Sprint and T-Mobile: Should You Bet On This Rumor?

1:06 pm ET, 10 Apr 2018

Sprint (NYSE: S) and T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) restarted discussions around merger, say people familiar with the matter. The discussions are at a preliminary stage, and it isn't clear what terms are being considered. 

The Sprint stock popped 20% in mid-day trading.  Is this premature?  

You should be aware that previous talks collapsed because of a disagreement about control of the company.

Over the last year, TMUS returned -1.58%. This return is lower than Wireless Communications sector (0.92%), Technology industry (18.71%),  and S&P 500 (10.86%) returns.

Over the last year, Sprint returned -27.87%. This return is lower than Wireless Communications sector (0.92%), Technology industry (18.71%), S&P 500 (10.86%) returns.

#{finnyScore:null}Our quantitative analysis shows 1 reason to buy and 1 reason to sell S. S doesn’t have an assigned Finny Score, because we don’t have sufficient data points to score the stock.

3. What are the reasons to buy S? Why should I buy S stock?

Here are the reasons to buy S stock:

  • Sprint holds assets that will play an important role in the wireless industry. Management touts that its 2.5 GHz high-band spectrum is the “new low-band of 5G.”
  • Sprint’s network position has improved markedly over the past year. The firm should see its customer base grow and margins expand as a result.
  • With its 83% stake in Sprint, Softbank is likely to come to Sprint’s rescue again should the firm falter.
  • S profitability is improving. The YoY profit margin change was 26.42 percentage points. See S profitability chart.

4. What are the reasons to sell S? Why should I sell S stock?

Let's look at the reasons to sell S stock (i.e., the bear case):

  • Despite recent improvements, Sprint still has the lowest brand perception and customer service rankings in the wireless industry.
  • With its smaller scale, Sprint is likely to operate at a persistent cost disadvantage to its larger rivals. This position will make it difficult for Sprint to compete as a value carrier while delivering decent profitability.
  • With about $15 billion of debt maturities coming due through 2020 and a network that needs investment, Sprint is under tremendous financial pressure.
  • S average analyst price target ($7.45) is below its current price ($8.62). See S price target chart.
