Sprint Nextel Corp. might soon be very big in Japan. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this morning that Softbank Corp., Japan's third biggest mobile-phone operation, is in "advanced talks" to purchase the U.S. mobile carrier.

Softbank could have had a much better deal in January. Sprint's stock was trading at $5.53 per share as of 9:15 a.m. after beginning the year at $2.33 per share. This would mark the second major sale of a Kansas City-area Fortune 500 company in the past six months. AMC Entertainment Holdings was acquired by China's Dalian Wanda Group in May.
