Perhaps it's the source code that could get Vodafone in trouble with law enforcement!!!
$VOD Are Technical Indicators Looking Better For Gevo, Inc. (GEVO), Vodafone Group Plc (VOD) http://postanalyst.com/2017/08/02/are-technical-indicators-looking-better-for-gevo-inc-gevo-vodafone-group-plc-vod/
Vodafone Group Plc (NASDAQ:VOD) Running Into Major Chart Resistance
One of the leading global telecommunications companies in the world is Vodafone Group Plc (NASDAQ:VOD). The stock price has been steadily rising since December 2016 when it traded as low as $24.17 a share. Today, VOD stock is trading at $30.04 a share. It is safe to say that the stock has been gaining ground in 2017.
Traders should note that VOD stock is now moving into some major chart resistance around the $31.00 level. This is an important retrace area and a place on the chart where the stock broke down in June 2016. There will most likely be a lot of institutional selling around this $31.00 chart level for VOD stock.

AT&T (NYSE:T) has been chosen as the phone's exclusive carrier in the US, and Amazon is reportedly in talks with Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD) and O2 (OTCMKTS:OTOW) to provide service in Europe. Shares of Amazon rose 0.66% in pre-market trading
Market Edge gave VOD an AVOID opinion on 3/24/2014.
Of course they base their opinions entirely on technicals
without looking at the big picture, and if the stock price
is trending down, the algorithms upon which this opinion
is made do not see things like political unrest, or whatever.
IMO, I'm looking for a bottom around May so I can add.
Figured out the answer on my previous post. It was before the Reverse Split and it was $4.92 per share.
Still puzzled with something on Verizon deal.
I cannot 'reconcile' something on the Vodafone/Verizon deal, namely, the dividend amount that I received as of 3-4-14.
What was the amount PER SHARE for the dividend and was it based on the BEFORE or AFTER split?
I originally owned 300 shares and received 163 NEW shares and the Dividend I received was $1,478.40, which translates to:
$4.928 per share based on 300 OLD Vodafone shares
$9.07 per share based on 163 NEW Vodafone shares
What is puzzling is a notice of dividend received from Ameritrade stating a $1.07 per share dividend payable 3-4-14 for shareholders of record 2-20-2014.
Yet, somewhere I remember seeing/reading that the special dividend was to be about $4.25 per share.
Anybody with any clarification on this?
Friday was a bad day for many stocks but at least VOD had
a reason. I'm betting it will bounce back. About four weeks
until completion of the VZ deal, is the news I was looking for.
Vod will be devalued equivalently with the dissolution of the vz plush the special cash dividend. Theoretically the day after the deal is done when everything opens up your shares of vz, vod and the cash should equal the same ammount of vod you hold now. I will be holding the vod and vz and using the cash to buy more vod or blk. Thats what I understand anyway. I just believe that vod has a bright future expecially getting into the indian market now. I have a buddy from india that says the cell carriers there are crap and they need a big carrier like T VZ or VOD to completely take the market. This is a 20 year hold for me. GL
weemac: So if we use values from 1-09-14 closing prices:
1 VOD = $38.85 market value
1 VZ = $47.50 market value
4 VOD = ($155.40 market value)
1 VZ = ($ 47.50 market value)
CASH = ($107.90) [difference between market values in exchange of 4 shares of VOD for 1 share of VZ)
NOW, unless there is other considerations (IE: other marketable shares in the 'NEW' Vodafone or other 'shares' with value of $107.90 or more) this could be a real losing deal for VODAFONE shareholders.
Can you add anything more to clarify this?
From what I understand we will be getting 1VZ for every 4Vod. Plus a cash div that will be settled during the closing. You can also opt to sell your vz shares during this period if you would rather have the cash. What I am afraid of is there are quite a few large euro only mutual funds that arent allowed to hold US companies. So hopefully they get to sell or settle non open market so they dont crush vz by putting millions on the ask on an open. I am taking the VZ shares and giving them to my son. GL
What will Vodafone shareholders receive if the deal goes through?
Somewhere, I read that shareholders will receive about $17.00 in cash plus shares in Verizon Communications. There was also talk about a special dividend from Vodafone.
I have 300 shares of Vodafone and am trying to figure out whether to keep this until the deal is done or sell now.
Did I call this one or what. Congrats to everybody that picked up a few blocks with me in the 27-28 range.
This rumor keeps being floated but IMO more for the pump
of AT&T stock than anything else. I'd rather see VOD stay
independent and make it's own deals in Europe, Africa and
India because it would not be afraid to pay out dividends.
Big "T" is afraid of US taxes if it paid dividends on income
from oversea business.
I have seen no specific details as yet, but there is much
speculation going on as to the best course of action for
shareholders to take. Numerous articles have appeared
on seeking alpha on this subject, one of which is linked
Using the SA search block will bring up many more. As
usual, reading the comments can be more fruitful than
the opinions of the author of the SA article.
Since every stockholder has their own investment goals,
there is no one answer to the proper course of action to
take in regards to VOD. Mine is to continue to hold, since
I am a dividend investor. No doubt much more will appear
on seeking alpha as the date of transfer draws closer.
Any details regarding special dividend to shareholders following vz transactions specially for US and Canadian shareholders?!!!
Myanmar (former Burma) is inviting VOD to be part of the
buildout of cellular service within the country.
Considering the close trading ties maintained with China,
I think it is strange China's telecoms are not being given
more significant roles.
VOD deal to take over Kabel approved, expected to complete
The bond offering by Verizon in order to purchase the 45%
wireless segment back from Vodaphone will be the largest
offering in history at 49 billion USD.
This is critical to VOD shareholders since the success of the
offering is necessary for the deal to go through. Until now
I hadn't given a lot of thought to the possibility that the deal
might not be completed, as I didn't realize how much debt
VZ would take on. VOD is off making acquisitions with money
they don't have yet in hand? It might be advisable to keep a
stop order in place for awhile.
EU submits draft law to end mobile roaming fees, carriers unhappy • 1:14 PM
As expected, EC telecom commissioner Neelie Kroes has submitted a draft law that would end mobile voice, text, and data roaming fees (in favor of flat-rate charges) for consumers traveling from one EU market to another.
Kroes proposes to achieve this by having carriers establish "alliances" with peers in other EU markets. She's giving carriers incentives (in the form of more relaxed rules on international roaming deals) to adopt the proposals by July '14.
Unsurprisingly, local carriers such as Vodafone (VOD +0.5%), Orange (ORAN +0.5%), Telefonica (TEF +1.7%), Telecom Italia (
I have been waiting for this revised SA article. A must read.
100,000 share block traded at 12:24 @32.985 and can't
determine for sure if a buy or a sell. But 52 week high
of 33.00 reached twice today should be on many alert
All of this money to be made as VOD steadily marches
upwards from the news of the 130 billion it will receive
from VZ. One of the biggest deals in stock history. And
this board only has 6 followers!
This is the most complete description of the transaction to
date. May be further updated.
SA author says article was written before agreement was
announced and was a mistake.
News starting at 5:16 BST from The Guardian newspaper.
Verizon stock to go straight to VOD shareholders.
British analysts yesterday were saying VOD was worth
over $45 a share due to the agreement with VZ. In premarket
lots of sales and going down from Fridays close of $32.40.
I thought this would open and go straight up. Anybody have
ideas of what is going to happen today?
What could this possibly have to do with VOD?
Well, nobody really knows but if you already own shares
I think you would be safe to hold and see if VOD pays a
special dividend. They should announce that soon, they
have to file an 8-K. But for the long range, I do not think
they will pay much of a dividend, as they used their VZ
dividend to do that. And the plans to go to cable when
the emerging nations are all going to cellular, does not
strike me as a good move. Europe is broke and the Russians
may cut off their gas if they get involved with war in Syria.
That war might drag them in very fast if Israel is attacked
as it will nuke Iran if it has to. VOD might make some $$
in Africa, some in India. China is tough because of the
competition with several state owned telecoms. I like the
future of VZ better.
Thank you so much for that piece of info.... But what could it mean in USD$$$
Much more information from those making guesses as to
the outcome from the UK viewpoint.
That is open to a lot of argument. Cramer thinks it will go up.
I personally am a dividend investor and think I may try to
sell at the top of the pop VOD should get, and then in a week
or so buy VZ if the price settles back down. So you have to
keep watch and do what is best for you. I'm telling my friends
to at least look at the pre-market NASDAQ link about 6:00 AM
and get a feel for how it will trade at the open. Because it
will have traded all day on the London Exchange, it may open
in the US much higher than the $32.40 Friday last trade.
