  • Clearwire: To Buy Or Not To Buy Today? [View article]
    hkcentraler,


    Dish finally figured out how to make an offer for CLWR. More offers are coming as I have been saying for a year. Whoever ends up with CLWR full 160Mhz of clean spectrum will rule US cellphone market. I see T-Mobile making a bid. Then google beating everyone out. Google is probaby the best choice for all that spectrum so they offer free internet and cellphone across US as they are offering free internet in Chelsea neighborhood in NYC. Google will offer $15/ share for all of CLWR. Sprint as I predicted long ago will regret not buying CLWR 2 years ago when they instead lowered their stake and instead tried to buy MetroPCS. Anyways, as i said in article above CLWR spectrum is worth about $40 billion. So get ready for one insane fight for CLWR. I'm getting me some chips and sitting back for Da Thriller in Bellevue! :-)

    charliezap,

    if you own xom stock, its always a good strategy to write some options to add to your bottom line. the dividend increases are steady year in year out and the stock price doesnt move that much which is what warren looks for. writing options is low risk on xom because price doesnt move much to make an option buyer exercise the option. anyways good points.

    verticle spread,

    xom is an inevitable so it wont move much in the short term. Its for dividend players who want steady year in year dividend increases while the stock price stays flat. I wouldn't use xom as option play unless you do options at least 3 to 6 months out. best of luck.

    hkcentraler,

    send an email to clwr investor relations saying NO to sprint offer. $2.90 a small amount of what clwr is worth. Crest has a very strong argument in their complaint against sprint.

    just finished reading the Crest Financial complaint against Sprint. Point 79 is a strong argument in that Eagle River transaction is under a five year stand still provision in the EHA that until Novemeber 28, 2013 no standstill equity member (Sprint and ERH are standstill members)can acquire any CLWR stock. The CLWR board failed to withhold its consent to the stand still agreement which it is a party to. What this means is that CLWR board failed in its feduciary responsibility to its shareholders by letting Sprint illegally purchase the ERH shares. Get the popcorn out because Spint has a major fight on its hands.

    Guys get ready both McCaw and Sprint filed SEC doc's. McCaw through his ERH just exercised his warrents and now has about 375,000 CLWR shares and Sprint just stated they now own 51.7% of CLWR. Sprint now has three company's (Sprint, SprintHoldCO,SN UHC 1) that own CLWR stock.
    This article
    http://bit.ly/UFYn41

    better explains how Sprint is trying to buy CLWR for $2.90 a share!!! YIKES!!!! That CLWR spectrum is worth $20 Billion from what Softbank offered Sprint for its 49% share of CLWR.
    Separately Crest Financial filed a complaint
    http://bit.ly/UFXAQB
    against Sprint alleging that CLWR and Sprint have allowed Sprint to extract for itself CLWR valuable spectrum to the detriment of CLWR shareholders. Crest also asks for merger between Sprint and Softbank be denied. I as a shareholder can't agree more with
    crest.
    EVERY CLWR shareholder write to CLWR customer relations at

    Alice Ryder at clearwire.com
    and make it clear that CLWR spectrum must be bought for fair market value which is $20 billion and not for nearly $3 billion( $2.90/share times 1.1 billion shares!!! Thanks

    gerry,

    good points, but the article is about ever increasing dividends and buy backs and keeping the stock range bound so dividends are increased regularly and or stock buy backs. warren inevitables model doesn't like stock price climbing too much. its why xom is an inevitables in my book. gerry may i suggest you put aside your dislikes and get as many free shares of xom as you can and in a few years you will be playing guitar with rex in some resort from all the dividends he handed out to investors and employees of xom. .

    charliezap,

    your choices may have better yields and better value, but they dont fit warren's inevitables model for safe, low risk, ever growing dividends and stock buy backs from consistent profits. warren has developed a very strict, profitable investment model which in days of foolish monetary policy is a nice hedge. i would like to see xom get a handle on currency fluctuations. shale will be good for the next 5 maybe 10 years.

    charliezap,

    my whole point of the article is that xom fits warren inevitables model for investing for an ever increasing dividend and having consistent revenues keep the company profitable, but not so much that its causes the stock price to go high and slow down dividend increases and or buy backs. the other oil companies you mention although they are cheaper dont fit the warren inevitables model. this article came about from research into why warren has only 4 major positions. its a very unique investment strategy he employs and the results over decades shows that it works quiet well over the long haul. i'm hugging cindy bear, ;)

    no one really,

    bottom line is warren is BIG on just 4 stocks, this flies against all investment strategies of spreading risk. that is what makes these inevitables such an interesting investment anomaly.

    hkcentraler,

    sprint wants to rip off clwr investors. clwr board and large investors in clwr know how valuable clwr spectrum now given softbanks $20 billion bid for sprints half of clwr.
