What woulde you do if you were one of the two major sharholders who control this company? That will be the decision. I seriously doubt it will be back before the big "A" owner increeased their share as they won't want to miss out on the payment so my guess would be it would be Nov 29, 2012 (one year later than the last ex- div date) In this way new buyers can jump in for the dividend drivning up the price per share.
IMHO It would be really great if Algeria could be resolved prior to year end and the capital/debt ratio moved back closer to to from the current 2.4.
Again IMHO as long time long
What's IMHO? Was there dilution on VIP shares - the acquisition was too complex for me to understand the net effect, I know telecom has great free cash flow. In a low interest environment, leverage cheap money to acquire is understandable, Either it sells some parts or issue more low interest bond, either way, it is telecom company with strong franchise. Before acquisition, It's like VOD that is reducing its debt. The speed to create market dominance and scale seem to be the right strategy, the increase income can service the debt comfortably, I am interested in the EPS with the increase data traffic, hopefully, the growth and average revenue per unit will shot up quickly with the transformation of USSR economy. Do you see the growth should be higher than At&T ? I like CHL as well with its strong balance sheet.
