jrphoenixw2: hTTp:// Moving the share price wasn't the aim. 'The sole purpose of this Programme was to reduce the issued share capital of Vodafone and thereby to avoid any change in Vodafone's issued share capital as a result of the maturing of the first tranche of a two-tranche mandatory convertible bond ('MCB') issued by Vodafone in February 2016. ... The purchased shares are being held as treasury shares. Following the settlement of the shares purchased on 15 November 2017, Vodafone will hold 2,140,915,389 of its ordinary shares in treasury and have 26,673,804,179 ordinary shares in issue (excluding treasury shares). ' Treasury shares aren't entitled to divs. It appears the result is that there is now no risk of dilution of the div/per share, from the maturing of the convertible.
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.
maddox: This is a very interesting situation. Whilst the share buy-back programme is set to match the shares being issued through the MCB - The question is whether the MCB holders will sell or retain their VOD shares? If MCB holders sell below 217p they will be losing money, so they may hold off in hope of a better price. Of course, we don't know the precise instructions given to JPM - specifically up to what price they can buy-back shares? The shares were issued on the 25th Aug and the price today ended a shade under 217p. JPM's buy-back programme doesn't commence until 31st but must end by 15th Dec. Over this period VOD's share price is going to be subject to the balance of MCB sellers and JPM buy-backs. On the one hand, if the MCB holders are happy to exit at a breakeven price then we'll be lucky to see the price much above 217p until they are cleared out of stock. On the other, JPM may need to entice them into selling by bidding up the price and thus for MCB holders to hold-off selling, to force their hand. On balance, I suspect that VOD will want to clear-out the MCB holders as cheaply as possible and thus we are going to see the share price stuck at c. 217p for the next couple of months at least. Regards, Maddox
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
veryniceperson: Just reading about the budget. He has dropped the capital gains tax rate down from 28% to 20% for higher rate and 18% to 10% lower rate. They rekon could be a shot in the arm for the stock market. Any views, very quite here of late. Anyway back on topic Vod share price seems to be holding up well.
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.
darias: "If you had done your home work you also would have known that the VOD share price should be unaffected meaning the share price will not drop by the 112p dividend, that it's the number of VOD shares in issue that's going to fall roughly by half, and not the SP, according to VOD's CFO Andy Halford." The share price has to be related to something. Partly it is due to the number of shares but mostly it is due to the confidence that the market has in the organisation. Andy Halford cannot control or predict the share price any more than you or I. If the share price is to half it means that the company is going to use the capital receipts to buy back shares. I cannot see that a company currently valued and struggling to maintain a share price of £2:66, is going to receive a capital receipt amounting to around 1 half of its actual value and then pay out a dividend amounting to half that capital value can maintain its share price and will be wasting its money on a massive share buy back from the hoped for profits of a reduced company. We will be very fortunate to achieve £3 before April and like you I will be out if that is achieved. As soon as it goes ex before the special dividend is paid this will drop like a stone.
