+ Watch VOD
on My Watchlist
Vodafone connects people throughout Europe and beyond, providing wireless voice and data services.
Cashing in on Verizon sale and investing in strong growth markets and strategies.
Early first pick for this portfolio. Has been both up and down, but holding has reduced my start price.Div. (Yield) $2.06 (4.3%) (wrong....5.8%)Current Yield 9.0%
Growth and yield.
60% of their profit came from Verizon.
Cash used from VZ stake buy out will boost opportunity for expansion in other parts of world and make happy shareholders.
Dividend should be pretty great!
It will beat the S&P.
With VOD owning 45% of VZ, it's likely VZ will buy it out, otherwise, Vodafone is expanding it's businesses from U.K and Europe into Eastern Europe, Mid East, and especially, the EXPLODING AFRICAN CONTINENT!
real money: mom and kids
Great Price to Accumulate, Owns 45% of verizon which itself is reason to buy which fetches at least $20 when Verizon buys the shares from Vodafone, Also, I believe Kabel Deutschland deal will go through , In addition to all this there is very good dividend to wait for the right time.
nice dividend ,while waiting for big payout fronm verizon
as the economic situation in europe stabilizes, vodafone will stabilize. further consolidation potential in telco industry and potential verizon wireless buyout provides upside
Possible take over, big dividend, low P/E
The second largest mobile company in the world, after China Mobile. They have had a growth of 100 million customers from 2011 to 2012 and is therefore close to half a billion customers. They are present in something like half of the world.I imagine that Vodafone sooner or later will provide some sort of international subscription, that will be attractive to many people (business and travelling) and be hard to compete with for other mobile operators.The need for mobile voice and data is growing. It provides a comfort that people do not want to be without once they have become accustomed to it.They have a low price / book ratio of 1.3, and they provide a good dividend of approx. 3.5%.So I consider this a good growth stock with a nice dividend.I personally used their service in Germany and Dominican Republic on vacations, buying a local sim, and I was very satisfied by their 3G coverage. The service in Germany was very good. The service in Dominican Republic was bad to put it mildly, but that's the standard outside the tourist resorts.
Deej has a nice write up on the subject here: http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/after-all-these-years/791463Basically the thought is that VOD owns a large stake in Verizon wireless and the market is not recognizing this. Add into the mix that Verizon currently pays VOD a nice dividend annually for their Verizon wireless stake and that this is a David einhorn pick and the odds are in your favor!Picked up some shares at 26 and will hold until this thesis plays out or things drastically change. You get a pretty nice dividend to sit and wait as well so no reason to hurry and sell this one.
high div commitment. income is diversified presently by Verizon ownership and European footprint.
