    I thought it was a cash dividend. Not a share. This will be my first as a relatively newer holder.

    Lost Spanish football tv rights. "MADRID, Dec 13 (Reuters) - Spain's LaLiga has reached an agreement to sell its domestic broadcasting rights to Movistar and DAZN for 4.95 billion euros ($5.59 billion) over five years, it said in a statement on Monday.The deal is a record for the top-flight soccer league as its last contract, signed with Telefonica in 2018, was a three-year agreement for 2.940 billion euros."

    Reuters 12/28 report: 2,700 job cuts in Spain with union agreement; 15% of TEF workforce. $1.7 billion charge this year. $230 million/annual savings going forward. So, more streamlining, business focus, margin improvement?

    Is it worth it with ADR Mgmt fee and Dividend yield?

    Um, I'm long (tiny position) because I think the sum of the parts is more than the combined entity, and in due course some sort of re-org will liberate this value. However, as to what that "entity" is ...
    I see that they have contracted Wipro to rent them out a million onshorer bodies to introduce them to CI/CD, IaC and modern devops like everyone else did 5 or 10 years ago. They sure need help, altho whether a million cheapie onshorers is what they need, that's another question.
    In 2017 I was on a contract to sort out a large client's silly mess. A new boss was appointed, who had been a senior consultant at TEF, for a long time, basically was a flesh manifestation of TEF's software and infra technology management.
    When I told this person about CI/CD automation, git, IaC, ansible, Terraform, and a bunch of things that everyone in this industry has heard about since 5 or 10 years, not one single thing I said was in any way familiar or even heard of ever before. It became clear during my many conversations with this manager that management inadequacy was the main problem at TEF, and was now also the problem with this new mess that said manager had stepped into. Ironically, this client's mess was the result of previous management incapability, now compounded by the influx of ex-TEFers.
    Moral: those millions of Wipro onshorers have got their work cut out for them.

    I review earning and liked what I saw. Apparently Europe and Wall street did not like it. Not sure what the expected earnings was, but the reduced debt by 30% so far this year, indicated that they have funds to maintain the dividend and intend to maintain the dividend- announced a Dec and June dividend, had some growth in their continuing operations, bought back stock, and have successfully continued their plan to get back to growth.

    I have been stuck with Santander and Telefonica for a decade, so as you can imagine they are my biggest losses. I had thought I was conservative investing in stocks that pay great dividends. It turns out they are dividend traps. I didn't understand how messed up Europe is in terms of its socialist policies. Telefonica keeps borrowing to invest in its infrastructure while not being able to charge more for service improvements. Consolidations are much needed in Europe for telco and banking but European policies prevent them.

    And now it whipsawed back up 4.51% after it fell down by the nearly same amount this morning. Crazy.

    Great Q1 results., 15c eps against 6c in Q1 2020. Huge improvement. Debt declines rapidly. Given outlook is good. Dividend over 2021 confirmed at 30 cents. That means it is covered by its earnings twice this year.

    Does this company pay dividends on a consistent basis? That is a very nice dividend, if so. I bought a few thousand shares for an initial position to see how it traded and plan on adding as I'm retired and want a nice dividend to take some pressure off the the increases in just about everything under the sun and that will never change overall. After reviewing the history and looking at their contracts and business in general, I like what I see, Schwab has it listed as not paying dividends. Thought I'd ask those involved here. Any reply that addresses this aspect would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Being priced like it's going out of business; but it's not. They hold lots of debt, but at very low interest rates, so this stock is very mispriced right now. Could be a double within a year as investors realize it's dividend is sustainable, and these Euro telecoms are nearly all undervalued...

    Received dividend in cash. I was surprised by the 19% rate at which Vanguard brokerage withheld. I thought the rate was now 10%. https://taxsummaries.pwc.com/peoples-republic-of-china/corporate/withholding-taxes I was l not surprised but still not thrilled by the +10% reduction for "fees." It is always high but I wonder if it higher still because of conversion from the scrip dividend. I have always #$%$umed such fees were charged by Compuserve, the adr transfer agent; is this #$%$umption wrong? Any enlightenment on these points would be a help. Thanks.

    Market cap is 20bn but fcf is 5bn. In four years it can generate enough cash to buy all equities
