Has Dish stock dropped below $25. That is when I want to buy. It’s going to go back up in a big way and I want in on it but only if it is worth it.

Yeah, Jim DeFranco started gobbling up DISH stock beginning Feb. of last year. He's bought 295,000 shares in 39 transactions. All were 5 and 10k purchases until Dec. 24th. Since then he's made 25, 25, 20, and 5k share purchases.

As you probably know Jim has been Charlie and Cantey's original partner since back in the 80's so if he's buying he must know something good is coming. :)

Or he’s just buying the stock while it is so cheap in hopes it goes back up.

I have sat down with Jim many times... the guy is a smart man, but shrewd with his money. If hes buying he expects to make a profit.

Sounds like he has a Mueller approach and is just keeping details quiet for a reason. Wouldn’t surprise me if he was 6-8 months ahead of us.

Knowing Charlie, he's more like 2-3 years ahead of the group here!

He has kept a secret perhaps and don’t want the competition to find out. How many of these and at what distance from each other would these downlinks/uplinks have to be in order for it to be at FCC requirement? It was mentioned that it was going to be IOT related so is he basically going to offer internet connectivity to small devices that does not require much bandwidth for each device?

Jim has made 3 more purchases totaling 35k shares since the above post. Hmmmmm?
