Now that Net Neutrality is dissolved...                                                                                           
There is a risk that Viasat will become the target of a hostile takeover.  The buzzards will be flying soon enough.

Starting the day Viasat-2 goes operational, make a statement, buy stock in Viasat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT).  Make Viasat your personal piggy bank. 650,000 customers that buy even one share per quarter makes Viasat a very expensive company to buy, (Think Verizon, AT&T, Comcast). You building quarter after quarter, or month after month, building on what is already out there will keep our oasis safe.  Viasat will need to sell about a million shares in 2018 (they're not the money-grubbers people accuse them of being, they actually need  the money to keep growing). Get in line and buy it.  Buy into Viasat because it has growth potential from expanding income derived from solid investments in plant (tangible physical structures and equipment).  Viasat isn't a "trendy" Bitcoin, maybe gone tomorrow  venture.  Viasat has earning potential made possible by the combination of Satellites Viasat-1 and Viasat-2 to provide solid Internet connectivity in a country about to undergo another "cut-the-cord" style phenomenon involving other well-established Internet Service Providers.  Comcast isn't just all about Cable-TV anymore and soon enough it won't be all about being an ISP either.  Viasat will be a bright beacon in the night for weary people that have had it with the oppressive, controlling, manipulative ISP's that think they own their customers and their personal lives.  The first Viasat-3 (terabit satellite) will launch in about 2 years, perhaps sooner. Sparks are going to fly from the heavens when that thing goes operational.  That's when owning "a ton of Viasat" is going to be highly rewarding, to say the least.  Owning stock in a company isn't a light thing.  You have voting rights when you own stock. If you like our Internet being naturally Net Neutral, invest in it to keep it.  When the customers own it, the customers control it.  If Viasat is going to be taken over, let it be by the customers. 

When the buzzards are flying around sizing up their next meal, the worst thing you can do is to just sit there.


 
I was not paid or otherwise compensated in any way for this opinion or the recommendation to purchase stock in Viasat Inc, but you can have a bouncing hamburger on me. →☺→
P.S.  I don't mess with Jim  ☺

Visat would be tanking without Chinese tariffs. Current data suggests that viasat is losing subs and that its viasat 1 service is at capacity. It's government contracts don't offer it any position of strength. It's partnership with Eulasat isn't going to work out, instead it will have a new competitor in a tough field. They are burning thru money at an alarming rate and won't be far off that they have to reissue new stock. They have very little to offer investors than mickey mouse bs like public wifi in Mexico.

Just wait until the insurance company starts digging into things! Which will be interesting because Viasat will want to put forth a worst case scenario and the insurance company will try for the best case scenario.

What a mess!

Exactly.  If it wasn't for this mess, Viasat would  be a really good investment.  I guess I might need to wait for Viasat 3 before throwing more money at VSAT.  lol

Don't forget the loss of the Eutelsat deal.

For Viasat, monitor the airline and government contracts. That is where the bread is buttered for them.

ViaSat is in a simple Cat-and-Mouse game with the insurance company.  The question of retracting the antennas and re-deploy was floated as soon as the problem was discovered.  There's problems with that.  ViaSat-2 is insured, as designed and deployed with prudence.  If ViaSat did the re-deploy move and things went from bad to worse, the insurance company would say it was negligent to attempt that risk which they would not be willing to insure saying is isn't on them that ViaSat broke their toy.  By filing the claim for ViaSat-2 as-is, the insurance company will demand the re-deploy saying they aren't going to pay hundreds of millions if a fix may be possible, thus shifting the risk of a bad re-deploy to the insurance company and then the re-deploy can't be deemed irresponsible to have been performed if it all goes badly.  If a re-deploy is successful, no harm, no foul, and everybody lives happily ever after, but if disaster strikes, ViaSat is covered.
