Vodafone to Get Some Breathing Room From Emirates's Buy

05/16/2022 | 01:19am EDT

Vodafone Will Get Some Breathing Room From Emirates Telecom's Stake Purchase

0650 GMT - Emirates Telecommunications Group's acquisition of a 9.8% stake in Vodafone Group is unlikely to advance the latter's core priority of delivering market repair nor develop into a full takeover situation, Jefferies says. However, the telecom company's investment may embolden Vodafone to reset its expectations, or give it the ability to take its time delivering change, and its management expectations will likely be cleared up in its full-year results Tuesday, Jefferies analysts say in a research note. Emirates' investment will likely counteract activist influence in Vodafone's shareholder base, and should it build its stake Emirates will inject downside protection in Vodafone's shares, the bank says. Jefferies retains its hold rating and 125.0 pence price target. Vodafone shares closed Friday at 117.82 pence. (joseph.hoppe@wsj.com)

Market Talk: 

Ryanair Looks Well Positioned to Gain Market Share on Strong Fuel Hedging

0659 GMT - Ryanair is well positioned to gain market share due to its strong fuel hedging position in comparison with its peers and the delivery of 55 new Boeing aircraft--referred to as "gamechangers"--in the second half of 2022, Sathish B. Sivakumar, analyst at Citi, says in a note. The budget airline has said its fuel requirements are 80% hedged and expects the remaining 20% to give rise to some unbudgeted cost increases. The company's projection for higher-than-expected costs in fiscal 2023 has prompted a reduction in estimates by the U.S. bank. Citi now expects underlying net income for the year at EUR1.34 billion, down from EUR1.5 billion previously. Citi has a buy rating on the stock and lowers its target price to EUR18 from EUR20.
