casino444: vod share price being held back for what ever reason ?? gets to 225 then drops , will the pattern ever change
veryniceperson: Just reading about the budget. He has dropped the capital gains tax rate down from 28% to 20% for higher rate and 18% to 10% lower rate. They rekon could be a shot in the arm for the stock market. Any views, very quite here of late. Anyway back on topic Vod share price seems to be holding up well.
gotnorolex: A mobile master Despite rising fears of worsening macroeconomic turbulence, telecoms giant Vodafone (LSE: VOD) enjoyed a mild 1.3% share price bump during the course of January. To some extent this move can be explained -- the essential nature of mobile phone ownership nowadays does provide the likes of Vodafone with certain defensive qualities. And as market jitters remain at elevated levels, this factor could provide the London firm's stock value with further support in the weeks and months ahead. But regardless of Vodafone's near-term fortunes, I believe the fruits of the firm's multi-billion pound Project Spring organic investment scheme should blast global demand for its services to the stars, and with it the firm's share price. Vodafone announced in November that European organic revenues fell 1% between July and September, a marked improvement from the 1.5% decline punched in the prior quarter. Meanwhile sales growth from the lucrative Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific (or AMAP) region accelerated to 6.7% in the period, the company noted, up from 6.1% in April to June. And I reckon Vodafone's share price could receive further fuel should its next set of results (due on Thursday 4 February) reveal a sixth successive quarterly improvement in total organic service revenues. The City certainly expects earnings at Vodafone to chug higher again in the near future following sustained pressure -- indeed, the business is expected to flip from a 12% bottom-line dip in the year to March 2016 with a 19% advance in the following period. While a subsequent P/E rating of 38.7 times may be too rich for many investors, I reckon Vodafone's terrific dividend projections make up any value shortfall. The mobile operator is expected to chuck out dividends of 11.5p in 2016 and 2017, respectively, figures that create a market-busting yield of 5.3%
maddox: I'm not in the least bit surprised by the news that talks with Liberty are over. It would be spectacularly difficult to reach acceptable terms, then there are the tax issues and regulatory environment. IMHO it was always a longshot. What is more difficult to understand is VOD share price reaction. Mr Market seems to have assumed all the obstacles would have been cleared, VOD would have acquired strategically important assets and at a bargain price. Curious. I'm pleased to have got this distraction out of the way. Regards, Maddox
nige co: Hi Christh, A full on merger I believe cannot happen for Liberty as the acquirer due to its market cap. It would require a complex "swap" of assets aka spin off of emerging markets leaving the VOD banana small enough for Malone to swallow.... A full on merger is not on the table for VOD because Colao doesn't appear to see much value beyond German cable assets. ....of course it isn't a full merger because VOD doesn't want or need all of Liberty, but a "swap" arrangement would be required for Malone to get his VOD EU target. You may recall, the rumour of a couple years ago was AT&T buying VOD's EU business with France's Orange taking African operations, with India taken by China Mobile. This kind of dissection would make VOD EU assets small enough for Liberty to be the larger. However, it will take the cooperation of several to get Liberty into that position. Liberty needs to move as mobile technology is going to soon render most everything but fiber backbone a redundant asset.... and mobile trumps fixed lined when you start getting +Gbps mobile bandwidth. With Liberty claiming to have approached VOD’s largest shareholders, this VOD/Liberty deal boils down to their direction that they want for their holdings. Do they want a continued long term growth story with emerging markets with the ability of monies to flow from more profitable EU into the likes of India/Africa OR a stand alone emerging markets holding with limited dividend capability and a decoupled EU asset small enough that it can be sold to Malone for a premium in the short term? Tell me what direction the big money wants and you'll know what it going to happen. 1) will they choose a quick buck (a premium on the current VOD share price). OR 2) Stick with Colao and his long term plans, that should pay dividends in more ways than one. I would value VOD with a takeover premium at 300p to 320p. Whatever happens VOD looks attractive short or long term, with great growth potential for the future. JMO. Good luck all. Nige Co
nige co: The VOD share price gap from 28 August 2013 was successfully closed today. The share price needed to drop to 189.85p the high on 28 Aug. Today the VOD share price dropped to 189.50p, to close the gap. Hopefully we may now see some recovery in the share price
nige co: Portside, Over the last few weeks you have gone from saying VOD are going up to 220p, to now going to 196p, then to 190p to now 180p, without any good reason given only that the VOD BOD want the share price down for their personal gain, which is absolute rubbish, The directors recently bought shares on 19 March. Vittorio Colao purchased 4 Million shares. So considering the above you sound like someone chasing the market, desperate IMO. Nothing you or anyone says on a discussion board will move the VOD share price. Fact.
nige co: IMO, the reason for the drop in the VOD share price is down to VOD struggling in Europe. Also possible bid premium from all the AT&T speculation. If you believe that the VOD share price is going down to 180p, why don't you sell or short the shares? I prefer to hold for the long term.
darias: "If you had done your home work you also would have known that the VOD share price should be unaffected meaning the share price will not drop by the 112p dividend, that it's the number of VOD shares in issue that's going to fall roughly by half, and not the SP, according to VOD's CFO Andy Halford." The share price has to be related to something. Partly it is due to the number of shares but mostly it is due to the confidence that the market has in the organisation. Andy Halford cannot control or predict the share price any more than you or I. If the share price is to half it means that the company is going to use the capital receipts to buy back shares. I cannot see that a company currently valued and struggling to maintain a share price of £2:66, is going to receive a capital receipt amounting to around 1 half of its actual value and then pay out a dividend amounting to half that capital value can maintain its share price and will be wasting its money on a massive share buy back from the hoped for profits of a reduced company. We will be very fortunate to achieve £3 before April and like you I will be out if that is achieved. As soon as it goes ex before the special dividend is paid this will drop like a stone.
pattayaboy: Vodafone cashes in 3 September 2013 After months of speculation, Vodafone announced yesterday it will sell its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless for £84 billion. £54 billion will be returned to Vodafone shareholders through a mixture of cash and Verizon shares equating to around 112p per share (Vodafone's current share price is 208.3p), broken down as 32p in cash, plus 80p in Verizon shares. In addition, Vodafone intends to consolidate share holdings on what is expected to be roughly a two-for-one basis. Example 1,000 shares in Vodafone is currently worth £2,083. Under the terms of the announcement an investor holding 1,000 shares could expect to receive: Cash of 32p per share = £320 26 shares in Verizon (based on Verizon's latest price of $47.34 and assuming an exchange rate of 1.55 = £30.54 per share) = £800 (rounded up) 500 'new' Vodafone shares What are shareholders' options? The structure of the deal presents Vodafone shareholders with a number of options. If investors do not wish to continue holding Vodafone shares following the announcement, they can sell them in the normal way. For those wishing to continue, this raises two questions - what to do with the cash proceeds and what to do with the newly acquired Verizon shares? Cash The choices are to take the cash or reinvest into Vodafone shares (or indeed Verizon shares). For investment into Vodafone, the current market consensus is that the shares are a buy. Vodafone is well-established and the disposal of the Verizon stake should result in greater focus on the European operation, which is struggling with economic constraints and fierce competition. Vodafone's acquisition of Kabel Deutschland is a clear statement of intent within this market. Elsewhere, Vodafone has not ruled out acquisitions in emerging markets, which currently account for 30% of its business and where the demographics are arguably developing in its favour. The announcement has been well received and I believe prospects for Vodafone remain promising. The share price has seen a 17% rise over the last year, as against 12% for the FTSE 100, and the current yield of 4.7% is supportive at least until the New Year when the deal completes. The consolidation makes the dividend yield subject to an interesting development. Vodafone announced an 8% increase in the 2014 full-year dividend to 11p and plans to grow it thereafter. In theory, if the consolidation is on a two-for-one basis as expected, the dividend yield could continue to be similar to the one currently seen. Once the terms of the consolidation are known the new yield can be calculated and re-evaluated. There are concerns Vodafone will now be lacking the cash Verizon Wireless provided, and will no longer have exposure to the US market. The company has decided, however, that now is the right time to take profits on Verizon Wireless in order to concentrate on mobile and unified communication services in both mature and emerging markets. The main thrust of this strategy is to be achieved through 'Project Spring', of which more details will be provided in due course, but which will involve "additional organic investments in 4G, 3G, fibre and broadband, enterprise services and improved customer experience across all of our markets." View our full research update following the Vodafone announcement The newly acquired Verizon stake Verizon Communications may not be well known to UK investors, but it is a major player in the US with a market value of $136 billion (£88 billion) prior to the deal. The deal reiterates Verizon's confidence in prospects in its home market, and the company benefits in a number of ways. It will no longer need to consult Vodafone on strategic decisions, which may give it a more nimble, competitive edge, plus it will free up cash as it no longer needs to pay Vodafone a dividend, which in turn should boost quarterly earnings. Furthermore, the increasing willingness of banks to lend, coupled with the appetite of institutional investors for high-quality corporate bonds, means raising funds for the acquisition is not considered to be a hurdle. This does not come without risk, however – Verizon has significantly increased its debt, which in turn could reduce some of its ability to generate free cash. This has led to a small downgrade in its credit outlook from Moody's. The current market consensus on Wall Street is that Verizon shares are a buy. What is still unknown These are our initial thoughts on the details as provided by both parties. The deal is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2014, preceded by a shareholder circular due for release in December 2013. Once these documents are released we will be able to answer: When the money and shares will be passed to shareholders? How Vodafone will return the money and Verizon shares to investors? – This could have tax implications. A 'special dividend' will be subject to income tax. The terms of the consolidation - how many shares will investors have in Vodafone going forward?
