Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) [Trend Analysis] retains strong position in active trade, as shares scoring 3.33% to $9.30 in active trade session, while looking at the shares volume, around 43.05 Million shares have changed hands in this session. Japan’s SoftBank Corp Group might have renewed interest in combining its Sprint Corp with Deutsche Telekom AG’s T-Mobile US Inc , but a deal between the No. 3 and No. 4 U.S. wireless carriers may not make it past U.S. regulators, antitrust experts and industry watchers said. SoftBank is prepared to give up control of Sprint to T-Mobile, people familiar with the matter told Reuters on Friday.
The companies are expected to begin negotiations in April after the Federal Communications Commission’s auction of airwaves concludes. But two and a half years ago, SoftBank abandoned talks to acquire T-Mobile for Sprint amid opposition from U.S. antitrust regulators. It is hard to know how the new administration will view such a deal since President Donald Trump’s comments on antitrust have so far been populist, in contrast to the less skeptical view that past Republican administrations have taken of mergers, legal experts said.
“I am of the camp that that will not happen even in a Trump administration,” Christopher Marangi, co-chief investment officer at GAMCO Investors Inc, said on the prospect of a deal. “That kind of merger means lots of job cuts in the U.S.” The firm has institutional ownership of 16.70%, while insider ownership included 0.20%. S attains analyst recommendation of 2.70 with week’s performance of 3.79%.
