Sprint, T-Mobile Restart Deal Talks, Once Again

Sprint Corp (S) Shares Sold by Cowen Inc.

Shares of Sprint and T-Mobile were up over 6 percent following the news, as Wall Street analysts have always been a fan of a merger between the two companies.

The on-again, off-again courtship between telecoms Sprint and T-Mobile is officially back on, with The Wall Street Journal reporting today that the companies have resumed talks of a merger for what is the third time in four years. Japan's SoftBank owns 85% of Sprint; the company's founder and CEO, Masayoshi Son, was reluctant a year ago to give up a large chunk of the carrier in any deal with T-Mobile.

Both companies have controlling shareholders.

The scribe mentions that the latest round of talks are still in the preliminary stages which suggests that there's a possibility that they might fall through again. On the other hand, a merger would remove the cheapest wireless network in America, Sprint, from the picture, and remove downwards price pressure from the marketplace. The idea behind a merger between the two carriers has always been to put up a united opposition to behemoths like Verizon and AT&T who have a considerable hold on the country's mobile market.

Would you like to see a merger between T-Mobile and Sprint? Competition is low, unlimited plans are nonexistent, and a reasonable plan costs over $100 a month.

But critics of any such deal fret that a post-merger environment could temper if not eliminate such practices and possibly result in higher prices for all wireless customers. Cowen reiterated a "hold" rating on shares of Sprint in a report on Monday, February 5th.

Henderson Group PLC raised its position in Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) by 151.7% during the third quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
