What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sprint stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sprint stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sprint is coming up with new ideas to help enterprises improve their relation with employees and better serve their customers. The company has increased its fiscal 2018 adjusted EBITDA estimates on a reported basis to a range of $12-$12.5 billion, up from the previous guidance of $11.6-$12.1 billion. Sprint's network modernization and integration efforts, lucrative unlimited data plans, promotional offers in both postpaid and prepaid plans have paid off, in terms of huge subscriber addition. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. However, Sprint has been continually making efforts to lure customers from rival carriers by offering attractive promotional plans and lucrative discounts, which are resulting into high cash burn rate. Moreover, the company has a debt-laden balance sheet, which might adversely affect its cost of capital while trying to raise new funds for network expansion." (10/8/2018)
  • 2. Macquarie analysts commented, "We model FY3Q/17 postpaid phone net adds, churn, and ARPU of 308k/725k, 1.63%/1.57%, and US$45.72/US$46.12. Soft iPhone 8 demand was likely the catalyst for its latest round of promos which could be enhanced by the holiday season/iPhone X. Prepaid momentum is ongoing with 95k net adds, a 544k improvement YoY. The Boost brand is strong, with promos like five lines for US$100/mo, while efforts to refresh Virgin’s offers continue. Prepaid ARPU grew despite Boost’s new taxes/fees inclusive plans; we model FY3Q/17 prepaid ARPU of US$37.27/US$37.89, reflecting expectations that this promo will dilute ARPU sequentially in FY3Q. 3Q Adj. EBITDA was US$2.7bn as management focused on cost controls with US$750m+ in savings from EIP mix, labor, backhaul, and wireline expenses." (10/26/2017)
