Take it from me, Ultimate Stock Alerts (google search) is the real deal. Got two alerts in 4
days and both delivered 150%+ gains
Bumfuzzled on where the chap Ian Lyall is grabbing this 320p figure. Was out most of last week so just now digging through stuff as I catch my breath. Sometimes vacations don't seem worth it!
Thanks Smalls for the GS snippet. Yes funny they give a PT of 320p when previously it was reported at 280p. At 320p its getting nearer your PT of 340p. I would be happy to achieve my PT of 300p. That would give me a great profit plus almost 6 years of dividends.
From a caption in Proactive Investors
"The gist seems to be that Vodafone may buy something or be bought – either way there seems to be some upside, according to Goldman, which values the stock at 320p."
Vodafone upgraded by Goldman - just don't ask why!

Interesting opinion on the Goldman upgrade. I don't seem to be able to find any other media info to support where he says Goldman values VOD at 320p when Goldman's PT upgrade was to 280p. Nowhere. Maybe you can find Nige? 320p would be really close to a fair takeover price. 340p seems more appropriate but 320p likely enough to see a thumbs up from a BOD and majority of shareholders.
What I have been posting for some time now. VOD set to become EU version of VZ in the U.S. The little guys will have to allow themselves to be eaten or get crushed. The last paragraph mirrors my opinion FWIW.
No reply from iii but I am now getting junk email from the U.K.! 50 day? Possible bounce but with the gap and the current market negativity I wouldn't be surprised with an intraday dip below 210p support to close the gap before the big run at 230p.
Smalls, Its funny, brokers are playing catch up, regarding future price targets, but they are coming around to our way of thinking. Lol. I think we may move down to close the gap of 10 Nov of 207.95p before we have a sustained push above 230p, then attempt 250p. Although we could bounce off the 50 day MA? Do you have any thoughts on this. Regarding iii, have you had any reply yet?
Nige, I had to run a search to gander at my old posts about the 230p resistance TA you posted this morning (and yesterday on iii). My old post is in line with that new TA referenced article. The intriguing piece of the puzzle is the ~280p price target I posted back in October is in line with the new top-of-the-market Goldman Slacks PT of 280p. 230p needs broken with volume. Moderate to firm resistance ~250p may or may not be as strong as 230p.
Thecsuite Reports - Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) shares are meanwhile struggling to find any meaningful upside momentum. Resistance at 230p remains a key barrier beyond which VOD buyers have been unable to push this telecom stock. As such we are seeing some consolidation below this point in anticipation of a potential break higher. Indeed, the run up to this region was characterised by intense buying interest and once gets the sense that the stock is like a coiled spring looking to make its next break up.
Look at 220p as the key level of support, below which the upside scenario is invalidated.
An ascending 50-day moving average suggests that the stock still has potential for a rise.
Do not compare VOD to US carriers. VOD is the only game in town. (Europe) they have the cash and are building for growth. NO competitors no price cutting worries.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
as other posters have explained, vod pays its dividends twice a year- the one in february is called the interim dividend- it is usually about half of what is paid in august- yahoo calculates its yield based on the last dividend paid- so there figure is not accurate- the best way to do it is total the two dividends and divide that sum by the share price on the last day of the year- for me, i calculate the yield by dividing the annual dividend total by my basis in the stock- i don't care what new buyers are going to yield, i care what i am getting for a yield- however, based on the verizon wireless sale last year, my calculation for yield is now a lot more complex having to account for the cash received and the verizon stock
with the unemployment at 5.8% you,the fool, appears to be still looking for a job.
It’s just a matter of time before Europe starts QE, (IMHO, within first 6 months of 2015.) Then VOD should fly with years of growth ahead of her, in prime position. VOD to be the new Verizon of Europe. Happy days.
