anony mous: July 24 2018 INVESTOMANIA Why has Vodafone Group plc ended up on a 7%+ dividend yield? The Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD)share price currently has a dividend yield of over 7%. In my view, this suggests that investors are uncertain about its future prospects, with its bottom line due to fall by around 6% in the current financial year. Added to this is the risk that comes with a change in CEO. The current CEO has delivered an improved business over his ten years in charge in my view. In that time, the company has made multiple acquisitions, as well as disposing of its stake in Verizon Wireless. Today, it seems to be in a stronger position, and growth could be ahead over the medium term. In fact, Vodafone is expected to record a rise in EPS of 15% in the next financial year. This is relatively impressive compared to other telecom stocks that are listed in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. And with it having such a high dividend yield, it may offer a margin of safety that causes its stock price to generate improving performance in future years. Although the stock has a forward PE ratio of around 21 for the current year, its PEG ratio works out as around 1.4 using next year’s double-digit EPS growth rate. This suggests to me that the Vodafone share price could be undervalued at the moment, and that it may be able to offer not only a high income return, but the potential for a rising share price. Given the level of investment that the business has made in its network and in new businesses in recent years, it seems to be in a relatively strong position versus a number of its sector peers. As a result, I remain optimistic about its long-term investment prospects – even if the stock market seems unsure about its future share price path.
clive7878: Surely VOD share price should be doing better than of late. Even Verison has done poorly.
woodhawk: I don't need to see an "attainment breakdown for the referendum voting results". I already know the overwhelming majority of Brexiteers were senile or thick, xenophobic morons. But what has that to do with the VOD share price?
leoneobull: Why 6% yielder Vodafone’s share price could smash the FTSE 100 this year Roland Head | Tuesday, 15th May, 2018 | More on: VOD Image source: Getty Images. The Vodafone Group (LSE: VOD) share price fell by 3.5% in early trade this morning, after the FTSE 100 telecoms giant announced the departure of chief executive Vittorio Colao. The news overshadowed a solid set of results from the firm. Organic revenue rose by 1.6% to €41,066m during the year to 31 March, while operating profit climbed 15.4% to €4.3bn. Adjusted earnings rose by 44% to 11.59 euro cents per share, beating consensus forecasts for earnings of 10 euro cents per share. Vodafone shares have lagged the FTSE 100 over the last year, falling by about 5% while the FTSE has risen by about 3%. In this piece I’ll explain why I think Vodafone is now well positioned to roar ahead of the FTSE. Ready for the future During Mr Colao’s 10 years in charge, he’s made a number of changes. The company’s mobile customer base has doubled from 269m to 536m. By making selected acquisitions and disposals, he’s focused the group on countries where it has scale and opportunity for long-term growth. Last week the company announced an €18bn deal to buy Liberty Global’s German and Eastern Europe cable networks. When this completes, Vodafone will have both the largest mobile network and the largest cable and fibre network in Europe. This should leave the group in a good position to deliver modern, converged services — data-focused products that allow subscribers access to all of their digital services, all of the time. What comes next? This transformation hasn’t been without cost. The group’s net debt of €31.5bn represents 2.1 times adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA). That’s at the upper end of what I’m comfortable with. However, I don’t expect this figure to rise much further in the hands of Mr Colao’s successor, chief financial officer Nick Read. Mr Read says that his job will be to get the most of out of the firm’s assets and to oversee the integration of recent acquisitions. I expect this to gradually deliver higher profits while maintaining the group’s strong cash generation. A cash machine Vodafone’s free cash flow before spectrum payments rose by 34% to €5,417m last year. Including spectrum payments, free cash flow was 22% higher at €4,044m. This works out at about 15.2 cents per share, providing free cash flow cover for the group’s dividend payout of 15.07 cents. At today’s exchange rates, this payout gives a dividend yield of 6.6%. And although this payout isn’t covered by earnings, I believe the group’s strong cash generation should mean that the dividend remains safe for the foreseeable future. What comes next? the incoming chief executive will be expected to address Vodafone’s main weakness, its lack of growth. Group revenue has only risen by an average of 1% per year since 2012 and was 2.2% lower last year, at €46,571m. Profits recovered last year but are expected to be flat in 2018/19. Today’s guidance for the coming year suggests that adjusted EBITDA will be between €14.15bn and €14.65bn this time, compared to last year’s figure of €14.7bn. On this basis the shares look expensive, on about 22 times forecast earnings. But given that the 6% dividend is backed by free cash flow, I think the stock could be a good buy for income investors.
christh: FROM THE SHARES MAGAZINE Issue: 12 Oct 2017 - Page 12 ------------------------------------------ Growth in Europe and peer-beating dividends on offer 12 October 2017 One of the largest communications network providers, Vodafone (VOD) supplies more than 523m mobile customers worldwide. The FTSE 100 mega-cap is also a staple portfolio stock for thousands of investors thanks to its substantial dividend. This year’s expected income of around €0.15 per share (the group reports in euros) implies a 6.3% yield, the fifth highest on the FTSE 100. The dividend looks secure, in our opinion. The market waking up to this fact could result in a share price re-rating towards 280p levels, going by the target price of investment bank UBS. Share price drag The stock has nudged lower because of competition worries and thanks to the strengthening pound versus the euro. Aggressive promotions are anticipated from Iliad, a new entrant in Italy where Vodafone earns about 12% of its service revenue. We believe the group has the financial muscle and brand strength to bat this threat off over the medium-term. Vodafone faced a similar problem in India in the recent past, but that cut-throat battle is easing off. Returning to growth While the market has homed in on these negatives, it seems to be underplaying success elsewhere in Europe, and emerging economies in Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific (AMAP). This is thanks to Vodafone’s unified communication strategy which combines high-quality voice, data, cloud for business, and entertainment services across a wide range of technologies and screens to both consumers and enterprises. Various countries are also providing hefty subsidies to encourage broadband deployment. Germany, for example, has earmarked €24bn over the next few years, and Vodafone is one of the best funded and biggest investors. Most analysts anticipate the first real growth from Vodafone in years. Estimates imply mid-single digit pre-tax profit expansion this year to 31 March 2018, and underlying revenue progress. There is also scope for another hefty chunk of costs to be stripped away, with the company eyeing €7bn in savings. Discount valuation Net debt of €32bn this year would be balanced by anticipated €72bn net assets. More than €5bn of free cash flow is expected, comfortably covering the €4.1bn dividend bill. The stock trades on a 7% equity free cash flow yield, according to UBS, and promises a significantly more attractive income yield than either the average for its sector (4.5%) or the FTSE 100, which averages at about 4%. A 280p share price would bring the yield down to 4.8%, roughly in line with peers.
goldpiguk: Hi diku, I agree that brokers can live in a fantasy world. Like share traders though they are part of the market - brokers have clients who listen to them and act on their opinion. Ignoring market participants is in my opinion a little blinkered. In the case of VOD most brokers are saying buy. In the case of Monty he is saying short term this is a sell. That makes the market. I listen to them all and form my own opinion. As a LTBH investor Monty can be helpful in picking buying points. The brokers can be equally useful in providing a slightly longer term perspective on the underlying outlook for a company. Once I have purchased a share I ignore the noise, usually adding to a holding on weakness. Although I have 10,000 VOD shares in my ISA I am currently considering adding, so short term VOD share price movements are of more interest than usual. Goldpig
casino444: vod share price being held back for what ever reason ?? gets to 225 then drops , will the pattern ever change
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: 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.
