    Leap Wireless (LEAP) bounded +13% into the close on reports it's hired Goldman Sachs to help it consider a merger or sale - possibly to Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) or AT&T (T). Yet the news could be designed to prod MetroPCS (PCS +5.3%) to act - just two and a half years ago, Leap rejected overtures from MetroPCS that valued Leap at $4.7B; today Leap's market cap is around $1B.

    As it continues to add customers, MetroPCS (PCS) is pushing ahead with its planned price war, offering service packages $10 cheaper than similar plans from Sprint (S). MetroPCS execs admit the move will hurt profitability, but are hoping the losses will be offset by higher customer retention.

    Bernstein sends some positive waves to Leap Wireless (LEAP +2.8%) and MetroPCS (PCS +5.1%), saying the recent selloff over concerns of heightened competition in pre-paid wireless is overdone, although it concedes the market is "structurally unstable." Firm says that by focusing on densely populated areas, LEAP and PCS will achieve profitability comparable to the major carriers even at much lower prices.

    Deutsche Telekom (DT) is reportedly seeking a partner for T-Mobile, one that could help it finance investments in networks with fast data transfers. MetroPCS (PCS), Clearwire (CLWR) and AT&T (T) are all potential candidates, but the company might also look for a purely financial investor from outside the sector.

    MetroPCS (PCS) CEO Roger Linquist thinks it's time to shake up the cozy oligopoly of mobile phone providers with a nice price war, and envisions the $10 phone bill. As the local and long distance markets have withdrawn, the Big Four wireless networks take in more money than ever on carrying more calls than ever and own 90% of the market.

    Few rallies have been as broad-based as the one that started after the March 9 low, Floyd Norris writes - which shines a light on the five S&P 500 stocks that are down 4% since then, led by MetroPCS (PCS) and Cephalon (CEPH).
