Leap Wireless (LEAP +3.7%) outperforms following news Dish Network (DISH -2.1%) offered $11/share for MetroPCS (PCS +1.2%) before the latter decided to merge with T-Mobile USA. With MetroPCS off the table in the absence of a higher bid, Dish could conceivably turn to Leap to further its 4G ambitions. Dish is underperforming: aside from the MetroPCS disclosure, investors may be bothered by the WSJ's claim that FCC officials are "leaning" toward limiting the use of Dish's 4G spectrum out of interference concerns.
