European telco M&A: are 1&1 Drilisch and Iliad ripe for takeovers?

Thursday 2 May 2019 | 13:06 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Telecompaper has compiled its own stock index since early 2018, based on all the European telecom service stocks. Some stocks have disappeared due to takeovers, such as the planned takeover of Kcom by pension funds. With hindsight, that acquisition could have been expected, as it was preceded by a sharp drop in the share price. Two other stocks in our index have shown a similar pattern that could mean they are headed for a takeover: 1&1 Drillisch and Iliad.
