Vodafone shares have dropped sharply. Should I buy?

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Nadia Yaqub | Thursday, 20th May, 2021 | More on: VOD “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Vodafone (LSE: VOD) shares have fallen sharply this week so far. The telecoms giant released its full-year results on Tuesday. And investors weren’t impressed by the numbers.So is this dip a buying opportunity? For me, it isn’t. I’ve been bearish on Vodafone shares and the latest set of figures hasn’t changed my mind. But I think the results are worth a closer look.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The numbersIn my opinion, Vodafone’s full-year results were sluggish. Total revenue fell by 2.6% to €43.8bn, which wasn’t impressive.The company stated that “good underlying momentum and the benefit from the acquisition of Liberty Global’s assets in Germany and Central and Eastern Europe was offset by lower revenue from roaming, visitors and handset sales, adverse foreign exchange movements and the disposal of Vodafone New Zealand”.Adjusted EBITDA came in at the €14.4bn. This was at the lower end of the company’s guidance range of €14.4bn to €14.6bn. The market didn’t like this and so the shares have been falling since the announcement.Free cash flow also fell by a hefty 11.9%. This significant fall was due to Vodafone’s investment in its network. While I think the rollout of 5G is exciting, it comes at a cost. This means that it may place pressure on future cash flow.Bright sideI’m pleased to say that there was some positive news as well. Vodafone managed to maintain its dividend. It dished out a final income payment of 4.5 euro cents, taking its full-year payout to 9 euro cents. At least it was in line with 2020’s dividend.My concern with the telecoms giant has been its mammoth debt pile. But it’s encouraging to see that it reduced its net debt position by €1.5bn to €40.5bn. This was due to the money from the Vantage Towers IPO, as well as its free cash flow.The net proceeds from this IPO were earmarked to reduce Vodafone’s debt. So I’m pleased it actually did what it said it was going to do.Should I buy Vodafone shares?I’m not convinced by the investment case for Vodafone shares, however. It faces fierce competition and as I said, cash flow is likely to be hit by upgrading its network to 5G.Consumers are fickle and are likely to go with the cheapest deal. I guess there are cross-selling opportunities with the acquired Liberty businesses. It can lock in customers by offering them multiple products, but this will take time.Vodafone shares certainly offer an attractive dividend yield, currently 6%. For the income-seeking investor, like me, this sounds enticing. But it’s worth remembering that the performance of the stock price hasn’t been great over the past few years. Also the dividend isn’t fully covered by its earnings.In terms of the company’s strategy, it’s focused on driving shareholder returns through deleveraging the business, improving return on capital, as well as the committing to its dividend.That’s all very laudable. But I think there are better opportunities to invest my money in. I’ll give Vodafone shares a miss for now. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Rounds 1 & 2

smgzehobt

first_imgFriday Feb 26, 2010 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Rounds 1 & 2 As we head into Round 3 of the Super 14, we look back at the best tries scored in the last two weekend’s of rugby with our regular slot here on Rugbydump, the Super 14 Pick of the Week.While Round 1 didn’t have too many to pick from, hence the delayed posting, Round 2 produced a feast of tries as the new application of the laws kicked into full effect as we saw fifty-pointers in both Johannesburg, and just up the road, in Pretoria.While there’s no new laws to speak of, the way in which the refs are now governing certain areas of the game will mean that the attacking side will be favoured, and plenty of running rugby and tries should be scored.That’s not always going to be the case though. As teams get used to the new intepretations they will adapt their game plan accordingly, and those who do will surely optimize their strengths significantly.Enough rambling though – here’s 18 tries from Round 1 & 2. We figure it’s a great way to see some of the best tries, jampacked into a few minutes. We’ll do this each week if feedback is good, so let us know. Enjoy.

Update: Shooter near campus is in Fort Worth Police custody

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Two Roadrunner Shuttle service employees got into an argument and one fired a shot. This is a Roadrunner Shuttle, but not the one involved in the incident. (Photo by Elizabeth Campbell.) printIn an effort to calm any fears after a shooting incident between Roadrunner drivers, TCU is considering having armed guards ride on the shuttles.Assistant Vice Chancellor for Public Safety Adrian Andrews said having guards, armed or unarmed, would not be a permanent change.  He said guards on the shuttles was just one option being considering.“I think it’s a smart idea,” Grace Daly, a senior strategic communication major, said. “However, I’m wondering why we didn’t have something put in place before. I feel like we should have had something done beforehand.”Some students wanted to see the idea expanded.“Having more armed security guards on campus could potentially solve issues quicker,” Will Fullerton, a senior economics major, said. However other students said more guns on campus was not the answer.“If you believe that this is going to happen no matter what, then armed guards will serve no purpose,” senior Spanish and Hispanic Studies major Garrett Gómez said. “No amount of place-holding is going to fix our mass murder by gun epidemic. We need to address the root of the problem; this is a moral fabric issue How many more people must die before we say enough is enough.”Eric Hampton is in police custody. (Photo courtesy of FWPD.)Fort Worth police gave this account of the incident. The dispute between the shuttle drivers occurred just before 6:44 a.m. Tuesday morning after one driver “bumped” another shuttle with his vehicle. After an argument, one driver fired a shot at the other driver. As he fled the scene in the shuttle, the vehicle bumped the other driver, police said.The driver was identified by Fort Worth police as 52-year-old old Eric Hampton. He faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and weapon on school property. The handgun was located at his residence and was confiscated by police.The argument occurred near the intersection of West Cantey Street and Highview Terrace just west of the Frog Alley Parking Garage.The campus was on lockdown until police found the driver around the 1200 block of Sierra Blanca at 8:45 a.m. He was taken into custody without incident, Fort Worth officer Brad Perez said.The abandoned shuttle was found by police in the 200 block East Risinger Road. — Fort Worth Police (@fortworthpd) November 7, 2017“TCU in coordination with our police department locked down the campus with an overabundance of caution to ensure that none of the students were placed in jeopardy or no one from the surrounding area,” Fitzgerald said. “We did a pretty good job of blocking the area down and tracking down the people that were involved in a dispute out here.” Campus alerts via text message, email and phone calls from the university started at about 7:14 a.m. “The alert for the campus was loud and clear,” Assistant Vice Chancellor for Public Safety Adrian Andrews said. “We got the message out to the students and faculty. We were able to lock everything down.” Sophomore Strategic Communication Major Hailey Bunde was in her room in Tom Brown/Pete Wright Apartments. “When the alarm first went off, it felt like my biggest fears were coming true, with everything else going on,” Bunde said. “I am glad TCU has such great crisis communication in place. I knew that they were keeping as informed as possible as fast as possible.”Maggie Hodes, a sophomore nursing major, said she was in the library when the alarm sounded. Hodes said she and her friend were “running around frantically” before a custodian unlocked a conference room where they hid for about an hour. She said the custodian didn’t speak much English and didn’t seem to know exactly what was going on, but recognized the students’ fear.“We looked panicked so she unlocked a room for us,” she said. Some students said they were confused after being told things were safe before an official all-clear was given out via the TCU alert system.“The alarm shut off for a while and people thought it was okay to go back outside because no one really knew,” a REC employee said. “The whole thing was kind of just a mess in terms of being prepared for it. I didn’t really feel safe.” The employee added they thought that mentioning in the TCU alert that the event was not a drill could help alleviate some confusion.Andrews said to prevent miscommunications in the future he asks students to focus on the official alert system specifically but added that overall he was proud of student reaction. “The responses were outstanding,” Andrews said. “It was a very well planned out situation for us.”Chancellor Victor Boschini said he spent the morning after the all clear was issued walking around campus to talk to people and reassure them.“Overall most of the students I spoke with were very calm and just glad the situation was resolved and over,” Boschini said. “There is a lot of unnecessary anger in our world today. I’d urge all of us to fight that feeling with every fiber in our bodies – in other words – try harder to spread and foster peace and understanding vs. senseless violence.”Student Government Association President Ben Taylor also spoke with members of the campus following the shooting and said that one employee told him, “we cannot live in fear. We must not let the danger of life change how we behave, but we must use our behavior to make a place where this doesn’t happen, but if it does, we respond fearlessly and resiliently.”“That’s what I’ve been thinking about today,” Taylor said.TCU and Fort Worth police have been hosting active shooter training seminars on campus this semester and Andrews said there will be even more now after this incident. “Most of our students, most of our faculty and staff have been trained in the active shooter training,” Andrews said. “I am telling you when I came out of the gym it was flawless. People were away from glass windows, they were going to the basements, they were making sure they were staying safe just as they have practiced before.”Others who were in the REC, however, did not have as positive as a review.“It didn’t seem like anyone had a handle on what was going on,” a REC employee said. “We didn’t really get any directions. We were just very confused the whole time.”The employee added that they think all TCU employees, even student employees, should have mandatory active shooter training instead of the voluntary option that is currently in place for many employees.Fort Worth Poice Cheif Joel Fitzgerald said the value of these active shooter trainings showed Tuesday morning. “I think if this is a catalyst for more frequent training then so be it,” he said. “Today proved that this type of training and awareness that we’ve heightened here in the TCU campus is working. Thankfully no one was injured but I think a lot has to do with the kids here have responded and the way that they locked themselves down.” Classes were canceled until noon Tuesday and shuttle service will resume once TCU police clears all drivers for service, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Kathy Cavins-Tull said.The Counseling Center, Campus Life Office, Residence Halls, Student Development Services, International and Intercultural Services and University ministries are all available to talk to students and donuts, bagels, coffee and hot chocolate are being offered in Jarvis Hall.Today’s alert of an armed person on campus was troubling. If you need to talk with someone, Dunning is there for you.

Lü’s lawyer argued before the court that his client was not guilty because the offending articles were not subversive. The organisation calls for his immediate release.- 05 April 2008Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the four-year prison sentence passed today by an intermediate court in the eastern city of Hangzhou on cyber-dissident Lü Gengsong for “inciting subversion of state authority.” Lü had spent 10 months in pretrial detention.“This sentence is further evidence of China’s continuing crackdown on dissidents,” the press freedom organisation said. “The charge on which Lu was convicted is meant to intimidate. Lü just used his right to free expression and we call on the court to revise its verdict.”Based in the southeastern province of Zhejiang and a member of the writers organisation International PEN, Lü wrote articles about corruption that he posted on the Internet. His wife said reference was made to five of his articles during the trial although the passages regarded as “subversive” were not quoted.Lu’s family received written notification from the Public Security Bureau in Xihu (near de Hangzhou) on 16 September that he would not be allowed to have lawyer because the case involved “possession of state secrets.”A petition signed by more than a thousand Chinese intellectuals published on 27 August called for Lü’s release and mentioned the promises to improve respect for human rights which Chinese officials made in 2001 when Beijing was awarded the 2008 Olympics.With six months to go to the start of the Beijing Olympics, China continues to be the world’s biggest prison for bloggers and journalists. Last year, Reporters Without Borders registered the closure of more than 2,500 websites, most of them discussion forums. “This sentence is further evidence of China’s continuing crackdown on dissidents,” the press freedom organisation said. “The charge on which Lü was convicted is meant to intimidate.
