Sprint shares could rise on 4G phone -Barron’s

NEW YORK, May 23 (BestGrowthStock) – Shares of Sprint Nextel (S.N: )
could rise to about $6 a share, helped by the introduction of a
mobile phone that works on the carrier’s new high-speed
network, according to business weekly Barron’s.

The newspaper said in its May 24 edition that Sprint’s
total subscriber base could grow as it takes the lead with a
phone that runs on its “4G” network, which it promises will
deliver speeds up to 10 times faster than existing networks.
Sprint’s new phone, called the Evo 4G, goes on sale next
month.

As Sprint’s revenue and cash flow increase, its shares
could climb, even though its bottom line remains in the red,
the paper said.

With Sprint Nextel’s shares at around $4.50, “the market is
still not giving Sprint credit for the strong cash flow,” the
paper said. “Sprint trades at a so-called free cash flow yield
of near 20 perecnt, compared to about 10 percent for rivals
AT&T (T.N: ) and Verizon (VZ.N: ).”
