Stocks to Watch: Sprint, Citigroup

NEW YORK -- Softbank reached a deal Monday to acquire a 70% stake in Sprint Nextel (S) for $20.1 billion.

The deal is expected to be completed by the middle of 2013.

Sprint is the No. 3 wireless provider, behind AT&T (T) and Verizon Wireless. The deal will give Sprint more capital to use to compete against its much bigger rivals.
