WinStar's plan assumed a 10 year ROI on a site. In hindsight that seems rather foolish now, but back then they convinced people it made sense.
2. They seem to have very good dealings with all of the tower companies
which gets them bulk pricing, reduced costs, etc..
American Tower is a major shareholder, so this should be expected.

Very behind!
8. Wall street will keep feeding them as long as they are executing, and
they are doing a good job of that.
Who says they are executing? Good installs, good equipment, lots of sites built, and happy customers are all important things, but none of them mean they are executing well. They actually need to execute against their business plan, which includes things like cash flow and profitability. Both currently stink.
