Im sorry to say, but the guy is a moron. Either sell or go bankrupt. They are giving fair market. Obviously they are not going to pay more than what the company is worth. They accepted for a reason, and that is because the other companies are going to be looking for a steal once the company goes under. The other companies are not stupid and Sprint knows they need this as well, but aren't willing to get ripped off.

Sprint kept Clearwire afloat when everybody else bailed. So you should be happy to be getting 2.97 a share. Without Sprint his shares would be worth zero.

This is why many investors lose money. All they care about is what is coming to their wallets. Many don't even watch to see how their company is performing. As someone else pointed out, Sprint has been financially fostering Clearwire for quite sometime. Clearwire has been slowly reaching for life support. The stockholder should stay out of the way of turning the company around.

Crest needs to stay out of this and just concentrate on their toothpaste and other dental care products.
