  • Sprint shrinking today, down 8.6% [View news story]
    Last time Short interest was this high on S there was a pretty epic squeeze. Any hint of positive news in this coming quarter will send pps dramatically higher. I am a strong but speculative buyer at this level.

  • Report: AT&T's Cricket looking at first hotspot offering [View news story]
    lol i could care less if tethering is allowed. There's an app for that (unless your on an iphone) so for a $2 app i've been tethering for ~5 years on my unlimited plan.

  • Sprint bounces, +8% today off 52-week lows [View news story]
    Multiplicative data growth, year-over-year, will shortly clog up available band width on some already congested networks. Think more and better video to the handset and even using the handset to drive content to other devices (keep cutting the cord people, and a big fat cable co will have to buy S just to stay relevant). Eventually every channel of every carrier will be fully utilized by necessity. 2.6 could very well be the next 'beachfront' frequency.

    I have gotten 60mbps down on my LG G2, one of the first Sprint Spark enabled (tri-band) devices. Speed and coverage is very good where I am.

  • Sprint CEO hints at changes to data approach [View news story]
    Unfortunately Sprint slowed down my data by doing work on towers near me and then service was never restored. I used to seriously get up to 60mb down, inside my house (nice to know they can achieve those peak speeds in real world cause it was great while it lasted, better than home cable for awhile). Now I can't even get 3g at all...have to be on wifi. I think they took 700mhz off my tower and utilized it elsewhere. Now I have no reason to be on unlimited, so I can try a limited plan or change carrier. May be ironic but i still believe Sprint is turning there business around and will appreciate significantly in next few coming years.

  • Crown Castle primed to strike on small-cell deployment trend [View news story]
    So Sprint is building out like Verizon. In a year from now will they be giving them some real competition? This could get interesting.

  • Judge demands more info on $50M Sprint cramming settlement [View news story]
    That's just an out and out exaggeration. Sprint is nowhere near bankruptcy. They have a myriad of options to raise additional capital, should it become necessary.
    Additionally, in the history of the USA, no telecom has ever gone under. Sprint is a 100+ year old company and is not going anywhere (but up) in our lifetime.

  • Sprint: Don't Follow Executives Into Stock [View article]
    VZ has the cash and the need for increased capacity. And there are other ways for S to leverage that spectrum into income. Players other than the telecom duopoly are emerging. If you think outside the box a bit the possibilities are great. Off-hand I can see DISH, Comcast, Google, Yahoo, Apple, Netflix, Hulu...anyone with content that wants to have a hand in QOS control over wireless distribution, jumping in as a partner or mvno. Sprint's network is so much better then it was. They have the best value proposition in wireless. Any sign of continued customer growth and S PPS will respond strongly.

    Dodge & Cox has added to their S position and now holds almost 97m shares.
    So has Orbis Holdings Ltd.

    Sprint could sell just 10% of it's 2.5ghz spectrum and possibly net 10 BILLION according to Bloomberg's recent valuation. I'd say the liquidity 'problem' is easily solvable. They probably won't have to sell spectrum if more sharing / mvno agreements (DISH, Comcast. Apple?) come through in 2015. Any sign of continued organic post paid sub growth at next earnings and this will pop overnight 10-15%...then short covering will further drive it (low float=volatile movements both up and down).

  • Sprint: It Might Be Time To Buy [View article]
    Agreed but that wasn't the point...Sprint is run by a wildly successful entrepreneur with synergies in brightstar, and backed by Son, also a wildly successful entrepreneur, with massive synergies at softbank, and access to cheap capital. And TMUS is run by a wildman with access to twitter an no backing to speak of.
