S) is getting a 6% shot in the arm this afternoon, following earnings numbers that forecast a return to subscriber growth after losing names for the last seven months straight. Despite taking a big hit from winding down its Nextel unit during the quarter, Sprint is looking stronger now that Japan's Softbank owns 78% of shares. Wall Street's reaction to the earnings release is evidence of that.
From a technical standpoint, there are probably more questions than answers on Sprint's chart. Shares are currently sitting in between resistance at $6.80 and support down at $5.60. Despite today's big boost, shares are still trading in the middle of that range. Until Sprint can resolve a direction, I'd recommend staying away.
