    Because I have my VOD in a IRA , tax is not a problem , my question is it seems most posters rate

    VOD a "Buy" or a "Strong Buy" and I'm not to sure why? PPS has flattened out, personally I thought we were going to be much higher, wrong again. Why Hold if we are pretty much at our high ?? I appreciate all constructive reply's. TIA

    • The PPS should improve as uncertainties regarding the deal are removed, and chances of break up diminish. Still, and I hope I am wrong, I do not see the share price much above $35 by then. If the tax consequences are as described here, many will want to sell before the ex-date to avoid paying taxes on the dividends.

      After the ex-date, if VOD is yielding in the 5%-6% range it could be an attractive investment...but do not count on the possibility of an American company coming in to buy the remains of VOD. The political ramifications of that move are just too great get any backing from the British government.

      Sentiment: Buy
