SoftBank calls kickback allegations a 'smear campaign,' WSJ says

A complaint was submitted to an Indian financial regulator in March against SoftBank Group alleging that current or former SoftBank executives received kickbacks related to the bank's investments in the company, the Wall Street Journal. SoftBank, which is also facing pressure from a number of attorneys claiming they represent undisclosed shareholders, has denied all the allegations saying they are part of a "malicious smear campaign" and is working to identify the person or people behind the complaints.

T-Mobile price target raised to $70 from $55 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan raised his price target for T-Mobile (TMUS) to $70 from $55 as he views it as the best way to play the deregulatory/technology driven consolidation. The analyst notes that President-Elect Trump met with Masayoshi Son of SoftBank (SFTBF), who agreed to invest $50B in the U.S. Horan believes the meeting will likely be a precursor to a Sprint (S)/T-Mobile/Dish (DISH) merger to create a discounted quad-play service company. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on T-Mobile' shares, and points out that the company has improved its network and taken share from AT&T (T)/Verizon (VZ).
