I don't think there's anything happening especially, just that the market is spotting value;

VOD
is a stock many investors are watching right now. VOD is currently sporting a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy), as well as a Value grade of A. The stock is trading with P/E ratio of 10.20 right now. For comparison, its industry sports an average P/E of 10.46. Over the last 12 months, VOD's Forward P/E has been as high as 12.20 and as low as 9.02, with a median of 10.03.

Another notable valuation metric for VOD is its P/B ratio of 0.35. The P/B ratio pits a stock's market value against its book value, which is defined as total assets minus total liabilities. This company's current P/B looks solid when compared to its industry's average P/B of 1.03. Over the past year, VOD's P/B has been as high as 0.57 and as low as 0.33, with a median of 0.38.

Value investors will likely look at more than just these metrics, but the above data helps show that Vodafone Group is likely undervalued currently. And when considering the strength of its earnings outlook, VOD sticks out at as one of the market's strongest value stocks.

Risk reward suggests that a share price around 70p is a bargain for VOD as at long last the telecoms should start climbing this wall of worry as the yield is great, if maintained by BT and VOD. The icing on the cake is that they are way undervalued so it does present an opportunity to tuck these away at these silly prices for the next 6 months or so.

PS - I bought today after watching for many months as I firmly believe the trend is upwards now!

Betaville signals renewed takeover interest in Vodafone Group.

Identity of the potential acquirer remains to be known.

Vodafone stock has lost about 35% in the trailing 12 months.

Here’s what we know so far

A potential acquirer may be working with Goldman Sachs on such a deal. But a different source that talked to Betaville on condition of anonymity said it’s Jefferies who has been hired instead.

justiceforthemany : The Imperialist : waterloo01 : The late Friday afternoon share price movement could be indicative of something more than rumour this time.Last experienced such with some Storehouse shares back in the late 90s subsequent to which Green made his move.

Talk is an American 'asset stripping manoeuvre' on the basis that 'the VOD share price has been screwed to totally unrealistic levels' ...in which case Verizon or AT&T ? Banks already sounded out. Move imminent. No indication of prospective offer price. 40per cent premium would be my guess....in which case something near to the 90p?

No doubt the W/E Financial Press scribblers are already hard at it?

Views?

The VOD share price is low partly because the UK market is depressed.
Never saw so many cut priced shares.
Some of the prices on a risk/ reward basis are stupidly low.

But the trend is down and the algo and momentum traders are programmed tome the trend their friend.
There seems to be a. buyers strike by the institutions.(that does not include me.)

I believe there is big money to be made, but it ay take years to come to fruition.Todays combined value of BT + VOD is about £30bn.
Amazing for these cash generating companies. Combined turnover about £60bn.
Telecoms companies valued at 50% of turnover.Amazing, strange times.

In normal times the share prices would be at least twice todays level.

Is Vodafone about to cut its dividend?

After Q3 results failed to resurrect demand for the shares, one team of City analysts outlines their expectations for the dividend, financial performance and latest price target.

A 40% cut in the Vodafone Group dividend has been forecast as the City prepares for a “more constructive” payout policy alongside May’s annual results.

Vodafone shares currently yield dividend income above 11%, fuelling expectations that a big reduction is in store for the mobile phone giant’s large band of retail investors.

Chief executive Margherita Della Valle will update capital allocation priorities once 4.1 billion euros (£3.5 billion) is banked from the imminent sale of its Spain operations.

The outcome of the review should be the focus of full-year results on 14 May, potentially removing a major source of uncertainty hanging over the stock.

The London market’s one-time biggest company continues to trade at its lowest level in over two decades, despite Della Valle’s restructuring efforts in Spain and Italy and the proposed merger of UK operations with Three owner Hutchison.

This week’s trading update also showed top-line momentum in several countries in Europe and Africa, but with Voda’s largest market of Germany still under pressure the shares are 7% lower year-to-date and below 65p this afternoon.

Bank of America says forecasting the financial outlook for Vodafone is complex and uncertain given that there are deals at various stages of progress in Spain, UK and Italy.

Its analysis suggests 2025-28 cash flows will be diluted 23% from pre-deal levels at an average 2.2 billion euros (£1.9 billion), below the 2.5 billion (£2.1 billion) current dividend outflow.

The bank said: “Our view is that while a brief period with the dividend uncovered could be considered, a three-to-four-year gap is too long and that Vodafone will choose to rebase the dividend lower to levels that could be guaranteed and used as a base to grow.”

It assumes that a cut of 40% will result in a more secure payout broadly in line with the wider sector and provide Vodafone with a buffer to deleverage.

Such a move would cut the annual dividend from nine euro cents (7.68p) to 5.4 euro cents (4.61p) a share, leading to a yield of 7%.

With the benefit of excess cash flows and disposal proceeds, the company can then consider one billion euros (£850 million) of share buybacks alongside 5% a year dividend growth.

The bank said: “As a 12% total return profile this is not unattractive and is perhaps the best way to see the ‘wood for the trees’ amid the complexity.”

This week’s note highlights a price target of 122p alongside a “buy” recommendation.

The bank added: “Restructuring is complex and Germany faces operational headwinds.

“However, looking through the complexity we envisage a new, more constructive shareholder remuneration policy and portfolio restructuring to provide scale and support better returns, or to exit where there is no route to do so.”

Among other City firms, UBS this week cut its price target by 2p to 98p but still has a “buy” rating. JP Morgan lowered from 88p to 80p with a “neutral”; stance.

Vodafone's strategic partnership with Microsoft might help to provide some momentum to the U.K. telecommunication company, which has been stuck in reverse for years, AJ Bell investment director Russ Mould writes in a note. By involving AI technology to develop new digital and financial services for SMEs in Africa and Europe and its cloud strategy, Vodafone might expect to boost its share price.

Vodafone to embrace AI with £1.2bn 10-year Microsoft deal

The deal will see the services distributed to its European and African markets

By Daniel Fessahaye

Updated: 11:09 GMT, 16 January 2024



Vodafone has agreed a 10-year partnership with US tech giant Microsoft that will see the London-listed firm embrace artificial intelligence and replace physical data centres.

The deal will see Britain's biggest telecom group invest $1.5billion (£1.2billion) in customer-facing AI developed with Microsoft's Azure OpenAI and Copilot technologies.

Services associated with the deal will be distributed to more than 300 million businesses and consumers across its European and African markets.

It means Vodafone customers could soon see complaints and enquiries handled by chatbots powered by the latest generative AI technology.


The Berkshire-based company will ultimately replace physical data centres with cheaper and scalable Azure cloud services.

The deal will also see Microsoft become an equity investor in Vodafone's managed IoT (Internet of Things) platform when it is becomes a standalone business by April 2024, and help scale Vodafone's mobile financial platform in Africa.

Vodafone's chief financial officer Luka Mucic said Microsoft's leadership in AI, underpinned by its OpenAI partnership, would transform the telcom firm's customer services.

He added that a Microsoft AI-underpinned TOBi chatbot would provide more consistent and intelligent responses to queries.


Margherita Della Valle, Vodafone chief executive, said: This unique strategic partnership with Microsoft will accelerate the digital transformation of our business customers, particularly small and medium-sized companies, and step up the quality of customer experience for consumers.'

Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO of Microsoft, added: 'This new generation of AI will unlock massive new opportunities for every organisation and every industry around the world.

'We are delighted that together with Vodafone we will apply the latest cloud and AI technology to enhance the customer experience of hundreds of millions of people and businesses across Africa and Europe, build new products and services, and accelerate the company's transition to the cloud.'

The news comes following Vodafone's agreed merger with Three's British division, which would make the enlarged company the biggest telecoms operator in the UK, with more than 27 million subscribers.

Over a decade, the pair have pledged to invest £11billion to deliver 'one of Europe's most advanced standalone 5G networks'.

The deal is currently being investigated by the Competition and Markets Authority amid concerns that it would lead to a 'substantial lessening of competition' in the telecoms industry.

Unite the union has claimed the merger could lead to mobile phone bills rising by £300 per year, although Three's general counsel, Stephen Lerner, has said that no price hikes were being planned.

Vodafone's operating profits fell by 44.2 per cent to €1.7billion in the six months ending September, following the sale of Vantage Towers, Vodafone Hungary and Vodafone Ghana, as well as 'adverse' foreign exchange movements.

These factors also drove the firm's turnover roughly €1billion lower to €21.9billion, even though organic service revenue rose thanks to solid performances across the UK and Africa.

Vodafone shares were up 0.13 per cent to 67.25p in Tuesday morning trading.
