Sprint (S) says it isn't planning any immediate takeover of Clearwire (CLWR), tabling any talk of a deal for at least 6-8 months until the Softbank deal closes. Shares of Clearwire jumped 16% today on speculation of an imminent takeover, and have skyrocketed 78% over the last two trading days the previous week. Despite the fervor, a deal between the two is speculative at best. S doesn’t need to own CLWR because it already has access to its spectrum, and its very expensive to boot.
