What is Globalstar?

Globalstar, Inc. is an American satellite communication company that operates a constellation of low earth orbit satellites for phone and low-speed data communications. The satellite constellation consists of 24 second-generation low-earth orbiting satellites.

Globalstar was founded in 1991 as a joint venture of Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) and Loral Corporation (NASDAQ:LORL). Then in 1994, the two sponsors announced the formation of Globalstar LP, which is a limited partnership established in the US.

Besides Qualcomm and Loral Corporation, eight other companies including Alcatel (IST:ALCTL), AirTouch (TLV:ARTS), Deutsche Aerospace, Hyundai (KRX:005380), and Vodafone (LON:VOD) contribute to the Globalstar LP.

Globalstar, Inc. is a publicly listed company and it currently trades on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol GSAT.

Should I buy Globalstar shares today?

Globalstar shares have been on the rise in the past month and yesterday’s deal with Apple is expected to drive the stock price even higher.

Nevertheless, you should invest wisely especially since the GSAT stock had slipped by 15.8% prior to the Apple deal. In August, Steve Weiss also indicated that the road ahead for Qualcomm shares is a difficult one.

GSAT stock price prediction

After the Apple deal, analysts expect the stock to continue with its general bullish outlook and possibly hit $2.5 before the end of the week.
