T-Mobile (TMUS) Stock Gains on Comcast Acquisition Talks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of T-Mobile US (TMUS) were gaining 2.3% to $39.75 Wednesday following a report that Comcast (CMCSA) is in talks to potentially acquire the mobile carrier.

T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) is holding talks with multiple companies about acquiring the U.S. company, according to German magazine Manager Magazin. Comcast is reportedly seen as the more attractive of the companies interested in T-Mobile, because it has the resources to make an offer to purchase all shares of the carrier.

Satellite TV provider Dish (DISH) is also among the companies interested in acquiring T-Mobile.

Shares of Comcast were up 0.4% to $59.12 following the report.

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 impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated."
