GS on VOD: +ve in that Emirates Telecom has further increased its stake in Vodafone to 12% of Vodafone’s issued share capital.it says that the “investment rationale is unchanged from our 14th of May 2022, specifically to obtain significant exposure to a global leader, and leverage potential commercial partnership and realise future return on our investment.”
Separately the Economic Times reporting that Bharti Airtel won't use its right to oppose a potential deal if Vodafone Group finds an external suitor for its 21.05% stake in Indus.

Apparently well received by the market.

I think we will undoubtedly see a very significant divi cut. The first action of whoever does come in as CEO will be to chop it.

Todays FT carries a story where Olaf Swantee, who is seen as one of the frontrunners to become CEO of Vodafone, warned that many telecoms groups had got themselves into a “death spiral” of offering investors high dividends, which was stifling their ability to invest and innovate.

“When you don’t have growth in your model, and you just have a dividend story, the risk is that over a longer period of time, you can’t transform your business anymore, you’re just a bank for your investors,” he said. “The telcos that are stuck in a high debt/ebitda ratio . . . they are having a harder time to transform themselves successfully.”

All Vodafone are doing at the moment is spending huge sums on infrastructure so we as users can demand more and more data for nothing streaming the likes of Netflix , Amazon and now ITV x . All are calls and video calls are free using WiFi . Market so competitive no pricing power. All not sustainable unless there is a major change to what we pay or the likes of the above pay are charged or contribute to infrastructure to distribute their product through. We in effect pay a standing charge and that’s it no matter what we use. Imagine that for a utility. The only way for VOD to turn is for a wholesale change in how WiFi is perceived and paid for . I could go on but in my view one could see the loss of VOD as national disaster . The government would have to get involved. It’s time that the is a major change to telecom industry and its importance. Just imagine losing this provider.

The industry is transitioning to 5G Vodafone will be a leading player

Vodafone Deploys 5G Mobile to Five Additional UK Airports


There are large investors buying in

They are on the cusp of a new heavyweight CEO appointment

They are forecast to make pre tax profits 5.2 billion Euros up from 4.9 Billion

The dividend yield at these levels is 9%

They are in very advanced talks with 3 to merge the UK operations the become the largest player in the UK.In current climate I think the Gov will green light it as they want to be seen a pro business.

You are able to buy the shares at multi decade lows

I think much safer place to park money than say the S&P 500 index

Not short but a long term holder.
Reasons off the top of my head.
Debt, inability to move business forward, 5G is a massive damp squib. Chart is also abysmal. Why would you buy


With the stock easing to 90p after a weak US stock market close, it breaks chart rules to consider buying Vodafone.

A sense of intrinsic value is speculative given earnings and dividend projections look rosy, relative to the likelihood of a 2023 global recession.

Genuine contrarian investing means having reasons to buck prevailing sentiment, which in Vodafone’s case implies waiting for an accomplished CEO to declare his or her agenda.

The dilemma is the stock likely having jumped by that time, hence a case, according to your risk appetite, for reasoning the asset base already looks ripe for streamlining – and realising cash, to help cut debt. In which case: Buy.

Debt is rising because VOD are paying out about 2.5bn Eu in dividends and buying shares back to take advantage of lower prices.
Cost of capital is lower than the cost of dividend.

Also business has been difficult of late for the reasons we all know about,. Germany the most important market is softer, and Turkey is in a mess.
Cost of 5g and other capital demands weigh.

Considering these factors, a perfect storm, VOD is doing quite well.

Obviously we a need a bit of luck and going forward a different attitude and improved performance from the management.

Vodafone's Dividend in the Crosshairs Following CEO Departure

1026 GMT - Vodafone's dividend policy may come under review following Nick Read's decision to step down as chief executive officer, Jefferies analysts Jerry Dellis and Yi Hsin Yeoh say in a research note. The U.K. telecommunications company's board appears to appreciate the size of the challenges it faces and is now looking to accelerate the recovery of shareholder value, they say. Vodafone faces significant headwinds, which lead the analysts to question the dividend policy going forward. Interim CEO and current Chief Financial Officer Margherita Della Valle is said to be in the running for the top job on a permanent basis. Jefferies has a hold rating on the stock with a 100 pence price target. (kyle.morris@dowjones.com)

Vodafone CEO Nick Read Steps Down; CFO Named as Interim

Vodafone Group PLC said Monday that Nick Read has agreed to step down as chief executive and that current Chief Financial Officer Margherita Della Valle has been appointed as interim chief executive.

‘Nick Read’s decision to step down as CEO suggests that the board appreciates the scale of the challenges it faces, and is now intent on injecting some urgency into the recovery of shareholder value,’ commented Jefferies.

‘However, the next question is what solutions are really available to the next CEO? Vodafone faces intractable headwinds. We think dividend policy should be treated as under review.’

Last month, Vodafone declared an interim dividend of 4.50 euro cents, unchanged from a year prior.
