looks good to me - i added on the dip

'Not sure how AAF will reduce its exposure to currency fluctuations' - couldn't they easily hedge that to lock in a rate?

A shame about the strong dependency on the relative currency strength of the African Nations compared with the dollar. Revenue growth and margin looks promising otherwise. Not sure how AAF will reduce its exposure to currency fluctuations as promised in this report.

Agreed Batty, the results I read show a much improved and improving position. We have been hit hard by exchange rate factors, whihc is largely beyond the influence of AAF.

Debt is being paid back, and fast. Another huge repayment has been budgeted in May. I am not in a position to add more, but at these prices I would if I could.

I don't think you can read much into it or assume a conspiracy. Given AAF has a minuscule free float and a large proportion of that is held by sovereign wealth funds it doesn't take much to push the price either way. In these circumstances I'm not surprised to hear it's the least traded FTSE100 company. I hope to be wrong but telecoms is out of favour at the moment, too, so I wouldn't get your hopes up too much.

I would imagine it's the typical semi-insider stuff that happens as we approach announcement of (another set of) results in a week or two - lots of people know how well they're doing and even if not gigantic breakout now, they are in a strong position, stable, delivering results for the most part.

I see no reason why these shouldn't return to the heady-heights of 150p + - just time - if it takes another year or two, fine. Dividends paid and at my price average they'll represent a decent yield through time.

Mittal, Bharti Airtel, owns 56% of AAF. Sharp cookie. That's good enough for me.

(Sharecast News) - The Sunday Times's Lucy Tobin told readers that shares of Airtel Africa were a 'buy', pointing to the telecom group's footprint in Africa and fast-growing money transfer unit.

FTSE-100 listed Airtel Africa was the second-largest operator in Africa serving 138m customers.

Its main markets in Nigeria, the Congo and Chad, as well as Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, all suffered from limited infrastructure, but enjoyed a burgeoning population and urban middle classes.

Customer count jumped by 10% in 2022 for 12% growth in revenues over the last nine months of the year.

Revenues at the mobile money-transfer arm surged by nearly a third during the previous year and a flotation of the unit was a possibility, which would translate into a bonanza for shareholders.

But don't bet your pension on the business, Tobin cautioned.

Competitors were stepping in and the region was both politically restless and prone to legal and regulatory uncertainty.

There was also Airtel Africa's restrictive ownership to contend with, what with 56% of the company controlled by Bharti Airtel.

Nevertheless, changing hands on a 2023 price-to-earnings multiple of 8.1, the shares were "cheap".

"For an investor who can stomach the risks of currency volatility, rocky politics, high spectrum costs and debt manoeuvrings, this company is a buy."

Welcome any new holders as a result of yesterday's ST tip. You have bought in at a great price. GL.

I’m waiting and might miss out.

However I can see over a longer period price dipping to the 80-90p zone. So I’m sitting on the sidelines at the moment and hoping for a lower entry point.

If it doesn’t get there such is life but dipping in at present is not the right point on the chart for me. Especially on the monthly.

It can be argued that AAF have overpaid for the spectrum licence.
My take is that they bit the bullet and made the deal, which was absolutely necessary for the future. So more good than bad, IMO.
Today's drop isn't really significant. Just the share price bouncing around.
