What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sprint stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sprint stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sprint is on track with its network modernization and integration efforts, to fortify its position in the wireless industry. Sprint’s prepaid subsidiary has extended its unlimited offerings to its existing iPhone owners and has also inked deal with Apple to relaunch itself as an exclusive iPhone carrier. Sprint also offers attractive unlimited data plans to lure customers from rivals. We believe these efforts have driven the huge wireless subscribers. Sprint unveiled its Sprint MultiLine solution which allows businesses to add a company-owned number to their employees' personal phones for better businesses. For full-year 2017, Sprint has raised its outlook. Over the past three months, the stock price underperformed its industry. However, high cash burn from promotional offers and discounts, debt-laden balance sheet and decreasing cash flow have led to losses for Sprint. Further, Sprint operates in a highly competitive wireless market." (10/18/2017)
