  • Vodafone to Buy Spain's Ono for $10 Billion (VOD)

    On Monday, telecom company Vodafone Group (VOD) announced its plans to buy Spain's cable operator Ono. Vodafone has agreed to buy Ono for 7.2 billion euros, or $10 billion. The company stated it would use some of the $130 billion proceeds from the sale of its U.S. arm to acquire private-equity owned Ono. Spain's Ono is the largest cable operator in the country, serving 1.9 million customers. Vodafone has primarily focused on mobile, but with the purchase of Ono and Germany's Kabel Deutschland Holding AG (which it bought last year), the company hopes to add internet and TV services across Europe, as well as a way to compensate for falling mobile revenue. Vodafone shares traded 1.30% higher during the session. Year-to-date, the stock is down 6.67%.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Vodafone Group (VOD) currently yield 14.66% based on Monday's closing price of $37.46 and its annual payout of $5.49 per share.

  • Deutsche Bank Upgrades Vodafone to "Buy" on Possible Verizon Wireless Deal (VOD)

    Deutsche Bank analysts believe that a deal with Verizon (VZ) , or another company, for Vodafone Group's (VOD) stake in Verizon Wireless is increasingly likely. As such, the analysts upgraded the British telecom company on Friday. The analysts upgraded VOD from "Hold" to "Buy." Duetsche Bank analyst David Wright said, "We believe that recent developments increase the likelihood of a Verizon Wireless deal in the near term. Whether VOD sells its stake, or Verizon instigates a Group based merger/acquisition, we think a deal could crystalise value that is not currently reflected in Vodafone's." "We think a KDG deal, consistent with our convergent thesis, is likely the tipping point for a VZW deal. Leverage is now high, and VOD needs to preserve liquidity for its European turnaround. Furthermore there is value maximisation to consider with US competition getting tougher. With a deal looking more probable and consensus having rebased after a tough H2," Wright added. Vodafone shares were up 4 cents, or 0.14%, during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 12.82% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Vodafone Group (VOD) have a dividend yield of 7.21% based on last night's closing price of $28.42 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $2.05 per share. Vodafone Group (VOD) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.

  • Vodafone Fiscal 2013 Profit Plummets Due to Impairment Charges (VOD)

    Early on Tuesday, British telecom giant Vodafone Group plc (VOD) reported a steep decline in profit for the full year ending March 31, 2013 as the company was negatively impacted by impairment charges and a dip in revenue for the first time since 2005. The Newbury, England-based company said its full year earnings was £429 million, or 87 pence per share, versus £6.957 billion, or 13.65 pence per share, earned a year earlier. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share was recorded at 15.65 pence. The 94% decline earnings was drive by a £7.7 billion impairment charge record to offset the gain on the acquisition of CWW. Before taxes, profit was £3.255 billion down from £9.549 billion in 2012. The company's annual revenues dipped as well, coming in 4.2% lower to £44.45 billion. Group service revenue fell 4.5% to £40.94 billion. However, a bright spot for Vodafone was the service revenue gained from Verizon Wireless, a partnership with Verizon Communications (VZ) . Verizon Wireless service revenue grew 8.1% versus last year. Vodafone's share of profits from the joint venture was £6.4 billion, up 30.5% compared to the earlier year. Last week, Verizon Wireless said that it was going to pay a $7 billion dividend to its parents. Out of that $7 billion, Vodafone will get $3.19 billion, or £2.1 billion. Rather than return that to shareholders, Vodafone will retain it and utilize it to fund its business. For fiscal 2014, Vodafone expects to see operating profit between £12.0 billion and £12.8 billion. Adjusted operating profit for fiscal 2013 was £11.96 billion. Vodafone shares were up 6 cents, or +0.18%, during morning trading on Tuesday. The stock is up +19.73% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Vodafone (VOD) have a dividend yield of 3.39% based on Tuesday's intraday trading price of $30.10 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.02 per share.
