What Are Sprint's Options?
Tonight’s question is a simple one…
Sprint has been left at the altar like a 1970’s era
Paul Tudor Jones. They’re like the fat, ugly bridesmaid, squinting in the sun, boxing out all the other girls as the bouquet is tossed into the air.
First a quick look at the market share situation:
CNNMoney, David Goldberg basically says there are three options for the company:
1. Get bought by Verizon ($VZ publicly stated they have no interest)
2. Buy up all the smaller companies in a bid for scale
3. Stay the course
I’m not sure I agree with David, there are international players who may represent 4th and 5th choices as potential acquirers like South Korea’s SK Telecom and the Carlos Slim controlled Latin American telecom companies. There is also this weird Google-for-Sprint rumor that’s been around since the formation of that Clearwire clusterf***…
So I’ll throw it to you…what are Sprint’s options here?
