11:03 EDTDTV, S, DISH, VZBarron's, analyst see further upside in DISH shares
Weekly publication Barron's and research firm Macquarie are upbeat on the outlook of satellite TV provider DISH (DISH). WHAT'S NEW: Analysts say that DISH's spectrum alone could be worth $25B after taxes in a sale, and the company is trading at a market valuation of $30B, Barron's wrote in an article published on Saturday. At that valuation, investors are giving the company little credit for its satellite TV business which is "highly profitable" but "slow growing," according to Barron's. The stock could rise 20% as investors gain a better understanding of the value of the company's spectrum, the publication stated. Meanwhile, Macquarie analyst Amy Yong raised her price target on DISH to $100 from $85 in a note to investors earlier today. In May, DISH Chairman Charlie Ergen rejected a merger with DirecTV (DTV) that would have valued DISH at $100, an SEC document showed, the analyst wrote. Ergen decided to terminate discussions about a merger because he believes the company is worth more than $100 per share, Yong believes. She thinks DISH could benefit by partnering with a telecom company such as Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S), and predicted that the value of its spectrum could reach $80 per share later this fall. DISH shares offer the most opportunity in the pay TV space, according to Yong, who kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, DISH lost 1% to $66.

Sprint says it will more than double its company-owned retail footprint tomorrow by opening 1,435 Sprint-RadioShack stores. In last week’s transaction, General Wireless, an affiliate of Standard General LP, acquired 1,743 RadioShack stores. Sprint has agreed with Standard General to be co-tenants in 1,435 of those stores, with Sprint being the primary brand in marketing materials and signage. Sprint will occupy roughly one third of the retail space at these existing RadioShack locations. The phone carrier added, "The expansion of Sprint’s retail stores also means significant opportunities for the company to invest in local communities by adding nearly 3,500 new jobs. In the coming months, Sprint will actively recruit a skilled workforce to fill quality full- and part-time positions, helping to make local communities stronger."
