NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- T-Mobile US (TMUS) - Get Report  stock coverage was initiated at Deutsche Bank with a "buy" rating who said the company was its "top pick" across its coverage. 

Shares are gaining 0.47% to $36.37 on Wednesday morning. 

The firm cited best-in-class growth margin/FCF expansion and strategic appeal to potential industry partners. 

Even though the U.S. telecom services sector faces a challenging growth trajectory near term, with increasing competition from both wireless and cable industry sources, analysts are hopeful that there are "pockets of opportunity" for T-Mobile US. 

Additionally, there are cost-saving opportunities for the company that can increase its profitability.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings currently has a "Buy" rating on the stock with a letter grade of B.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
