2vdm: Always difficult as AAF are expanding to capture markets for the future. However I agree it is the risk here. A fine balancing act. However this is no tiddler which can afford high level CFO, economists etc and I'm sure the BOD will be just as aware of the risks as we are.
2vdm: Good to see John Danilovich, a non-excutive director of AAF buying £97K's worth of shares at just over 159p today.

la forge: Bharti Airtel's African Arm Books Higher Consolidated Profit in Fiscal Q4 05/12/2022 | 11:12am BST (MT Newswires) -- Airtel Africa said its consolidated profit attributable to the owners climbed to $190 million in the fiscal fourth quarter from $132 million a year ago. Basic earnings per share for the three months ended March 31 rose to $0.051 from $0.035 a year earlier. Revenue of the African arm of Indian telecom Bharti Airtel (NSE:BHARTIARTL, BOM:532454) jumped year on year to $1.22 billion from $1.04 billion but narrowly missed the $1.23 billion revenue estimate by analysts polled by Visible Alpha. The board of the company declared a final dividend of $0.03 per share for the fiscal year. Price (INR): ₹705.40, Change: ₹-17.45, Percent Change: -2.41%
la forge: MIDAS SHARE TIPS UPDATE: Phone tip's hotline to growth as Airtel's share price shoots up By Joanne Hart, Financial Mail on Sunday Published: 21:53 BST, 14 May 2022 | Updated: 09:55 BST, 15 May 2022 It is hard to believe that smartphones were invented less than 20 years ago. Back then, mobile phones were a luxury, even an oddity. Today, few people in this country can imagine life without one. In Africa, however, the situation is very different. Little more than half the continent's 1.4billion population have a mobile phone. Most of those – some 500million people – have rudimentary models that can just about make and receive calls or send text messages. For Airtel Africa, this is a huge opportunity. The company operates in 14 countries across Africa, from Nigeria to Madagascar. The second largest telecoms business in Africa, it is also the leading provider of mobile money services, which allow customers to use their phone like a mini bank. Networking: Airtel operates in 14 countries across Africa, from Nigeria to Madagascar But the group still has fewer than 130million customers so the opportunity for growth is clear. And Airtel is better positioned than most to add new customers to its roster and help existing ones to move to smartphones. The group has been investing heavily so it can offer the 4G connectivity which allows smartphones to access the internet swiftly and easily. Airtel also has thousands of tiny kiosks in rural areas, so that people can buy phones and related services without having to travel for miles. Results for the year to March 31, released last week, showed that turnover rose 21 per cent to $4.7billion (£3.8billion), while profits rose 37 per cent to $1.5billion and the dividend climbed 25 per cent to 5 cents a share (equivalent to just over 4p for UK shareholders). Further strong growth is expected. Africa has been hit hard, as the cost of food and fuel has soared. Against that, many people are now back at work following the pandemic so they are earning more than they have done in recent years. Africa also has the youngest population in the world, most of whom are desperate to have a device which allows them to listen to music, watch TikTok and use SnapChat, just like children do here. More importantly, phones offer African consumers a route to greater prosperity and better education, even if they live in remote villages or have never been able to obtain a bank account. Midas verdict: Midas recommended Airtel in August 2020, when the shares were 57p. Today they are £1.38 and brokers believe they should rise to at least £1.60. Any company operating in Africa carries an element of risk so cautious shareholders should take profits now. The more adventurous should hang on to their stock. Airtel is ambitious, growing fast and it is empowering millions of Africans along the way. Traded on: Main market Ticker: AAF Contact: or 020 7493 9315
tole:'s 1 FTSE 250 stock making huge strides in an emerging market!Jabran Khan | Friday, 17th December, 2021 | More on: AAFFTSE 250 incumbent Airtel Africa (LSE:AAF) is making significant progress in Africa, an emerging economic region. Based on recent news and current share price levels, should I add the shares to my holdings?African economyAirtel Africa is a provider of telecommunications and mobile money services as well as banking in Africa. It currently provides services and has a presence in 14 of the continent's countries. Infrastructure spending in emerging markets is booming and expected to continue for the foreseeable future.As I write, shares in Airtel are trading for 127p, whereas a year ago they were trading for 77p. This is a 64% return over a 12-month period. The FTSE 250 index has only returned 12% in the same period. Airtel shares are currently trading close to all-time highs.Recent developments and performanceAirtel Africa last month reported its subsidiary SMARTCASH Payment Service Bank Limited has received approval in principle to operate a payment service bank business in Nigeria. This is a major deal for Airtel as this particular area of banking is growing fast in many African economies. Currently, there is a low level of banking products in the continent but wealth is rising, meaning there is demand for such products. Airtel should benefit from this.Airtel also announced another major partnership in October. This was a partnership with payment firm Flutterwave. The partnership would see Airtel access further African countries and markets it has not broken into previously. This should help boost growth ahead.Airtel's most recent trading update, a half-year report for the period ending September 2021, was excellent. Revenue increased by over 25% compared to the same period last year. This was underpinned by growth in all its regions. Customer levels were up and it saw cash flow increase by over 40% to supplement its balance sheet. An interim dividend of 2 cents per share was declared, up from 1.5 cents in the same period last year.FTSE 250 stocks have risks tooAirtel Africa's operations are all centred around emerging markets, which is risky. When economic fluctuations and downturns occur, emerging economies can be the most volatile. Despite recent progress, the pandemic-related macroeconomic pressures could halt progress and growth if they were to continue. I view this as a short- to medium-term risk, however. Airtel also continues its growth trajectory through partnerships and acquisitions. Sometimes, corporate acquisition and partnerships don't always yield growth and positive returns. This can also be more prevalent in emerging markets. Debt levels are also a bit higher than I would usually like. Overall I like Airtel Africa as a company and would add the shares to my holdings at current levels. Despite trading close to all-time highs, it still looks cheap with a price-to-earnings ratio of 12. In addition, it seems to have a clear path for growth and boosting its offering and profile. If growth and performance continues, investor returns should increase such as via dividends, which will likely make me a passive incom
tole: profit growth! A 'no-brainer' FTSE 250 stock I'd buy todayStuart Blair | Thursday, 28th October, 2021 | More on: AAFImage depicting web connectivity from a mobile phone Image source: Getty Images.Since its lows in May last year, the Airtel Africa (LSE: AAF) share price has tripled in value. This is mainly due to its recovery from the pandemic, as highlighted by a series of excellent results. Today was no different, with the FTSE 250 stock reporting profit before tax growth of 101% for its latest six months. This has seen the Airtel Africa share price rise over 10% today. As such, following the trading update, I'm very tempted to add more Airtel Africa shares to my portfolio. Here's why.Trading updateThe half-year trading update was strong across the board. Indeed, in comparison to the same period last year, revenues were 25% higher at $2.272bn. Further, the group saw revenue growth in each of its different segments, with mobile money showing particularly robust growth of 42%. This demonstrates that the company is still growing quickly.And unlike many other growth stocks, Airtel Africa is also recording strong profits, and it said profit before tax totalled $567m. As already stated, this is a 101% increase on last year's results. As profits rose quicker than revenues, it shows that the company is improving its operating efficiency. This is a good sign for the future, and hopefully, profits can continue to grow.The group's current profitability also means that the stock trades on a cheap valuation. In fact, using these results, Airtel Africa has a price-to-earnings ratio of around 9. This is lower than a large majority of other FTSE 250 stocks, and ratios under 10 often indicate that growth is either slow or negative. As this doesn't seem the case with Airtel Africa, I feel that it's undervalued.Other factorsNevertheless, this low P/E ratio may reflect some of the risks associated with the group. For example, while Africa is seen as a high-growth area, it's also seen as very unpredictable. In fact, Sub-Saharan Africa has recently experienced a third wave of coronavirus, caused due to vaccination levels remaining very low. Many African currencies, such as the Nigerian naira and the Zambian kwacha, have also seen devaluations recently. Both these factors may have a negative impact on Airtel Africa, something which makes it riskier than some other FTSE 250 stocks.But I'm confident that it can cope with these problems. For instance, the company has managed to consistently grow its customer base, which most recently reached 122.7m. The balance sheet has also been steadily improving, and net-debt-to-underlying EBITDA is now only 1.5x. I feel that this is sustainable.What am I doing with this FTSE 250 stock?Airtel Africa makes up the largest part of my portfolio, and I'm still tempted to buy more. Its growth is excellent, and it's accompanied with a dividend of around 4%. Its subsidiary, Airtel Money, is also delivering excellent growth, and this has prompted an investment from Mastercard. As such, while there are no doubt risks associated with this stock, there are too many positives to ignore in my view. Therefore, I believe that Airtel Africa is a 'no-brainer' buy for me so I may buy more.
