Vodafone to Buy Spain's Ono for $10 Billion (VOD)Mar 17, 2014On 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%.Expand to read the full story

Deutsche Bank Upgrades Vodafone to "Buy" on Possible Verizon Wireless Deal (VOD)Jun 28, 2013Deutsche 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.
