T-Mobile parent says any merger needs to create 'real value,' Reuters reports

Deutsche Telekom's (DTEGY) CFO Thomas Dannenfeldt, speaking with analysts after the company's second quarter earnings report, said that any merger for its U.S. unit, T-Mobile (TMUS), must deliver "real value in terms of synergies," reported Reuters. Sprint (S), which has been exploring a potential merger with T-Mobile or a deal with cable provider Charter Communications (CHTR), said yesterday during its own earnings call that an announcement on merger talks should come in the "near future". Deutsche Telekom "repeatedly refused" to comment on the current situation, Reuters added. Reference Link

JPMorgan says odds of T-Mobile, Sprint merger have 'increased dramatically'
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes T-Mobile (TMUS), Sprint (S) and DISH (DISH) are in play and that a combination of any of them could happen. In addition, each of the three companies could become targets for larger wireless players, domestic cable companies, Internet giants and foreign buyers, Cusick tells investors in a research note. He thinks the likelihood for a Sprint and T-Mobile tie-up in the near term has "increased dramatically" since September, from 10% to over 35%, including now a greater than 50% chance of announcement and 70% chance of approval if announced. Parents Softbank (SFTBY) and Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) have increased their preference for a deal in the last six months and that the value of $5B of annual synergies "is enough to smooth over most disagreements on relative value," Cusick contends. He sees the most likely case as Sprint/Softbank buying T-Mobile, but feels a more even merger or even Deutsche Telekom/T-Mobile paying a premium to retain a majority of the combined company is possible.

Jefferies sees Sprint takeover by Comcast, Charter as less likely
Jefferies analyst Mike McCormack says this morning's Wall Street Journal report exclusive talks between Sprint (S) and Comcast (CMCSA)/Charter (CHTR) is not surprising. He believes the cable operators are looking for better MVNO terms and that an outright acquisition or equity stake is less likely. The report provides an indication of just how far apart Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS) may be in any discussions, McCormack tells investors in a research note. The exclusive talks may also push T-Mobile closer to DISH (DISH), the analyst adds.

Charter offer would likely have to be at least $500 per share, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes SoftBank (SFTBY) is one of the few companies that could offer a big enough price to take control of Charter Communications (CHTR). While a deal is not very likely, Softbank Chairman Masayoshi Son "is never to be counted out as a buyer," Cusick tells investors in a research note. He believes a Charter acquisition offer would likely have to be in the $500 per share or higher range. Charter shares in premarket trading are up $31.74 to $402 after the Wall Street Journal reported Friday night that SoftBank has interest in merging the company with Sprint. Cusick estimates annual synergies between Sprint (S) and Charter could be around $2B, with minimal cost to integrate versus a Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS) merger "which would have more eventual cost savings but cost much more to integrate." A Sprint and Charter deal would not have a difficult regulatory review, the analyst believes. Cusick adds that if Charter looked like it was going to sell to Softbank, Comcast (CMCSA) would have to decide if it ever did want to buy Charter and "move more quickly with an even bigger premium."

Verizon shares could rise to $51 but outlook still mixed, says BTIG
BTIg analyst Walter Piecyk believes that Verizon's (VZ) stock can rise to $51. He notes that the company's wireless "margins and churn are still near record levels," while Sprint's (S) CEO expects prices for unlimited data plans to rise. Additionally, the analyst believes that the chances of Verizon making "a large dilutive acquisition" have decreased, while Verizon would benefit from a merger of Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS). However, the analyst lowered his estimates for Verizon ,and he thinks that the company's dividend could be at risk over the longer term. Moreover, he warns that the stock could come under pressure if the T-Mobile/Sprint merger falls through, while a new , "well-funded" competitor could enter the wireless space. He keeps a Neutral rating on Verizon.

Sprint progress already reflected in valuation, says UBS
UBS analyst John Hodulik noted Sprint's results showed continued subscriber growth, improving revenue trends, and margin expansion. He also said the company appears to have hit an inflection in top line trends, which is a precursor to profitability. While Hodulik said the results show the company is clearly making progress, he believes it is already reflected in the stock's valuation. Hodulik maintained his Neutral rating and $9 price target on Sprint shares.

Charter spectrum values likely falling, says MoffettNathanson
MoffettNathanson said spectrum values are likely falling rather than rising, and investors are likely overestimating what buyers are willing to pay, a negative for current spectrum owners. The firm's analyst said Charter is likely a long-term acquirer, but near-term acquisitions are unlikely given the integrations of Time Warner Cable and Bright House.
