Vodaphone (VOD)     

optomistic - 28 Jul 2004 09:53

Typical day for Vodaphone only today the price is rising, hope it keeps that way. Notice a buy trade has just gone through for 2.5 million shares. I like that sort of confidence!!

i would of thought this size trade for the most traded share on the market was uite regular. I am following this share and cannot make up my mind which way it will go. BULL points low share price, 3g advancements, could easily end up oversold, growth story. BEAR points - instituitions selling out of pension funds, squeezed margins due to competition and oftel saying prices are too much. I think bears are winning. Anybody like to add anything? Have i missed anything.

Hi Kivver,
Chairman showing concern over share price and considering increasing the buy back and dividends, could help to get this one to turn the corner. IMO it is just a question of time for the upturn to happen, perhaps it's just my optimistic nature that leads me to beleive it is not far away. Some encouraging news on Japan would certainly help.

i think it will go a little lower yet (be oversold) then i will be in because long term the only way is up.

Increasing divi and share buybacks would be welcome - yield on this is
pretty pathetic!

Good interims on Monday, much better than I was expecting, or I think the market was. Turnover up 17.1% and profits up 10.3% to 7.2bn, even the divi has been tweaked by 3.2% to 2.57p. They have been helped by having a large proportion of earnings in Euros and Dollars, but these are very positive results in todays markets.

The sp is now up to 124p from a low of about 108p earlier this week.

Vodafone Essar, controlled by Britain's Vodafone Plc , had 56.7 million users at the end of October, 2.1 million more than a month earlier.

I`m absolutely kicking myself for not getting in at sub 1 where it was a few weeks back during parts of the day. Will get in if drops below 1.10, good long term hold in a huge market.

HARRYCAT - 25 Nov 2008 23:22 - 11 of 15

Tricky to say where the sp is heading. Just gone ex-divi & the Directors seem happy buying at +/- 113p. I agree that it is an ever growing market, but hope they don't overstretch themselves & have to cut the 2009 divi.

tipton11 - 26 Nov 2008 19:20 - 12 of 15

they put 1bn into buy back programme to improve sp ... can anyone give me a single instance where buy back has improved the price ... when will directors learn the easy way, possibly the only way, is to increase the dividend
