Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates T-MOBILE US INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate T-MOBILE US INC (TMUS) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.
