Telefonica Holds Up Well In The Stock Market After Dividend Cut

Telefonica’s stock price held up much better than expected after the multinational announced it will cut its dividend this year and next. The shares finally closed down 1% after falling as much as 4% in the first few hours of the session. It seems that investors have understood that, on the one hand, it is the company’s best option for reducing debt; and, on the other, that the dividend yield is still very attractive.


Santander results: Attributable profit grows 18%

Ana Is No Miracle Worker

The first thing that should be said about Ana Botin is that only a few weeks after taking over the reins of Santander in September 2014, she left no-one in doubt that she planned to put that house in order and take the bank’s problems seriously. After a wave of restructuring, including lay-offs and bank closures, things have turned nasty again for Santander in the first half of this year, with Brexit and Brazil key complications.

Gas Natural: Cash-Flow Will Support Capex And Dividend Without Need To Hike Debt

José Benito de Vega | Gas Natural’s shares have been volatile in the last few months due to results which were worse than analysts’ consensus, coupled with a strategic plan which disappointed the market. But the stock price has recovered in the last two months and has outperformed the Ibex 35 index by 7.6% so far this year.


Heathrow Ferrovial

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

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.
