Honestly, I thought I knew what was going on here but I get more and more confused. Number 1 fact, Sprint and Clearwire are joined at the hip so no deal with Clearwire will ever get done like Dish is proposing. If Sprint doesn't get deal done, I guarantee you the Dish one will fall through, that will lead to the overinflated (yes, very overinflated) stock price of Clearwire dropping back down to $2 or sub $2. CLWR has enough cash to last a few quarters, which just gives Sprint more time to buy out minority owners. I'll admit that Dish has made a shrewd move here but their final outcome is what I'm not sure of. So I'm assuming like you that is all about getting good terms from Sprint in a joint venture or spectrum sharing proposal. Everything I can tell is done for this or just to screw Sprint, which is their perorogative but I just find it fishy that Dish is propping up CLWR's stock price and I bet secretly buying shares and increasing their own value.
