KPN share price below EUR 5: drastic times call for drastic measures

Monday 5 November 2012 | 13:29 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
KPN's share price is trapped in a downward spiral. On 02 November, it closed at EUR 4.83, down from a peak of EUR 12.35 in October 2010 and showing a clear downward trend from around EUR 12 in March 2011. The arrival of America Movil as a shareholder, which built up its 28 percent stake at a price of around EUR 8 per share, has not proven any help. Ziggo, which has offered since 2011 an alternative for Dutch investors, has at the same time shown a steadily rising trend since its listing in March 2011, despite the price recently taking a hit after disappointing growth figures for Q3.
