Paulson & Co. isn't happy with T-Mobile USA CEO John Legere's dismissal of MetroPCS (PCS) merger opponents as "greedy hedge funds." "If anyone is being greedy here, it is Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY.PK) by stripping out $15 billion of senior debt at above market rates ... MetroPCS shareholders are left with a subordinated minority stake in an over leveraged equity stub," argues Paulson, which owns 9.9% of MetroPCS. With Madison Dearborn (another huge shareholder) supporting the deal, some think advisory firm ISS could play kingmaker.

    "Paulson & Co. isn't happy" ... who cares!

     

    Investors care more what Lloyd Craig Blankfein and Jamie Dimon say because they are continually relevant!
