Clearwire (CLWR +12.5%) soars to to $3.10 on news of Sprint's (S -1.1%) $2.90/share offer. Wells Fargo views Sprint's initial bid as a starting point for negotiations, and so, apparently, do many others. At $0.17/MHz.-pop, other spectrum deals have involved 50%+ premiums to the implied value of Sprint's offer, the firm notes. Though not 100% comparable, Verizon's cable spectrum purchases cost $0.68/MHz-pop.

    Didn't some investors pay $17 just a few years ago? $2.90 seems low - way low.


    Not sure I agree with Wells about starting point. If Sprint owns >50% of the shares/BoD seats, who else is going to step in to bid? Also, Management might see this as a slap, but Sprints stock price is equally undervalued, so swapping one for the other might not be seen as a bad thing.

    I agree...$2.90 is way too low....$6.00 is more like it as a starting point and then let's go from here.

    I don't see it going to $6. Doesn't Sprint already have a controlling shares thru a recent purchase giving them a hand in the board room?
