T-Mobile Synergies to Come

If investors are speculating upon T-Mobile's next big deal, upside in the company's stock and earnings may come from synergies related to its last M&A effort, the purchase of MetroPCS in 2013.

"We're among the believers, and we see T-Mobile as simply too cheap with or without a Sprint deal. Our confidence is bolstered by the huge step up in free cash flow that will come as MetroPCS integration costs roll off and synergies roll on in two years," Craig Moffett, a principal with MoffettNathanson Research, said on Thursday.

T-Mobile didn't provide new guidance on MetroPCS merger synergies other than to say its old guidance is "conservative." Get the hint? New guidance will come at the end of the year. For 2014, T-Mobile now expects adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $5.6 billion to $5.8 billion, and capital expenditure between $4.3 billion and $4.6 billion.
