  • Is It Time To Speculate On Sprint? [View article]
    @Amir, Did you know that Softbank owns 35% of Alibaba Holdings Ltd, which is valued at $74 Billion.

  • Sprint to test home delivery service [View news story]
    Did you forget how Apple turned itself around? If I am not mistaken Apple was doomed to the annuls of history as a disaster. Today it is the world's most revered company. Before you pucker your lips debasing Marcelo and Masa I would do my research on Google on who these guys are. Masa at one time in 2000 was purported to be worth $200 billion. Just recently his company's share of Alibaba was ascribed approx. $75 billion. Claure only recently sold his Brightstar for over $10 billion. They sure as hell have proven themselves on many occasions. I don't think you could even come close to the same tier of success as these gentlemen.

  • Sprint to test home delivery service [View news story]
    If you are so sure then please put your Money on it. Sprint's current mgmt. IMHO Sprint is doing everything is should have done years ago, however I understand the new team was not at the helm then.

    Current marketing - phenomenal

    Adding 1500 RadioShack stores to their distribution channels - brilliant

    Halving AT&T and VZ wireless bills - smart

    Building out their network with significant improvements - excellent

    Sprint's endeavors in building our its network is way ahead of schedule and it will be promulgated on their earnings day, May 5, 2015.

  • Why Sprint's Guidance Could Be Ugly [View article]

    You certainly are a troll. I have a feeling you are paid by the likes of John Legere to trash Sprint where ever possible. There is not a single thing that you have promulgated that wasn't negative. You purport many things about Sprint's past, however you fail to broach all the positives about the current Sprint, such has how improved their Network has become in less than six months. How they are continuously manifesting their First Place results in many US cities. You certainly have a vendetta against Sprint. I would love to make a wager with you that Sprint under the current management will have little difficulty in eventually taking on the current duopoly.

    You seem to accuse Sprint investors of fabricating facts, when it is you that continues writing missives that are intended to mislead.

    @Trade2Travel1, you will be a disappointed Short when you realize that most of your facts had little consequence on Sprint's destiny.

    How ignorant one must be to surmise that Sprint is about to plunge into a BK when they know very well that Softbank is its majority stake holder. Softbank made an investment in Sprint knowing very well that they would have to deploy capital and resources to make S a leading competitive wireless telecom, like they did when they took over Vodafone Japan.

    Sprint and especially TMUS didn't have a WiFi capability 3 years ago.

    TMUS claims everything it is doing is original, however I beg to differ with them.

  • Sprint sets tomorrow for rollout of co-branded RadioShacks, doubling footprint [View news story]
    @Trade2, no matter how you solve your equations for failure, I beg to differ with your conclusions. A good case in point is Apple under the leadership of John Scully. Did you ever think Apple would have had a glide path to where it is today under new management that replaced Scully?

    You like to ascribe Sprint's past to Softbank but you never mention how Softbank was able to take on the Japanese duopoly. I can either surmise that it is your ignorance or your table pounding Short position that compels you to be a troll on this site.

    Let's look at Sprint from another window of reference. Masayoshi Son purchased Sprint knowing very well Sprint's problems. He first made an effort to acquire TMUS, hoping to merge both companies before putting in place his challenge on the US duopoly (ATT and VZ). The merger would have created over $3B to $5B in synergies every year if it would have been sanctioned by the FCC and DOJ. The merged combine would still be number three in the US but would globally be a major force when you add Softbank's subscribers, leaving Masa Son with close to 150 million wireless subscribers. Nevertheless, this deal did not pass the asinine gauntlet the FCC placed in front of Softbank. The merger would have been beneficial to the US consumer in the same manner that Softbank's acquisition of Vodafone Japan benefited the consumers in Japan.

    The failure of this merger only cost Masayoshi precious time, however he was not foolish like AT&T to have to anti-up approx. $6B if the deal failed to come to fruition. Masayoshi has now brought in Junichi Miyakawa, Softbank's CTO, from Japan. He was instrumental in the successful deployment of Softbank's 2500 MHz spectrum, the much maligned spectrum that Bloomberg estimated to be worth approx. $100 billion.

    Both S & TMUS are definitely going to participate in the upcoming 600MHz auction and if I am not mistaken the FCC is leaning toward protecting a third of the spectrum for the likes of S & TMUS.

    My sources at Sprint indicated that Sprint is now quietly enhancing their network with 2.5 GHz and most of it should be close to completion in the next three quarters. If this was successful in Japan, why do you think this can not happen in the US.

    Now, last but not least, you never mention that the current management team of Masa, Marcelo and Junichi had nothing to do with Sprint's past and that the trio only recently have put in a concerted effort to take in the US duopoly. Softbank has the wherewithal to invest in Sprint infrastructure and as you can see if you are up to date with the news, Sprint has made numerous bold moves, such as taking over approx. 1500 RadioShack stores at a fraction of the price and time it would have taken if they wanted to do it organically. The RS takeover gives S an exclusive right to sell their wares in those stores without competing with the competition, which they did before the RS bankruptcy.

    Did you forget that Sprint currently has over 57 million subscribers? $5 B in cash and a much leaner operation. Did you not notice what WS attributed to spectrum in the last auction? If the same type of spectrum was good enough for Softbank to take on the behemoths in Japan what makes you think that they can't do it in the USA? Have you heard of pico and nano cell technology?

    Nothing you purport is new and is probably known by all of us that know Sprint, however, the future is what distinguishes you from those of us who believe in the company's turn around.

    Your definitely not a smart investor, if you were you wouldn't be so ignorant. If you had the perspicacity to understand why Masa Son purchased Sprint you would not be promulgating such gibberish.

    Sprint will never be even close to a Bankruptcy. Have you been sleeping all this time? Did you forget that Softbank has more than $70 Billion tied up in Alibaba. In case you didn't know Softbank used its 2.5 GHz spectrum in Japan to pass NTT Decomo and KDDI to become the leading wireless enterprise. At first they were ridiculed by the likes of TRADE2TRAVEL1 who have no idea of Masayoshi Son's plans and how he is going consummate them.

    Softbank is also a 35% owner of Alibaba Holding LTD, which would ascribe over $70 B to the company.

    Sprint's new CEO, Marcelo Claire, is a shrewd entrepreneur that knows the wireless business very well. His company Brightstar was recently purchased by Mr. Son for approximately $10.5 B. Brightstar is known for being the most prolific phone distributor worldwide.

    Sprint's new gunslinger from Softbank, Junichi Miyakawa is the genius behind Softbank's success in deploying their 2500 MHz spectrum in Japan and with sufficient funds and improvements in technology he will enhance Sprint's 'Spark network' as he did in Japan.

    They have the wherewithal, experience and the dream team to consummate Masa's plans. Their ship has just begun to take off.
