Canaccord Genuity initiates coverage on MetroPCS (NYSE: PCS) with a Buy. PT $16.00.

Analyst, Greg Miller, said, "Despite challenging operating conditions, we believe the company should continue to produce double-digit growth, 30% EBTIDA margins with a high single-digit FCF yield. We believe the recent near sale to Sprint (NYSE: S) highlights value and difficulty in US wireless market, and we believe other bidders, such as T-Mobile USA, could create value through an acquisition. We expect Q1/11 to be challenging due in part to promotions (which will dent margins) as well as potential delays in federal tax returns. However, priced at 4.2x 2013E EBITDA, we find the risk/reward warrants a BUY."
