NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Sprint (S) shares had their price target upped to $7 from $6 by analysts at Barclays (BCS) on Thursday.
The firm is a fan of the company's new CEO Marcelo Claure and believes that he represents a good chance for the company to optimize its monetization.
"Overall, we believe the transition of Marcelo Claure to Sprint's new CEO should bode well for a company that hasn't yet seemed to have fully realized its potential in optimizing its cost structure, optimizing its distribution and leveraging the full value provided by its three-way partnership between the carrier, SoftBank (SFTBY) and BrightStar," said the firm.
