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)
- 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Results were mixed, with financials beating on higher equipment, while handsets were softer given higher churn. Sprint continues to make progress on cost cutting while maintaining share of gross adds. FCF guidance was reiterated, as higher EBITDA and lower capex expectations were offset by MLS1 payments and working capital needs. In our view, Sprint remains overvalued on fundamentals, though supportive M&A commentary likely limits near-term downside risk." (2/1/2017)

Sprint (NYSE:S) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
