Passengers at Heathrow's Terminal 5.

Ferrovial rubbing its hands ahead of possible Heathrow airport extension

Ferrovial, which owns 25% of Heathrow, could benefit from the possible extension of the airport’s installations: apart from being able to participate in the construction of a third runway, the increase in the number of passengers would mean higher revenues, profits and dividends for the Spanish services and infrastructure operator.

Telefónica saves the day with 4-year and 15-year bond issues

It’s definitely not Telefónica finest hour. Problems with the possible listing of its UK affiliate O2 after the pound’s slump can be added to the fiasco with the IPO of its infrastructure subsidiary Telxius. The company is worried about having its rating cut and it doesn’t know how it can cut its massive 52 billion euros debt pile. But on Monday it returned to the debt market and successfully placed 2 billion euros in 4-year and 15-year bonds.

Inditex Is Pricey But It Still Has Years Of Upside

The Gallegan fashion retailer never fails to amaze us with its growth capacity, which is also healthy. As of now, it is not just the leading Spanish company in stock market terms but also one of the three or four in the Eurostoxx 50 worth over 100 billion euros.

Telefonica’s Blown It With Telxius IPO

These are not good times for IPOs. Telefónica has been obliged to cancel the IPO of its infrastructure affiliate Telxius, with the agreement of the placement banks. With the stock market listing, Telefonica had hoped to reduce its hefty debt pile of over 52 billion euros. But market pressure has forced it to backtrack. Telefónica’s shares opened down 4% on Friday. So far this year, the shares have still lost over 8%.

Bankia’s CEO Goirigolzarri still doesn’t convince the markets

When the former CEO of BBVA, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri (62) arrived at Bankia in 2012, the most critical year for the bank (19.2 billion euros of losses), everyone celebrated his appointment. They saw it as a guarantee that Bankia would succeed in getting back on its feet within the expected timeframe, not only in terms of its business but also terms of its stock market valuation.
