Just keeps dropping...will likely be at or below $2 by the end of the week, below $1 by the end of the month. De-listed by the Summer Solstice.
 

It seems they would say something to stem the losses now. Leak some good news to some press puppets (they have those right? T-Mobile certainly does), have the CEO tweet something, issue a press release about NGN, something. I think what scares investors is there is no good news, and the silence from Overland Park only seems to prove that.

They are in whats known as a "quiet period" http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/quiet-period The last quarter ended December 31st, so the quiet period started on that date, and will end when they make an official earnings announcement (most likely early February).  Untill that time has passed any leaks, tweets or any relevant data to the companies fortunes (or mis fortunes) would be in violation of Securities Act of 1933 https://www.sec.gov/answers/quiet.htm.  They can't just do what every they want... they have some rules to play by, if you listen to John's tweets and periscope videos he is careful not to disclose and real information during his "quiet period".

They can say a lot during the quiet period. Legere pooped on the EFF. They just can't make forward-looking statements or discuss financial data. ANYTHING to let people know they're still alive would be welcome. Instead the CEO is tweeting sports pictures. "Nero fiddled while Rome burned"

true, he could say more than nothing, if he is going to maintain a twitter account it should be used to talk about sprint. and not how proud he is of the local sports teams. but that's just my opinion and honestly even if he posted something substantial and positive very few people in the investing community will make multi million dollar investments based on a tweet... No one who reads this board, or follow his twitter account has enough personal wealth to invest in any one stock, to significantly affect share price of a stock like sprint.

Yeah really. What the hell?

Reminds me of when the old Sprint stock tanked towards $2 in late 2011 and early 2012 before buyout rumors shot it up to $5 and then the ultimate $7.65 price that Softbank paid in mid-2013.

 

Does Sprint have another savior willing to throw yet more money at them, and how much?  We can only hope. :D

What? Sprint has been better as a company since Marcelo took over. Churn is down to record lows for the company, postpaid phone net losses are decreasing every quarter, and the network is improving daily (just check RM's 2nd half reports). If Sprint reports good Q4 results and hopefully clears up the apparent confusion about their network strategy I think the stock will rebound a bit.

 

There's still a long way to go and how they will handle debt coming due over the next few years is a real concern, but they're certainly on a better track than they ever were under Hesse.

I hate to be this guy...but Sprint could have exponential network improvement and still go bankrupt if they don't get consumers to see the improvement. Are we looking at this too emotionally? Anytime I look at the Sprint balance sheet I get nauseous. It is just flat out bad.

Reading general news articles about sprint do indicate satisfaction with sprint service. Like ianqn said customers are noticing but I think it takes time to really see the the numbers.

Earnings next Tuesday. It seems like they're announcing it on short notice. I wonder if they moved it up based on recent events.

Excellent.  Google Finance had estimated next Earnings Release call was Feb 3rd, so I am quite pleased that there will be more clarity in just a few business days.

Sprint's positive earnings report and reassurance that network upgrades will not disrupt service is still not enough to stop the negative Nancys

 

Run, Don't Walk Away From Sprint http://seekingalpha.com/article/3834466?source=ansh $S, $T, $VZ

Sprint won't stop them. They have to discredit them. By staying around and improving quarter after quarter.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
