Sprint (S) Stock Recovers After Dropped T-Mobile (TMUS) Deal

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Sprint  (S) recovered Thursday after the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier dropped its bid to merge with fellow carrier T-Mobile  (TMUS).

Sprint plunged Wednesday after news broke that the company had ended merger talks with the fourth-largest U.S. wireless carrier, and French wireless company Iliad reportedly resumed its talks to acquire 56.6% of T-Mobile for approximately $15 billion.

Sprint also named Marcelo Claure as its new CEO to replace Dan Hesse. The 43-year-old Claure founded mobile-phone distributor Brightstar.
