In the said letter, Antipodes Partners highlighted a few stocks and T-Mobile Us Inc. (NASDAQ:TMUS) is one of them. T-Mobile is a wireless service provider. Year-to-date, T-Mobile Us Inc. (NASDAQ:TMUS) stock gained 27.6% and on June 1st it had a closing price of $99.70. Here is what Antipodes Partners said:

“Increasing the defensiveness of the portfolio by adding to Infrastructure/Property – Developed Markets cluster via T-Mobile (and parent Deutsche Telekom) on account of the company’s stronger competitive position following the merger with Sprint. Whilst T-Mobile has a 30% share of US mobile subscribers, it now has a 50% share of spectrum which will improve its network performance and, complemented by an existing strong service culture, should lead to market share gains.”
