Dish (DISH -1.4%) owned $592M in "derivative financial instruments" tied to Sprint's (S) stock as of May 1, as well as Sprint shares worth $75M as of March 31, the company discloses in a 10-Q filed after its Q1 report. Dish also owned $950M in Clearwire (CLWR) debt at the end of Q1, nearly unchanged from $951M at the end of Q4. Consider the Sprint purchases an attempt to gain a bit of leverage as Dish pursues its bids for Sprint and Clearwire. Also: During Dish's Q1 call, Charlie Ergen stated Dish would consider partnering with another carrier if Sprint sticks with SoftBank (no surprise), and that a sale of the company wouldn't be out of the question.
