Among the stock share price winners for the week of December 7, according to Cablefax’s week in review of telecom and media stocks, was Sprint Nextel. Early in the week a report from analysts at Jefferies said that Sprint could take as many as 50,000 customers from T-Mobile this holiday season as a result of its offer to give customers 50% off what they pay to Sprint’s rivals if they switch. The stock closed Friday at $3.65 a share, up 3.40% from the week prior. Other stocks that rose—though modestly—were MSG Networks, at $20.27 a share, up 1.05%, and Lionsgate, at $34.08 a share, up 1.04%.

On the loser side, Harmonic’s stock continues to fall, following the announcement that it will purchase French pay-TV provider Thomson Video Networks for $75 million. The stock closed Friday at $4.26, down 20.22%. Other declines include Rentrak ($45.37, down 12.18%) and Crown Media ($5.16, down 11.03%). Check out the full rankings below.
