought. But it's not just the company's international presence and tremendous scale that impresses me. Rather, Uber transformed a demographic culture.One of the rites of passage in America was owning a car. Today, that's no longer the case. Millennials just don't care about driving the way prior generations did. In fairness, this trend developed over many years. But it's also fair to say that Uber isn't doing automakers any favors.As future generations came of age, they'll continue what millennials started. And as they age, ride-sharing technology will rise with them. We're already seeing that with Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) Waymo, which is an artificial-intelligence-powered taxi service.Because of Uber's first-to-market advantage and their constant push for innovation, I expect them to lead us into this brave new world. Therefore, don't treat Uber stock as a flavor of the week: next to the blockchain, this is the most transformative investment we've seen so far.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson upgraded shares of Dish Networks Inc. to neutral from underperform on Monday, writing that the company's video-subscriber losses "are at a nadir" and appear likely to "improve dramatically" in the second half of the year. He expects the impact of programming disputes to expire later in the year and argued that the company's existing subscriber base "is longer-tenured, more rural," and therefore less likely to leave Dish's service. "While pay TV financial results will likely be pressured all year, this pressure was already evident in 1Q19 results and improving subscriber losses will be considered a leading indicator," Mitchelson wrote. He raised his price target to $34 from $26. Shares have gained 40% so far this year, as the S&P 500 has risen 18%.
