    France Telecom 8% below!!! -23% this year!!!


    FTE should be trading at $17.50-$18 normally.....may be more with excellent yield.....!!!!

    The French company’s shares have fallen 23 percent this year, outpacing a 15 percent decline in the Bloomberg Europe Telecommunications Index, valuing it at about 32 billion euros.

    • Why is FT underperforming.... Maybe they should start cutting expenses. Does anyone know if they have operations in the U.S so I can complain? Maybe we should all attend the investor meeting to raise our concerns.

    • It went to 5 bucks in 2003...technically it's headed back there. No support here...

      I would go with VOD or T

      Dividend also very much in doubt.

      French downgrade is also a factor. May be downgraded more in future and yes it does affect FTE.

      Just too many dings against this and it's not diversified enough geographically. Too levered to France.

      Bottom fishing in this market is very difficult no use adding more complications.

      TEF - same boat....

      Sometimes you just have to ignore the dividend.

    • Just because it is cheap, does not mean it won't get cheaper. I am looking to buy this one but I'll wait until Europe's promblems worsen. I see and hear many more negatives than positives coming out of Europe and China. The market lows and swings of 2008 may be back in the picture soon.

      • From another poster on this board:
        "The divident of 1.40 euro should be safe for 2012. In the event that Nicolas Sarkosy does not get reelected, the socialist Francois Hollande if elected will no doubt go after the CAC 40 companies paying dividents.
        This is viewed as "unfair" practices to the socialists."
        Realistic fear? Any thoughts? You know what happens to the stock price when a company reduces or drops the dividend, right?
