    I have been making money on this as it seems to vacillate between five plus to four something. It’s happening a lot. I sell when it gets above five. Buy three to four.

    We see Forward Dividend & Yield of 8% plus. Are any taxes, or other fees, reflected in that number above?

    Did anyone hear $3.23 stock dividend exdividend 6/1, announced 5/25?... according to TD Ameritrade Dividend Calender.
  • B
    Fair price is at least $8. Buying as much as I can.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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."

    This stock is finally on the right track. I think it#$%$ the bottom now! A solid investment as this price especially with this dividend.

    Received dividend in cash. I was surprised by the 19% rate at which Vanguard brokerage withheld. I thought the rate was now 10%. 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

    11% dividend yield covered by its free cash flow

    Script dividend announced.
    According to the 6-k: adr record date 6/18; pay date of cash option 7/3. SEC Edgar lists 2 other 6-k's from the same date.

    I am not offering investment or tax advice, but if you're interested in my personal experience with the 2016 scrip dividend --- My share were held in street name and my broker called to ask if I wanted to take take the dividend in stock or cash. There were outsized fees for the cash option, so I opted for the stock which was not treated as taxable income (zero basis as if a return of capital). Stock issuance was a couple weeks after the cash distribution date and the number of shares issued was determined by dividend/an average price determined by a complicated formula. Not a great price, I remember thinking. Frankly, in retrospect, I put way too much effort into my 2016 decision, and, considering the still relatively small size of my holding, I think I'm going to do nothing and let the chips fall where they may. I hope someone finds this reminiscence helpful.

    Spain's competition watchdog CNMC on Friday reduced the prices legacy mobile and broadband operator Telefonica charges to let rivals access its network infrastructure.

    For people who wonder why this stock is so low, here a reason why: overregulation. It's impossible for Telefonica to make a good profit: Last friday the CNMC ordered Telefonica to cut the recurring monthly fees it charges other telecom operators by 22% on average.

    I thought it was a cash dividend. Not a share. This will be my first as a relatively newer holder.
  • E
    Easily one of the most undervalued companies on the market. 10% dividend, who isn’t buying this?
  • A
    Expect to see $7 sometime in 2021. There's value to unlock in these European telecoms. Low bond yields make these dividends very attractive.
