Shares of Sprint (S) - Get Report were higher on Thursday after the telecom company announced plans to create or bring back 5,000 jobs to the U.S. The announcement is part of a pledge made by SoftBank, which owns more than 80% of Sprint, to create 50,000 jobs and invest $50 billion in U.S. companies. President-elect Donald Trump, however, took credit for the announcement saying the jobs were coming to America "because of me." Along with Sprint, U.S. satellite company OneWeb, which SoftBank also has a stake in, announced it will be hiring 3,000 people.
