    Deutsche Telekom aims for majority stake in T-Mobile US by 2024By Christiaan Hetzner, May 20, 2021 12:02 PM CDTDeutsche Telekom plans to secure the majority stake in U.S. wireless carrier T-Mobile by 2024 in order to help facilitate its expansion in Germany.The Bonn-based firm hopes surging profits at its previously fully owned subsidiary will finance the investments needed to connect millions of German households to the Internet via ultra-fast fiberglass networks.Chief Executive Tim H�ttges told reporters Deutsche Telekom had a number of tools at its disposal to raise its stake above the 43% it currently owns in T-Mobile. ?When exactly this will happen is something we?re keeping to ourselves, but we have until 2024,? he said on Thursday.In June that year, call options on Softbank's 8.6% stake in T-Mobile expire, giving Deutsche Telekom the right to purchase 44.9 million shares for a fixed price of $101.46 each, a discount of nearly 25% from T-Mobile's closing price on Wednesday. It can also acquire a further 56.6 million shares at the going market price. Management also said T-Mobile?s planned $60 billion share buyback between 2023 and 2025 would, over time, boost Deutsche Telekom's stake naturally.?We definitely want to get to 50% plus one share. More would always help though,? H�ttges said, adding that gaining clear control over the U.S. associate was his top priority. Expansion plansDeutsche Telekom plans to roll out fiberglass broadband internet to 10 million customers and cover virtually the entire country with 5G mobile networks by 2024.To achieve this, more than #$%$5.5 billion ($6.7 billion) in investment is earmarked for Germany this year alone, excluding any potential costs for buying spectrum.T-Mobile US is expected to help fund these costs thanks to $7.5 billion in annual synergies from its merger with Sprint, 25% more than forecast when the deal was completed in April last year. Deutsche Telekom once fully owned T-Mobile US but its holding was diluted when T-Mobile merged with MetroPCS Communications Inc. and listed on the New York Stock Exchange. T-Mobile's acquisition of Sprint further diluted Deutsche Telekom's stake.The German state still owns close to a third of Deutsche Telekom

    Closed my entire position last week at 21.06. Not interested in returning unless dividends payouts at least 2x per year. Made a quick $785 after fees/taxes on the trade. Will keep it on my watch list to follow any large downward movements - possibly buying the dips. GOOD solid company but small daily volume and history as an ADR too short for real comfort.

    Deutsche Telekom shares advance on earnings beat and raised guidance

    https://www.reuters.com/technology/deutsche-telekom-raises-guidance-after-strong-q1-2021-05-12/

    Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) raised its 2021 profit guidance on Wednesday after a strong showing by its businesses in the United States and Europe in the first quarter, with group revenue and core profit beating market estimates.

    Shares rallied by 2% on the results and guidance, which analysts said represented a show of strength at Deutsche Telekom's operations outside the United States despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “We are sustaining momentum and continuing our successful growth story,” said Chief Financial Officer Christian Illek. “Our customer numbers and key financial metrics are on track on both sides of the Atlantic.”

    Jefferies analyst Ulrich Rathe said the quarterly report "bodes well" for Deutsche Telekom's forthcoming capital markets presentation over May 20-21, when management is due to present new mid-term targets.

    Following raised guidance from U.S. business T-Mobile (TMUS.O), which has already reported results, Deutsche Telekom also nudged up the 2021 outlook for profit and cash flow at its European operations. read more

    It now expects group adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation after leases (EBITDA AL) to exceed 37 billion euros ($44.8 billion) and free cash flow after leases to exceed 8 billion euros.

    Previously core profit had been forecast at about 37 billion euros and free cash flow at around 8 billion euros.

    First-quarter revenue increased by 32.3% to 26.39 billion euros, beating consensus estimates of 25.595 billion euros in a poll of analysts published by the company.

    EBITDA AL rose 41.3% to 9.245 billion euros, also topping market expectations.

    After stripping out one-off gains from T-Mobile's acquisition of smaller U.S. rival Sprint, which closed a little more than a year ago, revenue grew by 7.1% in the quarter and adjusted EBITDA AL by 8.3% on an organic basis.

    The one-off effects will drop out of the equation from the second quarter.

    Seems like a good way to get a small dividend, stabilize market volatility, and gain on upside potential from T-Mobile. Looks like a good play for a Roth IRA as Germany Telecoms don't get taxes on dividend payments.

    From Zacks Ratings:
    Deutsche Telekom AG: Headquartered in Bonn, Germany, Deutsche Telecom is one of the largest telecommunications service providers in Europe. In addition to its strong position in the domestic market, the company is likely to benefit from the accretive post-merger integration of T-Mobile US Inc. and Sprite in the United States in which it owns about 43%. The removal of forced cable TV access in multiple dwelling units in Germany through a telecom legislation is likely to help the company expand its broadband market. Moreover, an aggressive fiber rollout strategy across the country is likely to augment its domestic market hold. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings has been revised 23% upward over the past year. The stock carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) and has gained 38.8% in the past year.

    Yahoo is reporting a "forward dividend" that is double the "trailing dividend". Is that an error? The CEO talks about returning capital to shareholders, but only after 2 years out.

    Starting to get really annoying how DTEGY stock has no relationship lately with TMUS even though they own over 560 million shares if it. Looks like stub spread is the cheapest EVER today. DTEGY is the cheapest ever in relationship to TMUS. DTEGY should sell some of TMUS stock and roll proceeds into DTEGY stock. DTEGY very cheap plus you get a 4.29% divi.
